SAN DIEGO, Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Travel To Go always strives to ensure that its members are well informed and well educated whenever they travel to a new destination. This luxury vacation provider offers tips to protect travelers whenever they go on vacation. This information is not meant to alarm vacationers, but to aid them in staying safe and secure when they are away from home.
There are many scams and schemes that people will run in order to take advantage of travelers. Some of the most common schemes include seemingly innocent individuals being in distress. These people claim to need money for gas, ask for a ride to the nearest gas station, or find "lost" items of value such as rings and wallets. Travel To Go recommends that travelers never give money, rides or allow the use of their cell phone to strangers.
Vacationers tend to be easy targets for many reasons; they are often distracted with sightseeing, shopping, being unfamiliar with the area and not understanding the language. If the price for a brand name item in a store or market seems too good to be true, it probably is. Travelers also need to be aware of pickpockets. The best way to keep valuable items secure is to keep them in hand or leave them at home. Travel To Go advises that vacationers never leave their phones, wallets, or other valuable items in their back pockets, as it is easy for someone to take these items and the victim not to feel anything. The use of a fanny pack or pockets that zip and have Velcro shut – such as those in cargo shorts – are recommended.
Travel To Go wants its members to have a safe and enjoyable vacation and provides these tips in order to keep travelers aware and vigilant wherever their travels may take them.
