The Guardian is reporting on the ongoing "fraud epidemic" where fraudulent holiday bookings are up 13%. With ever-increasing costs to visit our favourite Disney Parks, it's only natural to shop around for the best deals possible. However, be careful not to fall into the trap of scams that can look incredibly legitimate. Many of the scams start with fake ads on search engines or social media.
With Disney Holidays it's quite difficult to fall for scams, as long as you:
Where scams can creep up on you, is when you're booking off-site and searching around online (as opposed to a Flight+Villa package through Virgin Holidays for example). If staying off-site - either in a nearby hotel or Villa - book it directly through reputable sites like Hotels.com if your airline isn't providing the package you want.
When booking flights, use airlines you know through their own websites. It might sound obvious, but (for example), if you're looking to book a TUI flight, book it direct through TUI. You can also use reputable price comparison sites like Kayak or Skyscanner which find the best deals, but they do ultimately link you to the actual airline website where you book with them directly. Avoid dodgy websites like "cheaporlandoflights4u.co.uk".
If you plan on using a third-party travel agent, make sure they're reputable and genuinely recommended. Check their reviews and ask around before handing over money. It is super easy to create a genuine looking travel agent website. You know the saying, if the deal is too good to be true...
