Most of these travel safety tips may seem obvious or common sense to you, but they say that common sense is the least common of all senses, so it is worth remembering them.
That is why you can read some safety tips for traveling abroad below:
-Always look around you: Many people take advantage of these little moments of tourist perplexity to do their own thing, so don’t let that happen to you. You don’t need to distrust everyone around you, just a little look over your shoulder will suffice.
-If you pretend that you are a person who is going to at least resist an attack, it is most likely that they will not attack you. If I’m a thief, why choose someone who’s going to put up a fight if I can choose someone easier to rob?
-Nothing is as valuable as your life, so if someone asks you for your money, wallet, cell phone, computer, etc., give it to them and do not resist.
– Close your bag or backpack at all times.
-Create the habit of constantly checking that your bag and backpack are closed and you will see that you will not lose anything again.
-Scan all your documents: Passport, birth certificate, national medical insurance and international medical insurance, driver’s license, national identification, military service card (if you have one), proof of address, etc.
-Know a little about the most frequent scams of the place where you go.
-Have a travel insurance.
-Before leaving on a trip, make sure you visit a clinic specializing in traveler’s illnesses to see if you need any vaccinations.
-Your suitcases and backpacks will become an extension of you, never separate from them, unless absolutely necessary.
-Avoid using your credit card or putting your passwords in a cyber cafe or with public WiFi. If necessary, use a VPN instead.
-Avoid feeding wild animals.
-Don’t look at your cell phone when you walk down the street.
Do not postpone a trip because you do not have this knowledge, right now when you leave your house you could go through an emergency where any type of knowledge could make a big difference, so it is better to be prepared for any eventuality and not only when traveling.
