Travel and tour safety hints

The world over, the travel and tour industry is witnessing a growth not only in numbers but also in the profile of people traveling both domestic and international sectors. Improved standards of living, budget-effective options like the low cost carriers and increased connectivity and greater comforts have given the travel and tour sector the much needed boost. Here are some handy tips to remember for a safe journey.

Before setting out on travel and tour, always take photo copies and keep digital versions of your travel documents like your visa, ticket, passport, credit card, company id etc, in your personal email id or other portable storage devices. This will come in very handy if you loose any of these during your trip.

Many people pack all their valuable items in a single bag. This is very risky because if you loose the bag, then you loose all the valuables at one go. Instead distribute the valuables in different bags for insulation against a total ‘loss’ situation.

During travel and tour always pack the lighter, less heavy items at the base of your backpack and arrange the heavier ones at the top. This technique reduces the baggage weight. Also remember that toiletries should always be first placed in a plastic bag for protection against leakages and spills.

Those taking medication, should inform the airline staff and carry their full medicine dozes just in case the medicines are not available at the new place. Ideally also carry your doctor’s prescription as a precautionary measure.

When on travel and tour, it is better to take the necessary precautions so that you reach your destination securely and enjoy the experience. These handy hints are designed to help you have a hassle-free journey.
