"Business Trips"

 

Never before in the history of the world have businessmen traveled

so much as they do today. It is not surprising because we are

living in a world of growing international trade and expanding

economic and technical cooperation. Fascinating though it is for

tourist travelling, however, has become the most tiring of all

the occupations for many businessmen and experts. Choosing a

comfortable hotel to stay at is, therefore, a matter of some

importance. There are plently of good hotels, motels, and guest

houses, in the world, conviently located for major business

centers. Many developing countries, such as India, Egypt,

Nigeria, Lybia, etc have excellent hotels. Their numerous

facilities include both: large and small cocktail barber's shops

and conference halls, equipped with simultaneous, multilingual

translation systems. There are parking areas which can accomodate

a lot of cars. It might be useful for travelling businessmen and

tourists to know that tailor shops, shoe repair shops and

laundry, dry cleaning services are available for guests. People

in the office help guests to book train or steamer tickets and

rent a car. They are also ready to give all necessary information.

Nowadays people who go on business mostly travel by air as it is

the fastest means of travelling. Passengers are requested to

arrive at the airport 2 hours before departure time on

international flights and an hour on domestic flights as there

must be enough time to complete the necessary airport

formalities. Passengers must register their tickets, weigh in and

register the luggage. Most airlines have at least 2 classes of

travel: first class and economy class which is cheaper. Each

passenger of more than 2 years of age has a free luggage

allowance. Generally this limit is 20kg for economic class

passenger and 30kg for first class passenger. Excess luggage must

be paid for except for some articles that can be carried free of

charge. Each passenger is given a boarding pass to be shown at

geparture gate and again to the stewardess when boarding the

plane. Watch the electric sign flashes when you are on board,

when the "Fasten Seat Belts" sign goes on do it promptly and also

obey the "No Smoking" signal. Do not forget your personal effects

when leaving the plane.
