ATLANTA — For many seniors, the travel doors are finally opening after extended COVID-19 isolation. But before you book, be careful.
Watch for phoney lookalike websites that closely resemble the real ones from airlines, travel companies and hotels.
Keep a close eye on emails offering free flights, discount travel packages, cheap vacation rentals or bogus travel insurance policies that guarantee COVID-19 coverage.
And never give out financial information unless you fully trust and know the source.
