Be familiar with your itinerary before traveling. Leave a copy of your itinerary information at home for family in the event of an emergency. Make a copy of all personal information including Picture ID, Credit Cards and Passports (take copies with you) and avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
Always make sure to lock your hotel door. Do not leave valuables in your room and look through the peep-hole before opening door. Familiarize self with emergency exits and stairwells and do not overcrowd elevators.
