Are you looking to safeguard your important items and your bags when traveling?  If so then these tips should be followed.

  • Dress down when you travel and don’t flaunt money or jewellery.
  • Avoid carrying your camera or laptop in an obvious looking camera or laptop bag.
  • Carry extra money and identification concealed in a hidden money belt.
  • Make yourself appear to be a difficult target.
  • Stay at safe, well known locations, in safe parts of the cities and towns you travel to.
  • Always lock your luggage and also zip tie them shut to avoid strangers tampering with your bags.
  • Use identification labels that cannot be casually read by bystanders to avoid strangers knowing your identity.
  • Never leave your bags unattended.
  • Never carry gifts, letters or parcels from strangers in your baggage.
  • If you are in an area where baggage slashing by thieves is common, use wire mesh which is resistant to cutting, over your bags for added security.

    Good advice, things we don’t often think of when traveling. I think, more importantly than those listed, that you have to mask your attitude, the air you have about yourself, no matter how much you dress down people can get a sense of you just by your attitude.
