    Almost everyone has heard travel horror stories. From robberies to scams, it is important to be
informed about what to possibly expect on your luxury travel vacations. The most common stories of
being ripped off abroad involve currency, purchasing "priceless artifacts" and being trapped by taxis.
Take a look at these common ways people are either overcharged or ripped off, and use these
strategies to stay in control of your money!

Currency Fraud

One of the most difficult parts about traveling to other countries is using foreign currency. There are
several ways to handle this issue; the most important one is to be somewhat familiar with the exchange
rate. For example, one Euro is the equivalent of $1.50 USD. Also, be familiar with what the local
currency looks like. A common tourist scam is being approached in the airport or in front of a hotel by
what appears to be a fellow tourist. They may wish to exchange some of their "left over" currency for
dollars. They may attempt to sell you counterfeit currency, or offer a high rate of exchange. Do not be
taken in by such people. The only safe way to exchange currency is through a bank, your local
American Express Office, or the purser aboard any luxury world cruise.

Purchasing Antiquities

When traveling to countries with rich ancient histories on a luxury travel vacation, you may be tempted
to take a piece of it home with you. In countries such as China, Egypt and Britain, there are a number
of licensed and unlicensed antiquities dealers that will offer to sell you some of the greatest finds of the
century. But buyer beware, even experts can be fooled by fakes. Not to mention that most countries do
not allow exports of most pieces of their country's history. So, if you did purchase the find of the
century, you will probably not be able to take it home. If you are dedicated to taking something home
with you, go to a well-known and licensed antiquities dealer. Your tour guide or cruise purser should
have the best recommendations. Be sure to ask the right questions, such as delivery options, legality
issues and get a receipt of sale. For more information on the latest AMT American Express Travel

Most travelers get around their destinations via taxis, unless they are on a guided excursion from their
luxury world cruise. Most taxi drives know this, and can spot a tourist from a mile away. They know you
are unfamiliar with the exchange rate, the going local taxi rate and unfamiliar with the area. They may
overprice their rate to take advantage of your ignorance, or take a more scenic route in order to run up
the tab. Some may not run a meter at all and tell you a high flat rate. You can avoid being taken
advantage of by asking the going rate before you step into the cab, and an estimate of how much to
get to your destination. If there is no meter, do not get in. They might not be a legitimate taxi service,
and may take you somewhere unless you pay them off. Do not hesitate to try another taxi if you think
you can do better. Suddenly, the price might change to something more reasonable if you threaten to
look elsewhere.

The first step in avoiding becoming involved in any of these scams is to be aware and informed. For
help with your next luxury world cruise visit

Now that you are armed with information and strategies to avoid becoming involved in these situations,
you are ready to face your luxury travel vacation without fear.

                                                            By Sarah Avery

 Are you looking to take a luxury vacation? If you are, you are urged to examine the Hawaiian Island of
Kauai. What is unique about Hawaii is that it is a vacation destination that is perfect for any type of
travel. Whether you are looking to for a romantic vacation, an adventurous vacation, or a luxury
vacation, Kauai can give you exactly what you want.

As nice as it is to hear that Kauai can give you a luxury vacation, it is important to proceed with caution
when making your travel arrangements. As previously stated, Hawaii is able to accommodate to all
travel needs and you will want to be sure that your needs for luxury are met. For tips on how you can
help make sure that your next Kauai vacation is a luxury vacation, please continue reading on.

When planning Kauai luxury vacations, one of the first travel arrangements made are for air travel.
When making your airline reservations, be sure to examine Hawaii airlines that are known for their
amazing customer service. To travel in luxury, you will want a Hawaii airline that is known for going out
of their way to please their travelers. Examine extra services offered, such as free drinks or snacks,
in-flight movies, and complimentary pillows and blankets. Those seeking Kauai luxury vacations are
also urged to fly first class, as opposed to coach.

One of the best parts of taking a Kauai vacation is all that you can do and see. Kauai is filled with a
large number of activities and attractions; therefore, you will need to plan how you travel. Two popular
options among travelers involve renting a car or relying on public transportation. Those seeking Kauai
luxury vacations will want to examine car rentals. Privacy, which is achieved with a car rental, is an
important component of having a luxury vacation. Also, be sure to examine luxury car rentals, as most
car rental companies have rentals designed for those seeking elegance.

Perhaps, the best way to ensure that your next Kauai vacation is truly a luxury vacation is by wisely
choosing your Kauai vacation rental. One of the easiest ways to find luxury Kauai vacation rentals is
by doing business with an online travel website that classifies their vacation rentals. For example,, has a category titled "Hawaii Luxury Rentals." With that said, even if you
wish to browse through all Kauai vacation rentals, there are still a number of tips that can help you find
a vacation rental that can be classified as a luxury rental.

An easy way to find luxury Kauai vacation rentals on an online travel website is by reviewing rental
names or headlines. Before you are able to view the full listing for a vacation rental, you are often
provided with a brief headline. Headlines containing the words "dream," "estate," or "retreat," are ones
that you will want to examine. A luxury name often translates into a luxury rental.

Price should also be examined. This is nice, as rental prices are also often included in a rental listing
headline. Luxury vacation rentals will be priced higher than most other vacation rentals. Although this
high cost is a turn off for some, it is important to remember that you get what you pay for. And, when
renting a luxury Kauai vacation rental, you often get more than you could have ever imagined. Most
are stocked full of amazing features, including laundry rooms, dishwashers, private garden or patio
areas, swimming pools, hot tubs, and ocean or mountain views.
