Some Tips to Avoid Tourist Scams

All around the globe tourists and visitors like you and I are an easy target for people with bad intentions. Most of the cases we are not very familiar with the environment and we are at risk of falling for one of these tricks. Some of the people take this as advantage and they may try to play on us. While some of these tricks are easily avoided. But there are some tricks that are very difficult to detect. In some cases we are robbed without even realizing it, they are people very experts in robbing. People in each destination of the world are having their own methods of trickery, but there are some situations we can clearly avoid. You can avoid tourist scams by following some tips and advice.

Be wary of anyone who approaches you for whatever the reason, you can experience this particularly around popular tourist sites. You cannot understand any person in a look, because the most of the scammers are well-dressed and they look like businesspeople, generally with something official-looking in their hand. Some looks like tourists and visitors or walkers, with daypacks, cameras, and even guidebooks. Don’t be fooled by their looks, impressive uniforms and hard-luck stories. Avoid tourist scams and stay alert always.

Before planning a tour to tourist sites research about your destination.  If you go through web you can get nearly all the information which you needed by using some simple and easy keywords like name of the particular city you would like to visit, travel safety advice, ways to avoid tourist scams and you can search for any information. Before departure you must clarify everything. After arriving your destination, ask additional questions. For example, where is the hotel in relation to what you want to do, cost of taxi from the hotel to airport, security, and whether it is safe to walk in the evening. Always agree on a price for taxis if there is no meter in the particular taxi and tour guides in advance. Also watch out for porters who take you to unofficial taxis that overcharge you. Don’t use unlicensed cabs in any city.
