Krystal International Vacation Club is a leading provider of luxury vacations, and knowing that many young travelers are planning their Spring Break vacations, it is distributing information regarding scam prevention to better inform travelers of the questionable activity they should be aware of during their travels.

Travelers are often popular targets for scam artists, and young travelers are well known for relaxing with the help of a few alcoholic drinks. The combination of the scammers’ precision and the travelers’ lack of awareness makes Spring Break a time to pay particular attention to surroundings, as plenty of scam artists are sure to be lurking about. This is a perfect time to remember the need to never distribute personal information over the telephone, handle all transactions in person and avoid taking expensive jewelry or technology on vacation as it is much easier to cancel a credit card than it is to replace a stolen expensive watch or a lost laptop.

One of the key aspects of the scam prevention tips is that travelers should never leave personal belongings unattended. Travelers should never take anything from their resort room that they do not want to carry in their hands for the entire day. Backpacks may seem like a good idea, but in a crowded environment, it is very easy for an adept pickpocket to slip away with a wallet or other belongings.

Krystal International Vacation Club suggests that travelers be wary of deals that seem too good to be true. There is a popular scam among scam artists that has become known as the “pizza scam,” in which a coupon for a discounted pizza delivery is slipped under the door into the room. The offer and the restaurant presented are fakes, and the scam artist is waiting for someone to call in and order the pizza and present their credit card information during the order.

By following these safety tips, Krystal International Vacation Club knows that Spring Break travelers will have an unforgettable Spring Break 2015 vacation experience.
