Hello forum friends,
We are about to make a deposit for our upcoming Egypt trip in October. We have a private tour arranged through Go Luxor Tours, who I have researched and have been communicating with almost daily by WhatsApp.
We also are booking our Nile cruise separately through Djed Egypt Travel and will be paying by credit card with 2.5% added for transaction fee.
So, Go Luxor tours is a small company that gets great reviews on Trip Advisor and I have also seen the company used on a travel blog that I follow, Twoboomersabroad.com and have communicated with the blogger about the said company. She highly recommends them as do many TA posters.
This is my dilemma; Go Luxor Tours is a small company and does not take credit cards. So, this means I have to wire the money and that makes me nervous as I still remember Horsewoofies experience getting ripped off by travel agent. So, even though I have done my research and vetted the agency as much as I can, I am still a tad nervous.
What do my forum friends think? Will travel insurance protect me against fraud?
