Make copies of your important documents like your passport and any credit cards, ATM cards, or any other bank cards. Leave one at home with a trusted friend or relative you can contact in an emergency, and leave one in your hotel safe. Or you can make copies and store them on a portable flash drive you carry with you. In this way if your bag is stolen, or heaven forbid, you loose your documents or credit cards, you’ll have back up. When you’re out and about, carry the copy of your passport with you, and leave the real deal locked in the safe or in your luggage. With just the smallest amount of pre-planning you can save yourself a lot of hassle and lost time should the unmentionable happen. Safe travels!
