Read Before Your Summer Travels

Traveling is part of the fun of adventure. Use these tips for safe summer travel.

Now that summer is here, plenty of us will soon be packing for a weekend getaway, 2-week vacation, or foreign holiday. Whether you’re heading out of town for a few days or taking time off to explore international lands, one sure way to ensure your trip is a smooth one is to be prepared. Check out our summer travel tips for help on how to do just that!

Before you go:

  • Research basic information about your destination
  • Leave a copy of your itinerary with a trusted family member or friend
  • If you’re driving, give your car a check-up and review your auto insurance
  • Take a paper map with you – just in case your smartphone isn’t so smart and loses signal!

At the airport:

  • Never leave your bag unattended
  • Don’t accept any packages from strangers
  • Report any suspicious activities
  • Follow all safety and security rules
  • Don’t pack or bring a lot of valuables with you, such as jewelry. If you do take valuables, ensure they are in your carry-on luggage

At your destination:

  • Pay attention to your surroundings!
  • Avoid taking more cash, travelers’ checks, or credit cards than you need
  • Don’t accept rides from strangers
  • Stay in well-lit and well-travelled places
  • Don’t “flash” your cash or other valuables
  • Avoid looking like a typical tourist – you may be considered an easy target to rob!
