Health Tip: Heed These Travel Safety Precautions

When going it alone

(HealthDayNews) -- Women who travel alone should take certain safety precautions, advises the American Automobile Association.

Here are some pointers:

  • Take a doorstop in your luggage and jam it under your closed hotel room door when you retire for the night.
  • Avoid ground level hotel rooms. Concierge floors often offer extra security.
  • Keep a business card from your hotel in your purse, in case you get lost.
  • If you're traveling in segregated areas, such as orthodox religious neighborhoods, take cues from the women around you and try to blend in.
  • Don't leave your drink unattended in a restaurant or bar.
  • Have phone numbers and know the location of places such as the U.S. embassy and the police.
  • When registering, use only your last name and first initial, if possible.
