Travel Safety Tips

We believe safe travel is not luck or coincidence. While sometimes we do get lucky when we travel, travel safety can also be a bit of an art developed with experience.

But mostly, travel safety is about preparation, a good dash of vigilance and knowing what to do in case of an emergency without putting a dampener on your trip. 

Below you will find a collection of our best safe travel articles to help you put the best possible preventative measures in place to stay safe while you travel and, ultimately, have enjoyable and positive travel experiences.

The art of safe travel begins with the traveller.

Travel safety and security of personal items are the highest priorities for travellers. With more people travelling than ever before, popular tourist destinations are becoming more crowded each season. These are ideal environments for pickpockets and thieves.

Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is the most important travel purchase you will make. 

Travel insurance is the first thing we buy as soon as we book a trip. Like all travellers, we like to know we are covered while we travel, especially in medical emergencies. But we also want to know we are covered before we travel for any unforeseen cancellations. 

We have used World Nomads Travel Insurance since we started travelling full time over six years ago. In that time, we have made a few reasonably big claims. Both of which involved medical assistance while travelling. Each time we had access to support 24 hours a day and the resulting claims were straightforward. 

We love that you can buy and claim online, even after you’ve left home. Perfect if you need to extend your coverage while you’re still travelling.

Travel insurance from WorldNomads.com is available to people from 140 countries with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities.
