How NOT to Become a Victim of Airport Transfer Scams and Impostor Websites in Rome

Rome Cabs Transfers
.
Don’t Become a Victim of Airport Transfer Scams and  taken for a ride by Fake and Impostor websites in Rome that copy legitimate companies’ names to dupe and mislead tourists.
 .
Copycat websites are not new in the World Wide Web we’ve come to depend on for so much. It’s even more devious when it hits international tourists who don’t know the difference between honest and shady companies abroad. Human nature tends to be trusting, after all, if a someone creates a website, provides a service for a fee, and there is no scandal that surrounds them online, it means they are genuinely operating a sound business. That’s not always the case.
.
Many companies have invested so much over the years to establish themselves as reliable, recommended and trusted in the industry. Like us, many have cemented a name for themselves based on their sound reputation for operating an honest and dependable business travelers have come to trust and rely on. That’s when fly-by-night unknowns appear on the scene with names and websites very similar to existing companies, and this often confuse travelers in booking with them. How do they do this?
 .
They use website names suspiciously similar to the established company they’re targeting.  One example of such practice is,  for instance, when you google Rome Cabs, in addition to the official and ONLY Rome Cabs website: www.RomeCabs.com, you will find websites that use variations and added words like transfer or booking after RomeCabs.
.
Or they employed SEO techinques so their website headliner may read Rome Cab or RomeCabs, but their website address is something completely different! Always compare the website address to the headliner.
Other scam artists spend money on Google adwords and use our company name in the header to mislead clients thinking we are them!
.
Some also create email addresses bearing the same name or suspiciously similar as the company they target….with a @hotmail, @gmail, @yahoo, or any other variations at the end. People who don’t know the difference can be easily mislead and confused.
.
 When the name of the company,  their website address and content do not match, be aware.
 .

HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOURSELVES FROM ONLINE IMPOSTORS and UNRELIABLE COMPANIES?

 .
There are ways to protect yourself from becoming a victim of unscrupulous online companies.
.

* ALWAYS book your service with established companies that come highly recommended by sources you trust. When it comes to your and your loved ones’ safety, you should not leave anything to chance.

* NEVER blindly google or search the company name online to obtain their website. This is what copycat websites are counting on because here is where people become confused. The title tag above the website can be influenced by key words, and it may not represent the actual company name.

* ALWAYS make sure you have the correct company website address. When you ask for recommendations, make sure you also receive the website address along with the company name.

* ALWAYS contact the company by typing in their official website on your browser, never based on a search engine search.

* If you accidentally click on the wrong website, pay attention to anything that seems off. If you notice:

  • the company name on the website is different
  • the prices are different, the services are different,
  • the website does not look professional
  • or they have non-Italian phone numbers
  • these usually signs that you may be on the wrong website and if you may unintentionally book with the wrong company.

.

* NEVER book your car service based on cheap and deeply discounted prices. The way most fly-by-night and impostor websites get clients is by offering very low prices compared to most established companies who invest in quality and safe service. .

Please know that when it comes to private car service you really do get what you pay for. A responsible car service company in Rome cannot survive offering cheap and deeply discounted prices below market value without cutting dangerous corners on vehicle safety and proper maintenance, insurance, quality of service, or even breaking laws.

.

When you are booking car service online from unknown companies and websites offering cheap prices, you can get taken for a ride in more ways than one, and worse: you can potentially put your personal safety at risk!

.

We have received untold number of calls from desperate travelers stranded at the airport or the cruise port (many of them elderly) because their drivers never showed up. In all these cases, they booked service via cheap copy-cat websites thinking they booked with the REAL Rome Cabs.
.

Fly-by-night and copycat websites typically have nothing to lose since they do not depend on their reputation and word of mouth for their business. They often operate on multiple websites, so if they garner enough bad reputation online via one website, they simply shut it down and open another.
.

Don’t become a victim of online impostors and unscrupulous companies no matter what type of service you are seeking, protect yourselves and your loved ones on your trips abroad. After all, safety first! There are many honest, established and reputable companies to chose from, so which ever company you select to book with, do so only after careful consideration based on reliable information, and with diligence in making sure you are booking with the intended company.

