Note: We actually wrote these travel safety tips for couples before we heard about the tragic killing of the solo female traveller Sarai Sierra in Turkey. Our travel safety tips can also be used by solo female travellers and males.

This post is a follow up to our previous article: Travel Safety Tips for Couples, Before you Travel.

We felt obliged to write about travel safety because we get asked a lot of questions regarding travel safety. We travelled to Egypt over a year ago and still get asked “is Egypt safe to travel to?”

Egypt Pyramids of Giza

Of course travel in Egypt is safe

We basically consider that everywhere in the world is safe to travel to, as long as you are sensible and take precautions. It is like I said in our previous post, you don’t want to listen to everything others say, especially the media.

The world is NOT dangerous or unsafe. Sure there are dangerous people and destinations, but they are a really small percentage of the world.

And most of the unfortunate bad experiences that happen to travellers arise from them being stupid, drunk or just in the wrong place at the wrong time. By using a few simple travel safety tips, you can cut down your risks.

Travel Safety Tips for Couples

After 3 years of travel we haven’t had anything stolen and have NEVER felt unsafe because we follow our basic travel safety tips for couples, and solo travellers.

Travel Safety Tips: Blend in

One of the keys to travel safety is to limit drawing attention to yourself.

The closer you resemble a tourist, or more specifically the less you resemble other tourists, the better it is for you. Wearing sandals with white socks or sneakers with a large camera dangling from your neck is kind of a giveaway.

Similarly if you are waving around a map you may be targeted.

Basically, don’t look like me.

Travel Safety Tips: Dressing appropriately

Once you have stopped acting like a tourist you want to dress appropriately.

By leaving your valuables at home you should be carrying less stuff as you explore the streets. Everything you carry should be able to fit into your pockets or be within your bubble of “personal space”. Any time someone gets within that bubble you know to keep an eye on things.

There are always situations where this is unavoidable such as tightly packed public transport or local markets. To reduce your risk and avoid being pick-pocketed you want to keep your wallet in your front pocket, preferably buttoned up. Or use the inside pocket of your zipped up jacket.

You might also want to consider buying a “money belt” (examples here) that wrap around your waist underneath your shirt.

Finally, if you are a travelling couple ensure that you both carry your money and that it is not all in the same place. By spreading it out you won’t lose it all if one is stolen or lost.

Travel Safety Tips: Gather your gear

On arrival, or departure you are most likely to lose something.

At the airport you are tired from travelling and rush through customs eager to go exploring. Simply stuffing your wallet or passport at the top of your bag or in your back pocket is not good enough.

Use a money belt or secret compartment in your luggage to store valuable items.

It’s the same situation in a restaurant, accommodation or at an attraction. Take a moment to stop, gather yourself, and your belongings. As you walk away check behind you to see that you didn’t leave anything behind. I always do a quick “pat down” to check my camera, wallet, phone etc are in the right places.

If you know where everything should be then it becomes very easy to make this a simple routine ritual.

Travel Safety Tips: Don’t leave it unattended

We see this all the time. Someone sits down at a cafe and promptly ignores their bag or coat because they feel safe.

Always keep your items in your line of sight and within that personal bubble of space. It isn’t hard for someone to wander by and take something from your chair, or table, when you are distracted by delicious pastries and coffee.

Travel Safety Tips: Stay Alert

Before leaving your accommodation ask the staff if there is anywhere in the city they recommend not going. While you don’t necessarily want to stick to the boring tourist trails, you also don’t want to end up in seedy areas.

It is easy to unwittingly wander up the wrong street when you are gazing at all the sights. Just retrace your steps (guys are a little better at this than girls for some reason) and carry on your way.

The important thing is that you see what is going on around you. Take notice of what strangers are doing because it’s common practice for thieves to work together.

Kids with signs may try to distract you while the others pickpocket you. Or women will beg for money while pushing a crying infant in your face. While we feel bad doing it, we always just ignore them and keep walking. Once you stop, you become a sitting duck.

Our only rule is that if someone outright robs you then NEVER FIGHT BACK. Insurance will cover anything stolen and it is better than getting injured or worse.

