Is it ever ok to lie to your partner?

My job requires me to work away often with female colleagues.
My girlfriend gets quite jealous and we argue if she knows I am away with girls. I have in the past confided in detail with one female colleague about problems in my relationship and I think this is where the aggravation comes from. There has never been anything romantic.
To avoid an argument while I'm on the road I've started lying to my girlfriend about who is on these trips. So as far as she knows I only go away with men.
So my question.
Is it okay to lie to your partner if it saves stress and worry for both parties?
Examples of similar situations would be useful...
