Whenever you arrive in any country, whether it is by boat, plane or whatever you are vulnerable.
You have all your cash, cards, documents and anything else valuable on you right at that moment.
It is even worse if you have never been there before and look like you haven’t; there are always people who are willing to "help". Every precaution you take will help to avoid any potential problems. After all you do not want someone to "help" themselves to your belongings, when you have just arrived. Here are a few tips that should help.
Before leaving for your trip, try to get some prior information as to the rough layout of the airport where you will be arriving. This will help, to have a vague sense of where you should be going and where the taxis are located etc.
Whenever possible, especially in certain countries we recommend taking either the airport limousine, or a hotel pick up.
Never take a taxi that seems just to be hanging around, offering its services when there is a taxi queue available.
Try to keep your wallet and valuables safely secured in a handbag or in one of your hand luggage.
Change some money into the local currency before you depart. This gives you one less thing to worry about, and will stop you from pulling a large amount of money out at the airport arrivals.
Keep a small amount of this local currency, easily accessible in a pocket or something, and away from the majority of your well earned money. You will need sufficient for the ride into town, a tip (perhaps) and a little for unforeseen needs like toll ways or a bottle of water.
If you have not been able to find anything out about the airport that you are visiting then ask one of the airline staff, or the government tourism booth (if they have one at the airport) for some assistance, or tips on the best way of travelling.
Most countries really are very safe, but in others it is really very advisable to take to take as many precautions as possible. No matter what, the most important is that you have a great holiday.
At the Hotel:
Hotels, especially of the four and five star category are normally extremely safe; providing you with a safe box in the room and at the reception area, security guards hiding around the place, and cameras that can be as much your friend as your enemy .
However, still things do occasionally disappear, sometimes without the owner ever knowing that they have gone. So here are a few tips to avoid your valued possessions from taking a walk:
If the hotel has an in room safe box use it and keep all your valuable things in there. However, if the safe is electronic, wipe the touch keys down before operating it with a damp cloth, and then dry it before entering your secret code. Try to do this every time you use the safe.
Also after you have keyed in your code and closed the door firmly locked on the safe, Press all the other keys /numbers that do not make up your code, and press them firmly. Doing this may set off a small alarm from the safe but it stops quickly and no one will pay any attention (!!). The reason to do this is because certain hotels have caught their own hotel staff placing, a light oil residue or powder on to the touch keys that shows them when using a certain light what numbers were pressed. They were managing to open the safe, and one very clever thief was taking only 1 or 2 US$ from each room. Would you have noticed? It is not a lot but in a 400 or 500 room hotel the guy was doing quite well for himself.
Never leave valuables in soft/material bags with pockets even if they are padlocked like Alcatraz, this avoids any potential of somebody simply splitting a seam to a pocket with a knife and removing select contents.
This has happened to one of our clients and he never even noticed until he went into the bag and pockets a while later.
This should also apply to luggage that you check into the airplane.
Never get drunk and invite a stranger to your room. This seems funny, indeed, but better safe than sorry.