Travel Safety Tips: Lock your luggage

While you should travel with minimal stuff, anything you leave in your accommodation should be locked away. Most hotels and hostels provide safes or lockers.

Our small padlocks probably wouldn’t stop a determined thief, but it will make them think twice and/or slow them down. Stealing your stuff is all about speed, so most won’t take that risk.

Travel Safety Tips: Walk away from confrontations

Everyone has been in a situation where someone upsets you or makes you angry. They might have accidentally bumped you or tried to chat up your girlfriend. Some ridiculous people might just be looking for a fight.

Unless you are Chuck Norris, walk away calmly. You never know who that person might be associated with. If they follow you then stick to public areas and find a local spot to ask for assistance.

And by no means are we telling you to avoid people. Meeting people is a main reason to travel!

Travel Safety Tips: Know your way out

Memorising maps and routes comes naturally to me but there are still many times I have gotten lost while wandering small streets in Italy, Egypt and Turkey.

Besalu Village Alleyways

Familiarising yourself with local landmarks as you wander around the streets of a foreign city can be very helpful for when you do take that eventual wrong turn.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you have taken the time to learn a little bit of the local language then someone will be willing to help you out. Our favourite experiences have been after we have gotten lost then shown where to go by a friendly local.

Travel Safety Tips: Don’t try this on holiday

While we love to step outside our comfort zones, we don’t take unnecessary risks. Especially when something looks a little dodgy.

There are way to many stories of travellers getting injured, or killed, while taking part in something life threatening. Sure we have run with bulls, driven scooters in Italy and scuba-dived in Egypt. But we consider these calculated risks. And we had great travel insurance.

Running with the Bulls Pamplona

If you want to take part in adventure travel activities then always check that the operators have legal qualifications and a good safety record too. The cheapest option is usually that price for a reason.

Travel Safety Tips Summary

No we are not trying to scare you away from travelling. We just know from experience that people seem to go on holiday without their brains. By showing you examples of worst-case scenarios we hope that we can limit your risks.

Travelling is safe when you reduce your risks and take precautions.

The important thing to remember is that if you do suffer a loss or a problem, don’t let that ruin your trip!

    Not sure I agree with you on the luggage locks thing, Cole, but blending in is definitely important.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 18, 2013 at 5:41 PM

      Why don’t you agree with me on the luggage locks? Do you mean because you think it draws attention to your bags indicating that there might be something valuable within? Agree on that part, but when you are out of your room then I think you should lock up 😀

    • Matthew Karsten

      February 21, 2013 at 8:03 AM

      I’m currious why too Theodora. Locks are especially important for insurance reasons. If a guesthouse/hotel employee goes into your room, steals something out of your unlocked back, there is no proof of it, and you’ll have a hard time with some insurance companies.

      At least if there is a lock, there will be some kind of damage to your bag from them breaking into it — and will be a breeze to get it replaced with insurance.

      A lock is a huge deterrent for most would-be thieves. A lot of theft is opportunistic, not done by professionals — regular people who were tempted by an easy opportunity. I lock by backpack even though anyone with a knife could get in no problem. It keeps the non-professionals out though.

      • Cole Burmester

        February 21, 2013 at 8:48 AM

        Completely agree 100% Matthew! Like I said in the post and as you mentioned, when you make it easy for them they will target you. A few simple travel saftey precautions go a long way.

    Wait… you’re telling me my white sock / sandal approach isn’t the foolproof local disguise I had always thought it to be? Dang!

    • Cole Burmester

      February 18, 2013 at 5:38 PM

      Only if you are travelling in North America should you wear the white sock / sandal attire 😉

    • Cat of Sunshine and Siestas

      February 18, 2013 at 11:23 PM

      I respect this comment as a North American!!! I live in Southern Spain, and when it’s 60 degrees out here, even the dogs are out in sweaters, but the Americans have on flip flops and short sleeves! Brrr!

