My Tips for Staying Safe as You Travel

Staying safe as you travel is really important. It shouldn’t be the only thing you focus on - if you do that, you’ll probably spend your entire travel time a nervous wreck! However, you do need to take some precautions and be smart so that you can stay safe on your trip and enjoy it to the fullest. These tips can help you!

Make Copies Of Important Documents

Making a few copies of important documents and keeping them in a separate place can save you from big trouble if you lose any of your things or forget where you put something. You might never need them, but this won’t hurt.

Research The Area Properly

Wherever you’re travelling to, make sure you research the area properly. Make sure you know the safe areas, and the areas you should maybe avoid. Make sure you’re aware of what to look out for so you can spot a scam. You can find free information on anything from Italian hotels to Crete villas. Do your research so you’re well clued up before going anywhere.

Stay Somewhere Recommended

Read up on places to stay and stay somewhere with good reviews. There are lots of hotels and villas you could choose from.

Know What To Do In An Emergency

Make sure you know what to do in the event of an emergency. If somebody dangerous did approach you, how would you react? Sometimes, it’s best to give them what they want rather than trying to fight them or resist - like your wallet. For this reason, some travellers carry two wallets with them.

Note Down Important Numbers

Write down any important numbers you might need. If you lost your bag with your phone and other important things inside, what numbers would you really need? You’d likely need some for home, and some for the country you’re in.

Don’t Dress Flashy

Dressing in a flashy way is a huge mistake, especially in poorer countries. Even a watch could indicate that you have money and make you a target for scams and things. Dress modestly, and in line with the country you’re visiting. You’ll avoid all kinds of awkward situations if you look like you belong there rather than like a tourist.

9 Tips to Make Sure You Travel in Style

Travelling in style isn’t as difficult as some people make it out to be. Although it can be tempting to travel in your laziest, comfiest clothes, they’ll probably make you feel even worse when you arrive at your destination. These 9 tips will help you travel in style every time!

Invest In Decent Luggage

Your luggage isn’t something you probably think of much. Does it really matter what your suitcase looks like? It doesn’t necessarily matter, but it can help you to travel in style. Investing in a decent brand of luggage will mean it’s sturdy and lasts you a long time. It’ll also look better than cheap cases! Don’t get anything too fancy though, as they can be targeted by thieves.

Leave Fussy Jewelry At Home

Leave any fussy jewelry at home or pack it in your case. Don’t wear it! You’ll have to mess around when you get to security, and it can get annoying hearing them jingle jangle all over the place after a while. 

Pick A Nice Outfit

Pick a nice outfit to travel in. You want it to be comfortable, but not too comfortable. Travelling in your pyjamas probably isn’t the best idea if you want to look stylish.

Make Sure Your Shoes Are Comfortable

Some people travel in heels, and although they are stylish, you won’t be very comfortable. If your feet are killing you, you’re not going to look like the serene travelling goddess you envision. You can still travel in style while wearing nice pumps or flats, so choose your shoes wisely!

Pack Mini Touch Up Items

There are rules and regulations when it comes to what you can and can’t pack. However, you should make sure you pack mini touch up items if you want to look your best. Maybe a small concealer or something if you have a long flight. People on long flights can benefit from nourishing face creams too. Flying for a long time can really take it out of your skin, so make sure you take the steps to look after it!

Pick A Nice Hat

Worried about getting plane hair? Pick a nice hat! This should stop you from messing with your hair too much.

Keep It Simple Overall

Overall, make sure you’re keeping your look nice and simple. You can definitely look stylish while keeping it simple. Neutral colours and simple items of clothing will keep you comfortable and look good too.
