10 ways to reduce risk & save money when travelling

10 ways to reduce risk & save money when travelling
  • If you see a sign that says “beware of pickpockets” do not instinctively pat all your pockets that contain valuables. Often pickpockets will either stand near these signs or even put up the signs themselves!
  • You can usually find decent and cheap food in more ethnic areas. You just have to find them, the internet is a wonderful resource but speaking with cabbies, hotel & bar staff will also work.
  • If a tourist, don’t stand around with a map, it’s makes you stand out to those people who want to prey on tourists. Instead: Walk into a store or use Google Maps Turn-by-turn with a set of headphones
  • If taking the last train or bus somewhere aim for the 2nd to last to ensure you don’t miss it
  • Always walk with a sense of purpose, even if you’re lost. Headphones (even if off) & a hoody will also help you from getting stopped by theives, scammers etc.
  • If you’re leaving your car parked somewhere always ensure any valuables (even a few quid) are hidden
  • Always keep cash in multiple locations, if you do get threatened and your wallet stolen then at least you’ve kept part of your cash. If abroad maybe consider placing a ‘£20’ (in equivent currency) in a hidden location on you, i.e. your shoe/bra/pants etc.
  • Be extremely careful of what you post on social media, #location or check-in location = an easy way for tourists to be picked on by scammers. It is suprisingly easy to find out lots of information about people online.
  • Tell family, colleagues, neighbours or hotel staff about where you’re going and when you plan to return
  • If there is an emergency then do you know where to go? Identify places like police stations, hospitals, official buildings along your route just in case
