Travelling is such an enjoyable activity that some people tend to forget about being cautious. No matter how fun, safety is still a primary concern when someone is on a holiday at an unfamiliar place. If you don’t watch your back, you are more vulnerable to criminals and scam artists, as well as simple health worries. So before packing your bags and heading to Gold Coast for a holiday, make sure you keep these safety tips in mind:

Choose an accommodation at a non-dubious area.
Book at a reputable resort to make sure that you are safe. Ipanema Holiday Resort is a good yet cheap accommodation Gold Coast. As a traveller, you are assured that your safety is of top priority. Find out if your chosen resort is open late, so you don’t end up sleeping at the airport, at the bus station or in your car.

Research travel costs.
Know how long it takes and how much it costs to get from the airport to your hotel or to the city centre. Solo travelers are more likely to be “taken for a ride”, so ask the taxi driver how much it will cost before you leave. If it’s considerably different from what you know to be true, take a different cab.

Carry good identification, in more than one place.
Make sure you have enough identification available on your holiday.  Have more than one copy of each and store them in secure places.  It’s also good if you have a copy in your email, just in case your luggage gets lost.

Keep to open and public places, especially at night.
Avoid walking in dark alleys at night, whether you’re alone or with someone.  Stay in well-lighted and open areas to avoid trouble.

Leave the flashy clothes or jewelry at home.
Valuable items should be left where they can be safe.  Don’t attract too much attention with your expensive bling.

Know where you are going.
Getting lost is sure part of the holiday adventure, but it won’t hurt if you carry a map around or have a GPS device in case you find yourself in a scary environment.

Have a fun and save holiday!
