A PRIME Insurance Special Travel Alert
With international terrorism becoming more widespread, the US State Department has cautioned Americans who travel about safety measures.
13 Precautions for the US Traveler
- Make plane reservations on non-stop flights. If this is not an option, steer clear of stopovers known for terror risks.
- Prior to your trip, purchase a good travel insurance policy that will compensate you should the unexpected occur – from the regular stuff to medical emergency assistance.
- Dress inconspicuously.
- Do not place bright personal markings on any piece of luggage. This only makes you stand out as a tourist.
- Following arrival time and luggage collection, leave the airport immediately.
- Practice vigilance at all times. If you see something or someone suspicious, notify police.
- Travel only with a clearly marked car service vehicle. Check to see if the driver is the same person depicted on his displayed license picture.
- Never give a detailed account of your itinerary to the car service driver or any other stranger.
- Take necessary precautions to avoid others eavesdropping on any dialogue you have with someone else.
- Do not open your hotel door before verifying you recognize the person who knocked.
- Do not accept any package that you know nothing about.
- Inspect your rental car prior to driving to ensure it is in sound driving condition and has not been tampered with.
- Lock car doors and windows when driving in slower traffic.
