As the summer winds down, thousands will head out this weekend for a last minute vacation. Whether you’ve been planning your trip for months or are leaving on the spur of the moment, you’ll want to follow some basic safety tips:
Research your destination to avoid getting lost. Winding up in the wrong part of town in an unfamiliar city is no one’s idea of a good time.
Limit the amount of cash you carry to just the amount you need. Visit an ATM machine as your funds are depleted, or use credit cards to pay for expenses.
Let your neighbors know you’ll be gone so they can keep an eye on your house.
Leave your home looking occupied: put lights or televisions on timers to simulate normal household activity.
Don’t leave any valuables in your car. Laptop computers, for example, may be great for traveling, but when left in the car, they are magnets for thieves.
Keep your purses and wallets close to you. Don’t leave them on the table at a restaurant or bar where they can easily be picked up and carried away.
Never tell strangers that you are on vacation.
