Safety advice in Madrid

Safety advice in Madrid

 

 

Madrid is safe.
Violent crime is almost unknown in Madrid, but bag-snatching and pickpocketing are rife – the former especially occurs in touristic areas and metro.

 

 

 

To avoid becoming a victim, follow these tips
Be careful in the street :

  • preferably use a small bag or a waist-bag / fanny-pack rather than a backpack
  • take little cash with you
  • do not put your wallet in your back pockets
  • if an assailant tries to snatch your bag, do not resist, or you may be injured
  • beware of individuals who may divert your attention in order to steal your personal belongings, for example: be ware anyone trying to clean something off your shoulder or sell you a newspaper. Those wanting to swap a coin for one from your country may also try to empty your wallet.

Wherever possible, choose bank cashpoints protected by a door which limits access to one person at a time. Keep a note of the numbers of your traveller’s cheques and credit cards separately.
Hotels and apartments in Madrid often provide safe boxes, either in the room or at reception - use them!
