It can be very hard to spot fake reviews for hotels on TripAdvisor. However, I just came across fake (duplicate) reviews and then fake reviewer accounts by accident. While reading many reviews for several different hotels in Plitvice Lakes Croatia, one unassuming positive review caught my eye because a detail (free wi-fi) conflicted with the hotel ...

Spotting fake reviews on Trip Advisor or on any review site can be easy or could be very difficult given that it is becoming widespread. The only bonus is that Trip advisor is becoming well known for this behaviour amongst the travelling community and Google etc and is/has been lambasted for such. I have recently returned from a two week holiday at an ...

Unless the online agency's card processor prohibits them from accepting credit cards from outside Sweden, there should be no issue with using your card. These days most online businesses accept cards from around the world, but occasionally you find a business with restrictions. As to the fee, you need to contact your bank or card issuer and ask what their ...

I've been here in Georgia for almost 3 weeks now and have had intestinal problems off and on. In Tbilisi I ventured out and ate at local restaurants, including having tea. When I stopped having tea and only drank coffee or bottled beverages, then I stopped having problems (diarrhea). I ventured out to the regions, ate with local family, and had problems ...
