Safety is something all travelers have to consider whenever they hit the road. Potential unfortunate situations can happen at any time, anywhere and to anyone. Having said that, budget travelers tend to be a bit more adventurous and creative on the road as they look for ways to save a few dollars as they travel. This might be in the form of hitchhiking, sharing accommodation or staying in less than desirable places due to the attractive low prices.
Those options are all fine and part of the travel experience, so enjoy them. But, here I want to give you some tips, from my experiences as a budget traveler, so you can also stay safe on the road and have fun along the way.
These are just a few common tips on safety that could save you from a lot of unwanted situations and headaches, but in the end, it is up to you to apply them to your trip using your common sense.
