New Travel Scams to watch out for.

Don't get caught out by travel scammers!

Criminals and opportunists are using our love of travel to part people from their hard-earned cash. We’ve researched some of the most popular travel scams to make sure you don’t get caught out.

British Airways Travel Scam

Fraudsters posing as British Airways offer gift vouchers for free flights in return for your personal information. The emails, now doing the rounds, appear to come from British Airways. They claim to offer the chance to win a £1,000 voucher with the introduction: 

"We are happy to announce a number of new regional routes. To celebrate, we are offering our selected customers a great chance to receive a £1000 British Airways Voucher!”

The reader is then asked to submit their dream destination which takes them to a website which could be used to steal their information. 

To avoid being scammed, ensure the domain name of the site is the same as the company name. If you notice anything unusual about the domain, it’s best to exercise caution. 

Copycat Websites

A host of copycat websites have sprung up offering to help you through the process of applying for  travel related government services such as passports. They charge to provide information that is either free or available at a substantially lower cost. 

They also offer help when applying for the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for a fee, often up to £25. This card is free to apply for and entitles you to state-provided healthcare in other European countries for free or at a reduced cost. Always go to the .gov site. 

Clone Travel Accommodation Sites

Fraudsters commonly hack into common hotel accommodation sites and clone, or redirect them to a fake site. Unsuspecting travellers could end up paying for accommodation that doesn’t exist. 

Before you book, check online to ensure the travel provider has a good online reputation. Trustpilot is a great place to hear from other users. Blurred logos or other abnormalities should raise alarm bells. Again, keep an eye on the domain to ensure you haven’t been redirected to another site.

*Please Note*

The reason that they are asking for this information is try and steal your ID. To open a bank account using your information, and try and get loans in your name too. Therefore, when you receive emails from total strangers asking for your private details, just count it as a scam and either report it to your ISP or just mark as spam. With certain email providers you can totally block any future messages from the sender. (Do not trust anyone, unless you 100% know them. But even then never give out your private information to anyone via email.

There are always signs too, the list is below.

  1. When they state "Dear Friend"

  2. Offering millions of dollars for nothing

  3. Asking for personal information
