Simplicity Travel Dallas is always on the lookout for the improvement of the satisfaction of their members, and has recently been made aware of new travel scams. Since the holiday season is just around the corner, this top vacation club is providing tips on how to avoid the most common scams that can easily ruin a person’s vacation. Traveling is a rare opportunity for many people, and Simplicity Travel Dallas wants to make this the best season to travel yet. Thankfully they are disclosing the top travel scams to watch out for when travelling this season.
Simplicity Travel warns travelers against using free Wi-Fi at any location. It may seem like a good idea to use a business’s Wi-Fi, but recently a lot of scam artists are using this medium to steal personal information. An unsuspecting traveler signs onto the wireless, just to check their email or worse their banking information and they are being monitored the whole time. These thieves then have all of the traveler’s account numbers and passwords. Simplicity Travel Dallas advises that travelers only use trusted Wi-Fi locations so that they can protect all of their personal information.
Simplicity Travel has also discovered that people are still falling into the clutches of cab scams. Upon arriving in a new location, a cab will be sitting out front of airports, and train stations, waiting to take travelers to their hotels. However, instead of taking people there directly, these drivers run the meters up. In some scarier cases, these cab drivers insist that the hotel these passengers want to go to is closed. This is when the cab driver takes these passengers to a new hotel, that he gets commission from, and drops them off. Typically, these new hotels are of very poor quality and guests are miserable for a few nights until they learn that their hotel is open and they could have gone there in the first place. Simplicity Travel recommends searching about cab drivers in an area that travelers are headed to make sure that they get in the right cabs, instead of with scam drivers.
Simplicity Travel Dallas also recommends using ATMs inside of banks to do any transactions. In some countries con artists place scanners on the readers of ATM machines. Through these scanners, thieves receive all of a person’s intimate details associated with their accounts. This makes it that much easier to steal all of this person’s money out of their account later. ATMs inside of a building are much safer than those on the outside, and Simplicity Travel Dallas recommends using these so travelers can protect themselves.
Simplicity Travel Dallas remains one of the top vacation clubs in the industry, because of their determination to provide the best quality vacations for members. This is why knowing about travel scams is so important. Thankfully through the dedication of Simplicity Travel Dallas, many vacationers will have successful trips during this holiday season.
