when you browse the chances are you will have a travel course and without incidents. However, if you are not aware of the basic security travel you can become a victim of crime or violence. If exercise you the discretion, aren’t too confidence and do not put yourself in risky situations, your travel must be safe and worry free. Not afraid to travel – travel with care.
here are some of my suggestions to help you travel safely.
1. baggage tags – never put your home address and phone number as this is advertising the fact that you will be out of the country. I put my phone number and business address and I use a tag that has a cover.
2. never leave your luggage unattended.
4. dress down. Do not wear expensive jewelry that it draws attention. I leave my valuables at home and costume jewelry.
5. never wear the badges in public.
6. only take taxis clearly identified with official marks. Beware of unmarked taxis.
7. If taking a taxi, sitting behind the driver so that you can see, but he cannot see you.
8. If you drive, Park in well-lit areas well fly
9. Do not use shortcuts, narrow streets or poorly lit streets.
10. Avoid demonstrations and other civil unrest.
11. Do not give your room number or any other personal information in public. When you give my room number of traveling companions I say quietly away from others or write on a piece of paper and hand it to them private.
12. If you stay alone in a hotel room, ask for a lower floor near the elevator. If my room is down the Hall I insist on having it gets closer to the elevator for your personal safety.
13. Keep the door locked at all times and use safety chains. I put a dot in front of the door during the night like the sound of it being moved will spark me if someone tries to enter my room.
14. Read the safety instructions fire in your hotel room. Know how to report a fire and be sure you know where doing the fire nearest other exits are located. Count the doors between your room and the nearest exit; This could be a lifesaver if you have to parse through a hallway full of smoke.
15. If you’re alone, do not get the elevator if there is a suspicious person on the inside.
16. Take note of the hotel name, address and telephone number. If become you disoriented you can go into a shop or ask a local authority at your hotel. I pick up a map at the front desk or the clerk of the hotel write information on a piece of paper for me.
17. Flash never your money in public, when paying for items remove discreetly to your wallet or your purse… I have always to wear a Fanny Pack and keep a small amount of money here to pay for incidentals.
18. Wear a money belt to secure your valuables. I keep my passport, credit cards, insurance information and cash in my belt and use my money belt for small cash forests.
19. You can leave the bag. If some grab your bag let go. If you fight you may incur damage.
20. Do not carry a purse on the shoulder or hang it on the back of a Chair. If I’m carrying a handbag I keep on the front of my body and turn the when the part inwards, zipper dining I keep it on my knees.
21. Be aware of your environment at all times and beware of pickpockets. Usually they work in pairs and distract you. They ask for directions or play the bump and grab routine, a person you work while the other grabs your purse or pics you pocket.
22. Never accept food or drink from a stranger. Keep an eye on your drink at any time.
23. Learn the local laws and customs. When you travel you are subject to the laws of the country you are visiting. Until you go, learn as much as possible about the local laws and customs of the places you plan to visit.
24. Leave all unnecessary parts identification at home. I take my passport, insurance and 1 1 debit and credit card information. Let your driver’s license (if not to rent a car), social insurance card health and credit cards not used at home.
25. Leave a copy of your travel itinerary information and hotel contact with a family member or a close friend. If anything should they know where you are and that you have a better chance to get a hand on you.
26. Copy of your Passport, information on insurance, credit and debit card numbers and emergency numbers. Take a copy with you and keep separate the originals. Leave a copy with a family member or a close friend. If you lose one of these elements that makes it much easier to cancel the cards or have your Passport replaced.
27. In case of accident, make sure that you have completed the information inside your Passport page. Include the name, address and telephone number of a person to contact in case of emergency.
28. Register with your Government. The Government of the Canada offers services of what they can contact to help you in an emergency abroad, such as a natural disaster or civil unrest, or inform you of a family emergency at home. Click on the following link to register.