See Circus Maximus with the imposing backdrop of Palatine Hill

Visit the Pantheon – the incredible ancient Roman pagan temple converted into a Christian church

PANORAMIC ROME FOR CRUISERS

.

Panoramic Rome for Cruisers offers a panorama of the Eternal City with a taste of Rome’s highlights and a few surprises.

This popular tour was created in response to increasing demand from cruisers requesting a more relaxing tour, avoid highly crowded places such as the Vatican Museums and Colosseum, and have flexibility without advance  purchased non-refundable tickets with strict time slots (again, such as the Vatican Museums and Colosseum).

This tour is also an excellent option on the 1st Sunday of the Month when it’s not possible to visit the Vatican Museums as they are closed and the Colosseum has free entrance which results in hours’ long wait in long lines.

Our Panoramic tour offers the following fun filled suggested itinerary:

Piazza della Rotonda with the monumental breathtaking Pantheon.

Enjoy a taste of La Dolce Vita with visits to Rome’s most popular and lively squares: Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and Piazza Navona.

Venture to Ancient Rome and enjoy a sweeping view of the Roman Forum from top of Capitoline Hill

From Colosseum Square, you can take in the massive awe inspiring Colosseum before you.  If you walk a bit further, you can also see close up the giant Arch of Constantine (one of the 3  triumphal arches closely located – the other 2 are inside the Roman Forum and you can see them from top of Capitoline Hill)

A visit to the 12th century Basilica of San Clemente will surprise you with an underground journey back in time to Ancient Rome as you peel off the layers of Rome’s 2,000 year old history.  On this amazing underground journey you will explore an early 4th century church upon which the current one was built, and further below the remains of a 3rd century ancient Roman apartment complex with a Mythraic temple dedicated to Mithras – an ancient Roman pre-Christianity cult.

* VACANZE ROMANE / ROMAN HOLIDAY  

.

Vacanze Romane / Roman Holiday Tour evokes nostalgic sentiments of the old classic movies that still live in our hearts.  Roman Holiday is one of the many unforgettable classics filmed in Rome (another that has captured our hearts is La Dolce Vita).
Our sister company Stefano Rome Tours has created a FUNtastic Rome tour that takes you many of the famous locations in the 1953 movie Vacanze Romane / Roman Holiday starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

Vacanze Romane/ Roman Holiday Tour suggests the following itinerary of Rome’s most classic locations:
.

A visit to the Colosseum to explore the colossal ancient Roman amphitheater.

A drive through Piazza Venezia will take you to Capitoline Hill for a picture perfect view of the Roman Forum.

You will continue your drive past Teatro Marcello to the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin to see the Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verita). If you don’t mind the line, you can have your own pictures taken infamously putting your hand inside the mouth of truth and hope it won’t bite you should you telling a lie!

A stop for a stroll along the beautiful Ponte Sant’Angelo bridge that’s next to Castel Sant’Angelo – the mausoleum of ancient Roman emperor Hadrian that was later converted into a medieval fortress, a prison and then a castle with ornate quarters.

Trevi Fountain has been featured in so many classic movies that it most definitely merits a visit, along with the elegant Spanish Steps.

No movie buff would miss the opportunity to stroll along Via Margutta – the street made famous as the actual address of Gregory Peck’s character: Via Margutta 51. It’s a quiet, pristine, charming oasis in the middle of a chaotic city.

Last and not least, a visit to the fabulous Pantheon will complete your Vacanze Romane / Roman Holiday tour.

SEVEN WONDERS OF ANCIENT ROME

.

Ancient Rome history buffs  frequently choose our Seven Wonders of Ancient Rome Tour for the wonderful experience of exploring ancient Rome’s most fascinating engineering feats we can see in their monuments, roads, buildings, aqueducts, and ruins.

Your Rome tour through the Seven Wonders of Ancient Rome will first take you to the Colosseum – one of the world’s greatest examples of Roman architectural and engineering achievements.

Nearby, you will see what remains of Circus Maximus, the largest chariot racing and sports arena of Ancient Rome.

