Travelling this winter? Don’t forget to stay safe and keep belongings secure whilst away. SportsDirect.com, one of the UK’s leading suitcase and luggage retailers offers up some top tips on how to avoid losing valuables when travelling abroad or around the UK.
- Baggage insurance. These things happen, suitcases can be placed on the wrong flight or carousel, and having the items returned upon arrival can involve masses of paperwork and phone calls. To make things easier should the worst happen, most travel insurers now offer baggage cover as an extra to their policy, paying that little bit extra up front may save time and costs in the long run.
- Suitcase locks. Simple, but affective; having a suitcase lock will help avoid spillage and losing items should the suitcase come undone during a journey. Heavier locks and locks with combination codes can also help deter thieves based in airports and hotels.
- Travel with valuables. All travel documents, personal valuables and cash should be kept within hand luggage and carry on bags whilst travelling- this way if anything should happen, they are on hand in an emergency as well as safe from the lost luggage room.
- Suitcase compartments. More for accidents than emergencies, if the suitcase should come open in transit, if belongings are packed into compartments and secured with the inside straps, there is less chance of items falling out and getting lost.
