5 Travel Tips for Your Upcoming Vacation
Here are our recommended 5 travel tips so you can relax, enjoy and be safe.
1. Keep Your Documents to Yourself
Keep your important documents on your person at all times while traveling. Scan your passport, driver’s license, visa, and itinerary before you go, store them in a secure location, and leave a copy.
2. Minimize Exposure to Crowds
It is wise to minimize the amount of time you spend in lines, public shops, and crowded areas like tourist attractions and public transportation.
3. Wait to Post Photos or Updates on Social Media
Posting updates while you’re traveling can alert criminals back home that you’re not around.
4. Only Use ATMs in Secure Locations
Be sure to call your credit card providers before you go, to make sure you can use your cards when you travel.
5. Make Sure You Have the Necessary Travel Insurance
You may need anything from trip cancelation, if a hurricane hits the island a week before departure, to medical benefits, if you fall while hiking a volcano and need to get an x-ray. Regardless, it is wise to review your insurance coverage with your agent before you travel to make sure you’re fully protected if something happens.
