When travelling abroad, the excitement of experiencing new cultures, diverse cities and customs can often distract you from looking after vital belongings. Indeed, whilst we at talkholiday believe in ensuring that you, the traveller, immerse yourself in all these foreign lands have to offer, we also want you to do so in a manner that will look after those precious possessions and documents.
However, in the terrible circumstance that you do happen to lose, or even be robbed of all your valuables – including debit cards, passport and phone – we at Talk Holiday have provided an informative step-by-step travel guide as to what you should do.
Indeed, the first step you should take is to get a police statement. This action is essential in helping you to prove your credibility to authorities without any identification or money to your name. It’s also necessary to have for your travel insurance, otherwise you won’t be able to claim anything. The next step you should take is to pay a visit to your nearest embassy where they’ll be able to confirm who you are and subsequently provide your passport details on an officially stamped form. They can also help you with expertise on how best to get home, where to seek legal representation or even an emergency passport should you have the funds available.
Next, venture into a bank where you’ll be able to have money transferred from home and have available for you to conveniently pick up. Subsequently, you can access free internet at the likes of public libraries to contact friends or family, letting them know what’s happened. Through Talk Holiday’s SOS message platform, you can quickly and effectively converse with those closest to you, informing them as to your current situation and your proposed plan of action.
With that being said, plan your travel with Talk Holiday and reap the benefits from an interactive and informative base of travel enthusiasts, ensuring that you’re well prepared for even the most bizarre of traveller situations!
