No Fear 4 Wheel Suitcase

When it comes to travelling, one of the main concerns for a lot of people is safety. Whether it’s travelling alone or with a group, for a week or for a month, safety is one factor that everyone has to consider. Travel retailers take a look at what precautions to take.

Countries such as Thailand, Mexico and Jamaica are known for being more dangerous than the likes of Majorca, Cyprus and Portugal, however, stolen goods and accidents can happen anywhere in the World, even in secluded resorts so it is important to always be on guard.

When on holiday it is easy to get carried away by the new surroundings, beautiful sights and excitement, but it is essential not to have the blinkers on, and be aware of what is happening around you. Always ensure you know where your personal belongings are and before you leave a place double check you have everything.

Travel documents such as passport, insurance details, visa and flight details should all be scanned and e-mailed to yourself. It is also worth e-mailing yourself a copy of your bank details and all the important telephone numbers you need. If they are saved to your e-mails and you lose your belongings, you can always log in to a computer and you will have all the important information you need.

Leave your valuables and precious items at home. First of all, if they are worth more to you than just money then it is not worth risking losing or damaging them. Plus, when you’re going abroad you are more likely to be wealthier than the locals there, so it is best not to display your finest jewellery or possessions.

Before you go anywhere check if the country you are visiting requires you need to have a vaccination. Sometimes these need to be done a few weeks in advanced so check as soon as you before to ensure that you are vaccinated for the entire time you are away.

Luggage with zipped inner and outer pockets are also advisable for storing your money and identification as they will be much harder to get to than your back pocket. If you are backpacking then consider using locks on the zips for extra security and safety.
