Travel SOS: Gadgets to keep you safe when travelling

Being mugged or ripped off can turn any dream holiday into your worst nightmare.

Gadgets to make travel safer

When you’re walking around your home city, it’s often not too difficult to tell the locals from the tourists. When you’re walking around a foreign city, chances are that the locals there think the same of you. 

Standing out like that makes you a prime target for thieves and scammers. Being mugged, scammed, robbed or ripped off can turn any dream holiday into your worst nightmare.  

Today we feature five travel gadgets that can help save you from such insidious occasions and keep your holiday safe and secure. 

Anti-theft bag
One of the best travel accessories I’ve ever bought was my anti-theft travel bag. It’s got radio-frequency identification (RFID) protection, cut-proof material and straps, external and internal pockets aplenty (as well as a few cheeky hidden stash spots) and is quite inconspicuous. Anti-theft travel bags and wallets make it nigh on impossible for identity thieves to scan your cards; and when wearing it across your body, will keep your cash, cards, passport, phone and camera easily accessible and secure.

    Apart from all those important anti-theft articles, the single most import trick to remember (and do!) is to keep cash in 2 or 3 separate places (bags), keep passport(s) in a separate safe wallet, and keep credit cards in another separate wallet. This prevents you losing everything in the event that your anti-theft bag is stolen... as happened to my travel companion last year - she lost cash, credit cards and passport in one swoop.
