Advices for future travelers and conflicts

Goolidays is trying to keep its social network as safe as possible, however Goolidays is aware that it is impossible to completely guarantee it. Goolidays reminds every one of its members that they are their first defense against scam and gives them a non-exhaustive list of advices to follow. These are known as the Advices for Future Travelers :

  • When meeting someone you only know from Goolidays, choose a public area.
  • Do not give away your bank information or other sensitive information to someone you do not know.
  • Do not book a ticket or a hotel room for someone you do not know.
  • Before traveling with someone you have never met before, meet them one or several times before the departure date. (e.g. do not agree on a first meeting at the airport or train station on the day of departure).
  • When traveling, choose to book a hotel room or apartment rather than planning to stay at the place of someone you have never met before.

If you follow these advices, you are less likely to be victim of a scam. However, Goolidays cannot guarantee it. Goolidays only provides a tool and cannot be held responsible for any malicious uses of a third party.

Goolidays will notify you of any changes in the Terms of Use and Charter of the Good Traveler and ask you to review them in order to continue using our social network.
