Here are some of our top tips for staying safe while travelling overseas:
Arriving in a foreign country: We recommend that you organise an airport arrival transfer in advance. You may arrive in a foreign city late at night and you may be tired and jet-lagged. Therefore, it is much safer (particularly if you have not been to that country recently) to have someone reputable meet you and transfer you to your pre-booked accommodation.
Documents and items to take in your hand luggage: Take recent copies of your resume, flight tickets, travel insurance, passport and some spare passport-sized photos with you. Carry some USD cash with you – it is internationally recognised and readily accepted. Wear a money belt for your cash, card and travel documents. No need to take valuable jewellery on your placement – store it safely at home. Carry your medications and a personal first aid kit in your hand luggage. I always pack an empty water bottle in my hand luggage and then refill it regularly on the plane. Read about the country that you are visiting and learn some of the local language.
