No corren buenos tiempos para el viajero, sea este un viajero frecuente o nos encontremos ante un viaje de vacaciones. Las noticias acerca de ataques en México, Brasil, Turquía o La India, sumado al terrorismo  y las alarmas terroristas hace que se extremen las medidas de seguridad en aeropuertos, estaciones de tren y autobús y hoteles, con los consiguientes trastornos para todos. Pero al viajero también le toca poner en práctica sus propias restricciones de seguridad, para salvaguardar en lo posible su integridad y la de sus pertenencias. Estas son las más indicadas.

Seguridad-800x533_600x400

  • Antes de viajar, comprobar en los servicios de información gubernamentales las recomendaciones para el país de destino y comunicar a la embajada o consulado las fechas del viaje. Imprescindible rellenar la información de contacto en caso de emergencias de visas y pasaportes.

 

  • Es importante tener en cuenta que los objetivos terroristas son, preferentemente, aeropuertos, trenes, barcos, eventos deportivos o con gran densidad de público, áreas residenciales, hoteles, edificios de oficinas, colegios, restaurantes, clubs… Es importante evitar en lo posible las aglomeraciones de personas.

 

  • El Departamento de Estado estadounidense coordina el Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), que mantiene a los viajeros al tanto de las novedades en seguridad y facilita que la embajada les localice en caso de emergencia.

 

  • No te vistas como un turista: trata de asemejarte a los locales. No lleves joyas ni tarjetas de crédito innecesarias ni muestres tus gadgets tecnológicos. Deja pasaporte y dinero en la caja fuerte del hotel, o transpórtalo cerca del cuerpo.

 

  • Si llevas medicinas, transpórtalas en sus cajas originales y con la receta del médico, para evitar que se queden en los controles de seguridad.

 

  • Lleva fotocopia de pasaporte y tarjeta de crédito de seguridad, por si te roban.

 

  • Reserva hoteles de tamaño grande, con mejores medidas de seguridad. Preferiblemente entre las plantas segunda y séptima.

 

  • La mayoría de los crímenes ocurren entre las 10 pm y las 5 am: trata de quedarte en el hotel en ese lapso de tiempo.

 

  • No cuelgues el cartel de Do not disturb si no quieres anunciar si estás o no en la habitación.

 

  • Comprueba en Google Street View cómo es el vecindario donde te vas a alojar.

 

  • Merece la pena en países en vías de desarrollo o muy ajenos a nuestra cultura de origen contratar un guía local. En caso contrario, es recomendable contactar con algún local que nos indique qué zonas debemos evitar.
  • Informarse muy bien al respecto de los medios de transporte. En La India, por ejemplo, merece la pena alquilar un coche privado. Incluso hay hoteles que disponen de chóferes femeninos y plantas sólo para mujeres.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to share it with someone!

    I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the
    layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme
    or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing,
    it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today.

    Greetings from California! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I really like the information you provide here
    and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your
    blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..
    Anyways, wonderful site!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera.
    Excellent Blog!

    I do agree with all the ideas you’ve offered on your post.

    They are really convincing and will definitely work.
    Still, the posts are too brief for newbies.
    May you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

    Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
