Travel scams in 2019?
We’ve put together a handy guide to help you decide what you should look out for.
We’ll start with a rundown of the top travel scams.
This is not a guide to all travel scams, but rather a list of scams that have been around for a while, or have been mentioned on previous editions of The Travel Guide.
This guide is meant to help travellers navigate through the myriad scams that exist, but is not intended to be comprehensive.
There’s no shortage of travel scams out there.
If you’re a victim of a scam, or are concerned about your rights in the future, you can always contact the police or seek legal advice.
But don’t let that dissuade you from seeking help if you’re unsure whether your rights are being breached.

You might be tempted to use the list to help avoid some of the more common scams.
That’s a bad idea.
The scam list is meant as a guide, and should not be relied upon as a substitute for legal advice or advice from a travel agent.
However, if you feel that you’ve been scammed by a travel agency, you might want to take a look at the scammers list and check for any similarities in scams.
If so, take a close look at scams on the travel scam blacklist.
You can find a complete list of travel agents on the Scam Report page.
We recommend that you read our guide to scammers to see if your identity has been used against you.
If that happens, contact the travel agency you have been scammers contact.
