Part one, “Before You Travel”, of our two part Travel Safety Tips for Couples series. Read our tips to minimise your risks on your next travel adventure.

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 last week. Our travel safety tips can be used for solo female travellers (and males) as well as travelling couples.

We get asked a lot of questions regarding travel safety tips for couples because we like stepping outside of our comfort zones. That is not to say that we put ourselves in harms way, we aren’t that stupid. But we travel with open minds rather than being shrouded in fear.

If we heeded everyone’s advice we wouldn’t have enjoyed this mint tea in a local Egyptian market.

6 travel safety tips for couples, before you travel

Don’t listen to what others, mostly the media, have to say.The world is NOT dangerous or unsafe. While there are dangerous people and destinations, they are a really small percentage of the world.

You are probably more likely to get into trouble in your home country rather than from travelling.

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. And it has happened to us. We think we travel smart and our experiences prove that. But we have also had our fair share of things go wrong while travelling.

A broken collarbone, internal bleeding, lost luggage and lost passports to name a few.

Travel Safety Tips for Couples, Broken Collarbone

But after 3 years of travel we think that is pretty good. Especially since we have yet to have anything stolen (touch wood). By using a few simple travel safety tips, we have cut down our risks.

And minimising risks doesn’t start when you begin travelling. Travel safety starts at home before you go.

By using our travel safety tips for couples, and solo travellers, you can minimse your own travel safety concerns.

Before you go: Travel Safety Tips for Couples

These are the travel safety tips you should implement before you actually leave home.

Travel Safety Tips: Do your research before you travel

The first thing you want to do is research the destination. You can quite easily find out from locals, not other tourists, the safest places in a city. Online there are local forums, websites and other travel blogs for every destination in the world.

Read it all and talk to your friends. But please don’t discount somewhere just because of one persons bad experience. Use your own common-sense to decide if you really should go or not.

No two peoples travel adventures are ever the same.

Travel Safety Tips: Buy Travel Insurance that covers everything

So far our travel injury bills after 3+ years have totalled more than $105,000.

Adela broke her collarbone, I ruptured my appendix and had internal bleeding from a snowboarding accident. Luckily our comprehensive travel insurance meant that we were fully covered for the full amounts.

Take a moment to think about what you might get up to while travelling as not all travel insurance is the same. For example, some may include snow adventures and other extreme sports, while others won’t. You can usually add on extras if you know what you what activities you might be doing.

We recommend you check out World Nomads Insurance who will cover most situations. Just be sure to read the fine print.

Travel Safety Tips: Leave your valuables behind

In most countries you should try and blend in and not advertise that you are a tourist. And more importantly, a wealthy tourist. You will likely stick out like a sore thumb anyway, but advertising it by wearing fancy jewellery or carrying an expensive camera around is best avoided.

Adela always leaves her jewellery at home but will usually end up buying something locally made. It supports them and ensures you won’t get your nicest stuff stolen, or lost.

Depending upon where you travel, you may also want to consider leaving laptops and other expensive gear at home. If it is not feasible like us, as we travel with a lot of gear to keep this travel blog running, you can usually lock gear in your room safe or behind the check-in desk.

Much better than carrying it around all day too. You might also want to consider buying a “money belt” (examples here) that wrap around your waist underneath your shirt.

Travel Safety Tips: Get vaccinated

Vaccinations can be quite tricky to organise. We recommend visiting your doctor a few months before you travel to find out what you may need to get vaccinated for.

Some vaccinations/immunisations for certain destinations will actually require you to have several injections over the course of a few months. You may also need to prove to border control that you have been immunised when you travel.

Travel Safety Tips: Scan all your major documents

The final travel safety tip is to make sure you have a copy of all your travel documents. We used to carry around a folder with photocopies of our passports, relevant visas, travel insurance etc. As well as leave copies with our families.

Now we are able to just use Dropbox to store all our important travel documents online. Extra travel tip: We also use Dropbox for storing our photos online so that we won’t ever lose them.

These online copies can then be used if we ever need to print off documents or in case we lose something important while travelling. Of course if you are trekking through remote areas it might be best to print them BEFORE you leave!

