#3 All your important and costly items should stay secure in a bag, never into your backpack or luggage. If you let passport, phone, camera and any technology out of your sight, that is a fair change that they could be away from you forever.
Watch your Drinking
#4 Alcohol dull your senses, slow your reaction, which in turn makes you vulnerable to others. Drink slowly, have a glass of water in between each drink and always take drinks directly from bartender and ask yourself; Do I want to be less in control than I´m right now? Stop if the answer is no.

Less of a Target
#5 Don´t flaunt your valuables such as wearing jewellery and expensive rings when they travel. One of my favourites: Conceal cash by rolling it up and stick it in an empty tampon applicator – one unused. Slide it back into the wrapper and you´re set.
#6 It´s hard for any to spend extra cash on accommodation when it could go to many more fun activities. But it´s smart idea to financially invest in safety and take taxi back home at night. Pay more to stay in a central part of the city with lively activity instead of a cheaper in quiet residential area.
#7 Yes, you absolutely need travel insurance. If you need to go to the hospital or are robbed, travel insurance will provide you with the security you need.
It is important to note that while some travel credit cards offer mild insurance coverage, it is often not comprehensive. If you lose your luggage, get stranded due to airline problems, or need to travel for family medical emergencies, you may be covered. However, it is very rare, if not impossible, to find a travel credit card that offers medical coverage in any capacity. If you’re looking for travel insurance, it is suggested you look elsewhere for a more comprehensive plan.
If you need a resource on travel insurance we’ve become big fans of this site ConsumersAdvocate.org. They rated World Nomads “Best for the Young and the Restless” and they seem to have been continually updating their research since the beginning of the pandemic.
