After all, you wouldn’t want to ruin a memorable trip with some mortifying news that your house or apartment has been broken into. Value your home even more by making it a habit to always take precautions before you board a flight to your well-deserved holiday — it will keep your property and belongings safe and it will also give you some added peace of mind.
To start off, below is a helpful infographic that shows some great tips to remember!
Get to know your neighbours. A great way to keep your home safe is to have your neighbours keep an eye on your house. Let them know you will be away. If possible, let them know who has a key to your place. Do NOT hide the keys in your mail box, plant pots, or under your door mat. Beter to leave a key with a neighbour you trust.
- PARKED CAR
If you park your car on the street during your holidays, try to not leave it in a low transit area.
- UNKNOWN PEOPLE
Do NOT talk about your upcoming trip in front of people you do not know.
Notify the police if strange people are lurking around your home. Remember to take notes of actions and/or car details of those persons.
- LOADING LUGGAGE
You can always pack your luggage in your car the night before. If not, try to be as discreet as possible when loading your car.