The Imperial Baths of Caracalla will leave you in awe as you walk through the giant structures that are all that remains from Emperor Caracalla’s massive complex that included Olympic size swimming pool, cold and hot baths, gymnasiums, Greek and Latin libraries, conference rooms, and more.

.

.

 

You will next drive to the 4th century Ancient Appian Way – known as “Regina Longarum Viarum,” or “Queen of the Long Roads”, and one of the most important strategic roads of the Roman Republic. Segments of this ancient road are impressively well preserved so you can have an overall idea of what an ancient Roman road was like.

The Park of the Aqueducts is not a regular park, but jaw dropping display of remnants of some of the seven major aqueducts of Rome that were Rome’s lifeblood, carrying water uphill and downhill for long distances.

The Pantheon is always a favorite… regardless of the theme or subject of a tour.  And it’s also one of the Seven Wonders of Ancient Rome, followed by Trajan’s Forum which will complete your tour.

Just across the Roman Forum, Trajan’s Forum is a testament of Ancient Rome’s golden age of architectural wonders commissioned by ambitious Emperors, and overwhelmed visitors for ages. What is most visible still is Trajan’s Column (a victory column that details Trajan’s successful campaign against the Dacians – modern day Romania), and Trajan’s Market – possibly the world’s first shopping mall!

3 Common Mistakes that Ruin Your Summer Trip to Rome – by RomeCabs

What not to wear when visiting Rome Churches - RomeCabs

 

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs Transfer and Tour Blog.

There’s nothing like summer in Rome: long days to enjoy more monuments, squares and museums, warm evenings for romantic dinner at an outdoor restaurant, and lots and lots of gelato!

Summer is also the most popular season for travelers, who come to Rome on their summer vacations. If you are among the millions making your way to Rome in the summer, this blog can help you avoid the 3 worst mistakes that can ruin your trip to Rome.
.

3 COMMON MISTAKES THAT RUIN YOUR SUMMER TRIP TO ROME

.

1 Not Reserving your Hotels, Transfers, and Tours in Advance

Rome is not only one of Italy’s top destinations for travelers, but also for cruisers who leave and arrive at the cruise port of Civitavecchia, and also dock for the day at the port on their cruise.

By waiting too close to your trip to book your Hotel, Airport Transfers, Civitavecchia Port Transfers, Day Tours and Shore Excursions, you may discover limited availability or no availability at all. Many travelers, especially cruisers, plan their trip up to 1 year in advance and book accordingly.

Summer is not the time to travel off the cuff and book what you need as you go along. Spontaneous travel is best in the off season months of November to March.

So don’t wait until last minute, book everything you need for your Rome trip in advance and you’ll have nothing to worry about.

.

RomeCabs Tours and Transfers

Day Tours, Shore Excursions and Transfer available at http://www.RomeCabs.com

.

2 Not booking your Advance Tickets to Popular Monuments and Museums

The  Colosseum and Vatican Museums have terribly  long ticket lines that can mean long wait times that last hours and possible missed opportunities to visit these amazing places.  

If you are short on time, the long ticket lines can also cause you to miss out these sites altogether – and if this was your only chance to visit them, it would be a huge disappointment during your trip.

In the case of the Colosseum, these wait times are right under the hot summer sun. Because the Colosseum also has a security checkpoint installed, your ticket line can be further impacted by added security lines.

 .

.

The Colosseum is best visited first thing in the morning when the lines are shortest.

You can avoid the other security lines at Saint Peter’s Square when entering Saint Peter’s Basilica by accessing the Basilica through the Vatican Museums.

Guaranteed access can only be possible when touring the Vatican Museums with a licensed tour guide in order to enter the Tour Guide reserved entrance that will take you quickly to the Basilica through the backway.

You can book a private Tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica through My Rome Guides.  If you book our Rome in A Day Tour, we can arrange for a licensed tour guide for your Vatican visit.

You can avoid potentially long ticket lines, the stress and frustration by booking your museums and monuments tickets in advance wherever possible and skip the ticket lines.