Travel Safety Tips: Notify your bank

While notifying your bank that you are going overseas won’t stop your credit cards or money getting stolen. It may stop them (hopefully) from cancelling any cards that they suspect are being used fraudulently while you still have them.

Banks monitor suspected fraudulent use and will stop a card from working if they suspect it has been used in the wrong place. It should only take one phone call to reactivate it but letting them know your travel plans never hurts.

They can also provide advice on who to contact should your cards be stolen. Which means that you should keep a record of your credit card numbers and bank phone numbers if you need to cancel them. Just don’t record the security numbers too!

    Great tips-and I’m proud to say we’ve done all of the above 🙂

    I woud also add that it’s good to check into if you’ll need malaria medication where you’re headed, and if so bring the meds with you (or possibly even start the regimen before you leave home).

    • Cole Burmester

      February 11, 2013 at 4:45 PM

      Malaria is a good point Larissa! We haven’t needed it yet so it slipped our minds for the list 🙂

  2. Steph | DiscoveringIce.com

    February 11, 2013 at 7:07 PM

    Great list…we really need to get our docs on Dropbox too!
    Another tip we use is to research and always travel with reputable bus companies, especially in countries like Colombia. It is better to pay a little extra to stay safe, plus we got stuck on a really crappy bus (that was a replacement for another one that never bothered showing up!) because we left it too late to book our tickets. Planning ahead is one of the best ways to avoid being stuck in dangerous situations too!
    Happy and safe travels!

      Great extra tips Steph! Definitely a good idea paying a little extra for transportation. I have also found that the longer we travel, the less planning I do. I guess I am happier taking chances and going with the flow now 😉

  3. Micki

    Excellent tips.

    I think that sticking to the common sense safety tips you use at home is a great starting point; things like being careful where you walk (especially at night), keeping expensive gear out of sight, and keeping your wits about you when drinking (or having someone watch out for you).

    It’s funny how many people seem to think that when they’re on vacation, and taking a break from their every day lives, that these rules somehow don’t apply any more.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 12, 2013 at 8:18 AM

      Definitely Micki! Like I said, everyone seems to forget their common sense and brains when they travel, when in reality this is when you need both. It is fine to relax, but still be cautious 🙂

    I sometimes think of traveling alone, but these kind of tragedy is stopping me, or maybe I’m just not that independent? or brave enough? Maybe flying solo isn’t for everyone.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 12, 2013 at 8:20 AM

      Hey Rachel, thanks for your comment. It is a shame that you are worried about travelling alone but you are right, it isn’t for everyone. I suggest though that you go on Twitter and search for the tag #WeGoSolo. Lots of female solo travellers writing about how safe solo travel is at the moment using that #Hashtag!

  5. Vera

    February 12, 2013 at 5:53 AM

    Good tips! I think you basically have it covered with this post, and I’m glad travel insurance made your list:) I just always try to think ahead of the worst case scenario (comes naturally…) and then try to keep the risk of it happening as small as possible, or the consequences should it happen as less impacty as possible. With that kind of mostly mental preparation I feel more in control. And nothing bad has ever happened to me *knockonwoood* but to be honest, I believe there’s a portion of good luck involved, as well, and it doesn’t matter if you’re travelling or at home when your guardian angel looks away for a second. Also, devastating stuff is always going to be devastating, and it happens at home as well. Stay safe, whereever you are:)!

    • Cole Burmester

      February 12, 2013 at 8:40 AM

      Brilliant points Vera! Mentally preparing is a good idea for any situation. Expecting that nothing will happen to you is probably a bad idea so any preparation is time well spent. And agree that there is luck involved, to a degree anyway 😉

    great tips and one which I have had yet to do even after traveling solo for sometime now. will definitely get insured 🙂 thanks for this post.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 12, 2013 at 8:41 AM

      We have had wayyyyy too many problems not to travel with insurance any more! Definitely check out World Nomads, they cover everything 🙂

    Yikes on the shoulder injury. Just reading about it sounded pretty gruesome.

    As a budget traveler (most of the time), I pack light and don’t carry many valuable things. However, I did forget to notify my bank on a trip to Europe once. What a pain!

    Another travel tip – don’t go snowboarding with you two 🙂

    • Cole Burmester

      February 12, 2013 at 6:08 PM

      Haha definitely don’t go snowboarding with us 😉 They refused to take Adela down in the ambulance until I handed over my credit card too! Crazy.

