Traveling around the world is easy these days, but you never know if there is going to be a hostel environment, so here’s some tips to keep things secure and safe. For one, do not carry your valuables around with you when you’re going somewhere with a large crowd. Thieves use the large crowds to cover their pickpocketing. When you travel you do not want to bring your social security card, or your birth certificate with you and if you do bring it, check to see if your hotel or motel has a safety deposit box to store your valuables. Also before you make your plans to travel to a hostel, figure out the things you can live without, like expensive jewelry, and heirlooms. Another thing to refrain from doing is wearing jewelry in the open, for it will lower the chances of thieves targeting you or your group. Also when you leave your hotel, make sure you lock you door.
After your party or group has settled in, and when you leave, hide important things in hard to find places. like under a lamp with a wide bottom or behind a picture frame. However if you have a hard time remembering, write it down on a piece of paper and carry in your purse or wallet. If you don’t like the hiding idea put them in a small travel safe and put it in your baggage and put it in the hotel or motel room lock up to keep you valuables safe.
When you arrive in a new city, town, or country, the number one thing people want to do is go shopping, especially the women. So when you go shopping take only a little bit of your money that you want to spend, and space out your shopping throughout your vacation. so if something is stolen it’s not all your money. In some countries you’re going to need to carry your passport, and always carry iit n a place were you will notice it being removed. The most important thing to keep in mind is that your in a hostel, but don’t let it ruin your fun on your trip. Just be careful about what you say to people about your personal information like where your room is in your hotel or how many people are with you, because if they think you’re traveling in numbers they’ll think twice. And remember – Be nice and kind of people’s space and things.
Even though you are staying in a hostel, it doesn’t mean staying in your hotel all your vacation. Just be sure to be aware and alert, and to let someone know were your going. Travel in places were there are lots of tourists and stores. It’s all ways best to go with someone.
