Eccentry Holidays is providing tips that are crucial for travelers to take and understand, as their financial security can be easily reinforced by knowing what to expect from potential scam artists.

In 2014, millions of travelers will fall victim to scam artists and scams that they simply were not aware of. Eccentry Holidays is offering travelers tips that are designed to reduce the number of travelers who end up affected by vacation-ruining scams.  

Eccentry Holidays tips are quick to point out that travelers should never distribute credit card information over the telephone to businesses they are not familiar with. A common travel scam seen increasingly across the country is for scam artists to create a fake advertisement for a local business that features great discounts and sales for guests staying at the targeted resort. Travelers will see these ads as a great way to save on delivery food and call the number posted in the advertisement, which ultimately is a bogus number. The scam artist posing as the business will then collect the credit card information that the traveler provides to them.

The tips from Eccentry Holidays also target airport scams commonly seen by travelers. While not necessarily a new scam, these sorts of criminal activities are seen commonly enough that it warrants a reminder for travelers. In this particular scam, two thieves will work together to steal from an unaware traveler. One scam artists will “accidently” spill a drink or food onto a traveler sitting at a cafe. During the confusion the second scam artist will swoop in and make off with the distracted traveler’s bag or cell phone. No matter what happens, always keep an eye on personal belongings and never leave items unattended.

The final piece of advice from Eccentry Holidays is for travelers to leave all irreplaceable valuables at home. Not only does this entirely eliminate the chances of an item being stolen, but it also is one less thing to pack and haul around to all of the planned destinations.

With these scam prevention tips, Eccentry Holidays hopes that all travelers have a safe and secure 2015 vacation experience.

Jun 16, 2015 by

 

For those who are spending their summer vacations in Florida this year, Eccentry Holidays offers tips for items they should bring to the beach.

For those who are spending their summer vacations in Florida this year, Eccentry Holidays offers tips for items they should bring to the beach.

For many travelers, Florida is the perfect spot for summer fun. From the upbeat energy of Miami, to the fun to be had for families at the Orlando theme parks, the Sunshine State is the perfect spot for summer vacations. Eccentry Holiday  knows that no summer trip to Florida would be complete without spending some time relaxing or exploring at the beach.  Beach vacations are synonymous with summer and for travelers who are hitting the beach in Florida this year, here are the best things to bring along to make the most of days at the beach.

  1. Beach Chair:  While a beach chair is not a necessity for beach travel, it is certainly a nice thing to have along. Picking out the perfect beach chair will allow travelers to relax and enjoy the lovely atmosphere in comfort. The advantage of beach chairs is also that they keep travelers from having to sit or lie in the sand, which tends to get into everything.
  2. Toys:  For travelers who have kids, toys for the beach are a must. Kids like playing in the sand, so brining along shovels and buckets will give them something to enjoy and entertain themselves with for hours. Eccentry Holiday  believes that even adults can have fun building sand castles on their beach trips. Additionally, things like beach balls and Frisbees are fun for the entire family to use together, and provides ample chances for family bonding.
  3. Portable Shade:  Summer and sun are synonymous, and it is important for travelers to protect themselves while they are enjoying the beach. Clothing like sunglasses, hats, and cover-ups to wear over swimsuits will protect travelers from the sun, and things like beach umbrellas will keep them shaded and cool. Additionally, sunscreen and lip balm will protect travelers’ skin. Staying safe in the sun is an important step to enjoying the beaches of Florida.

Eccentry Holiday  wants to make sure that every traveler that visits Florida can enjoy their trip to the fullest. Visiting a beautiful beach location is one of the many ways that travelers this summer can make their Florida vacations even more magical. For more information on Florida travel, please visit www.eccentryholidays.com.

Eccentry Holidays Presents Some Simple Travel Tips

May 7, 2015 by

Eccentry Holidays Presents Some Simple Travel Tips

Eccentry Holidays Offer some tips for your incoming trips

Eccentry Holidays understands that many people go out on vacation and do not end up packing enough supplies or snacks for one of two reasons.  The first reason is because of travel restrictions if you are flying or just plain running out. In order to remedy this situation you should locate and find convenience stores or local department stores wherever you are traveling to for your vacation. This will help keep you fully stocked up on your necessities such as toothpaste, hairbrushes and any snacks.

The internet again is a life saver in this regard as you can go online and type in the information about the cities or locations you are traveling to and see which ones are nearby your accommodations. What, you say you don’t have the internet at home or a working computer? Then you can go to a friend’s house if they have it or your local library and use their computer for free.

Eccentry Holidays knows that it is much cheaper than having to go out to eat every night when you have a small snack craving. This also will make your snacking healthier and it will guarantee that your family will have the foods that they like when they are hungry for something smaller to eat. You can pick up the healthier foods at a local grocer there such as fruits and veggies if you prefer. You will be amazed at how much you save when you do this little change in your traveling habits. Eccentry Holidays states that the money saved then can be used to complete the fun activities of traveling and sightseeing.

