    Default safety travel tips

    Hello Everyone
    Traveling to unfamiliar destinations can bring to you the sort of troubles you do not want to experience while on the road namely: robbery, rape, or murder. Tourists often fall prey to perpetrators because they do not prepare properly before embarking on a trip. Let's examine some things you should do to prevent your travels from becoming a tragedy:

    1. Never list your home address on the luggage tag. If on business, put the company's address on the tag; if visiting friends you can list their address. Use covered luggage tags as well.
    2. Stay with your luggage until the luggage is checked. If you must put your bag down, keep one foot on the handle.
    3. Carry important papers with you; NEVER check anything that you simply cannot afford to lose. Photocopy your passport, driver's license and credit cards.
    4. Bring a small flashlight. You never know when you'll suddenly be "in the dark" and find yourself in unfamiliar surroundings. At night, keep your flashlight by your bed.
    5. Make sure that your prescription medicines are filled properly and labeled accurately. In some countries certain prescription medicines are forbidden.
    6. Never wear anything that projects affluence. No gold chains, expensive watches and rings, luggage, or other paraphernalia should be in easy view. Better yet: leave your jewelry at home.
    7. If possible travel with only one or two credit cards.
    8. Women particularly should never accept a drink from a stranger. Keep an eye on your drink at all times.
    9. Vary your schedule; try not to come and go at the same time everyday.
    10. Only stay in a hotel that uses cards to open room doors and make sure your room has a peephole and a deadbolt lock. Secure the chain and secure the door by pushing a rubber stop under it.

    Traveling is not an easy task because you have to take all the things into consideration. The most important thing is packing your luggage. Packing your bags for that exotic trip is not an easy task. Especially, when you have to remember all the essentials and things-not-to-carry.

    While planning any trip you should also plan and investigate about some of the things of that place like hospitals, police stations their numbers etc. It would be better if you have a smartphone with gps system enabled it will assist you in finding your ways.
