Basic Security – Travel Tips Part 4

At host office:

  • Inform your host of your accommodation and travel itinerary as well as daily arrival times, in person rather than on the telephone.
  • Avoid discussing arrangements with other employees.
  • Do not leave personal or business documents unattended in offices.

At host airport:

  • Before leaving for the airport, check that the flight is on time to avoid a long wait in a public area.
  • Carry wallets, passports and tickets either in an inside pocket or a secure purse.
  • Immediately after checking in, pass through security and immigration to the secure area of the airport. Use a private lounge whenever possible.

In summary:

It’s in the interests of business travellers to learn as much as they can about the country in which they intend doing business and then rehearsing what they will do in a the event of an emergency.  Personal security can be greatly enhanced by awareness and the maintenance of a low profile; attention to these two basic principles can reduce the possibility of selection as a target and perhaps lead to the frustration of an attack.
