Mr Campbell said: ‘You should always be wary of websites that don’t have a customer service number available or a physical address.’
We credit card to book
According to Mr. Campbell, it is much safer to use a credit card instead of a debit card when booking online.
Fraudulent charges made on a credit card can usually be disputed, while the process with a debit card can be slightly more complicated.
How to claim compensation safely
Always beware of fraudulent compensation emails that land in your inbox.
Mr Campbell said: “If you receive an email claiming to be from a representative of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), delete it immediately.
“The CAA advises affected passengers to contact their airline in the first place.”
If you’re hoping to make a claim after a canceled flight, always check the airline’s terms and conditions first.
Mr Campbell said: “While most airlines will provide a refund or alternative flight, some may also provide assistance during the disruption.
“Don’t forget to check your travel insurance as it may cover you for accommodation costs and other additional expenses.”
