1) Carry of copy of your passport with you while in country.

2) Travel in large groups rather than alone.

3) Choose a safe and secure hotel rather than a cheap one.

4) Remember to leave contact information (i.e., email address or phone number) with family and friends so they can get in touch with you abroad.

5) Refrain from carrying large bags while touring.
6) Contact the police immediately and report it if you are victimized.

7) Be aware of your surroundings and avoid social distractions (e.g., cell phones and mp3 players)

8) Surrender your valuables if confronted by thieves. They can be replaced.

9) Be extra careful when using public transportation abroad. If possible avoid using crowded busses.

10) Get sound security advice by contacting your embassy or consulate and speaking with someone in the security office.

Great tips. I find that metros and subway systems are a great place for people to take advantage of the crowds and steal something out of your bad, so I always keep my bag extra close to me in situations like this.

During traveling carry a copy of passport with you and travel in a group rather than alone.

Also when it comes to bringing cash, make sure that it's not located only in your wallet. Put some loose change in your pocket, have a money belt - very important and do not bring large amounts of money. Only bring what you think you will spend for the day.

Having an itinerary is also important. Have a map of the place handy so that if you get lost, you will be able to find your way back.

Always bring your passport and ID's with you.

Thanks for sharing these safety tips. These are really helpful while traveling. I visit a site: Royal Jets has developed, implemented, and maintains a full functioning safety management system. One of the main reasons why I prefer to fly with Royal jets is there understanding of our rigorous safety standards.

While traveling to any place the first and for most with which we have to deal with is vehicle parking. To solve this problem, parking lot management was set up to monitor the number of parked vehicles, in and out timings, space available, etc.

Really good tips...Its really helpful.

My suggestions

1. Are your flights booked and tickets printed out?

2. Did you made your hotel reservations or arranged places to stay?

3. What about the rest of your itinerary?

4. Did you make a copy or scan of all your important travel documents and financial documents and did you store them somewhere where you can always access them (like dropbox)?

5. Do you need a visa?

7. Is your passport still valid long enough?

8. And what about vaccinations and medicines? Do you need vaccinations and do you have enough medicines for the months you are away?

9. Have you checked your travel and health insurance?

10. Any ongoing costs you can scrap? Like your phone or car bills, magazines, maybe even rent?

11. Do you have enough money on your bankaccount and enough cash?

12. Are your bankcards allowed in the country you are going to or do you need to purchase a creditcard?

13. Have you bought everything you need? Like a backpack, suitcase, hiking boots, chargers and sd cards for your camera, etcetera

14. Have you asked someone to take care of your apartment/pets/plants and someone to check your mail?

15. Did you let everyone know you are going? Your boss, your family, your friends and even your bank (so you can use ATM machines in foreign countries) etcetera

16. Can you sell some stuff you aren’t going to use anymore to save some extra money for your trip?

17. Have you asked someone to take you (and pick you up) to (and from) the airport?

18. Have you done your research about language barriers, cultural differences and things you can and cannot do in the country you are going to?

19. Have you bought maps, guide books and have you saved important phone numbers in you phone? Like doctors, alarm numbers, family etcetera