      • Cole Burmester

        February 19, 2013 at 8:33 AM

        Haha it was a bit tongue in cheek of course as we LOVE Americans from our time spent travelling there 😉 They are just a little bit easier to stereotype (in a fun way)!

  3. Karen @ Trans-Americas Journey

    February 18, 2013 at 4:45 PM

    We agree that an effective overall goal should be to become the most difficult target in town – us the lockers, use locks, keep your eyes open, etc and any thieves shopping for a target will move on to the rube with cash hanging out of his pants and his head in the stars. Remember, thieves are basically lazy. That’s why they’re thieves.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 18, 2013 at 5:44 PM

      Totally agree Karen. Like the point about becoming the most difficult target! Even by making it a little bit more difficult for a thief, you are probably harder than most other tourists so they will move on.

    I love to travel with my wife a lot. I’ve never considered such type of travel safety tips before, but I’m thankful to you for giving chance to learn such effective tips. To have a safe traveling I’ll definitely follow these tips. Thanks very much. 😀

    • Cole Burmester

      February 18, 2013 at 5:38 PM

      Good to hear that you will follow them 😉 Enjoy your travels!

  5. Raymond @ Man On The Lam

    February 18, 2013 at 5:17 PM

    Most of these apply to solo travellers too! You should add “Stay away from bars/nightclubs” to your list too (although that would cut down on a lot of fun.) 🙂

    • Cole Burmester

      February 18, 2013 at 5:37 PM

      Definitely don’t stay away from bars and nightclubs, unless you want to save money 😉

  6. Bethaney - Flashpacker Family

    Blending in and not looking or acting like a naive confused tourist is key. I go as far as to tell people who approach me on the street (touts, scammers etc) that it’s not my first time in a city, in fact, I’ve been here three times before. That usually makes them shy away from ripping me off.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 19, 2013 at 8:31 AM

      Good point about telling them that it is not your first time. That is why it is also useful learning a little of language before you get there as well. Then the shock on their face when you tell them “no thanks” in their language is priceless and they walk off!

  7. Elle Williams

    February 18, 2013 at 11:19 PM

    I’m not sure I agree with the “ask them where you shouldn’t go” – you often find that people who live in a city are much more judgemental about places than you would ever be. In Sydney we stayed in an awesome hotel in the red light district over new year – people told us not to, that it would be unsafe and that it wasn’t a nice part of the city centre – but we went anyway and had an awesome time. The nightlife was actually comforting – as it meant we could come back late at night and not worry about being on our own on a street. All the kebab shops and bars actually made it feel safer at night time! 🙂

    Sure, if there is an area that is dangerous that’s a bit different – but sometimes the “bad neighbourhoods” get a bad rep just because some locals and tour book writers wouldn’t live there. The east end of London is a bit like that – when actually – if you go there you find Brick Lane, Vintage markets and quirky shops and nightlife. As a tourist in London though – people would warn you off the east end.

    Aside from that though – great article! Thanks for writing! I’m gonna take a look at some of these body bags you hide under your clothes… perfect for avoiding that panic when you think you’ve lost something!

      Definitely a good point Elle! I guess my point was that you shouldn’t just rely on one persons advice either. Everyone has had bad experiences, even in the nicest places in the world. So ask a few different locals opinions and hopefully you can sort through the good and bad spots 😉

    Great tips. I find it amazing how so many people think that travelling is the best excuse to get plastered drunk and wander around strange cities at night! – it is that sort of attitude which gets people hurt. Responsible tourists rarely have issues.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 19, 2013 at 8:34 AM

      I always find that we drink a lot less when we are travelling. I can’t stand waking up somewhere with a hangover and then missing out on seeing everything because I just want to sleep! We see so many people stumble into Hostels at 5am and don’t leave bed until the evening. Ridiculous!

