“Travel as much as you can, as far as you can and as long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.”
Travel can be exhilarating but also scary at times. When you’re venturing into the great unknown, follow these safety tips to protect yourself and ensure a happy and secure journey.
Don’t Carry Everything Together
It might be tempting to keep your cash, credit cards, identification, and traveler’s checks in your wallet, but don’t do it. Keep any cash, credit cards, IDs, and checks you won’t be using locked in your hotel room safe. Separate the monetary and identifying items you must carry on you and carry them in different spots on your person. This safety tip prevents you from losing everything should somebody steal your wallet.
Be Aware Of Your Surroundings
Venturing into unknown territory is one of the thrills of travel. But don’t let yourself get easily distracted by sights and sounds. Be cautious and vigilant of where you are.
Raise Help Signal
Don’t hesitate to get help from the surrounding by using personal safety alarms, which would also distract and disorient the attacker.
Carry A Safety Mechanism At All Times
Rechargeable Torch With Shock Effect
If you’re going to be doing any traveling or hiking at night, invest in a strong but compact flashlight you can clip onto your backpack. The Super LED flashlight with electricity hidden in the device will shock your attacker, acting as a good personal protection equipment.
Play To Your Strengths
If you can’t get away and you’re left with no other choice but to fight, use the basic self-defense techniques.
Every state, province, and country has different laws and restrictions about tourists or business people traveling with self-defense products, so full consideration should be given before traveling with self-defense weapons. Ignorance of another state, province, or country’s laws do not grant travelers leniency.
