While in route to Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club, it is possible to fall victim to several travel-related scams, however. While these issues do occur and do affect travelers, an informed and aware traveler is most likely a safe traveler, as most scams focus on people who are distracted by the sights and sounds of their vacation destination. While travelers can rest assured that they are safe and sound while enjoying any of the bars and V.I.P. beaches at LHVC's incredible resorts, outside of the resort, travelers must remain vigilant and always keep their belongings on them. It is easy to have several drinks and let one's guard down in as beautiful of a place as the Dominican Republic, but it is always advisable to stay aware.

One of the biggest issues that people seem to have when they go on vacation anywhere is that they end up losing valuable items. While there are some scammers out there that will pickpocket unsuspecting travelers, more than likely, the item falls out of a bag or is misplaced. The Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Scam Reduction Team advises vacationers to keep extremely expensive or irreplaceable items at home whenever they travel.

Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Scam Reduction Team is aware that many people will be traveling to paradise in the Dominican Republic by plane. While at the airport, make sure to only use secured Internet connections, as unsecure and public connections are prime locations for scammers to hack into travelers' computers to get their sensitive information. Refrain from checking bank accounts, important email accounts and other information-sensitive accounts to make sure that all log in and password information stays secret.
