If a hotel is fully booked, you may still be in luck; ask for a room that is listed as out of service. If a room needs minor changes to be made, a hotel may classify it as not being in service.
If there is hotel room available on a floor that is higher, you should request that one. Ground floor rooms are easier for thieves to access. Be sure to also ask for quarters which do not have sliding doors. Glass or sliding doors are easier to damage. Review any hotels or resorts you plan on staying in through online reviews and travel sites, so that any potential issues can surface before you finalize your itinerary. If you avoid hotels that have many bad reviews, you can help save yourself from having the same bad experiences.
With the flying restrictions in place, do not wrap any gifts before you take a trip. TSA is sure to be suspicious of your gift and take the wrapping right off. Instead, include a bag and tissue paper in your luggage to wrap the gift once you get there.
Find out about local customs and laws before you reach your destination. Some behavior you find normal may be offensive or even illegal in another country. Make sure to show the best decorum possible, and respect the authorities. Watch your important belongings when traveling. Be very aware of keeping a close eye on your purse when you are traveling. Also, do not use bags that someone can easily open on a crowded subway or in another crowded public area. These are but a few tips to consider when shopping for a safe bag for your travels.
