Travel Safety Tips
Travel To Go recommends that you make sure you have all your information filled in on your passport. This includes information such as the emergency information page as well as your signature. If you are required to have a visa as well, make sure all the same information is filled in there too.
- Leave a copy of your itinerary and important information with someone you trust. This can and should include things like your passport, emergency contact information and phone numbers so that you may be contacted in case of an emergency.
- Get to know the area rules and conditions before you go. By learning the area conditions including weather, any political issues which may arise as well as what people wear and rules that differ from those you are used to, you can avoid issues which may otherwise come about.
- Do your part to avoid sticking out. Those who look like easy targets will generally be targeted by those out for an easy score. Try to dress and act more like the locals to avoid becoming a target when you travel.
Consider registering your trip with the STEP Program. Created to help U.S. citizens traveling abroad, the STEP program offers travelers the opportunity to learn more about their destination as well as providing a sense of security that in case of emergency, the government has a way to contact you and help you. By following these tips for travel abroad, you can ensure a fun experience with Travel To Go.
