1. Getting scammed
No one wants to be the victim of a scam. It can make you feel scared and unsafe, and the whole trip will easily turn into a disaster. To make sure that you avoid a situation like this, you’d better do your research before going on vacation.
A common fraud that happens when people are away is the taxi scam. Drivers can tell when people are local versus when they’re tourists. This means that they will more likely charge you extra just because you don’t know the places, so they will think that you have no idea how much money a ride should cost.
This is why we believe it’s better to know a few things about the zone you’re going to before you actually pack your bags and go. Another thing to consider is to never give your credit card information to any websites you don’t trust, and make sure that you always trust your gut. And if something bad happens, let the police know about it.
