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.
The art of safe travel begins with the traveller.
Travel should be enjoyable, but every day we see travellers expose themselves to risk through carelessness, inexperience or just a lack of awareness.
By highlighting potential risks and dangers when travelling, we aim to prepare the traveller. 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.
Anti Theft Travel Gear
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.
People also now travel with more high-value tech items, and in a time when we tend to carry less actual cash, identity theft and card skimming are becoming more prevalent by the day.
Here’s a look at some of the best anti-theft travel gear and devices on the market. Travel gear stylish and practical enough for day to day use, not just travel.
Travel Health and Wellness
Travel Safety is not just about keeping you and your belongings safe; it is about keeping well and healthy. Staying fit and healthy is just as important as staying safe while you travel.
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.
