#1 – Display Vital Health Information on Your Phone
If you suffer from any serious medical conditions like severe allergies and are traveling alone, you will be glad to know that there are smartphone apps available that will show this medical information on your lock screen, so that the first responder can properly do your health information management without unlocking your phone.
#2 – Hide your money in your shoes
This is one of the most basic travel tips, but it can save you from some unpleasant situations and keep you from getting robbed. It is always good to have some money with you, in case your wallet is stolen and you end up without your credit and debit cards. Preferably, try to carry local currency.
#3 – Keep your valuables separated
If you are traveling with a friend, you should split the valuables between each other, so that if one of you gets robbed or loses a bag, you don’t end up losing everything you need to get through the rest of your vacation.
If you are traveling all by yourself, ask for the two hotel keys and carry them with you separately, keep some of your money on your wallet and some of it in your shoe, keep the credit card on your money belt and the debit card in your pocket, for example.
If someone tries to rob you, you can just hand them your wallet, for example, and keep your other hidden belongings.
