Interrailing throughout Eastern Europe can be fun and exhilarating; exploring new cities, experiencing new cultures and trying new things. However, to stay safe you have to be careful and follow these tips to avoid a travel accident.
Be aware of your surroundings to avoid a travel accident
It is very easy to focus on one item such as a landmark and only focus on that. However, this is how a travel accident can occur as you may not see that hole or you may not see that car and suddenly you are facing a serious travel injury.
Keep your personal belongings with you at all times
You hear this all the time on trains in England and for very good reasons. When travelling on the trains in Eastern Europe it is essential that you keep all your personal belongings especially important items such as passport and money on you at all times. This will mean if you do have a travel accident you can get home easier than if you had lost or had your documents stolen.
If in doubt, stick to the busy places
If you do not know the area, and especially if you are on your own, always stick to the busier areas. These will be the safer areas as you will be around a lot of people and if you are on your guard and aware of those around you this should help to prevent a travel accident occurring. Single travellers can often be singled out as vulnerable or a target so try and stay somewhere well lit and public to avoid a travel accident in Eastern Europe.
