Safety Abroad

  • Try to blend in with the locals as much as possible
  • Familiarize yourself with your surroundings before setting out, and carry yourself with confidence
  • If you get lost and need to check your map, go into a shop as opposed to checking your whereabouts in the street
  • Don't admit to people that you are travelling alone and if possible let a relative know your holiday itinerary
  • When going out at night only use well lit streets
  • Leave valuables at home where possible
  • Keep important documents, passport etc on your person whenever possible
  • Carry as little cash as is necessary and keep a small reserve hidden elsewhere for emergencies.
  • Pickpockets are rife on public transport, never let your bags out of your site
  • If you are in a car and it breaks down, wait for the police.
  • Make an attempt to learn local traffic signals
  • Carjacking is a crime for the oportunist. Drive with your car doors locked and don't drive in bad neighbourhoods at night.
  • If you are likely to be travelling alone at night it may be wise to hire a cell phone if you do not already have one.
  • If you are hit by another car do not get out but pull over to a well lit side of the street, although rare 'bump and rob' attacks do still happen.
  • It is an offence to drive without wearing a seatbelt and small children (under 40lbs) must be seated in a car seat. (most rental companies will hire car seats)
  • Use public beaches only and do not stray onto private land. Trespassing is an offence and you could be arrested or in worst case the land owner could shoot at you.
