Take special care of your passport, travel documents and tickets. Keep them with you and you should know where they are at all times. Make a note or a copy of your passport number and its date and place of issue, and pack this separately from your passport. If you lost your passport contact the police and your Embassy immediately and give them your passport details.

Do not carry large among of cash with you; bring just enough for your immediate needs. Bring a credit card, if you have one, to pay for things like rail tickets and hotel bills. If possible your cash should include some coins and some bank notes.

Carry cash credit cards and traveler’s cheque in a safe place, such as inside pocket, a money belt or a zippered handbag. Make a note of the serial numbers of your travelers’ cheques and pack this separately from the cheques themselves. If you lose your traveler’s cheques or credit card, report the loss to the police and the issuing organization immediately.

Keep the number of your college or university handy, in case you need to call for advice or to tell them about a change in your plans.

If you are going to stay in a home stay, make sure you know their telephone number and address. Just in case anything happens to you, or the pick-up service from the airport fail to meet you, at least you can phone your host to tell them your situation and they may be able to help you.

Do not bring your most valuable items with you, bring as few as possible with you and leave expensive jewelry at home. Pack your valuables in your hand luggage, not your main luggage.

Label your luggage so that it can be forwarded to you if it gets separated from you during the journey. If you do lose your luggage at any stage, report the loss immediately to officials of the airline or shipping line. At airports or seaports, check the ‘lost property office’ to see whether it has turned up.

At many major airports you can find the writings ‘do not leave your luggage unattended at any time’ which you really need to obey. If you need to leave your luggage somewhere while you change money or make telephone calls, find an official ‘left luggage’ office (available at airports and at major rail and bus stations). The attendant should give you a receipt so that you can collect your items later.

Bring a pocket- size dictionary, just in case you get lost or confuse. This happens a lot since you arrive in a new place you may get disoriented and probably nervous.

It is advisable to have a checklist with you. Write down all the things that you need to do or any information that you think you will need on a piece of paper so that you can keep track of what you need to do and what you have done and what have not done.
