Travel safety

2015-01-28 00:00:00

Authorities emphasize the importance of taking precautions to ensure travel safety.[8] When traveling abroad, the odds favor a safe and incident-free trip, however, travelers can be subject to difficulties, crime and violence.[9] Some safety considerations include being aware of one's surroundings,[8] avoiding being the target of a crime,[8] leaving copies of one's passport and itinerary information with trusted people,[8]obtaining medical insurance valid in the country being visited[8] and registering with one's national embassy when arriving in a foreign country.[8] Many countries do not recognize drivers' licenses from other countries; however most countries accept international driving permits.[10] Automobile insurance policies issued in one's own country are often invalid in foreign countries, and it's often a requirement to obtain temporary auto insurance valid in the country being visited.[10] It is also advisable to become oriented with the driving-rules and -regulations of destination countries.[10] Wearing a seat belt is highly advisable for safety reasons; many countries have penalties for violatingseatbelt laws.[10]

There are three main statistics which may be used to compare the safety of various forms of travel (based on a DETR survey in October 2000):[11]
