Unfold Close  ONLINE TRAVEL VACATION SCAM

Have you ever been tempted by an online ad for a vacation that seems outrageously cheap? This is possibly an online travel scam. You might find that the hotel accommodation and air travel you paid for were not booked after all.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

  • Goods or services being sold at incredibly low prices are often done in bad faith; if not a scam per se, there are often unclear terms and conditions attached that you should be wary of
  • If a vendor does not clearly identify themselves with an address or a phone number, they might not be legitimate

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

  • Check with official sources such as STB at www.stb.gov.sg if the vendor is an accredited travel agent
  • Check with NATAS at www.natas.org.sg for what to look out for when considering a trip
  • Make sure to read all the terms and conditions; avoid all such offers that require hidden fees or taxes
