  • Research your destination before you go. This includes learning about the local culture, customs, and any potential safety concerns. It’s also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the local emergency services and how to contact them in case of an emergency.
  • Make copies of important documents. Before you leave, make copies of your passport, travel insurance, and any other important documents. Leave a copy with a trusted friend or family member, and bring a copy with you in case of an emergency.
  • Stay in safe and reputable accommodation. Do your research and book a place that has a good reputation for safety.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. This means avoiding dark alleys, staying in well-lit areas, and being cautious of your surroundings when using public transportation.

  • Use common sense. If something doesn’t feel right, trust your instincts and remove yourself from the situation.
  • Keep in touch with loved ones. Let your loved ones know your itinerary and check in with them regularly to let them know you’re okay. Consider using a tracking app or wearable device to share your location with trusted contacts.
  • Use safety measures when travelling. Always lock your hotel room door and use the safety lock on your suitcase.
  • Learn basic self-defence techniques. Consider taking a self-defence class before your trip or packing a personal alarm to use in case of an emergency.
