How To Avoid Crime When On Holiday
When you travel overseas, crime can be a legitimate concern. Knowing what to do and what items to bring will help you avoid being the victim of a robbery. This will pave the way for an enjoyable trip.
Before you leave, investigate the area you’re traveling to thoroughly. Find out where the danger zones are and avoid them at all costs. Put your itinerary together of where you will be lodging, and the sites you will be visiting. Make extra copies of your passport, credit cards, driver’s license, airline tickets and Social Security card. Leave a copy with your attorney for safe keeping. You should also leave a copy of these items locked in the safe of your hotel room in case of an emergency.
When traveling abroad, keep your valuables hidden in a money belt. These are inexpensive and worth every penny. Money belts can be worn underneath your clothing, and they are a great place to store your credit cards, passport, cash, tickets and your itinerary. Try to have it appear invisible, so thieves won’t even think about robbing you. The money belt is also less cumbersome, and can take the place of a wallet or purse.
A great way to avoid crime when traveling abroad is to dress like the locals. Avoid wearing expensive clothes and jewelry. This will only attract attention, and make you appear conspicuous to con men and pick pockets. Also, stay away from suspicious displays of activity and excitement on the street. These demonstrations are usually put on to attract tourists, so thieves can rob unsuspecting tourists when they are caught up in the commotion.
Always carry minimal amounts of cash in your money belt when sightseeing and dining out. You can keep the remainder of your money, and any other valuables locked in the safe of your hotel room. This way if you are the victim of a robbery, you could explain to the thief that this is all the cash you have. If you need to visit the ATM, make sure to shield the pin pad. Don’t forget to grab your debit card once you’ve completed the transaction at the ATM.
Always learn a few phrases of the local language in case of an emergency. Have them written down and handy in case you need to contact the police or you need to seek out medical attention. Keep a list of emergency numbers just in case. These should include your hotel, police, fire and your lawyer. This way if you’re involved in a crime, you will have the necessary documentation to contact them immediately.
Finally, walk with purpose when you are moving about. Try to act as if you know what you are doing and where you are going. If you get lost, seek out directions only from people in authority.
Always Safe, Always Prepared
