Holiday safety tips to ensure you travel safely

  • Don’t flaunt your valuables. Try to be as discreet as possible with your valuables. Keep your belongings out of sight if you're travelling in a car, pack your camera into a secure bag rather than holding it around your neck, and keep wallets out of visible pockets.
  • Develop travel-savvy habits. Get into the habit of doing an automatic check every time you get up from a seat or table. Make sure that you haven’t left a bag behind, and do a quick check to make sure you still have your valuables on you.
  • Decoy wallet. If you’re travelling in a place that has a reputation for muggings and unsafe streets, a well-known trick is to use a decoy wallet. In the worst case scenario, you could get out of the situation quickly without losing your most valuable items.
  • Travel-safe luggage. Invest in quality locks and travel-safe bags. A slash-proof day bag will go a long way in preventing pickpockets and thieves from stealing your belongings when you’re out and about.
  • Scan important documents. If the unthinkable happens, paper copies of your passport, visas and other identity documents will come in handy. Keep electronic backups too.
  • Separate your money and cards. Keep your cash separate from your everyday card, which is kept separately from your backup card. Keep your passport separate from everything.
  • Avoid tourist traps. Pickpockets and petty criminals tend to gravitate towards tourist hotspots, so it’s best to avoid them when you can. If you have to go, be extra-cautious and make sure your valuables are out of sight.
  • Befriend locals and get their advice. Locals have insider information and can tell you what to keep an eye out for.
  • Get travel insurance. Travel with peace of mind and get travel insurance.
  • Get vaccinated. Check with your doctor about what vaccinations are necessary, and make sure you take backup medication if you need it.
  • Consider a travel money card. Prepaid travel cards, travel credit cards and debit cards are secured against theft and fraud. They also allow you to spend your money in multiple currencies, which means you need to carry less cash. Compare your travel money options to find the best card for you.
  • Back up your data Stuff tends to go missing on adventures. Save yourself from the pain of data loss by backing up your essentials on a hard drive or in the cloud.
  • Make sure your passwords are secure. Make sure your devices have secure passwords just in case they end up in the wrong hands.
