Tips for the right Rome holiday travel package.

It is not usually wise to be traveling during holidays as these are the times when almost every other person in the world is traveling. It is of course best to plan ahead or book ahead and go to your destination early to avoid all the hassle but if you're one of those last minute people or probably one of those who can't really avoid it, you should follow the next few tips for a better journey and maybe a cheaper stay.

- Rome holiday travel packages were never made with only one person in mind; no two people are alike, keep this in mind because the agencies that packed them have kept these in mind, use this fact to haggle your way into cheaper or sometimes better deals. Even if there are ready made packages, you can ask for extra perks especially if you're staying in Rome for more than a week.

- Be careful of travel agents. Travel agents may give you the best deal for your package, which normally include airfare, lodgings and transportation, but a really good agent can be really flexible. One example would be if you want a rental car for the first half of your Rome trip but you want to get rid of it by the second half, a good agent can arrange this for you, sometimes for a cheaper price.

- Be sure that the package you want is available, you don't want to get pulled into something that ends up being sold out, some people give out too-good-to-be-true packages which end up being "sold out" in the end, so before you make a deal or transfer a morsel of cash, make sure that it is still


available.

- Be sure to know exactly what airline and route your taking, you won't want those unpleasant layovers which can be a real pain, not to mention delay your schedule.

- A sign of a good Rome holiday travel package is one that is very flexible, as said before, no two people are alike, and a good package should reflect that, it should allow you to choose between airlines, as well as brands and lodgings without changing the price. A choice in which rental car to take is also a sign of a good package.

- Finally, it's good to ask for discounts that you might get if you do certain stuff, like stay in the hotel for more than a week, or sign up on the internet instead of by phone. Research first before you cough up the money for down-payment; make sure you've exhausted all possible discount generating ways before you decide on a package.

That's all about Rome holiday travel packages for now. In my next article, I'll explain more of my travel tips for your time in Rome.

Best wishes for a great vacation,
