Thieves, scam artists, trick bookings, grifters... save for the nickel-and-diming of the airline industry, it's undeniably the ugly side of travel. Encounter a seasoned traveler and chances are they can relate the time that their camera, wallet, or passport was swiped, or when that tuk-tuk driver said one thing, and then did something else.
In an effort to better arm ourselves (and our audience), we've surveyed our deep rolodex of travelers to cull together a list of the most common travel scams, as well as a detailed guide that outlines the ways to avoid becoming a target. Arm yourself with this information, and you increase the chances of a trouble-free trip.
Better still, please share with us your stories of scams, touts, and anything of the sort. Just drop them the comments section of this blog entry. We'll be reading, and culling the best for inclusion in upcoming iterations of the articles.
