How to Avoid Scams in Europe

Secure Your Belongings: Leave valuables, passports, and extra cash behind to prevent pickpocketing in busy tourist areas.

Avoid Street Swindlers: Never accept "free" items like bracelets or roses from strangers, as they will demand payment afterward.

Be Cautious with Beggars: Understand that there are many public resources available, so giving money directly may not be necessary.

Use Trusted Financial Channels:  Avoid wire transfers for bookings and use official bank ATMs to prevent financial scams.

Verify Identification:  Only use registered taxis and official tour guides to avoid overcharges and subpar services.
