It doesn’t matter whether you are traveling alone or in a group of people, for business or just for pleasure, the most important things is how you should be traveling safe. Below is 6 ways on how you can have a safer travel.

Stay Connected

Back in the days when our ancestors travel on such a long journey, they had no smartphones or Skype to help them stay connected with those back at home. Families and friends were left without messages and no one knew whether these ancient travelers lived or died. Nowadays, we are lucky to have all kinds of device to help us stay connected. Make good use of your smartphones, laptops, free Wi-Fi and even that online Google map.(Image by David Haase)

Travel Insurance

Most people doubt that they would ever need a travel insurance. This is because some people travel on a very short period of time while others tend to be extra careful of their surroundings. This leaving us wondering whether getting a travel insurance is a top priority or otherwise. However, imagine that your stuff got stolen or lost, health insurance won’t be able to help you up with these cases. Before you leave your home to travel to Europe or Southeast Asia, we suggest checking out HBF travel insurance for great plans, policies and coverages.

Be Skeptical

It’s not a bad thing to do to be skeptical of others. Especially to those strangers who are being a little “too nice” to you. Some people are genuinely nice to others, while there are those who take advantage of a situation. Whatever you do and wherever you are, always take extra precautions of yourself and your surroundings. When things seem to be super awkward and just don’t seem to go right, always turn around and save yourself.

Keep Important Items in Separate Places

Divide your money and credit cards between two wallets or purses. Preferably, if you can get a “Steal-Me Wallet/Purse”, use it as a disguise. This is the one that you will throw to the pickpocket. Just put $10 and an expired credit card, and you’re done. The rest of your money and credit cards should be distributed in separate safe places. As for your passport, ensure that you have a few photocopies of it as well. The original should be kept safely in your hotel and only bring the photocopy with you.

Ensure Your Lodgings Are Safe

Make sure that the security chain of your door is fastened and locked. Also, if possible try to get a room as close as you can to the concierge desk or the elevators. Stay away from rooms at ground floors where the entry through a window is possible and if you are not expecting anyone, do not answer the door.

Always Stay Healthy

What is worse than getting sick while you are traveling? Make sure the water is safe to drink. If you have an insect bite and get sick because of it, check whether it’s because of a spider, snake or just mosquito. Do not forget hand sanitizer and bring along an extra supply of prescription medications if you need one of those.(Image by newsusacontent)

Whatever you do, do not try to be a hero and venture into an unknown territory alone. Just because traveling is supposed to be fun and adventurous, doesn’t mean you will need to risk your life for it. Of all travel safety tips, the most important one is: Do not leave common sense at home.
