Travel Risks in Portugal
Crime rates in Portugal are low, but pickpocketing and theft still remain a problem in busy and ‘touristy’ areas. Always stay vigilant of your surroundings and keep your belongings where you can see them.
Pushy drug dealers are also common in some areas of Portugal, even operating in broad daylight. Ignore them if you can, as responding to them may cause them to keep pushing. Always travel in pairs, especially after dark, to minimise your risk of crime.
