Safety Tips

  1. Research and Planning: As simple as it sounds, many travellers fail woefully in this regard – by underestimating the importance of proper research and planning. As a traveller or a potential one, you must research your destination extensively and have a well-thought-out itinerary. It will help you understand the local culture, local laws, customs, and any potential safety concerns of your chosen destination. 
  2. Pack Light: Pack light, and you will never go blight! When you travel light, you become more mobile, less exhausted and less vulnerable. You’ll be able to move lighter and faster if needed and won’t stand out as a target for theft. Say you find yourself in the bustling markets of Marrakesh, having a lightweight backpack allows you to navigate the narrow alleyways and crowded souks with ease. It also means you can swiftly adapt to unexpected situations, like moving through a crowded medina or hopping onto a local bus.
  3. Stay Connected: Imagine trekking in the Swiss Alps, miles from civilisation. With a portable Wi-Fi device, you can check weather updates, communicate with friends and family, and call for help if needed. Staying connected provides peace of mind, especially in remote areas.
  4. Trust Your Gut: While exploring vibrant streets, you may encounter various street performers and characters. If someone’s behaviour seems odd or unsettling, don’t hesitate to change your route or distance yourself. Your instincts are your first line of defence in unfamiliar environments. So, trust your gut feelings!
  5. Local Dress Code: Dressing appropriately to celebrate the local culture shows your level of respect and cultural sensitivity. Take Dubai for instance, when visiting the Grand Mosque, you will be respecting the local customs by wearing an abaya and covering your head. Not only will this demonstrate cultural sensitivity, but it will also help you blend in and avoid any unwanted attention.
  6. Accommodation: Selecting reliable accommodations with good reviews and security measures is an absolute must. It’s even better when you employ a tool like QVI Vacay to do this. Booking through QVI Vacay not only offers travel benefits such as redeemable nights, special rates, VIP discounts, coupons and year-end rewards but also provides access to a diverse selection of accommodations featuring social spaces for connecting with fellow travellers, sharing experiences, and forging new friendships.
