Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) says telco giant Verizon Wireless is scamming U.S. travelers to Israel with its TravelPass service. The plan, which promises big savings to customers who travel abroad with a flat rate of only $10 per day, has resulted in a bait-and-switch for many New Yorkers - including the Assemblyman himself.
"When I travel abroad, I'm like everyone else - I want the best possible deals," said Hikind. "Naturally, when I heard about Verizon's TravelPass, I was interested. Who doesn't want to save money and have the convenience of using their own phone?"
