Safety in raise an airport sign for customers.
Raising the airport sign is something that hotels, preachers or tour guides have been doing for more than 10-20 years. There are many reasons for raising an airport sign. For our company as a tour guide, it will be holding up a sign to pick up customers at the general airport to take the customers to the hotel that the customer has reserved and for the general public. There will be raising a sign as well, but it will be like the customer’s relatives hold the sign to accept customers only to make it easier to meet up faster. Therefore, the formality of the information written on the sign doesn’t have to be equivalent to that of a tour guide or hotel.
As this occupation became more popular and less regulated by the authorities or officers in the airport. The intrusion of scammers who disguise themselves in the form of tourist guides or dressed up in imitation of hotel staff in the area has also increased. The type of customers or passengers most likely to be deceived or threatened by these scammers are those who traveling alone, the customers who travel without studying the details of the countries that they travel to or it might be a customer who doesn’t know the language as they should in that area. Without understanding communication, it may lead to the customer encountering unexpected things.
The actions of these scammers can be in many forms for example extorting money, rape a female customer, they may cause bodily harm and possibly lead to death without the control of the authorities, it may affect travel agencies or hotels in a negative image and cause customers to distrust this occupation. The authorities therefore issued regulations that certify various agencies that hold signs for customers in the airport that this agency exists. The travel agency or hotel must provide the name of the receiving customer and the flight information that must appear on the airport sign. If you are an employee of a tour guide company, you must have a certificate that you are actually an employee of the company and submit your ID card to the staff for inspection. Once certified, the staff will stamp it on the customer acceptance plate.
For the customer. You can check the travel agency or hotel where you will be staying by checking the company’s website. There are calls to talk to the clergy or ask questions via social media. Upon arrival at the airport, you can check the travel agency holding a sign to pick you up more by asking the airport staff who is responsible in this situation. You must ask for the name of the company in charge. Do the names and information of the employee of the receiving company and the name of the customer and the details on the sign match? This is to enhance the safety of the customers themselves in addition to the certification of officials.
