As the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day are approaching, many friends choose to travel abroad. In order to ensure a safe and happy trip and a safe and healthy return home, we would like to remind everyone to make preparations before traveling, travel in a civilized and law-abiding way, pay attention to traffic safety, and handle disputes rationally.
1. Be prepared before traveling
Take the initiative to understand the security situation of travel destinations and avoid traveling to high-risk countries or countries where terrorist attacks, riots, marches, and demonstrations have recently occurred.
Choose travel routes and regular service providers carefully. If traveling in a group, please choose a travel agency with high reputation and good service, and actively consider purchasing personal accident insurance. Try to avoid “free travel” by yourself, and inform your family members of your travel route, plans, and your own situation in a timely manner.
2. Travel in a civilized and law-abiding manner
Please abide by the laws, be careful in your words and deeds during your trip, and do not buy or carry prohibited items or engage in illegal and criminal activities. Understand the customs, cultural traditions, religious beliefs and behavioral taboos of the destination in advance, behave appropriately, travel civilized, and show a good image of Chinese tourists.
3. Pay attention to traffic safety
Currently, some countries have a high incidence of traffic accidents, and traffic accidents occur from time to time. Please learn more about the road conditions, driving habits and traffic conditions of the destination country, strictly abide by local traffic regulations, wear seat belts when riding and driving, and avoid dangerous behaviors such as speeding, drunk driving, running red lights, and fatigue driving. If you find that the driver is tired for a long time or driving too fast when taking a tour bus, you will be reminded promptly.
4. Steady risk avoidance
Activities such as diving, rock climbing, bungee jumping, and hot air ballooning have higher risks. In recent years, there have been several accidents causing casualties due to related activities. It is recommended to choose carefully. If you participate in related activities, please be sure to receive training and escort from professionals in strict accordance with the requirements.
Do not go out for activities in bad weather, after drinking alcohol or taking drugs, or when you are in poor health. Never travel to undeveloped, unsafe areas. Please take good care of your documents and belongings. It is recommended to keep copies and electronic versions of important documents for backup.
5. Prevent epidemic diseases
Please pay attention to the epidemic situation of infectious diseases in travel destinations, pay close attention to local public health dynamics, epidemic prevention reminders and suggestions, keep abreast of epidemic prevention and control knowledge, take the initiative to take effective preventive measures, and try to avoid passing through areas with severe epidemics or staying there for a long time. If symptoms such as fever and headache occur, please seek medical treatment promptly without delay.
6. Handle disputes rationally
If you have any disputes with intermediaries, travel agencies, airlines, etc., please defend your rights rationally and resolve them through negotiation or legal channels, and avoid taking excessive or irrational actions. If you encounter local law enforcement officials enforcing the law normally, you should cooperate, remain rational when accepting inspections, and answer questions truthfully.
If you believe that the other party has committed infringement, you can ask them to produce their documents, write down their work permit and license plate information, and safeguard their rights and interests through litigation and other channels.
7. Remember the emergency phone number
Master emergency contact information, such as destination police, emergency telephone numbers, and consular protection and assistance telephone numbers of embassies and consulates abroad. In addition, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ global consular protection will serve everyone 24 hours a day to protect everyone’s travel safety!
