October 2021 390
With interest in adventure sports on the rise, more and more enthusiasts are booking breaks to adventure locations across the world. This has also piqued the interest of scammers who have put up 'unmissable' offers on booking sites that can lure unwary candidates.
 
Catherine Hiley, broadband expert at digital service platform Uswitch.com, said: “Booking adventure sports has become increasingly popular over the last year as people have grown desperate for some post-lockdown excitement.
 
“But there are a few things to remember when you are booking that all-important trip away. To make sure that you stay safe online when travelling to an adventure weekend in Europe or the UK, be mindful of scams that might seem too good to be true. 
 
“When you’re booking online or through an app for some exciting outdoor or adventure sports, it can be easy to get swept up in ‘unmissable’ offers or potentially accept the terms and conditions of a trip without actually reading them. This can land you in trouble. 
 
“Always choose a secure method of payment such as your debit or credit card, which has encryption and fraud monitoring and check to see how many negative reviews a site has before securing your trip. 
 
“So if you’re an adventure sports fan, our index will help you pick the right destination for your desired sport while also offering some useful tips on how to book your trip safely.”-TradeArabia News Service
