Eye on Travel from JW Marriott

This week’s broadcast of Eye on Travel comes from JW Marriott in Washington DC on this July 4th weekend. Peter has a full global travel update. And as travel comes roaring back, so do travel scams.

Joining Peter this week is Senator Amy Klobuchar, who talks about her new bill, Protecting Consumers from Travel Fraud Act.

And he’ll explain why. There’s all this — along with the 411 on the state of the restaurant industry Nycci Nellis — on this week’s Eye on Travel.
