Traveling to unfamiliar destinations can cause you any kind of trouble that you do not want to encounter while on the road, namely: robbery, rape or murder. Tourists often fall victim to the fact that they do not prepare properly before traveling. Let's look at some things you should do to prevent your travels from becoming a disaster:
1. Never enter your luggage address. If you are in business, place your business address on the mark; if you visit friends, you can register the address. Also use the luggage tags provided.
2. Keep the luggage until the luggage has been checked. If you need to put your bag down, have one leg on the handle.
3. Have important documents with you; NEVER check something you simply cannot afford to lose. Copy your passport, driver's license and credit card.
4. Bring a small flashlight. You never know when you will suddenly be "in the dark" and find yourself in an unfamiliar environment. Hold your flashlight by the bed at night.
5. Make sure your prescription drugs are full properly and marked accurate . In some countries, certain prescription drugs are banned.
6. Never use anything that creates wealth. No gold chains, animals and rings, luggage or other accessories should be in light view. Better as well: Leave the jewelry at home.
7. Travel with only one or two credit cards if possible.
8. Women in particular should never accept a drink from strangers. Keep an eye on your drink at all times.
9. Change your schedule; try not to come and go at the same time every day.
10. Only stay in a hotel that uses a card to open the doors of a room and make sure your room has a pit and deadbolt lock. Attach the chain and secure the door by pressing the rubber stopper under it.
11. Stay in a room near a staircase. Never remove the lift if a fire or smoke is detected. Always stay in a hotel where doors enter the corridor and not directly from the outside.
12. Do not use name tags in public.
13. Do not use unmarked taxis.
14. Sit behind the driver so you can see him, but he can't see you.

21. If an official is in custody for any reason, ask for an ID. If in doubt, tell them you want to see their boss. Keep your emotions in check.
22. If you are having children, bring an updated photo of each child if you are separated from them.
23. Write your child's name and hotel number on each card; contain a close friend and cousin or relative of contact information on the map. Give each child a card that it will carry with you as long as you are away. Destroy once home.
24. Talk to your family about what they would do in an emergency in your home, such as who to call, how to contact emergency personnel, etc.
25. Do not discuss travel plans, your room number, or any other personal information in public within unmarried strangers.
