  • Carry your passport, other travel documents and your money separately. You don't want to lose them all together.
  • Place a photocopy of your passport in each and every checked-in bag that you give at the airport. Helps in case you lose your luggage.
  • Keep extra photocopies of the relevant pages of your passport. This is needed for Indian permits.
  • If you order mineral water in a restaurant, make sure the bottle is unsealed at the table.
  • Never travel without mosquito repellents and other essential medicines.
  • It is a good idea to carry locks for your bags and suitcases. Try to keep your clothes flat and avoid carrying too many fragile goods that will be left at the mercy of careless luggage handlers.
  • Label your entire luggage and even try to carry an extra set of labels with you.
  • Carry an extra set of lock and keys, just in case.
  • It's not a good idea to travel with too much cash. Travellers' cheques are best.
  • Don't use new shoes, however comfortable they may seem.
  • Try not to store liquids in a bottle in any of your bags. If you must, seal the mouth with white hospital tape.
  • Pack empty plastic ziplock bags to separate soiled clothes from the rest, especially if you're travelling to a rainy destination.
  • Ensure that your luggage is waterproof.
  • Confirm, reconfirm, confirm once again. (Your plane/train/travelling tickets, that is)
  • If travelling in the monsoon, carry a raincoat and umbrella.
  • Make a list of all your personal medicines that you are carrying with you. Carry the list with you wherever you go.
  • Carry your own water bottle. This should be within arm's length at all times. It'll save you the problem of drinking unsafe water whenever you are thirsty.
  • Many women travellers prefer to carry a high pitched whistle that would scare away stalkers.
  • Women who are travelling alone should not admit they are travelling alone.
  • When asking for directions, ask shopkeepers, not pedestrians. Check with at least two persons or more.
  • Make a list of all the things you forgot while travelling and use the list before your next trip.
  • If you are traveling with kids make sure that they remember the name of hotel and place where you have stayed and also there home address and phone numbers. If they are not big enough to remember these things put a slip with all these information in there pocket or somewhere else like in a chain etc.
