There are three common travel scams that you can easily avoid if you know how they work. They all involve currency exchange. 1. Watch out for bad exchange rates at banks or currency exchange offices. 2. Don’t allow a foreign ATM machine to exchange your money for you. 3. When paying with a credit card, always choose to pay in the local currency.
