Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Complaints prevention team knows that one of the most common and fastest methods of travel when vacationing is to hail a taxi cab. This is an easy and efficient way to at least get someone to get you from point A to point B without having to intermingle in any crowds that could be found on a bus or a subway. Taxis are good for getting you at a certain spot and dropping you off right at the door. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club complaints prevention team warns that it is what happens in between that can be misleading and drive you right into a scam.

One of the most effective things that you can to do to protect yourself and your funds while traveling and to act as a scam prevention team with fellow travelers is to know where it is you are going and to know where you are heading. Since taxi cab drivers are often employed by themselves only, they are paid by the running of their meters that are attached to their vehicle’s speedometer or clock. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Complaints prevention team recommends you make sure that the taxi driver has started his meter over when you first enter the cab. If you know where you are going or have a map of the city that you are visiting, you can see that he or she is taking you a long costly route instead.