Eccentry Holidays Shares Best Destinations for a Scenic Fall Hike

Apr 15, 2015 by

Eccentry Holidays provides advice about some of the best places to visit for travelers who love to hike.

Eccentry Holidays, a leading luxury vacation provider, knows that for any traveler, one of the best aspects of a vacation is the fun activities that family and friends get to participate in together. Another great aspect for many on vacation is getting the opportunity to interact with nature. As the sweltering summer comes to a close, many are wondering what some of the best areas to visit are to experience the gorgeous season changes. Taking a hike is one of the best ways to incorporate all these aspects into any vacation. Here are some of the best places to visit this fall for scenic hikes.

1. Colorado:  Many travelers out there hope for the chance to see some of the colorful changes of the leaves during the fall season. Eccentry Holidays knows that Denver is one area that has a lot of beautiful trees that travelers can enjoy.  Elk Falls Overlook, located at Staunton State Park, is an area that is truly an amazing sight to see during this time of year. This hike offers both great views and a beautiful waterfall. Also, Devil’s Head Firetower Hike takes travelers up Rampart Range that is dotted with huge Aspens right from the beginning of the trail.

2. Washington: Eccentry Holidays knows that this state’s diversity of flora and fauna found in the mountains makes for one of the most spectacular fall color displays around.  From the dark red colors of the vine maples found on the western slopes, to the fiery orange color of the huckleberry shrubs, all the way to the cheerful golden colors of the alpine larches on the eastern slope, the hillsides seem to light up during the autumn. North Cascades (Maple Pass Loop, near Lake Ann) offers some of the best views, so make sure to bring a camera.

3. North Carolina: Last but not least, Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the top places in the United States for seeing the fall foliage. The diversity of trees, along with a broad elevation range, creates a beautiful scene that hikers flock to from all over to enjoy.  Eccentry Holidays advises visiting during early or mid-October, when the color reaches the peaks of nearly 4,500 feet in the Smokies.

Planning a fall vacation to any of these destinations will offer travelers plenty of scenic sights and adventure. For more information or to start planning a vacation today, please visit www.eccentryholidays.com

Eccentry Holidays Shares Essential 2015 Travel Safety Tips

Apr 6, 2015 by

Travel Secrets from Eccentry Holidays for 2015

Eccentry Holidays is a leading provider of world-class vacation accommodations, and is offering several safety tips to ensure that travelers have a quality vacation experience.

Staying safe is vital to a successful trip. There are many things to consider when traveling, one thing Eccentry Holidays knows gets forgotten about sometimes is safety measures. Always having its members’ best interests in mind, Eccentry Holidays has developed a list of their top safety tips.

Be Aware Of Surroundings

It’s easy to get disoriented and sometimes even lost when in an unfamiliar place. Eccentry Holidays recommends taking a detailed map and using a camera to document where important places are such as the hotel, restaurants, landmarks and even public safety buildings. Having a visual guide can be helpful when needing to identify destinations. Trying to figure out directions when lost can also make vacationers easy targets, as they are not always alert to people around them.

Pack Emergency Supplies

No one plans on being stranded, whether it’s when going for a sightseeing drive, a hike in the wilderness or just having a flight delay. Eccentry Holidays encourages travelers to pack water, protein bars, warm clothes and a basic first aid kit. Being prepared for unforeseen circumstances can stop a bad situation from becoming worse.

Avoid Distractions

Distracted vacationers tend to be easy targets for thieves and scam artists. Eccentry Holidays advises travelers to be mindful when using cell phones and walking, or searching for items and purses and bags, particularly in areas that are mostly deserted or when it’s getting dark outside. Criminals are less likely to strike when their targets are alert. Many scam artists use distraction as an opportunity to tag team victims as well, one will be the distraction while the other will pick pocket, or grab purses and bags.

In Case Of Emergency

ICE, or In Case of Emergency, contact numbers should be in everyone’s phones and wallets regardless of whether or not they are vacationing or just out and about their home town. Law enforcement and emergency responders are trained to look for those three letters. Eccentry Holidays, hopes that no one ever needs to make use of emergency contacts, but accidents do happen. Listing medications and medical issues in the same place is also recommended.

Being safe while traveling is Eccentry Holidays wish for its members and all travelers.

Enjoy the Caribbean in style with a choice between cities like Punta Cana or Las Terrenas, each very reasonably priced.

But travelers with families who hope to tour around the Big Easy will find this is a city known for some amazing ghost stories, local culture and tons of history to learn more about. Those who visit will want to head here during the spring time, which when prices are lower than ever but weather is warm and sunny. Experience the charming atmosphere at Jackson Square, where travelers will enjoy seeing local performers sing, dance or even seek out their future in a tarot reading, and be sure to stop by Café Du Monde for the tasty famous beignets.

Eccentry Holidays shares that these affordable vacation destinations offer an amazing experience often for a much lower price that some of the other popular tourist destinations that seem to hike up the price during the popular travel season. These places provide a lot of fun without breaking the bank, something important for those hoping to be budget conscious during this time of year.
