10 Tips About How To Keep Your Valuables Safe While Traveling
1. CARRY YOUR CASH IN DIFFERENT PLACES
Wherever you choose to keep your money, do not keep it all together. Instead, carry some cash in your bag, some in your pocket, and leave some back at the hotel. That way you can minimise the risk of losing it all in one go. Same goes with your credit cards, and identity cards, drivers licence, and passport. Don’t have all of your eggs in the same basket.
2. CARRY YOUR BACKPACK IN FRONT
If you are in a busy area or travelling on the metro or subway then make sure you carry your backpack in front of you.
3. BE CAREFUL AT ATMS
Whenever you use an ATM abroad make sure that there is no one else too close behind you. It is also a good idea to only withdraw money from the ATMs inside the banks rather than the ones on the street. Never underestimate the tricks thieves can use to view your pin number.
4. ONLY KEEP SMALL AMOUNTS OF CASH IN YOUR WALLET
If you regularly need to take out your wallet then only keep a small amount of money in it.
5. DON’T WEAR EXPENSIVE JEWELLERY
Try not to advertise your wealth when you go on vacation by wearing expensive jewellery. This may attract some unwanted attention and make you a more tempting target for thieves.
6. KEEP YOUR CREDIT CARD IN SIGHT
Whenever you spend money on your credit card, don’t let anyone take it out of your sight, especially in restaurants. Cards can be copied very quickly and this could put you at risk of fraud.
7. USE A PREPAID CARD
Consider taking a prepaid card. You can top up the card with a small amount of money from your bank account, and then you know that this amount is the most that you can lose.
8. KNOW YOUR CARD CANCELLATION NUMBERS
Make sure that you keep your credit card cancellation numbers separately from your cards. If you are unlucky enough to lose your cards then you can still cancel them before any money is stolen.
9. STORE COPIES OF ALL YOUR DOCUMENTS
Whenever you go overseas, make sure that you make some copies of your passport, flight tickets, insurance documents, hotel reservations, and anything else of importance.
10. LEAVE YOUR VALUABLES IN HOTEL ROOM OR PORTABLE SMART SAFE BOX
Most hotels, hostels, and guesthouses have a safe that you can use, either at the reception or in your room. Make use of it.
Portable safe box with smart control function is another better choice. You can put your valuable to this portable safe and take a safe where you go. And the smart control function offers a greate help to keep your valuable safe. Remote Access via APP let you control the safe easily, and if the theft try to open or take it, alarm active and make a alarm sound, meanwhile, your phone will get notification at once.
