World Travel Watch, written by Larry Habegger of the San Francisco Chronicle, has brought it to my attention that the good folk behind the cab company Radiotaxi 3570 in Rome are doing all they can to help newbies to the city.
Apparently, the region's biggest taxi firm is bringing in a new way to pay for cars ordered, which allows people to part with cash in advance, either by computer or text message. Doesn't that sound quick and convenient? The thinking behind it is that it will go some way in preventing tourists from being ripped off by unscrupulous members of the Italian public.
What's more, if you're a bit afraid about trying out some phrases in a foreign tongue, then there's not much need to worry as Radiotaxi 3570 is also offering a selection of drivers, who can speak different languages. Take your pick from English, German, Spanish or French! Travelling has never been this easy!
And here's the 411 on Radiotaxi 3570, just in case you're still somewhat dubious: It has around 3,500 cars operating in Rome, which makes it the biggest company in Europe apparently! It has 115 telephone lines as well, so you're almost guaranteed to get through to someone whenever you want.
