Vacation Safety

Posted on January 17th, 2016 by Alert Protective

Winter is full swing, and many Midwesterners are desperate to escape to warmer, sunnier destinations. If you are lucky enough to leave on a vacation this winter, it is important to not only ensure your safety while traveling, but to also keep your home well-protected when you are gone.

Avoid vacation risks with these tips:

  • Tell your social media friends about your trip after the fact. As tempting as it is, do not post on your social media accounts about your leaving. This can be an open invitation to burglars to come into your empty home.
  • Leave your most valuable possessions at home. Jewelry, large amounts of cash and other fine items should be kept at your home, locked away in a safe. If you must bring more valuable items with you, do not display them out in the open; this makes you a target to thieves and criminals. Keep them in a hotel safe when you aren’t using them.
  • Use passwords! If you use an app on your smartphone, tablet or laptop, make sure they are all password protected. You don’t want control over your home to fall into someone else’s hands.
  • Cover your bases. Make photocopies of your license, passport and any other forms of identification and keep them separate from the originals. It never hurts to have backup.

Happy trails!
