Safe Travel Tips On Mean Streets

By Aimee C. Barnard

The best way to avoid any possible dangers during your travels is to keep your head about you at all times. Here are some travel tips to help keep any inconveniences at bay.

1)When it comes to belongings, your passport and your money are the most valuable possessions you have while traveling. Always know where they are wherever you are.

2)Always have a photocopy of your passport secure in a bag different from that which your passport is in. Should you lose your passport, you will at least have something to show.

3)Never get on a taxi (or any other transportation for that matter except when you know the prices are fixed by law) without asking how much you're paying for the ride. Or insist on using the meter.

4)Always have passport size photos in your wallet. You'll never know when you need them.

5)Invest in a quality money belt which is attached to your waist or hanging on your neck.. Make sure it's not visible and that it's strong.

6)As much as possible, don't wear expensive jewelry. Or if you really need to wear some, don't flaunt it.

7)When a cab driver sets a price for the trip, always ask if the price is for a one way trip, round trip, per person, per taxi, etc.

8)Always have the address and phone number of the hotel you're staying in. If you're traveling with a tour guide, have his number as well.

9)When in public places, always have your luggage in view.

10) When departing a country that's known for drug trafficking, be doubly careful with your bags and belongings. They're not that difficult to tamper with. And if this very nice old man should ask you to hold the teddy bear as you go through customs, don't! Harsh I know, but better than you ending up in jail.

11)Always remember the golden rule. If it sounds too good to be true, it must be.

12)When in your hotel or other public buildings, always check where emergency exits are.

13)If someone unexpectedly knocks on your hotel door, don't just open the door. Look through the peep hole and see that you know who the person is. Never let a stranger in.
