How to be safe when travelling and make an injury claim if something goes wrong
Safety when travelling can be more difficult than being safe when you are at home. When you are on the move a lot, you will find it more difficult to keep track of what is going on around you, which means that you are more at risk of an accident or injury.
You may also be more vulnerable to being attacked or mugged, if you look like a tourist in an area that is well known for criminal acts against tourists. Here are some tips for taking care of yourself when you are travelling, for both the journey itself and when you are spending time in a new location.
- Travel with others. As much as you can, try to make travel plans with other people to give yourself a chance to enjoy your travelling without having to worry about things going wrong. With two or more people you are safer from attackers, and you will also be able to share the burden of watching out for potential problems.
- Know where you are going. Whenever you are travelling, make sure that you have taken the time to plot your route carefully, as well as one or two back-up routes just in case something goes wrong with your initial choice.
- Have some back up money. Just in case something goes wrong, a little money put aside can help you to make other travel plans, or at least to get to safety until you can do something about the situation. Depending on how far you are travelling will depend on how much cash you need, but try to have a little more than you think is necessary.
- Have your phone fully charged. Never set out on any long journey without a fully charged phone, as this could be your lifeline if something goes wrong.