    Great tips! I am happy to say we did/do all of these for our travels. We’ve been traveling as a couple full time for almost 12 months now and I think its because we were so prepared that we haven’t run into any problems. It worries me when I hear of travelers not getting travel insurance (to save money!) and your incident just proves why its SO important!

    Thanks for the tips.. I will forward this post to a friend of ours who is just about to take off on a 12 month trip!

    • Cole Burmester

      February 12, 2013 at 6:09 PM

      When we first started travelling we hated buying insurance as we thought it was such a waste of money! Fair to say we were glad we did 😉

    Great tips guys! I get a bit blasé about keeping my electronics locked away when I’m out of my hotel room. I’m thinking I’ll need to get better about it when we travel through Central America. Maybe a pacsafe for our laptop backpack?

    • Cole Burmester

      February 13, 2013 at 7:02 AM

      We haven’t used a pacsafe ourselves, but have heard good things about them. It totally depends on where you are travelling, and while I actually don’t think Central America is any unsafer than Europe, it is probably a good idea!

  12. T.W. Anderson @ Marginal Boundaries

    February 13, 2013 at 12:32 AM

    Most important part of this: don’t trust the media when it comes to safety while traveling, or safety in other countries. This is especially true in Western countries where the media looooves to spread propaganda regarding how “dangerous” and “backwards” other countries are in comparison.

    Otherwise, good notes, especially the insurance if you plan on doing any adventure activities.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 13, 2013 at 7:03 AM

      I am sure that when you tell people that you live in Mexico they freak out and tell you that it is a drug-infested unsafe country because the news told them that! Frustrates me so much. People need to open their own eyes and ears.

  13. Cat of Sunshine and Siestas

    February 13, 2013 at 8:50 AM

    I thikn I’ve been extremely lucky when I’ve traveled, and that I’ve gotten out of sticky situations unscathed (having my room ransacked in Acapulco while I was down at the pool sticks out at the most potentially dangerous – the door was broken and the wood split!!).

    I’m now struggling with what to do with my eletronic while I walk the Camino de Santiago in August – I would love to take my reflex and Air to document it all, but the thought of carrying them and risking that they could get taken in the albergues makes me nevous (one stolen laptop this year is enough!)

    • Cole Burmester

      February 13, 2013 at 9:31 AM

      As long as you have backed up all your photos and documents before you go, and leave them at home, then I think you should be fine to take your gear with you. Of course making sure that insurance would cover them in the event they were stolen. My friend did it and said she had no problems 😉

  14. Angela

    February 13, 2013 at 1:34 PM

    While I think it’s ridiculous to fuel fear on traveling, either alone or in a group, I also believe dismissing precautions is dangerous. I’ve just been robbed in Fortaleza, Brazil, I didn’t even have my camera, just a small bag with only my keys inside. I was on the beach in the morning with other people around. I confess it scared me how easy it was for that guy just to snatch my bag off my neck. Needless to say, locals had warned me that even if I had a small bag I would have been robbed 99%, but I didn’t believe it was so dangerous. Serves me right, now I’ll sure avoid going out taking photos, either alone or with other people.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 13, 2013 at 2:12 PM

      Not quite sure if you are agreeing with our points or not Angela… But that really sucks that you just got robbed! Horrible experience and I am sure it has left a bad taste in your mouth about the area. Hope your luck changes!

    February 13, 2013 at 2:58 PM

    Thanks for the tips! We are getting ready to go on a cruise to Mexico and the Caribbean and this is the 1st time we’ve bought travel insurance. I hope we don’t need it, but we’ve got it if we do!

    • Cole Burmester

      February 13, 2013 at 7:51 PM

      Good idea getting the travel insurance. The one time you forget you will need it!

