Hi, I am keen to hear from fellow travellers about general safety tips they use when abroad. We haven't travelled overseas in years...helpful friends have told us the things they do but it's just stressing us out! We are travelling to UK, Italy, France only.
We are packing sensibly, having small amounts of cash only, using cards as much as possible and have duplicates of all documents etc.
Upon announcing that we are going to Paris one person told us to the do the following---take old handbags containing expired cards and other items you don't care about, old makeup etc so it can be happily stolen. Meanwhile your cards, money passport are tucked into strange locations in your clothing (Can't imagine what it's like to retrieve a credit card from one's underwear in a shop!).
Any ladies out there with suggestions?
