Research a company you plan to do business with
Many of us book our vacations online these days.
But the Better Business Bureau says be sure you're dealing with a reputable travel agency before you book a trip.
First, do your research. Check out a business on the BBB website and read some online reviews.
Also, beware of prices that seem too good to be true.
And pay with a credit card. That way you can dispute the charges, if the business doesn't come through.
