Foreign travelers need pay more attention to avoid the pickpockets during tour. The following tips to avoid the pickpockets on China tour will help you to know the way to protect yourself from any possible losses.
Tips to avoid the pickpockets
1. Do not travel in narrow alleys or poorly lit streets.
2. When possible, avoid having crowds of people surrounding you.
3. Carry a dummy wallet and put your money in your front pocket.
4. Place a rubber band around your wallet; it will make it much more difficult to remove it from your pocket without your knowledge.
5. Carry your purse under your arm.
6. Carry your money under your clothes.
If losing passport on China tour, please report the loss immediately to local police authorities and your country'sembassy or consulate. Your local guide will assist you in this matter.
Be sure to write your current address in the space provided in your passport so that, if it is found, it can be returned to you.
It is good not to take your passport with you. Leave it in the hotel safe. Make a copy of your passport photo page and keep it with you. This also makes it easier to obtain a new passport if yours is lost.
China Travel Insurance
China travel insurance is the best way to protect yourselves against financial loss and medical emergency on China tours. The most useful plan is a comprehensive policy that includes coverage for trip cancellation and interruption, default, trip delay, and medical expenses (with a waiver for preexisting conditions). Without insurance, you will lose all or most of your money if you cancel your trip or have to cut it short, regardless of the reason. Default insurance covers you if your tour operator, airline, or cruise line goes out of business. Trip delay covers unforeseen expenses that you may incur due to bad weather or mechanical delays.
Study the fine print when comparing policies. For overseas travel, one of the most important components of travel insurance is its medical coverage. Supplemental health insurance will pick up the cost of your medical bills should you get sick or injured while traveling. U.S. residents should note that Medicare generally does not cover health-care costs outside the United States, nor do many privately issued policies. Residents of the United Kingdom can buy an annual travel-insurance policy valid for most vacations taken during the year in which the coverage is purchased. If you are pregnant or have a pre-existing condition, make sure you're covered. Always buy travel insurance directly from an insurance company or agent; if you buy it from a cruise line, airline, or tour operator that goes out of business, you probably will not be able to collect. Before you make any purchase, review your existing health and homeowner's policies to find out whether they cover expenses incurred while traveling.
