Senior Source: Watch for Travel Scams

With Seniors heading out for summer holidays and group trips, the caution light is on to watch for travel scams and added charges.

ATLANTA — Summertime means lots of senior travel, but it also signals travel scams.

Don't buy any travel deals from Robocallers.

Get cancellation and refund policies in writing.

Research the credentials of travel insurance companies and see if your credit card company may cover you.

Check out resort fees before you book.  They could cost more than your room.

And beware of free gifts and membership fees from travel clubs.
