Take your hotel's details with you. If you find yourself in trouble you can show it to a local who can guide you in the right direction.
Take a photo of your taxi’s license plate before getting in. If something goes wrong it will help authorities identify it.
Don’t get into a taxi with other people in it. You never know who you can trust.
Don’t keep all your money in your wallet in case you are robbed. Spread it around you i.e. pockets, socks etc.
Use a decoy wallet with useless cards and small notes to hand over if robbed.
Carry a photocopy of your passport at all times.
Don’t pay until you’re out of the taxi and have your luggage.
