TRAVEL

IDENTIFICATION
Do not forget to always carry all important identification documents and health/insurance cards.

MOBILE, CAMERA, MP3 PLAYER…
If you are travelling with electronics write down the serial number. It’s so much easier to identify in case of a robbery.

HANDBAG
Do not store any money or identification documents in your luggage. Keep them safe and close to you at all times in your handbag.

LUGGAGE
Tag all your belongings, this can save a lot of time and trouble when making a claim in case of loss.

AT THE HOTEL OR APARTMENT

SAFE
Do not leave any valuables, money or identification documents out in the open. Rent a safe.

MONEY
For your safety, avoid carrying large amounts of money when you travel. Use credit or debit cards instead.

COMING BACK HOME

When you get home, if you see any lights switched on, broken windows or forced doors, do not go inside. Immediately alert authorities.
