21. Use Concierge Services
Have some time to view the local sights? Use the concierge’s services and don’t be afraid to ask about safety, whether you’re planning a quick morning run along the river or a fancy dinner, if you’re going solo.
22. Don’t Use a Map
When out and about, use a GPS on your phone instead of a map so you won’t look like a lost tourist. (That said, it’s good to have a map on hand in case your phone dies.) If you still get lost and have to look up new directions, duck into a store or coffee house instead of standing on the street.
23. Keep Your Phone Charged
Keep your smartphone charged. It’s not just a business necessity, but also a smart safety precaution. That’s why my new favorite travel “tool” is the Belkin 3-Outlet Mini Travel Swivel Charger Surge Protector. It’s got dual USB ports and five charging outlets total.
24. Don’t Befriend Strangers
Don’t make friends with strangers. Pickpockets and other criminals prey on solo business travelers. Don’t share too much information with anyone you don’t know, and don’t be shy about cutting off a conversation if it gets weird. Never invite a stranger back to your room.
25. Don’t Drink Excessively
Don’t drink too much. It clouds your judgment and weakens your defenses (not to mention making you look unprofessional).
