You’ve planned this trip for months now. Your itinerary is planned out down to the minute, your suitcases are fit to burst, and you’ve got your plane tickets at the ready. But have you prepared to make your trip as safe as possible?

After all, traveling to a different country can present a whole host of problems, from passport issues to different kinds of diseases. So what steps can you take to stay as safe as possible?

Well, if you want to know the answers to that question, you’ve come to the right place. We’re here with the top 5 tips to travel safe internationally!

So, are you ready? Then let’s hop in!

1. Research, Research, Research

Before you embark on your international trip, do your research as to what risks to expect when you travel. For example, see if any large storms or other natural disasters could happen soon at your travel destination. You don’t want to land in Brazil only to have to turn around because a hurricane is a few miles away.

It’s also worth researching what diseases are more common in other parts of the world. For example, if you’re vacationing at the Bali Safari Marine Park in Indonesia, you’ll want typhoid and Hepatitis A vaccinations as that country carries a risk of getting those diseases.

2. Keep Both Eyes Open If You Want to Travel Safe

One of the worst things you can do when traveling internationally is to stop paying attention to your surroundings. Exercise caution and don’t hesitate to leave somewhere if it makes you uncomfortable. Remember to keep your belongings secure and safe at all times to prevent theft or damage.

This extends to your hotel room as well. Don’t let anyone not confirmed by the hotel into your room and lock the door before you go.

3. Bring Back-Up Copies

If you lose any critical documents you brought with you on your trip (like your passport or insurance), disaster will strike. To avoid this, make copies of any of these documents you see as important to make sure you don’t end up stranded in a foreign land.

4. Tell Someone Where You’re Going

Before you depart on your international trip, make sure to let friends and family know where you’re going and how long you intend to go. That way, should some form of tragedy strike, you’ll have someone on the other end looking for you and not get caught alone somewhere you’re unfamiliar.

5. Public Wi-Fi? No Thanks

It’s tempting to hook your devices up to public wi-Fi for quick Internet access without any password hassles. However, public Wi-Fi is far less secure and savvy hackers can steal your info with ease from your computer. Use tricks like VPN’s or secured Wi-Fi to stay safe.

Time to Go See the World