  9. TammyOnTheMove

    February 19, 2013 at 4:01 AM

    Some great tips there. Blending in can sometimes be difficult. I am tall, pale and blond, so will always stick out in South America or Asia. One tip for the ladies, always wear your handbacg across your chest (not just on one shoulder) and hold onto it. Someone on a moped tried to rip my handbag off me in Cambodia once, but because I held on to it with my hands as well, he never got it. Only the string. Oh and he nearly fell off his bike too. 🙂

    • Cole Burmester

      February 19, 2013 at 8:36 AM

      Lucky that you managed to keep hold of your handbag! Well done 🙂 The only problem is that sometimes if you have it over your chest as well they might still try to rip it off and you might get injured. But still a good point! Better just to carry less stuff in my opinion 😉

  10. Jeremy Branham

    February 19, 2013 at 6:19 AM

    Very good list of tips. Happy to say I follow most of them. For me, I think #1 is huge. It’s a personal thing but I hate looking like a tourist. For me, it’s more than just a safety thing.

    A lot of this stuff is common sense for most of us who travel. However, they are very good reminders for all travelers. However, I’ve never been in a fight in my life. I definitely don’t plan on starting one when traveling 🙂

    • Cole Burmester

      February 19, 2013 at 8:38 AM

      I am pretty sure I would get my ass kicked in any fights so always steer clear as well! Had a few misunderstandings with locals before, but usually only because they have been too drunk and their friends have sorted them out quickly 🙂

  11. Jennifer

    February 19, 2013 at 8:35 AM

    Good tips! I would add that you should have a place that you both agree to meet at if you get separated for some reason.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 19, 2013 at 9:31 AM

      Excellent point! We always do that when travelling on public transport because we have had a few close calls with people nearly getting left behind on train platforms etc haha.

  12. Jonathan Look, Jr.

    February 19, 2013 at 8:56 AM

    Great advice! Also I might add, when it comes to safety, make it a habit. Avoid those panic moments where you wonder if you locked up of have your money-belt.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 19, 2013 at 9:32 AM

      Exactly Jonathan! As soon as it becomes a natural habit it is very easy to stay safe while travelling. 😀

    Yes, the world is NOT a scary, dangerous place! The “don’t look like a tourist” thing isn’t always to achieve, but I do my best to dress respectfully. I think in certain parts of the world, no amount of dressing like the locals will make me blend in, but I always cringed seeing backpackers in Laos walking around in short-shorts and bikini tops.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 19, 2013 at 7:46 PM

      Dressing respectfully is definitely one of the main ways to not draw attention to yourself. I couldn’t stand it when we were in Egypt and Morocco where tourists were dressing inappropriately too! Not hard to wear a light long sleeve top and cotton pants, even if it is hot.

  14. Larissa

    February 19, 2013 at 3:51 PM

    A great summary Cole. When we returned from our RTW people would ask us if we there was anywhere in the world we felt threatened or unsafe. After thinking for a moment, our response was “No-because we made it a point to always be AWARE”.

    On the subject of fitting in, my husband like to pick up a newspaper in the local language and walk around with it tucked under his arm. If a tourist comes up and asks him for directions, he considers himself to have “arrived”. 😉

    • Cole Burmester

      February 19, 2013 at 7:47 PM

      We are the same Larissa. We have never felt unsafe, but maybe that is because we take these precautions too. I know it does come down to a little bit of luck too. Also, the tip about carrying around a local newspaper is a great idea! Definitely using that next time 😀

  15. Fahmi

    February 20, 2013 at 3:59 AM

    Stay alert is the best way to keep safe when you travel, as for the map stuff? how can you not travel without map? i use maps a lot when traveling to new place, especially using Google Map on my phone 🙂

    • Cole Burmester

      February 20, 2013 at 8:34 AM

      We use maps as well, we just try not to wave them around in public because then you definitely don’t blend in 😉

  16. Mary - Green Global Travel

    Great practical travel tips. I think you advice is useful for when you’re in your hometown as well as when you travel.

    • Cole Burmester

      The travel safety tips can definitely be applied to all situations and taking precautions never hurt anyone! 🙂

    Safe travels!!

    Ahhh this blog is so inspiring! How do you guys do it? My husband and I are a newly wed couple and we’ve always wanted to travel but work responsibilities keep tying us down.

    Will definitely be back reading your adventures for sure!

