Need to know
Emergencies - Dial 999 for police emergencies The number 811 is used for the ambulance service and 990 for the fire brigade.
Security in Tobago - You should maintain at least the same level of security awareness as you would in the UK and make sure your living accommodation is secure. Don’t carry large amounts of cash or wear eye-catching jewellery. Use a hotel safe to store valuables, money and passports. Petty theft from cars is common. Don’t walk alone in deserted areas including beaches even in daylight. Consult your tour operator if in doubt. Don’t take lifts with unknown persons (unless with proper known/ licensed taxis)
Be vigilant at all times and carry a mobile phone with roaming capability for use in emergency.
Other Risks - When taking a boat trip check that the boat operator has sails or oars in the event of an engine breakdown, a radio and lifejackets and equipment in the event of a fire. Accidents do happen and boats can break down. When sourcing a water sport provider that is not affiliated to your hotel, make sure they are properly licenced to provide those services, avoid approaches on the beach from vendors offering water sport.
