The entire point of taking a vacation is to relax, and take a breather from the busy day-to-day shuffle that most everyone is all too familiar with. When on vacation, people do not want to have to worry about a thing, and the less they have to deal with minor issues, the better. So, to avoid a potential vacation-ruining incident, Travel To Go Scam Squad team is providing travelers with tips to ensure their 2013 vacations are the most relaxing ever.

One of the most common mishaps that occur for travelers is theft. Individuals cannot help but feel carefree, while on vacation, and there are crooks out there who are more than willing to exploit that carefree attitude. While filling out paperwork at a hotel or airport, always keep an eye, or preferably a hand, on any baggage or luggage that was brought along. It is very easy for a thief to snag unwatched luggage and disappear into the crowd.

As nearly everyone is armed with a smartphone or tablet these days, criminals have evolved to exploit weaknesses that these devices have. Before connecting to wireless networks, in order to use the internet on a device, be sure that the connection is a legitimate one. Travel To Go Scam Squad wants travelers to be aware that criminals have the technology to setup fake wireless networks that when connected to, can implant malicious software onto a device. This is software that can record keystrokes and clone stored passwords and other account information. The criminal would then be able to access bank accounts and possibly drain a bank account. So always double check with an establishment before connecting to a Wi-Fi network.

Another common travel tip is to be vigilant in large groups, and when traveling at night. Wearing lots of jewelry is usually never a good idea, when traveling out in public on vacation. It alerts pickpockets to the fact that the individual might be worth checking out. In the blink of an eye, a person's watch and wallet could vanish forever. If it is necessary to travel at night, do so in well-lit areas in sight of other people, and try to only use ATMs that are inside establishments, rather than ones that are outside on streets or elsewhere.

Travel To Go Scam Squad currently serves a customer base nearing fifty-thousand loyal customers. This is quite a feat for a family-owned and operated business, but it serves as a testament for the team's dedication to five-star service. Travel To Go's vision has it as a premier leader in the world-wide travel industry, and they strive to make vacation dreams come true.
