Step 6: Secure yourself

When taking a laptop, consider putting it inside a backpack or another unassuming bag. Use a sturdy bag that isn't see-through.

As a business person you're a prime target for criminals, so don't spotlight yourself any more than necessary.

If you're traveling straight to your hotel room after the flight, consider wearing casual clothing during the flight, such as jeans and a sweater instead of business wear. However, if you packed your suit inside a checked bag, you may want to wear another suit anyway. Not having a suit to wear to a business meeting could be disastrous.

Never pack your wallet in your bag. Keep it in an easily reachable place, like the front pocket of your pants or the side pocket of your purse.

Write up identification tags and put them everywhere--inside and outside your luggage. Include your e-mail address on your luggage tags. Make sure your tags show your final destination. And don't forget to remove all old tags.

Leave a day-by-day itinerary with friends and neighbors, and don't forget to check up with people once you arrive at your hotel.
