We understand that you are in your vacation and that you are adopting the adventurers’ spirit, and the last thing you want to do is calculations.
But in order to avoid being scammed with extra fees, you need to scrutinize the total cost of your staying and look very carefully at your bill before you pay. Some travel booking agents will charge you for their services including reservations and booking fees.
So, again, it is all a matter of how much time you spent reading the policy. It is okay to sacrifice some of your time on social networks to have better travel experiences.
Lost Reservations or Requests
Imagine surviving long flights, getting through long lines with other flyers at the airport, and getting transportation to your hotel to find out that they are not even aware that you made a reservation or that your requests weren’t conveyed.
Terrible isn’t it? It happens sometimes that booking websites don’t take care of your reservation the way they should and relay your info to the hotel, which can end up ruining your vacation before it begins.
In order to avoid such problems, book directly through the hotel site, or make sure to call them before traveling to confirm your reservation and special requests.
Unsolicited Phone Calls
Always be extra careful when you receive an unsolicited phone call. The caller may not be necessarily a fraud, it could be a legitimate business, but you should take your time to investigate their legitimacy.
With the videos that are spreading through smartphones that include insights on the scammers’ world. These phone scammers are actually improving year after year and stepping up their game.
This is where we should request you to be smarter than them and don’t fall for their plays. They may hire some callers who have one small detail about your personal information and use it to convince you they are legit.