3 Not Bringing Suitable Attire

Summer attire for many travelers consists of tank tops, short sleeved or sleeveless tops, shorts or mini skirts, and flipflops.   However, in Rome this can pose a problem.

Many churches in Rome that are on visitors’ Must See List have a strict modesty dress code that require shoulders and knees to be covered (men, women, and older children). Visitors who do not observe the modesty dress code can be turned away.

At St Peter’s Basilica they are most definitely turned away.
..

What not to wear when visiting Rome Churches - RomeCabs

Visitors turned away from St Peter’s Basilica

 

We have seen numerous visitors wait up to 1 hour in St Peter’s Square to clear security to visit the Basilica, only to be turned away at the door because they were under dressed. For many, that was their ONLY chance to visit the Basilica as shopping for proper clothes and then  return in line again was not an option as they were on a time limited shore excursion and had to return to the ship soon after.

If you are planning to visit specific significant churches in Rome, either dress accordingly on those days, or  bring something to cover your shoulders and knees for spontaneous church visits.

Many streets and sidewalks in Rome are either cobble stoned, or are not entirely smooth (expect a few holes and uneven pavement) on these old streets.  Archaeological sites like Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, Ostia Antica and others have rugged dirt terrain with loose rocks, stones and pebbles.

It is imperative that you wear comfortable sandals and walking shoes in Rome to avoid damage to your feet. Leave the flip flops for the beach. When in Rome, wear footwear to keep your feet safe and comfortable. And break them in before your trip…blisters are painful to have when walking on your feet all day.  

We have seen far too many cracked, cut, bandaged, crippled feet and sprained ankles in Rome as a result of inadequate footwear. Don’t let your shoes ruin your vacation.

While there are MORE mistakes travelers make that ruin their summer trip to Rome and Italy that we will explore later, however these are the most common ones.

10 Important Things to Remember when booking Rome Airport and Civitavecchia Transfers

Stefano's RomeCabs Transfers

 

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs, Rome’s leading company for reliable Airport Transfers, Civitavecchia Transfers,  Day Tours, and Shore Excursions.

Arranging your airport or Civitavecchia port transfers is an important aspect of your travel plans. You’ll need to know how to get to your hotel in Rome from the airport and then back again, or how to get to and from your ship in Civitavecchia for your cruise.

Stefano’s RomeCabs makes this process easy and seamless by providing both Airport and Civitavecchia Port Transfers so all your transfer needs are taken care of.

When booking your transfers, there are some important things to keep in mind to avoid disappointments during your travels. Below we discuss the most important ones.

 

10 Important Things to Remember when booking Rome Airport and Civitavecchia Transfers

.

1  Use the Correct Arrival Date in Rome.

Some travelers departing from the American continent (Canada, US, South America) incorrectly book a transfer for the date of their own departure from home, not on the day “after” when they arrive in Rome.

Please check your plane tickets carefully for the Arrival Date, Time and Flight Number arriving at FCO Airport or Ciampino Airport
.

2  Check for Correct Flight Number for Arrivals.

 If you have multiple flight connections enroute, make sure that the Flight Number and Arrival Time you book your transfer from the airport is the correct ones arriving at your final destination in Rome.

By double checking your flight itinerary for accuracy,  you from don’t accidentally include the flight number from a previous leg in a different city or country.
.

3  Include the Complete details Drop Off Location

Be sure to provide your Hotel Name and Address with complete street number.

There are many hotels in Rome, for example, that are similar by name. Having the complete address of the hotel is very important, especially for pick ups when you want your driver to arrive at the correct location to pick you up.

If staying at a B&B or apartment, please provide the complete address with the exact building number. Many streets are long, and surrounded by convoluted one way systems. Knowing the street number not only helps the driver plan the route to your drop off location, but it’s vital for pick ups – without your building number it would not be possible to know your exact location.

.
4   For a Hotel Pick Up, use the Same Name in your Transfer Reservation as the Name registered at the Hotel

Drivers often arrive at your hotel and present themselves at the front desk as the Driver for “Name in the Transfer Reservation”.  If you book your transfer and hotel under different names, your hotel concierge will not know to inform you that your driver has arrived.

