According to reports on the FTC’s Consumer Sentinel Network, travel-related fraud cost U.S. consumers $74.7 million in losses and accounted for 27% of all fraud reported to the agency in the first three quarters of 2021.

When planning an event or looking for a good deal for a family vacation or getaway, BBB encourages people to plan to save money, avoid scams, and travel safely.

Scammers will often target people looking for great deals online by offering tempting vacation packages at unrealistically low prices. One place to begin an online search is BBB.org for finding reputable travel agencies, agents, and websites.
