Know how to access your government’s help in case of an emergency. Most countries have specific sites where you can register your travels and learn how to get help when traveling. If you used a Travel Agent, ask them to make sure this is done for you.
Pre-program your phone with your personal emergency contact number, accommodation phone number, your government’s consulate office and the local emergency number. Leave a copy of your travel itinerary with someone you trust or give them your Travel Agents contact information if an emergency arises so they can reach you while you are traveling.
Safety is important, but have fun too!
