  • Hotel Safety for Travelers

    Filed Under: Blogging

Your vacation hotel can be your heaven but also your hell. Make sure you remember your accommodation for all the right reasons. While you can feel safe that you’re protected with international travel insurance, it’s far better to avoid any problems in the first place.

Use the hotel safe for valuables, not a locked suitcase or a pair of socks hidden under the bed. Use the lobby safe if your room doesn’t have one. Keep the door chain or door bolt locked whenever you’re inside.

Avoid ground-floor rooms. The best hotel room is one on the third to the fifth floor – you’re out of reach of street-level crime and can still be reached by fire truck ladders. Familiarize yourself with escape routes in the event of a fire or emergency.

Make sure you don’t leave your hotel keys unattended on restaurant tables or bars. And don’t discuss your room number when other people can overhear. If the worst happens and your hotel room is burgled, or you lose luggage from the hotel’s lobby, call on your international travel insurance plan.
