Traveling safe: Tips to keep you secure while on the road

July 15, 2019

These days, we seem to have endless articles on IT security while traveling, but far fewer on physical safety. Because summer can be big travel months for many businesses, we put together the following list of tips to help keep you safe while away from home.

  • Prepare before leaving home—Leave expensive jewelry and accessories at home. Instead, replace these items with professional-looking substitutes that won’t draw unwanted attention.

  • Share your itinerary with friends and family—This ensures others have a general idea of where you’ll be, as well as your arrival and departure times.

  • Update your phone with your In Case of Emergency (ICE) contact—Identify one or more people to be your ICE contact and then update these contacts with “ICE” after their names in your phone.

  • Take photos of your travel documents—Store backup photos on your cloud drive just in case you lose your documents and your phone while traveling. You can also send copies to a friend or a family member for safekeeping.

  • Familiarize yourself with your rental car—Know how to use the lights, wipers, locks and alarm system before taking off.

  • Bring a portable door lock—This offers added safety at a hotel. Even if you feel safe without this added security, always use the deadbolt and bar lock.

  • Explore your host city during the day—Don’t wait until nightfall to check out local sites. Also, stick to well-populated areas and carry valuables close to your body. If going out after dark, go with a group.

These are just a few tips to help keep you safe and secure while traveling this summer. We hope you found them helpful. Safe travels to everyone!
