Be Safe when Traveling

There are some great safety devices to use when traveling. Here are some you should consider to enhance your personal safety.1.

Use a money belt to keep your valuables close to you to eliminate pickpockets. Even then, don't bring all your money with you when you are out and about. If you should lose your money belt, you don't want to lose all your money.2.A hidden compartment safe can be purchased online for as little as $10 or $20 and they look like regular household objects that have a secret opening in the bottom to let you put your valuables.

Buy a hidden compartment safe that matches the type of thing people might travel with, such as a can of pop. Just make sure that the hotel staff do not mistake it for trash and throw it out! Perhaps, keep your valuables in your hidden compartment safe and keep the safe in the hotel bar fridge.3.A door jam or door chime are two great personal security devices to have when you're staying at a hotel. Both of these objects are placed by the door and are activated when someone opens the door.

For example, the door chime makes a sound when it senses movement because it is hung right on the door handle. Alternatively, the door jam looks very similar to any regular triangular door jam and is put very close to the closed door. When someone opens the door it hits the door jam and sets off an alarm that will scare them away and wake you up.4.

For when you are out and about, you should carry a personal alarm with you. These are small, light alarms on a wrist-strap that give off a piercing shriek when the wrist-strap is pulled from the alarm case. This will scare off most attackers and alert passersby to your situation.5.

Another option, if it is allowed where you are traveling, is to carry pepper spray. However, you should check local regulations first to know whether or not it is legal to carry and use.6.If pepper spray is not legal to use, there are other options that you can carry that are perfectly legal to carry. If you are feeling less than secure about your personal safety, just purchase any small can of bright spray paint and when attacked, you can spray your attacker in the face.

The paint in their eyes should give you enough time to get away and report the attack. Authorities will have no problem identifying your attacker when you report them!.7.Avoid carrying weapons to defend yourself, especially if you are traveling outside of North America. This includes real-looking fake weapons.Your personal safety and the safety of your belongings is paramount to you enjoying your holiday and returning home intact.

Follow these simple steps to help you maximize your safety and enjoyment.
