Portugal is considered to be pretty safe for travellers, however just like any other countries out there, some cases of pickpockets and other forms of theft do occur. As such, tourists are advised to take caution when they to travel to a new location and the same can also be said with regards to Portugal. Here are some tips you can use for protecting yourself & your valuables.

Pickpocket cases are reported on a frequent basis in Portugal. As such, travelers are advised to heed pickpocket warnings and don’t take these signs for granted. The government has taken the necessary measures in providing tourist warning signs encouraging them to stay alert in certain areas in an effort to reduce the occurrence of pickpocket cases.

One area in particular where pickpockets thrive is the riding trams. The reason behind this is that trams are favored by visiting tours and tourists as they generally run full to capacity and are constantly stopping and starting – all of distractions that make a pickpocket’s job very easy, turning it into a preferable location by pickpockets. Are tourists left powerless with such incidents?

As mentioned earlier, pickpocket does not happen exclusively in Portugal but also around the world. It is very important that travelers plan in advance and learn how to avoid pickpockets in Europe when they are planning on visiting the country. There are many things you can do to deter yourself from becoming a pickpocketing victim. This includes identifying who the pickpockets are, finding where pickpockets hangout, knowing the tricks pickpockets use to take your stuff as well as having an overview on who do pickpockets target. It should be noted that this information not only applies in Portugal but also can also be implemented on your next travels.

One general advice tourists often receive is to travel light and avoid carrying excess baggage. If there indeed is a need to carry such items, travelers are advised to leave all of their important belongings in their respective hotel room. This in turn helps avoid the likelihood of them losing important documents and papers which can be problematic to lose during their travels.

Another helpful tip is to consider travelling in groups. Pickpockets feel more intimidated when they see tourists travelling in large groups when compared to a lone solo traveler. As such, they will less likely avoid pick pocketing these people to avoid getting mobbed by their group and are more likely to target an isolated person instead.

Keys oftentimes become bulky as they tend to accumulate and grow in numbers making it troublesome to carry around at all times. The likes of master key system allow tourists single key to access all of their locks making them quite convenient to bring. The key comes with a restricted master key system which helps eliminates the possibility of keys being duplicated without your authority - adding the much needed extra level of security to your property in an event that your key gets stolen. This in turn helps give travelers a good measure of security during their travels. Furthermore, a huge load was taken off their backs as they don’t have to feel constant pressure when their key gets lost as they are able to deactivate them with ease.
