  • Tell a friend or relative where you are going and for how long for - give them some idea of your itinerary if possible and an emergency contact number.
  • Take enough money for your trip and some back-up funds in a mix of cash and travellers cheque/ Travel card -  make a note of the Travellers cheques/ Travel card numbers before you go.
  • Driving abroad? Make sure your licence is current and valid. Make sure you are aware of the driving laws in the country you are visiting.
  • Contact with Indian Consulate if something goes wrong.
  • Don’t openly display valuables such as mobile phones or digital cameras and consider using a padlock on suitcases or backpacks.

  • Consider taking your mobile with you or renting one whilst you’re away.
  • Store useful numbers such as the local police and the nearest embassy or consulate.
  • Check whether it’s safe to drink local tap water- if not, stick to bottled water and avoid salads, non-peeling fruit and ice in drinks.

  • If you haven’t left your valuables at home, leave them in your hotel’s safe.
  • Never accept gifts or packages from unknown parties.
  • Don’t accept items from locals to carry out of the country and deliver or mail to someone they know.
  • Know the laws about exchanging money. Only use official exchange facilities since this is another area that can get you into trouble fast.