This is also important if the company needs to reach you by phone at your hotel with important information.
.

5  For Civitavecchia Transfers, be sure to include the actual Ship Name, not the Cruise Line Company.

On many days there can be multiple ships docking in Civtavecchia by the same cruise line, and they dock on different piers making impossible to guess which is your ship if you only provide your cruise line instead of the actual ship name.

For example: Crown Princess (not just Princess Cruises).
.

6  Schedule your Civitavecchia Transfers at the Right Times.

If your Transfer starts from Rome and ends at your ship in Civitavecchia, recommended pick up time from your hotel is 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

If your Transfer starts from your ship in Civitavecchia and ends at your hotel in Rome, the most common pick up time most cruisers book is 9:00 AM as that is when most cruisers are disembarked by.  

If you schedule your pick up from your ship later than 9:00 AM, you risk disembarking earlier and have to wait on the pier for your driver to arrive for your scheduled transfer.

Civitavecchia is about 1.5 hours away from Rome, if you disembark 30 – 40  minutes early, it would be possible to send the driver right earlier on the same morning  as he or she is likely still enroute to Civitavecchia.

From Civitavecchia to Fiumicino Airport, travel time is about 1 hour, so keep that in mind when booking your transfer from Civitavecchia to Fiumicino Airport.

.

Civitavecchia harbor
.

7  Schedule your Transfer from Rome to the Airport at the Right Time.

Travel time between Rome and Fiumicino Airport or Ciampino Airport is about 40 – 60 minutes pending traffic conditions.

If you need to arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to your flight departure time, schedule your pick up at least 3 hours prior to your flight departure time to allow for travel from Rome to the airport.

For transfers to Fiumicino Airport also be sure to include in your reservation or inform your driver of the Terminal Number your flight departs from. At FCO Airport airlines share multiple terminals for departure depending on various factors such as first destination city, code sharing, etc. Terminals can also change last minute. It’s important to know which terminal your flight will depart from in advance.

.

8 Include the Total  Number of your Suitcases and Carry-ons in your Reservation.

To ensure that you and your luggage will safely fit together inside the vehicle, it is important to include the total number of Large pies of luggage (checked in suitcases), and Small pieces of luggage (carry on cases).  

If you exceed the luggage capacity for the vehicle suitable or priced for the number of persons in your party, you may need a vehicle size upgrade, or a 2nd vehicle if you are a party of 7-8 traveling with more luggage than the minivan can accommodate.

.

9  Read the Information in the Website and Confirmation Email to Inform yourself about the Services you Book.

Different companies in different countries operate by certain set of laws, regulations, and culture norms.  

Read the Terms of Service prior to placing your reservation so you know in advance what is included and what is not included in your transfer, payment and cancellation policies, and other important information. Assuming all companies in all countries operate the same only leads to disappointment during your travels.

Also read the information available on the website prior to booking your transfers, and the confirmation email as well so you fully understand the type service you book and what to expect, know where to meet your drivers, emergency contact information, and the price of the service.

10  If any Information Changes in your Reservation, Please Contact Us to Update Your Reservation

If you experience changes in the number of passengers, arrival flight number or arrival time, your Hotel, or amount of luggage, please contact us so we can update your reservation with new information. Failure to provide the company with updated information may result in service not provided accurately.

 

We hope this information helps you book your perfect Airport and Civitavecchia Transfers for stress free and seamless transfers.

How the train ruined the Cruise for thousands of Civitavecchia Cruisers

.

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s Rome Cabs, Rome’s leading company for private Transfers, Day Tours, and Shore Excursions from Civitavecchia, Livorno and Naples.

Italy has an extensive train system that can take travelers to many popular destinations in Italy from Rome. One of these destinations is Civitavecchia, the cruise port about 1.5 away from Rome.  

The commuter train is the most common means to travel between Rome’s Termini Station and Civitavecchia Train Station  (the 2 endpoints for this commuter train route).

Assuming it’s an easy and cheap train ride between Rome and Civitavecchia, many cruisers opt for what would seem to be a convenient, reliable and inexpensive mode of transportation between Rome and Civitavecchia.
It is true that it’s inexpensive at 5 Euros per person.