  16. Ali

    February 13, 2013 at 4:21 PM

    Male, female, couples, solo, we all need pretty much the same safety precautions. Definitely get your vaccines, though weigh the pros and cons of malaria pills and if the area you’re going to *really* has a risk for it. I try not to bring anything with me I wouldn’t mind losing, although I would be devastated to lose my camera or laptop. And good tips on scanning your documents and notifying the bank, I always do those too. Luckily I’ve never had any issues, but always worth taking that simple step to protect yourself.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 13, 2013 at 7:54 PM

      Probably one of the reasons why you have never had any issues is because you are so prepared Ali 😉

    More info about the travel medical insurance you guys have….we gave up our US insurance policy years ago because it was a waste of money that did us no good on the road. Not happy to have no coverage so let us know the name of the company you guys are covered with…

    • Cole Burmester

      February 15, 2013 at 8:50 AM

      The insurance we had while we were in North America covered everything but was organised through a company in New Zealand called IEP. They help with visas etc. We definitely recommend World Nomads now though as they will cover every situation. The link is in the post 😉 I am sure they would love to work with you guys too as you are completely unique!

  19. The Time-Crunched Traveler (Ellen)

    February 17, 2013 at 11:49 PM

    Great tips, and ones we usually follow as well! I’m surprised by how many people I come across who are afraid to travel — or who are afraid to travel outside of group tours — simply because of a few fears that could be easily addressed.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 18, 2013 at 8:40 AM

      We get asked about our safety all the time. Even for countries that basically have no risk. Most peoples own cities are probably more dangerous than the places we visit!

  20. Linda McCormick

    February 18, 2013 at 11:40 AM

    Here’s one more travel safety tip: don’t wear your passport/money pouch around your neck… on the outside of your clothes! If I had a dollar for the amount of times I’ve seen this I would be a very rich woman.

    • Cole Burmester

      February 18, 2013 at 12:08 PM

      I know! I totally don’t get why you would be a pouch if you were just going to leave it in plain sight!

    March 4, 2013 at 7:31 PM

    Some good tips here, thanks for sharing. I think travel insurance is the one most and you should always seek the best deal, not the cheapest.

    • Cole Burmester

      March 5, 2013 at 8:18 AM

      Getting the right travel insurance is definitely one of the main travel safety tips you should do before you travel. And you are totally right, cheapest is not a very good option!

  23. Suzanne

    March 8, 2013 at 6:10 AM

    The most important thing to consider is the safety prior travelling. Getting a reliable insurance is a wise step but it’s wiser to research all the details of the place where you’re heading to avoid any problems. When you are well-informed about a certain place and you get the idea on how and what to act in the instance that you’re already in that place. Blogs and travel magazines are great resources.

    • Cole Burmester

      March 8, 2013 at 9:20 AM

      Definitely agree with you Suzanne 😉 Can’t prepare enough before you travel. But you also want an openmind and lots of flexibility!

  24. Liz

    March 9, 2013 at 1:35 PM

    I would also say one of the most important things to do is READ the terms and conditions of your travel insurance. What is omitted? Can you claim for the same thing twice e.g. theft? It’s worth paying more for travel insurance if the terms and conditions are good.

    • Cole Burmester

      March 9, 2013 at 5:01 PM

      Great points Liz! You can’t be too careful with insurance, and what looksmlike a good deal couldmend up costing you more money in the long run.

5 Ways You Can Use CBD to Fight Travel Stress

Published

If you are a frequent traveler, then the term “travel stress” would be familiar to the point of being painful.

And if you are not familiar with the term, then the following description would have you stand right along with those who are.

white airplane near trailers during sunset

Travel stress could arise from frequent traveling, or even through a single flight or road trip. It often causes your mind as well as your body to feel extremely tired. It could also contribute to more serious issues such as anxiety or depression.

All in all, stress is never a good feeling to endure or live with. But it gets especially crucial to alleviate it when you experience it during your travels. Since your therapist is not available in another town and your closest friends aren’t usually with you, it falls upon you to take care of, well, you.

Thankfully, natural substances such as cannabidiol or CBD can help you in a situation where you cannot find support anywhere. As an organic compound, products from cannabidiol could go a long way into helping you alleviate stress.

To explain this further, here are 5 ways you can use cannabidiol to fight travel stress.

