Travel Security Tips

The National Crime Prevention Council offers tips for travelers to be safe and secure while on the road.

  • Don’t answer the door in a hotel or motel room without verifying who it is.
  • If a person claims to be an employee, call the front desk and ask if someone from the hotel staff is supposed to have access to your room and for what purpose.
  • When returning to your hotel or motel late in the evening, use the main entrance of the hotel. Be observant and look around before entering parking lots.
  • Close the door securely whenever you are in your room and use all of the locking devices provided.
  • Don’t needlessly display guest room keys in public or carelessly leave them on restaurant tables, at the swimming pool, or other places where they can be easily stolen.
  • Don’t draw attention to yourself by displaying large amounts of cash or expensive jewelry.
  • Don’t invite strangers to your room. Place all valuables in the hotel or motel’s safe deposit box.
  • Don’t leave valuables in your vehicle. Check to see that any sliding glass doors or windows and any connecting room doors are locked.
  • If you see any suspicious activity, please report your observations to the management.
