Essential Safety Travel Tips
– Do your research.
Before you travel, spend time getting to know your destination thoroughly. Read traveler reviews and speak with locals (if possible) to find out which areas are the safest to visit and which are the most prone to crime. One more important travel security precaution is to be aware of who to contact in the event of an emergency. Obtain the contact information for the nearest embassy, police station, and other local emergency services departments if you are traveling abroad.
– Make copies of important documents.
Print multiple copies of important documents, such as your passport, driver’s license, and/or other identification cards, and save them both on your computer and online. You never know when you might find yourself in a situation where you need to use them. Put them all in one safe file case so that you don’t have to scramble to find the right documents when you need them.
– Be aware of your surroundings.
Keep your guard up at all times when taking a picture for memorabilia, no matter how much you want to get it right. Keep your belongings out of sight and out of mind. Make certain that they are always within your line of sight and reach.
When conversing with strangers, make sound judgments. In the event that someone in your immediate vicinity is acting suspiciously, or if you feel uncomfortable around someone, leave the area immediately.
When looking at maps, avoid drawing too much attention to yourself by wearing excessively ornate accessories. Make every effort to blend in with the crowd as much as possible.
– Keep your family and friends updated.
No matter where you are going, it is always a good idea to inform your family and friends of your plans. Check-in with your trusted contacts on a regular basis to ensure that they are aware of your whereabouts.
