Holiday makers are being warned about fraudsters who place false adverts on accommodation websites.
In 2017 over 4700 travellers have been defrauded which is a 25% rise on the year before and cost on average £1500.00 per person.
The fraudsters place adverts on legitimate websites offering cheap tickets or accommodation and once you have paid they disappear.
This problem highlights the reason we at Avocet Travel Management are members of ABTA. Having this accreditation means your money is safe so before going ahead and booking that real bargain check out the credentials of the company and be sure you are dealing with a legitimate company before parting with any money. If it looks too good to be true – it probably is!
