  • Protect Yourself Against Terrorism When Traveling: Part One

    Filed Under: Blogging

While terrorist acts almost always occur without warning, and often in unpredictable patterns, you will never be able to protect yourself completely. However, there are some things you can do to reduce your risk. Make sure you have good quality international travel insurance to help you with expenses in the unlikely event of a terrorist act, and trip cancellation insurance in case your vacation is cancelled due to terrorist acts taking place before you arrive.

Pay attention to travel warnings and don’t travel to areas where there is a high risk of terrorism or kidnappings. Don’t take stopovers in airports of high-risk regions or countries.

Try not to draw attention to yourself in the way you dress and in your behavior. If terrorists are looking for Western targets they may be more attracted to people who stand out.

Keep alert for packages or luggage that looks abandoned or has no owner nearby, especially in airports. Report suspicious bags to the authorities immediately and try to leave the area as soon as possible. Also report any suspicious behavior to local authorities or to the US embassy.
