2. Be Secure In Your Accommodation.
Book and check in using only your first initial and surname – no title (Miss, Ms or Mrs). As often as possible, try to book your accommodation prior to arrival, especially if you’re due to arrive at your destination at night. If you’re travelling alone, try to avoid accommodation where entrances are in back streets or isolated locations. If you can’t tell from a map, online reviews from other travellers will often give you an indication of entrances. Where possible, avoid taking a room on the ground floor. If you judge that your accommodation is secure and provides a safe, lock your valuables in the safe. Otherwise, use a money belt for your passport and other valuables, and spread your cash between your money belt, pockets and bag.
