Steps to stay safe while travelling:
ConclusionWhen you are travelling with your loved ones, it is better to take only a few pieces of luggage with you and only take things which are necessary for your travel. Don't panic if you are attacked during your journey. Ask for local help and take a shelter somewhere in a safe place.

A nice article warning us to observe safe practices while travelling to avoid getting robbed.
I will add that we should try to travel light and as far possible stay in group say at least of two people so that we are able to help each other when one of us gets his valuables lost or stolen.
We must divide our cash in different places and keep little in the wallet. Keep the call center or customer center phone numbers handy and in case cards ate stolen you can inform them to block these cards.
If proper care and alertness is observed we can avoid some of such incidents.
A good article. Getting robbed in an unknown place is a terrible experience. But to minimize the damage what should we do? In my opinion, before the journey, we must take some precautionary measures. We must get photocopies of passport (in case of visiting any foreign country), credit cards, debit cards and other important documents. Keep one copy of the documents at your residence and another copy in your luggage in the hotel room. Keep the money in three different purses/bags. Report the theft/robbery to the nearest police station. Inform your home or office in case of major loss. Seek monetary help from your home, friends or local branches of your office (if you are on official tour). In foreign countries, seek the help of Embassy/High Commission/Consulate. Most importantly, never lose your composure in case of such emergency situations.
