Summer travel tips

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The Better Business Bureau has a few reminders for consumers who want to avoid headaches and frustration while vacationing this summer.

Consider buying travel insurance for long distance trips. It can provide protection in event of an accident, illness, interrupted trip and more.

Protect your personal information. Don't give out information to anyone offering vacation deals over the phone.

When booking travel online, make sure you are visiting a reliable and well known website. And check to see that they have a privacy statement indicating they won't share your personal information with a third party.

And finally review your statements.

Always make sure the amounts charged to your credit card match the amounts shown on your receipt or confirmation page.
