How to Travel to a Dangerous Destination
After reading our list of the most dangerous travel destinations for 2018, you’re likely eager to start planning your next trip… To one of those destinations. However, before you do just that, it’s imperative that you know exactly what you’re getting into and how to increase your safety while doing so. Although the following is advice on how to travel to a dangerous destination, they can be just as beneficial when traveling to a safe vacation spot with the family.
Do Your Research
You laugh in the face of danger. We get it. As do we. However, to make sure that you do more laughing than you do crapping our pants while being mugged in some random alley, or to hopefully avoid that altogether, you have to know what you’re getting into.
The first step to learning how to travel to a dangerous destination is to know the destination. Research the safety risks of that particular area, so you know what to keep your eye out for. For example, if you’re traveling to a destination that is known for electronic pick-pocketing, you’ll want to be aware of this so you can bring your RFID carbon fiber wallet and passport cover instead of your regular one.
Travel with the Right People
All of your buddies are jumping at the opportunity to travel with you to a dangerous destination, but you have to think about whether or not that person is good for your travel. Sure, Joe is a great wingman and companion at the local bar but if he can’t keep his wits about him when drinking, he might not be the best person to travel to the most dangerous destination with.
So, think about who you’ll be traveling with and make sure they know how to travel - and act in a dangerous destination.
Bring a Tactical Pen That
Our tactical pens are small but mighty and should definitely be one item you don’t travel without. One end has a ceramic bead which allows you to easily break a window, whereas the other is a Tungsten head which is designed for self-defense. And you don’t need us to explain why these would be beneficial when traveling to any destination but in particular, dangerous ones.
Protect Your Identification and Cards
Electronic pick-pocketing is a serious concern in some of the safest travel destinations but of course, it’s typically more of a risk in areas that are already plagued with crime. So, whether you’re taking the kids to Disney world or riding your motorcycle through Peru, you’ll want to make sure that your identification and cards are safe.
Our tactical carbon fiber wallets are designed with CX6 carbon fiber and performance kangaroo leather for utmost durability and protection. They also have RFID Data Armor protection to block all EMFs, which instantly eliminates the possibility of being electronically pick-pocketed.
When traveling to any destination but particularly one that is considered to be dangerous, you have to remain vigilant. Be aware of your surroundings, always have a backup plan (or two), and definitely keep your tactical pen nearby in case of an emergency.
Whether you’re choosing to travel to a dangerous vacation destination or taking a trip across town, you can never go wrong with having carbon fiber wallets, RFID protection passport covers and multi-purpose tactical pens. So, head on over to Cold Fire and pick up your traveling essentials before taking off.
