Written with international travelers in mind, the book will prove equally valuable to those who need advice for domestic travel, including everyday life around town.
IRVING, Texas –
(PRWEB) November 28, 2012 -- Although the world seems to be getting smaller thanks to a combination of transportation networks and social media connections, it’s also becoming more dangerous for travelers, according to a safety consultant with two decades of experience. “The world has always had its share of dangerous places, but for the most part, those places were well known and easily avoided, while still maintaining a robust travel life,” the author writes in the introduction to this new book. “However, as we begin the twenty-first century, the lines between safe and unsafe travel destinations have been blurred by terrorism and violent crime.”
“Passport to Safe Travel” provides practical tips for travelers of any sort, designed to reduce the risk of crime and keep them as safe as possible. From sites that allow travelers to thoroughly research destinations, what to pack – or leave at home – and hotel safety, the book’s no-nonsense tone delivers lots of information in an easy-to-read format. For instance, travelers headed to Israel should consider their restaurant seating; in places with a history of suicide bombers, “a window seat can quickly translate into a face full of shrapnel,” the author writes.
Safe transportation – including on foot – and keeping valuables and money out of the hands of thieves also receive their due. The final chapter provides a quick summary of the most important safety themes: doing travel homework, maintaining a low profile, being aware of surroundings at all times, securing belongings and being alert for scams. Written with international travelers in mind, the book will prove equally valuable to those who need advice for domestic travel, including everyday life around town.
Author Jeff Haywood’s experience with personal safety and security provides the perfect background to write a book on how to travel safely. The former law enforcement officer and government counterterrorist operative consults with government agencies, private businesses and individuals as president of Ronin Global Safety Group Inc., which he founded. He and his wife, Katheryn, have had lots of adventures together.
