Be Fraud Smart
Whether you’re booking that long-awaited holiday or just a short break, do thorough research into flights, package holidays or accommodation, to make sure they’re legitimate.
Criminals may take advantage of customers booking flights and staycations by advertising “too good to be true” offers or prices.
Stay scam savvy by reading online reviews from reputable sources before making any bookings. You can also confirm if an accommodation really exists by verifying the address through web searches and online maps.
Where possible, use a credit card when booking holidays over £100 and up to £30,000 as you receive protection under Section 75.
