“It’s really scary because you are abroad. Always make sure you put things in the safe.”
Speaking on her podcast, Gemma shared her top travel tips for staying safe.
She continued: “If you are travelling, I would say, do your research, get to know the destination in-depth. Check the weather, I always check the weather.
“Also, make sure your suitcases are locked because you never know. If someone sees me checking in at an airport, they’re probably thinking ‘there’s a Louis Vuitton there, I’m gonna swipe it’.
“I always make sure I lock my cases and always have your important documents to hand.
“Always let your friends and family know where you’re travelling to.”
Gemma told how she even takes precautions when she’s in the UK – letting her agent Mark know where she is at all times.
