I am extremely pissed off upset whenever i found out that someone’s had been ripped off during their travels

… and so i decided to make a small research on which ” travel websites” / “travel agents” or “guides” that need to be avoided!

Here are the list of  TAs, Guides, TWs that you might want to avoid:  in alphabetical order (kind of. HAH!)
