El Cid Vacations Club Scam Department wants to make sure that their members are knowledgeable of all of the most current scams, which is why this department is filling travelers in with all the details on the most rampant Airport Scams in 2013.
El Cid Vacations Club Scam Department first reminds travelers that pickpockets are plentiful in airports, so it is important to keep a close eye on all belongings. There is a lot of traffic in the airport, which is why it is necessary to keep a close eye on bags, as well as wallets. There are travelers that are now using fake wallets, so that pickpockets will steal those instead of the real thing. As long as travelers keep a close eye on all of their belongings, pick pockets have a diminished chance of being successful.
The next scam that is really popular is going to be a little harder to prepare for, as it has to deal with hidden fees at the kiosks. Travelers go in to purchase their tickets and there are additional baggage fees, or the attendants say that the bags are over weight. This seems like a legitimate charge because it is coming from an airport employee, but generally these attendants pocket the extra cash. So, when faced with extra fees in the airport, El Cid Vacations Club recommends that travelers get a third party involved so that all the extra fees can be validated.
El Cid Vacations Club Scam Department also warns against getting propositioned for bribes while entering another country. There are immigration personnel, largely in third world countries that will ask for bribes to facilitate a traveler’s entry into the country. These people will try to get bribes from people that are entering the country, so to avoid this situation ask to speak to another personnel member. In this case it is recommended to hand over a small amount of money, otherwise a traveler could be arrested or detained. This is the easiest way to get through customs in third world countries.
El Cid Vacations Club Scam Department recognizes these scams as some of the most prominent scams in the industry, so as long as travelers know what to expect they can enhance their overall vacation experience.