      March 18, 2013 at 9:17 AM

      It has been a really long and hard road to get to where we are now but you just have to stick at it! Good luck.

    Good post. Mostly common sense advice, which is awesome.
    Of course travel in Egypt is safe. A few exceptions would include urban areas, the Sinai peninsula, avoid crowds in Cairo, Alexandria, etc. Luxor is to be avoided at this time…. Egypt, despite of all normal concerns can be enjoyable nonetheless. One must do his/her homework!!!

    Good advice – although I still think I’ll avoid running with the bulls. When I’m in a new city I check to see if they have a free walking tour. Good way to get an introduction to the city and to meet a local. They usually have great advice about areas to avoid in their city if there are any. Happy travels!

  21. Katie Featherstone

    March 22, 2015 at 11:58 PM

    Great advice- it’s mostly common sense, but I feel like most of the times travellers have problems it’ when they let their guard down. Walking away from confrontations is a very good point. You’ll never see them again, so it doesn’t matter if you loose an argument or whatever people think of you as long as you’re safe!

Travel Tips

A Trip To Qatar In 2022

Published

on

Qatar Financial Centre

While although international travel is not on the agenda in this current climate, one would hope that the world will return to a sense of normal by 2022 and if it does, it means football’s biggest party will be sending out its invites.

A party that will be hosted in the Middle Eastern nation of Qatar and although FIFA’s decision may have initially raised some eyebrows, there’s no doubt that plans for such large festivities are being anticipated all over the globe.

It is the first time that the crown jewel of world football has been staged in the Middle East and although that adds an element of pressure to the Qatari organisers, they are ready to put on one gargantuan show.

Of course, the show needs its headline names and with 32 teams earning qualification for the tournament over the next couple of years, the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Lionel Messi will be ready to display their talents on the biggest stage of all.

Even though we are still two years removed from the first game of the tournament, the bookmakers are still taking bets on the eventual winner and at present, France and Brazil are topping the odds to get another cup at Qatar 2022.

France will certainly be considered as favourites and after success in Russia back in 2018, Paris Saint-Germain’s Mbappe will be ready to lead his side to back to back trophies and a third overall title for the country after previous jubilation in 1998.

With that said, a lot can change between now and November 2022, as form and fitness will dictate who will be able to mount a serious challenge and who will end up being left behind as nothing more than an also-ran.

When it comes to who wins the competition, that is not something we will know for quite a while and although the start of proceedings seem still a long way away, that should not stop you from making your own travel plans.

Even though Qatar has a relatively small landmass when compared to previous host nations, it is still ready to open its arms to football fans in all corners of planet Earth and with 80 countries enjoying the ability to travel visa-free, that will be one less headache for you to worry about.

While when it comes to headaches, alcohol is still something of a sensitive issue within Qatar and although it is largely forbidden in day to day life, there will be the usual fan parks in place, in order for you to enjoy a beer or two.

In addition to that and if you are not in the vicinity of a fan park, you will be able to celebrate or commiserate with a beer in any of the licensed hotels or restaurants, but do check if such venues are in possession of the necessary license before booking.

Much has been made of the weather and with that in mind, you may want to swap the alcohol for water and keep the hydration levels at their maximum, especially when you consider the expected temperatures of 24 degrees Celsius.

The weather may be conducive to wearing less clothes than back home, but if making the trip to Qatar do please consider the local customs when it comes to clothing and for men, a pair of knee length shorts should be sufficient to keep the heat at bay and keep you comfortable.

By comparison and for the female of the species, a little more caution may be required and therefore the advice is, to dress modestly in public – a remit which advises against showing your shoulders or wearing a short skirt.

Before the tournament begins, nine stadiums will be newly created and three will be renovated, which means the seven host cities of Al-Daayen, Al-Khor, Al-Rayyan, Al-Shamal, Al-Wakrah, Doha and Umm Slal will be ready to host the 64 scheduled fixtures.

With this advice, all you need to do is book your flights and with the likes of British Airways, Qatar Airways, Iberia, Sri Lankan Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Japan Airlines, Air India, Jet Airways operating in the area, there is nothing from stopping you joining the party in 2022.

