Jul 11, 2014 09:21 ET

Last week we talked about keeping your home safe while you’re on vacation. This week, we’d like to talk about travel safety itself. Travelling is a great way to spend your time off. Whether it’s a day trip to the beach, museum or amusement park with the kids, or month-long getaways overseas, the DRP wants you to stay safe and have fun. So we’ve put together a list of some great travel tips to help ease your mind wherever you go.

• Present yourself with confidence
• Be aware of your surroundings
• Never leave your luggage unattended, and if travelling by car, be sure to lock your luggage in the trunk
• Leave expensive items such as jewelry, or electronics, at home
• If you need to bring your valuables, if possible, store the items in your hotels safety deposit box
• Keep the receipts for all purchases you make
• If your instincts are telling you something is wrong, trust them
• Always stay in a group while sightseeing
• Learn what the local police or law enforcement uniforms look like in case of an emergency
• Use a travel agent to help you find good reliable places to travel to. Your agent will know a lot of information on hotels, auto rentals and what entertainment is available
• Keep copies of all documents like your passport, travel insurance and plane tickets
• Do not wander alone, especially at night
• Buy travel insurance
• Keep all medication in your carry-on luggage
• Use sunscreen and keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water

We wish you a safe and happy time, wherever your vacation destination!
