One of the very significant items in business is travelling. Businessmen, who want to make personal contacts with their present or future partners, must travel a lot. Many trade fairs are held in different countries all over the world and a great deal of business executives visit them in order to study the market possibilities for increasing their firm’s sales in other countries.

There are some things that should be done before a businessman goes on a business trip: he should prepare all the travel documents; book the tickets and the hotel accommodation.

When reserving accommodation, the hotel will be asked to confirm the booking and the price of the room. If you are going to Britain it is important to know if the price of the room includes VAT, service charges and meals. The hotel will usually include this information in its reply. VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax on value which is added to raw material when they become finished products. It is charged on products and services bought and used in England.
