British holidaymakers have been given an urgent warning about booking holidays to ten “dangerous” destinations.

The stark advice comes as it’s revealed that UK tourists lost more than £12million to scams last year. 

Now in a bid to stop cyber criminals in their tracks, online security experts from McAfee have revealed the places where internet scams are absolutely rife.

Experts say if you’re trying to book one of the destinations pay extra attention when booking your flight, hotel, rental car or a package offer.

Vonny Gamot from McAfee said: “If a deal sounds too good to be true, it’s best to avoid clicking; instead, go direct to the source and book with reputable companies,” reports GB News.

They added: “Additionally, with the use of AI, scams are becoming even more sophisticated, making it harder for consumers to tell what’s real and what isn’t online. 

“Traditional hallmarks of scams, such as misspelled words and poor grammar, are becoming a thing of the past but one crucial telltale sign remains – a pressure to act fast.”

Those booking online should pay close attention to enticing holiday offers online – particularly for Benidorm, Berlin, and Ibiza as these are top destinations used by cybercriminals to get you to disclose personal information or click on malware-infected links.

Here we give you the rundown of the ‘Top 10 Most ‘Dangerous’ Destinations in 2024’.