But easy, convenient AND reliable? 

Thousands of cruisers left stranded did NOT find it reliable.

CIVI Train scehdule
.

How the train ruined the Cruise for thousands of Civitavecchia Cruisers

Recently an unfortunate TRAIN STRIKE  (trains and transportation strikes are common in Italy) left thousands of cruisers stranded either in Rome or in Civitavecchia unable to access the train they depended on for their transportation.  

Being stranded like this in a foreign country without a plan B to count on can be a frightening experience and one that can ruin your much anticipated cruise!
.

CRUISERS  LEFT STRANDED IN ROME PRE CRUISE

Cruisers needing to travel to Civitavecchia Port to catch their ship were stranded in Rome scrambling for taxis or alternative options at costs they did not even imagine or prepare for!  

For families and friends traveling together with more luggage that could fit into a taxi car (most taxis in Rome are small fuel efficient cars, not large minivans suitable for parties of 3 or more with a lot of luggage) would require more than 1 taxi.  

Taking 2 taxis from Rome to the main gate of Civitavecchia Port (Rome taxis do not have access into the cruise port), it would easily cost 240 Euros or more!!  And a ccording to many travelers, Rome city Taxi drivers are not known for honesty and fair competitive prices for the type of services they provide.  

Hotels can arrange for last minute car service for their guests….but their prices are not economical or competitive and they can go up depending on demand (and availability for last minute car service is never guaranteed)

.

CRUISERS STRANDED IN CIVITAVECCHIA POST CRUISE

Cruisers who were left stranded in Civitavecchia and needed to go to their Rome hotel post cruise or to the airport to catch a flight were left at the mercy of Civitavecchia Taxis available at the port.

Civitavecchia Taxis are generally large minivans suitable for cruisers, but they do not have a set rate. Starting rate for a transfer from Civitavecchia to Rome or Airport usually starts at 200 Euros (or more, depending on demand according to some cruisers).

On train strike days, it’s hard to find a Civitavecchia taxi available since those who disembark the earliest grab the available taxis and since it can take up to 3 hours for a taxi to return to Civitavecchia after dropping off clients in Rome or the Airport, it would be a long and unguaranteed wait. There are not that many Civitavecchia Taxis available.
.

CRUISERS STRANDED IN CIVITAVECCHIA ON SHORE EXCURSIONS

Cruisers who docked in Civitavecchia on a shore excursion and planned a DIY visit to Rome by train, found themselves stuck in port for the day.  

For a large number of cruisers, a visit to Rome was their once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the Eternal City.

Arranging same day tours with tour companies in Rome is virtually impossible due to the complexity of arranging tours by car, and the distance from Rome (where most companies like us are basted) to Civitavecchia.

As such, a common train strike in Italy caused thousands of cruisers to miss out on their much anticipated visit to Rome.

..

A SIMPLE TRAIN STRIKE RUINED THE CRUISE FOR THOUSANDS OF CRUISERS!

A simple train strike which happens quite often in Italy (and most cruisers are not aware of this or do not know how to check in advance for scheduled strike days) has ruined the cruise for thousands of Cruisers who opted to take the cheapest alternative of transportation and ended up stranded.

As one of our clients who in their early cruising days got left stranded at the port due to a train strike told us:

You get what you pay for, we tried to be penny wise but ended up Euro foolish when that 10 Euro train ride for 2 turned into 200 euro taxi misadventure”.

.

WHO WERE THE HAPPIEST CRUISERS ON TRAIN STRIKE DAY?

The happiest cruisers on the train strike day were those who booked private transfers and tours in advance and were not impacted by the train strike in the least.

Our shore excursion clients went on to enjoy their Rome shore excursions like nothing had happened.  

Our cruising clients traveled to and from Civitavecchia on our private transfers in the comfort of their private deluxe vehicle just like any other day.

And we were delighted to hear from our happy clients following their Rome tour from Civitavecchia tell us:

We’re so glad we booked our tour with you, we didn’t want to be like those people stuck at the port all day, they were miserable!”
