Matters needing attention

Advice: Check out for missing items. According to our guide, tourists put things in the two places where the wine is most likely to be forgotten. One in the safe, one under the pillow. Many tourists store their valuables, such as cash and passports, in these two places. If you have the misfortune to put your own money under your pillow, people will naturally take it as a tip. Countermeasure: Forget things in time with the leader of the team, the leader will help you communicate wine back.


When visiting the tour group lost advice: love photographers and shopaholics do not get lost. It is understood that the tourists who are most easily separated from the group are mainly several types of people. There are those who love to take pictures of scenery and sometimes wish they could take a picture of a bizarre garbage can. The other is that there is a shopaholic on the street, who wants to go in and stroll, compare prices, kill prices, and shop, and does not keep almost the time in mind. Countermeasure: Wait in place or request assistance. Don't worry, first wait in the same place or the place agreed by the guide, if you have a distance from the group, and you know the address of the next stop of the group, you can contact the leader, and then take a taxi to go there immediately. Assistance can also be requested at the police station, embassy or local tourism department.


Don't panic if your child goes missing. Inform the tour guide, tour leader or travel agent first. If the child has just gone missing, ask them to help search nearby, and if the child has been missing for a while, call the police immediately. Prevention: Keep it with you. Carefully read the notice of departure, precautions and emergency persons outside the country and carry them with you in case of emergency. Parents told their children before the trip: if lost, do not panic, try to stay in place, wait for parents to find, see the police to find police help, absolutely do not go with strangers. And give the child emergency and liquor address cards.


Luggage loss advice: Be careful with your luggage at the transit station. The majority of lost luggage occurs on connecting flights. Then, when checking baggage, be sure to make sure that the baggage ticket indicates that you are also transferring with the tourist. Countermeasure: Provide relevant documents to the airline. If the checked baggage is lost during the flight, the passenger should follow the following steps: First, before leaving the customs, immediately take the baggage claim certificate and ticket to the airline negotiation. Airlines generally do not make compensation decisions, and instead give passengers some much-needed cash. Second, if the baggage is not found within six months, the airline will decide to compensate. Prevention: Register items accurately. Tie your luggage securely and lock it, and check that it is securely taped and that your name, address and destination are clearly written. In addition, the items registered in the baggage tag on the baggage should be accurate. It is best to apply for baggage value insurance in advance for checked valuables
