Pedata RV Center urges recreational vehicle travelers to be cautious of scams during travel this holiday season. Recreational vehicle travel is convenient for holiday trips as accommodations are included in the mode of transportation. And while most travelers are well aware of the need for checklists and careful preparation for on the road emergencies, etc. there are still those situations that no one wants to fall victim to, but most people take no precautions against thefts, assaults and cons.
Gerard Pedata of Pedata RV Center said, “Holiday travel is meant to be joyful and fun and happy. Falling victim to theft or assault is none of these things. Yet a large number of recreational vehicle travelers do not prepare for these situations at all.”
Pedata RV Center urges recreational vehicle travelers to:
1. Pay attention: know where your stuff is and what’s going on around you.
2. Be organized: pack carefully. Don’t carry large amounts of cash or high ticket items (gifts, etc.) in your purse or carry-all bag.
3. Use your common sense: when purchasing “travel” arrangements or tours from travel agents or companies…check out the company prior to confirming payment arrangements. This is an all too familiar fraud that many fall victim to during the winter season. Don’t be pressured into a purchase. Always pay using a credit card.
Holiday travel is fraught with distractions. There is often a lot of rushing and grabbing and hauling of bags and gifts. This makes it vital that recreational vehicle owners traveling during the holidays are more vigilant than usual when it comes to keeping track of their items, planning their trips, and being aware of their overall environment.
