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. At least $74 million was lost due to travel related scams during the pandemic. And that’s an 80% increase over 2019. Joining Peter this week is Senator Amy Klobuchar, who talks about her new bill, Protecting Consumers from Travel Fraud Act. Roxanne Roberts from The Washington Post, on life in Washington DC post-pandemic. And pilot Greg Morris insists you wear at least SPF30 sunscreen before boarding your next flight. 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.
