|Traveling and Your Valuables
Keeping Your Valuables While Traveling
Traveling, be it just across state or to another country is
always a great experience. To help people enjoy it rather than
having an untoward incident such as losing one's passport or
other items such as luggage, it is best to be prepared to avoid
such things from happening.
An essential item for any passenger traveling is the passport.
This, aside from cash and the tickets must be nearby at all
times preferably in a small handbag or purse for easy
accessibility. If it is possible, one should memorize the
passport number just in case for some reason it gets lost.
There is a high probability that when one travels, one usually
uses the same bag for various trips. It is best to remove all
the old destination tags and just have the new destination tag
attached to avoid confusion. Also, for personal protection, one
must have a lock and key for the bag and have it labeled both
inside and outside the bag to avoid having another traveler from
getting the luggage by mistake.
Depending on the length of the trip, one should just bring
enough bags that one can carry. If the trip will take a few days
or longer, choose a more appropriate bag to bring along. Taking
such precautions will make the person feel comfortable and not
helpless or immobilized when one is also not certain where the
taxi stand or the bus stop is located.
While traveling, one should be careful of the surroundings. One
should never let a stranger look after the luggage because it is
possible that they will put something in it or even steal it.
During the trip, one should choose a hotel located on a
well-traveled street. Usually, the more expensive the hotel, the
better the security. The first thing to do when entering a hotel
room is to check the windows, sliding doors and connecting rooms
if there are any and make sure it is secure.
Most hotels have a small vault in the room and safety deposit
box, which is complimentary. When leaving the hotel, it is also
advisable to leave the room key in the lobby and just claim it
when entering the hotel room.
Do not answer the hotel room door before verifying who it is. If
someone claims to be a hotel employee and one does not recall
making any request from the help desk, it is best to call the
front desk person first to verify.
Most importantly, make sure the hotel room door is locked at all
