Safe Travel Tips

  • Travel light. Fewer luggage is more comfort.
  • Familiarize yourself with train and bus schedules before traveling. Have an alternate plan in case change is inevitable.
  • Keep an eye on your luggage. Fasten the luggage with immovable item/hook provided in train/bus with the help of a chain and lock it.
  • Keep a photocopy of important documents, a small flashlight, a first aid kit, an address book, etc.
  • Carry medicines if any with prescription.
  • Don’t expose yourself with rich appearance.
  • Never show money in public.
  • Beware of pickpockets.
  • Don’t travel alone in areas where crime is high.
  • Don’t encourage beggars.
  • Don’t accept any food or drink from a stranger or from a co-passenger.
  • Protect your packed food, drinking water etc. Some one may mix tranquilizer, lift your valuables and may run away when you sleep.
  • Frequently alter your schedule; don’t travel from one place to another at a fixed time everyday.
  • Do not discuss travel plans, your room number or any other personal information in public within earshot of strangers.
  • Have enough changes in small denominations /coins so as to ease transactions while clearing taxi bills etc.
