- Stay safe
Without a friend by your side to watch your back, you are more vulnerable to criminals and scam artists, as well as simple health worries. Be your own best counsel. Trust your intuition, if something doesn’t feel right, don’t do go there.
Always carry with yourself a good identification ID and go out to publish places, avoid spending a lot of time at secluded small locations.

- Plan in advance
Do some advance planning. You donâ€™t need a detailed plan but you should know, for the first night at least, where youâ€™re going to stay. Book your hostel/hotel before you leave. Always carry with you a map of the city and don`t forget to charge your cell phone.
- Join organized tours
Break up long trips with organized tours. Youâ€™ll enjoy the company of other travelers even for a few hours and a chance to let someone else take care of all the details.
- Keep your important items in one place
Always keep your most important items in the same place and check it several times a day. Â Check your passport, wallet, camera and phone. Also scan your driverâ€™s license, passport, and health card and email them to yourself and a friend or family member. If you lose your passport, it makes getting a new one much easier.
