Don’t panic! These measures are taken in case you met up with some unfortunate incidents or accidents. It doesn’t mean, you are bound to get into problems while travelling. Prioritizing safety is not at all a negative factor. It’s more like a requirement like travel hacks. So keep the following tips in your mind and have a safe and happy journey!
- Research about your destination: Ding in-depth research about your upcoming travel destination will help you know about ‘Do’s and don’ts’ in there. You will get an overall idea about their culture and routines which will help you to enjoy the trip without hurting or offending the natives there.
- Use online and offline Google maps: Google map is one of the best friends in our journey. It can help us in finding the best and safe travel routes and give us an overall idea of the routes we have to take. Even if we choose a taxi or public transport, make sure to double-check the routes on Google maps. Before starting your trip, download Google offline maps too.
- Don’t draw much attention: In familiar places, we know how society works but in unfamiliar places, it is a good idea not to draw much attention, to a safe and happy trip, because, we are foreign to their behaviours, customs and culture. You don’t want to be targeted right?
- Write down all emergency numbers and immediate contacts on paper and carry them with you all the time: In case you get lost, you can call for help from the emergency numbers and you can also let your family or friends know your status. It is a great idea to call for help when you are in distress. Because sometimes in moments of panic, we won’t be able to remember the mobile numbers.
- Update your family and friends about your whereabouts: While you are on a trip, even though, many of you didn’t want to, still, connect with your family or friends and update them about your whereabouts. So that, in case of any accidents, your friends or family can immediately find and help you.
- Carry with you necessary gadgets all the time: While you are exploring, it is a fact that you won’t be able to charge your phone all the time. So it is essential to carry with you power banks or other similar necessary gadgets.
- Don’t carry with your a large amount of money: It is good to carry with you some money but not the bulk of it. If anyone spotted, a large sum of money with you, you can be their target. Other than the money you needed for local transportation or other small needs, always use online payment modes.
- Avoid wearing expensive jewellery: Wearing expensive jewellery makes you stand out and this may cause you trouble. To save yourself from robbery or similar crimes, avoid wearing expensive jewelry. Just don’t bring jewellery on a trip. That’s the better way.
- Avoid shortcuts: Taking shortcuts will save you time. But at the same time, risk factors are more in shortcuts. If you are travelling alone, avoid taking shortcuts.
The above tips will come in handy, in your journey. It will enable you to blend with the local community and will prevent you from becoming the target of fraudsters and thieves.
