It’s time to dispel the myth that travel safety is the same for everyone.
This isn’t a one-size-fits-all issue, and there’s no cookie-cutter solution that works 100% of the time for everyone.
Because some of us have to take some extra precautions when we travel.
First-time travelers, for instance, may need to be extra careful not to stick out like a sore thumb. If they do, they could be a magnet for scammers.
Women, LGBTQ folks, and people who need accommodation adapted for a disability can all face distinct risks too.1
And those can be pretty significant, depending on where they’re going and what they plan to do.1
But regardless of whether you’re a more vulnerable traveler or you may be vacationing with one, those risks don’t have to overshadow the rewards of getting away.
If you know some basic travel safety, you can tailor it to your needs and your trip.
And you can be proactive about protecting yourself and setting yourself up for a fabulous vacation.
P.S. How do you choose your vacation destinations? If you hit the lottery tomorrow, where are the first 3 places you’d visit around the world and why? Hit “comment” and share your thoughts with me. I’d love to hear more about how you make travel decisions and where you’d go if money were no object.
