Trust your gut
Lookout for odd behavior or places that make you uncomfortable.
Take only what you’ll need for the day. It’s always a good idea to travel with your ID, some cash, and some water.
Don’t rummage through your bag or count your cash in public. As much as possible, keep your purse or bag closed and secured. Keep your money out of sight, unless you’re paying for something.
Secure your belongings
To prevent theft, shorten the strap on your bag or purse so that it fits snugly under your arm and hang it across the front of your body. Avoid keeping important items in your back pant-pockets; opt for the front pockets instead.
