2. Prepare for the unexpected: If you are travelling by car, have your vehicle examined before you head off. Stock up on emergency supplies like blankets, bottled water, snacks, flashlights and jumper cables. Ensure your tires have good tread, are properly inflated and make sure you have that spare handy. Be aware of road conditions before leaving and plan accordingly.
3. Tap into technology: With new apps geared toward travelers, getting to your destination and enjoying your time away is easier than ever. There are apps that offer real-time travel advice personalized to your location, weather conditions and interests along with direction-related apps that offer tips on traffic, road conditions and construction. You can also securely store copies of travel documents, health records and passports through the Master Lock Vault app for convenient 24/7 access.
4. Enjoy the elements worry free: For less than $30, portable safes like the Sentrysafe Small Portable Combination Safe or Master Lock SafeSpace Portable Safe offer peace of mind and keep your items like cell phone, money, keys, jewelry, credit cards and other small valuables locked and secure while you enjoy a walk on the beach, go swimming or enjoy an adventure on your vacation. The compact and versatile safes feature a durable cable, which can be wrapped securely around a fixed object or serve as a carrying handle. These are great for family adventures at theme and water parks too.
5. Limit Social Media: While it's fun to share details of your vacation via social media, it could also make you a target for cyber-savvy burglars. Publically posting the exact dates, times and locations of your trip or sharing check-ins and tagging photos with your location can create a security risk to your home. Instead of posting every single thing in real time, save some of it and post later when you get home!
Whatever you do and wherever you go, you can be sure your personal items are safe and secure with Master Lock!
