What other tips do people here have for travelling safely and securely?

8 Tips for Secure Travel: Safeguarding Personal Information, Avoiding Hackers, and Outwitting Thieves

Before you embark on a trip this spring or summer:

Copy, copy, copy. Make a scan or photocopy of credit cards, passports, driver’s licenses, and other important documents and keep a paper copy of them separately when you travel. I made fun of my father for doing this when I was a child but now I see his point....

This! Happened to me like 2 weeks ago in Orlando. Got an alert from AMEX about some charge on a card I havent used in years. Ended up being a fraudulent charge even though I still had the card with me. Upon further investigation I realized it was one of those rfid cards (only rfid card I had).

Anyways I was lucky in this case because AMEX caught the transaction and blocked it and since it was a card I never use I just canceled it.
