Useful travel tips
For a pleasant visit
- Make excursions along well-known and marked tourist routes.
- Bring your accommodation details with you, including name, address, telephone number and reservation code.
- Withdraw money from ATMs located in banks or authorized establishments, avoid help from strangers. Exchange currency only at banks and authorized exchange establishments.
- Ask if you will need to show any original ID documents to enter the attractions you plan to visit.
- Check the tourist attractions’ opening hours ahead of your visit.
- Drink bottled or boiled water.
- Avoid eating food from unauthorized street vendors.
- Take normal security precautions like in any other tourist destination. Watch your belongings and avoid lonely places.
When hiring or purchasing tourist services
- Ensure you are dealing with an authorized service provider. Check with IPERÚ.
- Check more than one formal company before hiring a service. Request the details of their cancellation policies and service conditions in writing.
- Request proof of payment (sales receipt or tax invoice) for payments and purchases.
- Hire official taxis. Negotiate the fare before entering a taxi as the taxis do not carry taximeters in Peru.
In case of non-compliant services
- Ask the company for the Complaints Book to file your claim or contact Indecopi and / or IPERÚ to receive guidance.
- Keep in mind that quality tourist services do not come cheap.
