Travel Safety Tips For Protecting Valuables

1. Public transportation or Sightseeing Safety Tips

keep your important valuables like passports, money, and camera directly on you just in case. This is one of the most used and best travel safety tips you will hear. 

2.Protect any items you leave behind. :

Maybe you are staying at a hotel or a rental home with maid service. If they don’t have a safe you might want to buy yourself a Portable Combination Safe It’s convenient size,  keeps your cell phone, money, keys, jewelry, credit cards or other small valuables secure while traveling, at work, on-campus or at the gym.

Look for a portable safe that is also water-resistant construction helps keep your small belongings protected, and the durable cable can be wrapped securely around a fixed object or serve as a carrying handle.

We have been at the beach at a rental home in the past and the owners had workers come by to fix something. IT would have been nice to know our items we did not want to lose at the beach were safely locked up in the house.

3. Lock any checked bags:  

My husband is a stickler about not checking bags. Mainly he does not want the airlines to lose our luggage or hold us up at our destination. We recently took a ski trip and did not have enough room in our carry on luggage for all the ski equipment. It would have been nice to have had a Master Lock Luggage lock model No 4680DBLK, to protect the borrowed ski equipment. Locking checked bags is a great travel safety tip to always follow. 


Buy a TSA approved luggage lock that offers on-the-go security.  One that has easy-to-use combination lock that affixes to your luggage. Affordable and reliable solution keeps your valuables protected whether you’re en route to your destination, such as checking your bags at the airport, or once you’ve arrived and your luggage is stored in your hotel room.
