When you travel abroad you may need to be more aware of your safety than in this country. Some countries unfortunately have high rates of crime and often tourists are targeted as they don’t know the areas or what to look out for.
When travelling abroad, try and book as much of your travel in advance as possible. Even booking taxis from a reputable company could put your mind at ease that not only should you be safe but that you will not be ripped off if you have already agreed a price. When venturing out of your complex you can always ask the reception staff of areas in which you should or shouldn’t visit and if there are any local scams that you should be aware of. Often just doing a bit of research on the internet before you go will give you a good indication of what to look out for.
