Every travelers desire is to have a safe trip, and there is nothing quite like packing a bag and getting ready for your next big adventure. After all, it usually means something fun is in store.

There’s so many ways to take your vacation to the next level. Whether it’s heading off for a business trip or staying in a five-star hotel for a luxurious break, there are plenty of times we might need to stay away from home. Thankfully, it could soon be even easier and more fun than before.

Whether you travel often or you’re getting ready for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation, it’s important to think about safety as part of your travel preparations. The following tips can help travelers plan for a safe and comfortable trip and may reduce the risk of many different types of crimes.

according to “Backpacking the world is one hell of a rollercoaster. 99% of the time, backpackers are able to stay safe while traveling the world. But every now and again, something goes wrong.”

When someone you care about is hopping on a plane, you want them to have a safe journey no matter where they go.

But sometimes it can be hard to come up with the right words other than “have a safe flight.”

This phrase can sound a bit generic and hollow like you’re simply going through the motions of a goodbye rather than truly wishing them a safe trip.

So what exactly is a ‘safe trip?’ We all expect to make it to our destination without any hurt harm or danger. But there are defiantly some  unwanted things that can happen.

according to “Robbery or mugging is a common form of violent crime all over the world. Unfortunately, any traveler can fall victim.”

I’ve researched some very important things that will help you have a safe trip according to

  • Share your travel information.

    Before you leave, share your itinerary with someone you trust. Include the address and phone number of your accommodations and transportation information, like flight numbers. As you know flight details change.

  • Beware of “Vacation Brain.”

    It’s nice to relax and put your worries on pause, but that doesn’t mean you should let your guard down. Many vacation destinations can create a false sense of security. You may become fast friends with the people you meet, but give them time to earn your trust.

  • Beware of scams when travelling

    • Posing as a police officer and asking to check your money for counterfeit bills.
    • Posing as a tour guide and offering to show you the sights of the city.
    • Slipping sedative drugs into your food or drink.
    • Thieves in different cities tend to favour different scams. Ask your hotel manager or local tourist information officer for more information.
  • Don't make yourself an attractive target when travelling

    Try not to stand out with bright colors and expensive bags and or jewelery.

  • Hotel safety

    Hotel key card

    • If possible, choose accommodation that has unmarked ‘swipe cards’ rather than numbered keys for each room. If you lose your swipe card or if it is stolen, the thief won’t know which room to rob.
    • Take note of emergency exits, stairwells, fire escapes and emergency plans, just in case.
    • Always lock your hotel door when retiring for the night. If there is a chain included, use it.
    • When arranging to meet people you’ve never met before (such as business associates), wait for them in the lobby. Don’t ask them to come up to your room.
