Travel is important, but Traveling safety requires a lot of precautions, all people planning a trip should seek advice on potential hazards in their chosen destinations and understand how to best protect themselves and minimize risk. Long-term planning, proper preparation, and careful precautions can protect them and minimize the risk of accidents and unpleasant surprises. Here is the best way to travel.
Research the area that you’re traveling to:
Google is your friend, just go look up where you’re traveling, and look up all the safety precautions. Just as it was traveling to World Cup Qatar 2022. Safety precautions had to be taken.
One of the really cool things about the resource is the embassy website, just type in the country you’re going to and this will bring up all your current concerns and restrictions. Use YouTube to see if there’s anything you need to know about your destination.
The other thing to do is use social media, so use Facebook, Instagram, or any of those types of platforms and find some groups to follow the area you are traveling in not only for safety but what is happening in that area right now so join those groups, and then you can contact the members and ask them for information because they are there probably live now. All this is to keep the information up to date.
Keep your items and documents safe:
Now we are still worried about our passports, scan your passport and keep a copy on your phone or on your computer, somewhere where you know if you lose your passport you will at least have it by email.
Also, email it to a friend or family member back home, so in the worst-case scenario if you lose everything you can ask them to email the embassy where you come from your passport,
The other thing we do to protect those things is that on travel day you have all your stuff with you, we don’t put our passports in our bags and to the extent that we don’t put them directly in our suitcase or something, I just have a small purse around my shoulder, I think for sure, it may be right in front of me.
The other thing is to be aware of your surroundings, if you’re going to an area where you’re going to be in a crowded space, you just take your backpacks and turn them around in front of us, or my backpack hand is right in front of me and my hands are on it.
So just know I’m carrying cash, I don’t have a credit card or anything like that, I just put cash in my pocket, I don’t need much, so keep everything in front of you that way if something should happen and your stuff is taken you have something to lean on then.
Keep your phone charged:
I carry a battery with me if I know I’ll be away all day.
Maybe while we were traveling we found that we actually didn’t get a sim card or cell phone plan in the areas we were in because where we are we have Wi-Fi available, but if you are going to rent a car, and you are going to be out of the Wi-Fi zone, either bring your cell phone plan wherever you are from or just buy a sim card to have the coverage you want to be able to access an emergency number if you break down on the side of the road.
Emergency addresses and numbers:
I screenshot the address in my phone, so I have it if we’re in a cab, and we don’t have cell service, we can just show them our emergency address that you can go to.
The other thing is to make sure you have the emergency numbers for where you will be.
Think about how to find help if you need the hospital address, maybe even look up local doctors and things like that.
Another great reason to keep your phone charged.
Share location with family/friends:
Let others know your location, if you are in a country, and you are going to take a two-day trip, let your family members know that you are going to be away and out of contact, let them know your Airbnb, also let them know your address just in case where they could not reach.
For whatever reason while on an excursion, or you are going away for a few days, let them know when you are leaving and when you are expected to return so that if they don’t hear from you, they know where to start looking, but also when to start looking.
