Innocent travelers make easy targets for burglars as they stand out in a crowd, are fresh to the environments and usually carry cash, credit cards and other valuables. You can avoid the possibility of getting attacked or mugged by taking few simple safety measures. It is a good notion to study the safety of your planned destination on the government department’s website of that particular area as this will help you to be updated about your travel journey.  Here are some of the realistic facts one should keep in mind while going to other places as a traveler:

  • Travel Safety:
  • When you are visiting any place, you should be conscious about everything for e.g. Your accommodation area.
  • Whenever you travel anywhere it’s an alien land for you, so try to avoid moving at night.
  • Enquire with your hotel manager about the unsafe places in the locality.
  • Carry with you the contact details of your dwelling place as this can work out as a way in case of any emergency.
  • In case you get mugged up, lose your wristwatch and few pounds instead of losing your life that costs more than this.
  • Avoid visiting riots and disturbed areas.
  • Transit Safety:
  • Avoid changing money at airports, as thieves may be watching you.
  • Consult a tourist guide for everything you need while travelling as this may reduce your chances of getting lost.
  • Avoid sharing taxis with strangers.
  • Hotel Safety:
  • Try to search for the place where swipe cards work then the numerical keys.
  • Make a note of emergency exits, staircases, just in case.
  • When waiting for the business colleagues to meet, ask them to wait in the lobby. Don’t ask them to visit you in your room.
  • Don’t stand out from the gathering while travelling:
  • Even though you lost your destination, still pretend that you have a purpose, and you know the directions.
  • Match yourself with the locals by dressing up like them as this can avoid the chances of you being left out.
  • Be inconspicuous while reading the map. Notice the actions of people around you.
  • Avoid dressing lavishly while travelling:
  • Avoid wearing expensive jewelry and costly clothes as thieves can easily pick you out from the crowd because of this.
  • Consider carrying a dummy wallet as this can work as a savior if you are mugged by robbers, you can hand this to them, avoiding any further consequences.
  • Try to keep your money in a small portion in different places.
