Security Tips When You Travel

Security Tips When You Travel

1. Always use common sense when traveling. Listen to your instincts.

2. Never leave your bags or belongings unattended.

3. Keep your suitcases locked except when checking your baggage on the airlines. (New regulations recommend you do not lock your bags as they may be screened by security).

4. Always keep all valuables with you at all times (Cash, passport, traveler’s checks etc.) Use a money belt hidden under your clothing to deter pick pockets

5. When making large purchases, use a credit card. The credit card company can work on your behalf should a problem arise later.

6. Don’t put anything in checked baggage that you would truly hate to loose. (Valuables, films, photos)

7. Be careful if you travel with a laptop computer.

8. When going through security checkpoints at airports, be sure to keep one eye on your bags. It’s easy to get distracted at this time.

9. Carry a copy of your itinerary in your luggage, as well as a form of identification. This increases the likelihood that your bag will get back to you if it is lost.

10. Always carry a photocopy of your passport including any visa pages. This makes the reissue process much easier.

11. Talk to your kids. Before you arrive at the airport, have a serious talk with your children about airport security and things that may happen at the checkpoints. Children will need to temporarily part with such things as blankets and stuffed animals, and older children need to know that any comment suggesting a threat to an aircraft or its passengers is taken seriously by TSA security officers.

12. Do not wrap gifts. Wrap them when you reach your destination. If a wrapped gift sets off an alarm, TSA security officers will need to unwrap the gift to check it out.

Good Travel Ideas Anytime

13. To minimize the risk of damage or loss, don’t pack fragile or valuable items in checked baggage. Take them with you in carry-on baggage, or ship them to your destination instead.

14. To minimize the risk of damage or loss, don’t pack fragile or valuable items in checked baggage. Take them with you in carry-on baggage, or ship them to your destination instead.

15. Put undeveloped film in carry-on baggage because equipment used to screen checked baggage will damage film. Also, high-speed and specialty film should not be put through X-ray machines, so passengers may ask security officers at the checkpoint to physically inspect film.
