Instead of keeping money in your wallet and constantly taking it in and out, you should put small changes in a separate wallet to spend on errands.
As for cash, credit cards, passports, and important documents, keep them in your waist bag or money pouch and then put on your jacket.
Buy an anti-theft bag
A great way to avoid theft when traveling is to have an anti-theft bag. While it’s generally more expensive, it’s a great investment.
If you’re traveling to a new place for the first time or visiting a country well-known for pickpocketing, it will save you lots of headaches.
Be aware of followers
When you go to remote places, especially in other countries traveling, you need to be careful to see if someone is watching you.
If someone is following you or is acting suspiciously, it is best to find a way out of their sight or seek help.
Be cautious with taxi
Using transport in unfamiliar places is also a matter of concern for travelers.
Don’t assume that a taxi is the safest means of transport. When you’re in a new place or don’t know the local language, it is best to ask the airport security staff or the hotel receptionist to find a reputable taxi company.
If you are more cautious, take a photo of the taxi’s license plate and driver’s license card to send to your loved ones in case something terrible happens.
I always do some research about reputable taxi companies before traveling. Also, I prefer booking my rides through apps such as Grab or Uber to avoid overcharged and unwanted situations.
Avoid taking phone calls on the streets
If you must answer the phone, stand where you can see it. For example, I usually choose a corner or a curb with a power pole or a tree.
