2. Hold your bag firmly

Whether handbags or arm bags, travellers are urged to firmly hold their bags to avoid being easily snatched or loss of vital personal belongings.

3. Make calls as private as you can

Travellers are also urged to avoid making calls in the public. This will prevent unnecessary attraction at motor parks or airports.

4. Handle your cash transaction calls discretely

Travellers are also advised to handle transaction calls with care in order to avoid being trailed by people trying to perpetrate evils.

5. Don't accept food items or drink from strangers

In this regards, travellers are cautioned against creating unnecessary familiarity with strangers or collecting food or drinks from them.

6. Don't discuss your private life with strangers

Just like the 5th tip, travellers are urged to avoid discussing private matters with complete strangers.

This is one of the ways to protect one's privacy and avoid exposing one's life to self-sought danger.
