Travelling can get a fun. Safety is a big topic when talking about traveling. It’s a great chance to explore the world, relax with your family and friends. There are no right or wrong reasons to travel, they just have to be right for you! While this is the case, It is also very important to stay safe and ensure you get the most out of Travel. You want to come back with memories, possession and everything you left with pretty intact and not the other way around so it’s important to pay attention to the following tips and tricks to stay safe on travel.
Learn the language.
If you plan to travel worldwide I highly recommend learning the language – not only does it enrich the travel experience it also helps you when you run into problems.
Put your Backpack on The Front of Your Body in Transit.
Property can easily be stolen on public transportation or busy city centers. People are constantly moving and your property could be on another train before you can even blink.
It’s wise to keep your items in the front of your body, with your arms over your bag.
If you must separate your things (say like a train or some buses) or you need to have it on your back, consider something like this backpack mesh cover that keeps pockets and zippers away from sticky hands.
Don’t Walk With Your Phone In Your Hand.
This is especially important while traveling. If your phone is the only internet source you have and it’s stolen, it will make your trip a lot more complicated.
Put your phone away and look up from your screen for anyone suspicious.
Make note of landmarks.
I always advise ‘getting lost’ in cities. But by getting lost, I don’t mean for you to have no idea where you are entirely (though that can happen sometimes). By getting lost, I mean, get rid of the maps and just wander where your heart tells you – while doing this wandering of course, make sure you pay attention to where you’re going so you can trace your steps back.
In tourist-heavy areas, there are a lot of scammers who are really good at what they do.Research your destination before you go to understand the most common tactics in that area.Some use children as a way to make you pity them into giving money. Others can distract you from keeping track of your things.
Make a note of the emergency services numbers.
Remember though that emergency service responses vary from country to country. So it’s probably best to get a sense of what the emergency services are like prior to your journey.
Keep a backup source of money.
Always have an emergency stash just in case! It helps spread the risk of losing all your money in one go. Most countries accept Credit/debit cards so it’s probably good advise to travel with as little cash as you possibly can.
Purchase a travel insurance.
Travel Insurance is a must-have for travel safety! It protects you in case of a medical emergency or theft. It will help to your safety and secure your belongings for you.
