Below are some helpful tips to make your email inquiry best understood, and the type of details you should provide in order to receive the most complete information possible.

Travel Tips: Writing inquiry Emails to Tour and Transfer companies

..

MAKE YOUR EMAIL EASILY UNDERSTOOD

.

If you are inquiring about multiple services, it helps to keep your email inquiry as concise as possible and stick with outlining the most important details.

If you contact companies abroad, there is the high probability that you are dealing with locals from that country whose English is not their first language.  To be best understood, use simple and straightforward words (refraining from abbreviations or slang) may prevent misunderstandings or requests for clarification.

.

TRANSFER INQUIRIES

.

.

By offering the following simple basic details you will receive complete information, and expedite your inquiry as the company will not be required to follow up with questions necessary for them to provide information. You will save time of reducing unnecessary follow up emails that can take up to 24 hours between each response.
.

Your Transfer inquiry email should include the following
.

  •  Type of Transfer (Airport Transfer or Civitavecchia Transfer)
  •  Date and Time of service (because day time and night time rates may differ)
  •  Pick up Location and Drop off Location
  •  Number of Persons in your party
  •  Estimated amount of luggage (so a proper vehicle size would be quoted for you).

.

Any additional information would be helpful: Such as if traveling with young children that might require a child seat or booster seat, traveling with a wheelchair that may require extra space in the luggage compartment.

When contacting a company for tours,  to save time and not waste time,  please take a few minutes to read through the company’s website to familiarize yourself with the type of tours they offer to ensure they can meet your needs.

Are you looking for a walking tour? If yes, a private or a group tour?

Are you looking for a tour by car? If yes, a private or a shared tour?

You can find such basic information on just about any tour provider’s website so you know you are contacting the right company for your needs.

On Stefano’s RomeCabs website we provide a wealth of information from detailed transfer and tour descriptions, How To videos, links to purchase admission tickets, and more.  We created our website to be as informative as possible for our clients’ most common and important questions to be answered simply by reading our website.

By browsing through a company’s website you might find answers to questions you previously had, and get ideas for tours you may not have previously considered.  When you learn more about tours that interest you, you can zero in on more specific information you may need so you will be provided more detailed information.
.

Your Tour inquiry email should include the following:
.

  • Type of Tour you are interested in. You can mention the tours by name from the company’s website, or mention the sites, towns, regions you are interested in visiting.
  •  Your Pick up  & Drop Off Location (Are you interested in a Day tour starting from Rome or a Shore Excursion from Italy’s cruise ports, Pre-Cruise or Post-Cruise Tour)
  •  Date of Tour(s) to ensure the sites in your preferred tour will be open for visits on your tour day
  • Number of Persons in your party

.

Any additional information would be helpful: Such as if traveling with young children that might require a child seat or booster seat, if any members in your party have mobility issues that would prevent them from walking or standing too long.

Whether you are arriving in Rome on a land trip or to begin your cruise, likely you will arrive at Fiumicino Airport.  Fiumicino Airport is the largest international airport in the region, and it can be pretty chaotic.

Unlike many airports, the baggage claims area where you collect your luggage at FCO (Fiumicino) airport is security restricted – meaning nobody without a valid airline ticket or special security clearance can access that area.   Therefore,  everyone who is waiting for friends and loved ones to arrive via FCO – including private drivers, must wait in a designated area in the main waiting hall of the arrival terminal.
.

This helpful video shows you where your driver will meet you and also offers helpful information such as using luggage trolleys to easily carry your luggage out from the baggage claims, use the complimentary wheelchair service for those with mobility issues, and what to do in case your flight arrives ahead of schedule or if you experience delays.

 It’s a MUST for any RomeCabs clients to watch prior to arriving at FCO Airport.

Traveling to Italy this summer? Don’t forget to bring THESE with you

3 Jun Summer in Rome with RomeCabs

 

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs Transfer and Tour blog. Our mission is to help you turn our trip to Italy into a vacation of a lifetime with our private transfers, day tours and shore excursions to many of Italy’s top destinations.

Summer is by far the most popular time millions of people worldwide travel to Italy on their summer vacations. While many travelers prefer to travel light (less luggage), especially when summer clothes take up such little space, there are a few things that you should bring with.

.

Traveling to Italy this summer?
Don’t forget to bring THESE with you

.

1 Comfortable Shoes

Summertime often means sandals, flip flops, and fashionable high heels… except in many places in Italy where you will come across cobblestones, uneven pavement, uphill and downhill streets,  and archaeological sites with dirt and stones.

In Italy, ditch the flip flops for the beach and wear comfortable foot supporting walking sandals or shoes that will protect your feet from injury or tripping.

.

2  Sun block, Sunglasses, Sunhat

The Mediterranean sun is strong in the summer, make sure you protect your skin, eyes, and head while sightseeing outdoors.   

You can also also purchase these in Italy as they are widely available if you forget to bring yours or would like to do some shopping in Italy.
.

3 Bring something to cover your shoulders and knees inside churches.

If your wardrobe consists of sleeveless tops and shorts, dresses, or skirts that are above the knee, be sure to bring something with you that you can cover your shoulders and knees in event you wish to visit the amazing churches in Italy.

Many churches impose a modesty dress code that includes covering your shoulders and knees.
.

What not to wear in Italy Churches

.

If you prefer to have flexibility and be spontaneous with your sightseeing destinations, bring something light with you that you can carry in your small day bag that not only you can use to cover up while visiting your favorite churches, but also to use in the evening when the temperature cools down and a shawl or a sleeved top will take away the chill.

.

4 Bring a Portable Water Bottle

It’s very hot in Italy in the summer, so it’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day.

Buying bottled water can cost 2 Euros or more at kiosk vendors near tourist attractions. At most cafes tourist markets, you find them at about 1 Euros each. At the local supermarket about 25 cents.

Even if you buy a pack of bottled water from a local market and keep them refrigerated in your room, you’d go through your first bottle of water by mid morning. You can either refill the same bottle of water throughout the day, or just bring a portable and refillable water bottle with you that you can reuse throughout your vacation.

Many fountains in large cities like Rome serve cold fresh natural drinking water, one of the best ways to quench your thirst in the Eternal City

You can also buy a large cold bottle of water from the market of cafe and use it to refill smaller bottles if you are traveling with family or friends.

5 A Back-up Piece of Luggage.

While many travelers travel light, when they arrive in Italy they find so many wonderful things to buy that their luggage suddenly cannot contain all their new purchases.  By bringing a light cloth duffel bag, you have enough space for your belongings and your new treasures.

And don’t forget… starting the the 2nd week of July is the much anticipated Summer Sale that hits all the major clothing, shoes, and accessories shops in Italy.  Your shopping spree just became more exciting and affordable!
