Traveling may be at the top of everyone’s lists of things to do, but it is important to stay safe while traveling! Below are safety tips to follow when traveling to help ensure you and whomever you may be traveling with stay safe throughout their travels as well: Make sure someone knows your plans: This is very important in case something were to happen. Share your itinerary with a friend or family member. Although they do not need to know everything last thing you plan on doing, they should do what time you left point A or when you are supposed to be in point B. If you are in any kind of danger, having someone that knows your plans can make a huge difference. Scan & copy your important documents: Don’t leave home without extra copies of your driver’s license/passport. Keep these documents in a separate place from your actual documents in case something gets misplaced or stolen. Additionally, you can even photograph or scan these important items and store them somewhere online such as a dropbox file or a Google drive account where they can be accessed easily online.