Travel Tips

Consider alternative airlines when booking your next trip

Published

on

Whether you are a devoted Muslim wanting to finally make your Hajj, or just a tourist to Arabia and the Middle East who wants to get around cheaply, it’s important to not waste money needlessly on airlines.

Thankfully, competition has been heating up in the region for some years now. Lower cost airlines have been springing up all over the region over the past several years, and this benefits us, the consumers, immensely.

Choosing the Right Service

Finding the right airline to choose can be confusing. Now, more than ever, people need a way to source all of the airlines to find the best way to travel. Many with low budgets have found great ways to save. Spicejet tickets allow you to book the best flights with the best airlines.

The power of secondary airports

Flyadeal, the people behind the portal in the above section, aren’t just a portal, they are an airline. The great thing about this airline is that they have a hub in a secondary city (Jeddah).

This is one of the secrets to saving money, if you can avoid the major airports, you usually avoid a lot of taxes and extra charges that wind up getting built into your tickets.

Secondary airports are often very close to major airports, sometimes surprisingly so. Finishing the last couple of hours of your trip by land can lead to major savings at the end of the day because of this.

Airlines are desperate right now

It’s no secret to anybody that 2020 has been a real rough year for airlines. Many of them seem to be even raising their prices, but ultimately, it’s the consumer who determines the price of something, not the provider.  Don’t panic if you start seeing high prices everywhere. Keep looking for alternatives and waiting. Outside of the immediate short term, the trend is going to be for the cost of travel to fall sharply, and this applies all over the world.

Established airlines may take more time than the newer more competitive airlines to get on board with pricing that’s going to be acceptable to consumers. That’s exactly why you need to use a good portal as a starting point, one that works with an increasingly large network of low-cost airlines.

Being adventurous will pay off in more ways than one. Cheap air tickets should be a more normal occurence in the future due to a slight decrease in demand. However, over time this will all even out but for now you can enjoy your economical tickets.

And to top it off, you will have the run of places that are normally jam-packed with tourists and visitors. It will definitely pay off in spades to do some due diligence now and be on top of things. And that definitely starts with getting your alternative airline game on.

Travel Tips

A Saudi low-cost airline English speakers may not be aware of

Published

on

Probably one of the hottest evergreen topics for a travel blog is and always is going to be how to get cheap air tickets to somewhere.

It’s true that there is no such thing as a permanent air travel hack, and also will probably always be true. People figure things out, and some months later the whole panorama has changed and their “great travel hack” is now just something that gives them the going rate.

However, maybe for this same reason, it’s more important than ever to keep on top of current trends. Things change, and we just come out with a new article informing you!

A new option for low cost flights based out of Saudi Arabia

فلاي أديل, known in English as Flyadeal or Fly Adele, is a new offering for those of us looking to get around the region and around the world quickly and, most importantly, cheaply.

The airline is based out of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and since it operates mostly on a hub model, many of the flights you book for them are based out of there. It only has three years in the market, and is very unfamiliar with English speakers and Westerners in general, so we feel that this is a very timely article. The airline is also making a big push in 2020 to globalize more and get customers from all over.

Great deals in the region

حجز طيران are something that have been on the scene since decades ago in some markets. However, in the part of the world, where Flyadeal is operating, it’s still a novelty. We think it’s about time that someone gave the big established airlines some decent competition. It’s high time that the market get this kind of a dynamic, and it bodes very well for the future.

Many low-cost airlines (think JetBlue, for example), wind up with pricing close to and even above median pricing, especially as they gain a positive reputation. We are hoping that Flyadeal can maintain their competitive pricing as their reputation hopefully continues to grow. In the end, only time can tell what would happen.

Facts to remember about using Flyadeal

-You can access flights with this airline on many other travel-related sites. However, generally the best deals will be found going directly to their website.

-Keep in mind that Jeddah is the hub of this airline. You can use this fact and play around it to get the best deals on flights.

-Keep in mind the destinations this airline serves directly. You can often find something close to where you want to go and complete your trip by land for big savings.
