• Keep your travel plans, including accommodation details, to yourself.
  • Don’t hitch hike.
  • Try not to travel at night.
  • Avoid ‘seedier’ areas of the cities you visit, especially at night.
  • Ask your hotel manager for advice on ‘safe’ versus ‘unsafe’ local areas.
  • As a general rule, city streets that include children and women suggest the area is safe for families.
  • Carry with you at all times the contact details of the Australian embassy. If your city doesn’t have an Australian embassy, find out which other country’s embassy is available to help you, such as the British embassy.
  • Keep a photocopy of your passport and all other important documents in a safe place. 
  • Use ATMs during the day, when there are people around.
  • Try to rely more on credit cards and travellers cheques than cash.
  • If you are mugged, don’t fight back. It is better to lose a few dollars and a wristwatch than get injured.
  • Avoid incidents such as fights, riots or civil disturbances at all times.