Have It In Desserts

Using cannabidiol products such as oil or concentrate, you could easily transform any snack into a promise of a relaxing future. You don’t even have to cook the dessert yourself. Simply order room service. Then, sprinkle the cannabidiol product over the sugary treat before enjoying it according to your liking. The natural elements in cannabidiol correspond with your brain, letting it release the necessary

Have It In a Milkshake

Who doesn’t like milkshakes? With a drink as popular as water, you could have your sugary treat in a creamy, liquid form instead. Just have a glass of milkshake to yourself and enjoy mixing your cannabidiol concentrate or oil into it. From there, it’s just you and the chilled glass of sugary goodness. Stress? Be gone!

Enjoy It In Snacks

Lugging around perishables such as brownies or milkshakes during your travel doesn’t sound like a good idea. But you can carry cannabidiol snacks in your bag easily. From lozenges to almond bites, and from candy bars to lollipops, you could find a plethora of choices in terms of cannabidiol snacks. All you need to do is to visit a regulated cannabis dispensary and place your order accordingly.

Vape It Up

Another way to enjoy cannabidiol is by enjoying it in the form of a vape juice. This makes sure that you are not subjecting yourself to psychoactive reactions. But at the same time, you could enjoy the next best thing to smoking: vaping. Vape pens and specialized cannabidiol vape juices are widely available. This makes sure that you can enjoy these products at your comfort.

Use Topical Cannabidiol Products

You don’t even have to consume cannabidiol orally to enjoy its effects. Products such as CBD oil, lotion, cream and gel are now widely available. You can simply apply these everyday items to your skin and enjoy a release of cannabidiol into your system. There’s no special preparation required. But you would still feel like you did something special to be rewarded with the relaxation and relief that follows suit.

5 Travel Necessary Items for Reducing International Flight Stress

Published

Just the thought of being at an international flight for hours is troubling in itself.

What can you do while being airborne for so long? What if you get stressed? What if you need help in alleviating your anxiety? What if you are afraid that your existing mental health issues may flare up if you don’t have a calming activity to do?

photo of plane interior

Even if you surrounded by people from your social circle, it doesn’t guarantee that you wouldn’t feel stressed during your flight. As such, you need to make sure that you are taking help from different remedies at to keep your stress in check.

Organic products such as CBD oil go a long way in keeping your stress at bay; while electronic equipment such as a music player also works wonders. To help you manage your stress levels during such a situation, here are the Top 5 necessary items to take on your next international flight.

Don’t Forget a Music Player

Music therapy is one of the best stress relievers. When listening to your favorite tunes, the world seems like a better place, and the worries often tend to swim away.

As such, bringing a device such as an iPod Touch with you is a good idea. That way, you save yourself getting disturbed by the flight staff to turn the device off or to make sure if it’s on Airplane Mode again and again.

But if you don’t have an iPod Touch or a similar device, ensure to put your phone’s Airplane Mode on anyway. And remember to inform any flight attendants about your thoughtfulness prior to the trip. This would ensure that you could enjoy your music without getting disturbed repeatedly.

Grab a Book

A good book could prove to be a doorway to another dimension even if you are locked into your airplane seat for hours. This keeps your mind busy and helps you from falling into stressful thoughts.

If you pair that up with the music suggestion, then you have a recipe for success in-progress. Just make sure that you take a book that is short and simple so you can finish it before your flight lands.

Use CBD

Using CBD oil or related products within your flight could also make you quite calm, relaxed, and stress-free. Along with other benefits, it also keeps your muscles and body relaxed as well, which makes sure that you save yourself from jet lag.

Due to this relaxed state of mind, CBD also helps you sleep better so you could rest your way through the extended hours of your flight if you choose to do so.

Get a Sleep Mask

And if you wanted to sleep through the flight to reduce stress, make sure you are in a comfortable state to do so. A soft, plush, and easy to wear sleep mask can help you achieve this objective.

You can get a sleep mask in most convenience stores. To make sure that you get one which you are most comfortable wearing, get one that is the perfect size. Also ensure that it comes in a material that suits your comfort level to wear all the time.

Utilize Cloud Storage Before You Leave

Leaving a digital document on your home’s laptop or at the office computer could induce a lot of stress. To avoid that, invest in cloud storage before you board your plane.

This would have to come a few days before your flight, backup all of your important or frequently used data to the cloud. Doing so will not only ensure that you are not stressing out during your flight, but will also go a long way into saving your documents and photos over your trip.
