This fall, Grand Solmar Timeshare is taking the time to explain some of the most common travel scams and how to avoid them around the world.

Grand Solmar Timeshare makes it a very high priority to educate its members about some of the dangers of traveling across the world. While Cabo San Lucas is a wonderful city that attracts thousands of tourists every year, there are other places across the globe where travelers will be susceptible to scams if they are not properly informed about the warning signs that something is about to happen.

1. Scams having to do with travelers’ bags.
One of the biggest targets of many scams that are seen today have to do with travelers’ possessions and personal belongings, especially those that are targeted towards a vacationer’s bags. Oftentimes, distraction tactics are used in order to gain a vacationer’s attention while someone swipes his or her backpack, purse or other personal items. Money, keys or a wallet are commonly used in this scam.

Another scam having to do with a traveler’s bags is the bag slash scam, where someone will cut the outside of a person’s bag and stick their hand in, hoping to grab some valuable items. This scam usually happens in a crowded area where the person is likely to be distracted shares the experts at Grand Solmar Timeshare.

2. Overhead baggage scam.
When taking a bus overnight, it can be a common occurrence for a scammer to rummage through other passenger’s belongings while they are sleeping. Other times, scammers will even attempt to rifle through a person’s pockets while they are sleeping. The best way to avoid this scam is to check all luggage into the area underneath the bus, or keep one’s belongings in their lap at all times. The Grand Solmar Scam Reduction Team also recommends that travelers avoid bringing valuable items on a long bus ride.

3. Buying goods off of the street.
Travelers should always be wary whenever they attempt to buy goods off of the street, especially if they are at extremely discounted prices on things like cameras and other electronics. Oftentimes, these items are fake or even counterfeit and stolen. Other times, unsuspecting travelers will buy the items and later find out that they bought a box of rocks.

By informing travelers about some of the scams that they could potentially run into this fall, the Grand Solmar Timeshare Scam reduction squad hopes that each vacation is a safe and scam-free one.
