You're excited to go on holiday and have been planning it for ages, but you still have one important thing to do: make sure you're prepared. Below we've listed some things you should do before you go away to ensure your trip is as safe as possible.
You should take out travel insurance to protect yourself and your valuables. If you have any expensive possessions, such as jewellery, make sure they are insured. Ask your travel agent for advice on how much coverage is right for you.
If you're going on holiday, it's a good idea to take your phone apart and carry the components separately. If a thief were to grab your bag, it'd be much harder for them to get their hands on your phone if they didn't have access to the whole thing.
To avoid losing your phone while travelling:
Keep it in its case - especially if you've got an expensive model! A good case will provide extra protection against drops and bumps, as well as prevent scratches. Plus, some cases come with security features like fingerprint scanners or facial recognition technology that make accessing the contents of your phone much more difficult for thieves (and other people).
Be prepared: Make sure you have your passport or other identification with you at all times, and bring copies of your travel insurance policy, itinerary and credit card.
Stay aware: Keep an eye on your belongings so that they don't get stolen. Don't leave them unattended in a crowded area or on the beach overnight.
Bring cash in small denominations so that it's easier to exchange if needed.
Keep valuables in one spot at all times (like a fanny pack), so they're not easily accessible to pickpockets.
All in all, there are many steps you can take to ensure your holiday is safe and enjoyable. However, it’s also important to remember that sometimes bad things happen despite our best efforts. If they do happen, it’s important to stay calm and keep a positive outlook on life so that life doesn’t get too stressful for us all!
