To help avoid being a victim of a travel scam, the American Society of Travel Agents provides the following suggestions when evaluating travel offers:

Be extremely skeptical about postcard and phone solicitations which say you've been selected to receive a fabulous vacation;

You should receive complete details in writing about any trip prior to payment. These details should include the total price; cancellation and change penalties, if any; and specific information about all components of the package;

If you insist on calling a 900 number in response to a travel solicitation, understand the charges and know the risks;

Walk away from high pressure sales presentations which don't allow you time to evaluate the offer, or which require that you disclose your income;

Be suspicious of companies which require that you wait at least 60 days to take your trip.
