La Jolla Mazatlán Complaints Department was established so that members could have an inside look at some of the worst scams in the industry, and none of these scams are as successful as airport scams. This year has already presented new scams in a place that most travelers feel safe, the airport.
La Jolla Mazatlan Complaints Department recognizes that there are many different types of scams that travelers fall victim to annually, and this year airport scams are on the rise. One of the first scams that travelers should be aware of is that of Concourse Scams. Travelers go to concourse desks to purchase tickets and the desk clerks add in extra fees, or they make a travelers bag overweight. Travelers then pay the added fees, only to find that their bag is the correct weight, and the airport desk clerk has pocketed that money. The best way to avoid any of these unnecessary fees is to involve another person, just to confirm the amount and legitimize the fee.
La Jolla Mazatlan Complaints Department also warns against fake taxi rides from the airport. There are many cab drivers that like to take advantage of traveler, by driving them to the wrong location, running up the meter, or even robbing them. To avoid getting in cabs with con artists, travelers should always use the specified loading area for cabs that is specifically approved by the airport. IN some countries, it is required that travelers purchase coupons, and wait for appropriate taxis to pull up. This may take more time, but the overall safety of the traveler is worth the wait.
Another scam is that of pickpockets, con artists and thieves will bump into unsuspecting traveler and steal important things out of their pockets. When travelers are in airports they carry passports, credit cards, and other valuable information that can be easily sold. This is why travelers should keep a close eye on all of their belongings, and make sure to hide their important documents away in safe places Travelers can also carry a decoy wallet, so that if pickpockets do bump into them, all of their information is protected.
La Jolla Mazatlan Complaints Department recommends these tips so that travelers can keep safe while they are on vacation this year. Through the following recommendations it is possible for vacationers to have successful trips in 2013.
