Enjoy Travel With Blockchain
13 Sep 2019
Having been blessed as one of the lucky ones to have traveled around the world, I have come to know there is no better feeling than experiencing the beauty of another culture that is different from your own. I say I have been blessed because traveling in this day and age is most definitely a luxury, one that many hope to have the chance to be a part of but sadly may not achieve in their lifetime, and while others have sacrificed traveling the world for other desires, it still begs the question as more and more people choose to travel, why the services aren’t adapting with the times to make the experience safer and more stress free.
Seasoned travelers know the risks of planning a trip on their own, hearing the stories of the many things that can go wrong, some knowing first hand. One risk, in particular, seems to be an ongoing issue, whether they be tours, hotels or flights some of them may be fraudulent. There are a lot of victims out there that have fallen prey to false bookings, travelers booking through a tour agency only to show up and find that it did not exist. This was a predicament I have also encountered in my early years, booking a flight through what I thought was a legitimate site only to find the ticket purchased did not exist, my only option to spend more money on yet another ticket.
In an article hitting back against fake travel websites, it goes on to list the many ways scams can ruin your perfect holiday.
“Every year around this time, more and more bargain-hungry people get ripped off in vacation and travel scams. Fake websites pop up almost daily on search engines when unwary travelers type in popular destinations in their hunt for a summer getaway. Carelessness can lead to the misery of being duped into paying hundreds or thousands of dollars to bogus travel companies, agents, and property owners.”

Scams targeting travelers are not the only problem that needs to change with the times and as they become more advanced so too should we.
