• Carry only what you need. Don’t carry anything valuable like money, mobile phone, passport, laptop or
jewelry where people can see them.
• Keep your purse, wallet and keys in a different place of your bag.
• If someone does try to take your bag, don’t stop them.
• Write down your credit card and passport numbers and keep them safe in a different place to where you keep
your cards. If they are stolen, you can then report the numbers to the police and cancel your credit cards.
