Don’t believe everything you see online, right?
This has been a true sentiment since the birth of the Internet.
When it comes to travel, online deals are always enticing. However, booking travel via the web will always be risky, even when doing so through the big online name brands.
A new study by McAfee found that 1 in 3 travelers get scammed when booking trips.
Far too often Americans are placing their trust in a website they know nothing about.
Those going with the big-name brands can also run into unforeseen issues, and if something goes wrong while on the trip, getting help fast will be a challenge.
Instead, travelers should be booking their trips with a trusted travel advisor.
A travel advisor brings so much added value to the entire vacation process. And if something goes wrong, you’ll have someone in your corner who is able to help remedy the issues, so you don’t have to worry about it.
To the travel advisor readers out there, use this story about scams as a key selling point for your services. You are the safest way to book travel, use that as much as possible to help land new clients.
Travelers booking online are far more susceptible to being scammed. Make the travel plans through a trusted travel advisor and there’s no need to worry.
