How to Avoid Pickpockets in Europe

Jump to last reply

The recent spate of threads about being robbed in Barcelona makes it a good idea to post the following guidelines on how to avoid getting pickpocketed - wherever you're traveling. Many thieves are professionals and the robbery takes place in seconds, but take these precautions and the chances are very good that you will not get pickpocketed.

These guidelines come from the Barcelona Yellow Pages and City Guide, because as the article states: If there were Olympic medals for pickpocket and bag-snatching schemes, then Barcelona would win the gold. Nevertheless, these guidelines would work anywhere in the world.
