Travel Safety Tips

When traveling, as in any major city, take certain precautions whether you are traveling or exploring the city. Here are some general tips to help make the most of your trip:

  • Lock up your valuables. Hotels provide safety deposit boxes in their rooms. It’s recommended that jewelry, airline tickets, money, and any important documents be stored in the hotel safe.
  • Remember your adapters. Bogota has 110-volt appliances.
  • Try not to use mobile telephones in the street and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Keep cameras and video recorders out of plain sight. Avoid wearing excessive jewelry, carrying any valuables, or large amounts of cash.
  • Use credit cards where possible. Your wallet should contain your ID, credit cards, and a minimum amount of cash.
  • Withdraw cash from ATMs that are inside your hotel, banks or commercial centers.
  • Notify hotel management as soon as possible in the event of a lost or stolen room key card.
  • Travel in a group and plan your itinerary before leaving the hotel to ensure you make your destination smoothly. If you get lost, call a taxi to take you to your destination. Your hotel can recommend a reputable taxi company.
  • Keep an eye on your luggage.
  • Exchange currency in shops or at the hotel’s front desk.
  • Bring a jacket or sweater because some buildings and restaurants can be a little cool with the air conditioner.
  • Tip extra if you want to. Restaurants and hotel tips are 10–15% .
