Har du någonsin kommit på ett hotell för att upptäcka att “havsutsikt” rummet du föll head over heels för online egentligen inte existerar? Eller undersöka en restaurang bill bara för att finna den innehåller poster som du aldrig beställt?

Det är lätt att bli paranoid när du reser och stäng alla du möter i en misstänkt. Men lite vetskap kan hålla dig steget före scammers. Här är en genomgång av vanliga fallgropar längs med tips på hur du kan undvika dem.

Extra poster på räkningen

efter kvardröjande över en måltid, det är lätt att glömma bort att kontrollera att din faktura överensstämmer med vad du har beställt – något sneda anläggningar räknar på. Ett annat knep är upping menyalternativ” priser på notan: se till att de enskilda poster matchar de priser som anges på menyn väljer du från (inte en trerättersmiddag kan kosta version de kan du senare).  Kontrollera också extra poster har inte lagts till (att mineralvatten på flaska på bordet som du inte gjort eller öppna, till exempel).

Bo inte på en fiktiv lägenhet

kort vistelse apartments är ett fantastiskt sätt att spara pengar och leva som en lokal. Men om du bokar via en seriös byrå, din lägenhet kanske egentligen inte finns (eller upphämtning på flygplatsen du utlovade).

Bedragare ofta sammanställa falska annonser lägenhet vid för-bra-att-vara-sant priser från foton och beskrivningar på legitima webbplatser. Sök online för att se om lägenheten är registrerade med en godkänd lägenhet att hyra företag och, om så är fallet, kontakta dem för att kontrollera tillgängligheten. Du kan också verifiera lägenheter” giltighet genom att begära en kopia av ett hjälpmedel bill i ägarens namn (och se till att den inte har ändrats).

Framför allt under inga omständigheter skicka betalning till en untraceable konto via en överföring av pengar.

  1. I’ve been following Gary Arndt’s odyssey since 2007, when he started traveling more or less non-stop. “I’ve been to over 140 countries and territories around the world and all 7 continents,” he says. “I also have made a point of visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites whenever I can.” To date, he’s visited and photographed 262 World Heritage sites around the globe for his site, Everything-Everywhere.com. Arndt was also named the 2014 Travel Photographer of the Year by the Society of American Travel Writers.

  2. Whether an actual campsite or more a secret spot perfect for a wild night under the stars, where’s the best place to camp on the sand by the sea?
    Waking up from a slumber on sand to the sound of the waves lapping the shore is possibly one of the most beautiful ways to great a new day. Have you camped on a beach anywhere in the world that you’d recommend as one of the best places to experience a night under the stars?

  3. Weekend skiing at its best means maximum time on snow and minimum time away from work. Achieving this involves detailed planning, professional help from a specialist tour operator – or both.

    The argument is that two full days – or better, three – on the mountain can be just as rewarding as a week. Most suitable resorts are within a 90-minute drive from a major airport.

    Specialist companies will meet you off your evening flight. They will have already arranged lift pass, equipment rental, and guide in advance so that no time is wasted on the first morning.

  4. The US embassy in Berlin has issued a travel warning for Americans visiting Hamburg after a police crackdown on leftist protesters in the German port.

    Americans are advised in the warning to avoid demonstrations or public gatherings in the areas affected, which include the main nightlife district.

    They are also urged to carry ID because of police stop and search powers.

    After some of the worst rioting seen in Germany in years, police declared parts of Hamburg “danger zones” on Saturday.

    The unrest has centred on the eviction of an anarchist community centre, the Rote Flora, which was set up by squatters in a former theatre nearly 25 years ago.

  5. Travellers being urged to avoid rally sites, stock up on cash, food and water.

    Many countries have advised their nationals to stay away from demonstration sites on Monday and ensure that they have enough cash on them, a fully-charged communication device as well as enough food and water to last a while. They have also been advised not to wear red or yellow.

    “Participating or showing support in any form to any of the parties is strongly discouraged,” the Philippines Embassy in Bangkok said on its website.

    “For information, the red and yellow colours are closely identified with some of the parties involved,” it said referring to the colours associated with political conflict over recent years.

  6. ASPEN, Colo. — This winter I put my relationship to the ultimate test: a romantic ski vacation.

    Many couples ski together, but my fiancee Sheri Askinazi is just learning while I’ve been skiing for more than two decades. We’d done group ski trips, but never skied alone.

    To make this trip work, we needed some advance planning and clear expectations. I wanted to ski with Sheri but also desired time to speed down the harder trails.

    We chose four days at Aspen/Snowmass in Colorado because it offered a little bit for each of us.

    “I am a little nervous about the trip. It’s a lot of time skiing,” Sheri confessed to me a month before we left. When I mentioned that I had found ski buddies for a day, she asked: “A whole day?”

    The conversation continued at dinner a few nights later. One of our friends flat-out said: “He has to ski with you. That’s it.”

    We chatted through our desires and made a plan.
