Who doesn’t enjoy traveling? It’s the sweetest escape from your city’s hustle and bustle, it’s a relaxing activity, and it’s an excellent way to renew the mind. Wherever you want to go, I’m confident that the journey will be worth it.

However, since not all experiences are bound to be perfect, it’s better to be cautious when you travel.

So, here are the ways you can keep yourself safe when traveling. Did I hear a “Thank You?” Oh, you’re welcome!

Staying In

  • Check the locations of emergency exits. If you can, stay in a hotel room that’s near the exit or the front desk.
  • Before you smoke or cook, confirm whether these activities are allowed. Also, ask the front desk officer if you can bring a pet.

Eating Out

  • I know you’re in for a food trip, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore your safety! As much as possible, stay away from food shops or restaurants that are too far from the city. Less crowded places are more prone to thieves and criminals.
  • Avoid eating at restaurants located in dark areas. They might be near the city, but if the way to it is suspicious, I suggest you forget it.
  • Be careful about what you eat! If you’re not sure what’s in the meal, you better ask the ingredients first, especially if you have allergies. You won’t be able to enjoy the rest of your travel if you just had an allergic reaction.

From Place to Place

  • No matter how cool it may sound, please don’t hitchhike. Since you’re in a different place, you have less knowledge about the types of people in the area. And because that’s the case, it’s best to ride public vehicles only. It might not be free, but at least you’ll feel safer.
  • Avoid traveling late at night. Unless you’re with a crowd and you know some karate, then go ahead, dance the night away.

Protecting Your Privacy

  • Leave your documents and their photocopies in a safe place.
  • You can talk to strangers, but don’t tell them everything. More importantly, don’t tell them your travel details and which hotel you’re staying.
  • Don’t post everything on social media. “Checking in” is sometimes a bad idea because you can be followed by other people you don’t know. Besides, it would be too annoying for your social media friends if you post every single picture one at a time.
  • Keep your phone and wallet safe. Don’t brag about how thick your wallet is!
