There are 400,000 incidents of pickpocketing per day worldwide!
Travel is a fabulous experience - new people, new places, new food, new memories, new everything.
Encountering pickpockets is a sad but likely reality for many women travellers. Backpacks, bumbags, shoulder bags, 'hidden' neck or waist pouches - no item is off limits for thieves.
In Paris in 2019, pickpocketing surged by 74%.
And it's not just the city of love that has a problem.
Some of our favourite places, Barcelona, Rome, Prague, Madrid, Amsterdam, Florence, Buenos Aires, Athens, Amsterdam, and Hanoi are the top 10 cities in the world for pickpockets and unfortunately are not the safest destinations for female travellers.
