Unfortunately, the world has become a dangerous place, if you turned on the TV, you will hear nothing but shocking news and scary events that mostly happen to tourists –You should do the best you can to protect yourself from being a victim!
There are many travel safety tips you can use that will protect you and your valuables from being stolen, and one of them is blending in with the natives (fun!). We broke down all the information you need to know that we know will help you have a great vacation!
Securing your valuables
1. When you go out to explore the streets of the magnificent city you are visiting, you need to limit the amount of money you are carrying and also hide them where a thief can’t find them. When you are buying something, avoid pulling out a big amount of money from your wallet.
2. One of the best international travel safety tips is to use their currency to make the transactions easier and also to not get the attention of thieves when they see you using a different currency.
3. You need to stash cash, passports and credit cards in different places. In case you lost some, you will still have a few more that you stored in your checked luggage or carry-on.
4. When you are flying, don’t put your passport at the same place with your credit cards and money. Once you are safe at the hotel, lock the passport in a safe place. Hotels can’t be 100% safe, so if you are concerned about theft, especially if the hotel seems sketchy, then just carry it with you. Don’t forget to make multiple copies of important documents before you travel!
