    • Travel To Go Offers Tips to Avoid Travel Scams For this 2014 season, Travel To Go wants travelers to be aware of certain scams while on vacation
    • About Travel To Go   Travel To Go began in 1990 and is now celebrating its 24th anniversary in the travel industry.   Travel To Go prides itself on being a leader in arranging luxurious vacation accommodations all around the world.   The company also provides stellar customer care to its growing base of 100,000 members.
    • Airport Travel Scam   Airports are known for being hectic and overwhelming, with a lot of different things going on at once.   Scammers take advantage of this scenario and work in pairs to steal valuables from travelers.   One con artist will spill a drink or food all over a traveler and begin to apologize and strike up a conversation to distract you.   The other scammer will move in and steal whatever valuables they can easily take from you.
    • Avoiding the Airport Travel Scam   To avoid having your valuable belongings stolen off you in an airport, be aware of your surroundings.   If someone does come up to you and spills something, keep walking and wait until you are in a remote area to clean up.   By not staying still, the scammers will not be able to fully take advantage of you and steal your items.
    • Fake Menu Scam   Scammers will try almost anything to get credit card information from tourists, including the fake menu scheme.   They will slip fake delivery menus under hotel room doors.   Once hotel guests call that number for delivery, the scammer asks for the credit card information over the phone.   They then steal this information and leave the hotel guest without food or money.
    • Avoiding Fake Menu Scheme •  To make sure this doesn’t happen to you, don’t provide any credit card information over the phone. •  When calling a delivery place, tell them you will pay in cash or give the credit card info once the food has been provided. •  To make sure that something is a legitimate business, ask the front desk at the hotel for its recommendations.
    • Travel To Go Recommendations   In order to make sure that you do not get taken advantage of while on vacation, Travel To Go has several general recommendations.   Be constantly aware of your surroundings and do not let scammers distract you.   When in doubt of whether something is fake or not, use your gut instinct and always ask the hotel for advice.
