Travel Safety Tips

It’s the season of travel and we’ve got some tips and ideas to make your vacations fun and memorable. This week we will be focusing on all things travel.

Today we’ve got some safety tips that we’ve learned over time. They are all pretty common sense things you probably already know, but just in case here’s what we recommend:

  • Don’t tell the internet when you will be leaving, where you are going, and how long you will be gone. You may think you know everyone you communicate with on Facebook, Twitter, etc., but do you really? The fewer that know the better. It would be awful to come back to a burglarized home.
  • If possible, have a house sitter or someone who can check on your home, collect mail, newspapers, etc.
  • If someone will be caring for pets make sure they have the veterinarian’s information.
  • Research the area you are going to be traveling. Are there areas you should avoid or be more careful in. When your at your destination be sure to stay aware of your surroundings.
  • Carry money and important documents on your person. If for some reason your purse or wallet is stolen or lost you will still have what you need. You should also separate your cash and your cards.
  • Keep all copies of receipts just in case you need to contact your bank to dispute a charge.
  • Keep a list of emergency numbers on you in case an emergency were to happen and someone needs to be contacted.
  • If you’ll be staying in a hotel be sure to use the safe to keep valuables.
  • If traveling in your car be sure you have all the information you need for road side service and your insurance card.

Once you are prepared you will feel more at ease and have more peace of mind. You can’t help but have fun after that. If you’ve got travel plans coming up, and we hope you do, we hope you have an amazing time!

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.


  1. I always approach the organization of trips responsibly. One of the main things for me is a comfortable car. So I often take it for rides on this 14CARS site at ENTERPRISE in Toronto. I have trusted this company for many years and have always been satisfied with their service
