  • Secure Your Home While You Travel

    Filed Under: Blogging

With all the excitement of a vacation or trip, it’s easy to forget what you leave behind until it’s too late. There’s nothing worse than remembering to lock the garage when you’re on a beach 1,000 miles away. Plan to protect your property and pick up the correct travel insurance so you have complete peace of mind on your travels.

Make it look like you’re still at home – get a friend to collect mail, purchase timers for inside and outside lights, and arrange for someone to mow the lawn or shovel snow in winter.

Turn off the ringer on your telephone or unplug the phone if you don’t have an answering machine. Check with your security provider about leaving the house alarm on for an extended period of time – some systems are negatively affected by power cuts.

Make sure your home and travel insurance is up to date and that you have enough coverage. Tell close friends and relatives your departure and return dates but don’t spread the news wider – posting your vacation plans on facebook could be an open invitation to opportunist thieves.
