Personal safety

Carrying money
As mentioned in the Finance section, it is sensible to carry cash with you when you are in the UK for purchasing goods and services.

If you have bank cards it is best to use them for most transactions as they are secured and you can track your spending through you bank account.

It is recommended that you do not carry more than £40 with you in cash and that you are discreet when handling your money. Street robberies are not very common in daylight hours but do occur, at night it can be common especially in city areas.

If someone does approach you and demand money in a threatening manner it is best just to give them what you have as a small number of people may have the intention to be violent if you resist. Please report any incidents to the police so they can monitor the area where it happened and hopefully stop it from happening again.

Nighttime safety
It is best not to travel alone on foot at night, especially in city areas. If you do have to travel try to travel in pairs or small groups, or if you can use a taxi that would be much safer.

Areas around public houses are particularly best to be avoided, as people intoxicated by alcohol can be agressive or abhusive.

Security at home
Always ensure your accommodation is kept secure, even if you are at home. Burgulary rates in the UK are reasonably high, especially in city areas.

You can purchase security chains for your front door that allow you to open the door slightly to see who is calling.

Always ensure you have the contents of your home insured so if you are burgaled your possessions can be replaced.
