Make sure that you don’t make yourself a part of this statistic by always being aware of your surroundings and always have that safety mindset during your travels. It is always a good idea to obtain travel insurance when you go on these trips. Make sure that you closely study the policies and know the level of protection that you get from them. Study the locations that you will be visiting. Try to know the level of safety these areas, especially for foreign travelers. Avoid going out alone at night when you are traveling. Try to travel with groups or visit areas where there are crowds. Avoid those quiet side streets where you can easily get lost or be trapped when you are traveling all alone. Remember it is always better to be safe than to be sorry.

Transportation Options

Going from one place to another can also be a safety issue. There are many modes of transportation available in different parts of the world. They may have different levels of safety. Make sure that you choose only the safest options available for you when you travel. Try to avoid those modes of transportation that may be risky, no matter how fun they may look. Avoid incidents of being robbed by taking reputable taxis known in the area. Know the general rates you need to pay to avoid being overcharged.

Money Matters

Make sure that you are always aware of your money and your financial status when you do travel. Make sure that you always have your expenses in mind for comparison with your travel budget. Set aside a certain amount in your budget for possible emergencies. As much as possible, make purchases using your credit card instead of bringing along a lot of cash with you wherever you go. Try also not to put all your money in one place, where just a single robbery can change the whole travel experience drastically. Spread your travel budget so that in case you do get robbed, you still have some money hidden away somewhere that you can use.
