Madrid is not considered to be a dangerous city at all, but it does have its unfortunate pick-pocketing, as most big cities do. To avoid any unfortunate event, we strongly recommend the following tips:
- As soon as you get off the airplane in Adolfo Suárez Barajas Airport, place your wallet in a front DEEP POCKET or zip up your purse and hang it IN FRONT OF YOU at all times.
- When sitting at a table, never leave anything of value like a Smartphone etc…, especially in an outdoor table, and DO hang your purse in front of you at all times even while seated, never leave ANYTHING on a table.
- Never carry anything of value in the EXTERIOR POCKETS of a back-pack.
