Like many others my summer holiday is the most looked forward to event on my yearly calendar. Two weeks of relaxation, travelling and excessive indulging in food and drink from which ever culture I decide to explore on my destination of choice,  goes down extremely well. But making off and being able to travel without a worry is a must to be able to fully enjoy your trip without care. These are my top 5 tips for ensuring you enjoy a safe and care free trip away with this summer.


Lock up and leave.

Make sure before you leave you fully check your home the night before leaving. The morning can often bring a rush of excitement and with excitement sometimes things get missed. Double check all windows and doors even shed doors are locked, no valuables are left on show and no switches are left on. A good check can leave you with an enjoyable flight out.


Park on my drive.

Giving the impression you are home is a great security tactic, asking a friend, neighbour or family member to park on your drive whilst your away is a great way of giving the impression that your home.


Keep an eye on your bags.

Try and keep a close eye on your bags and try to keep them as close to you as possible when travelling to avoid being pick-pocketed. Pacsafe is a great way of keeping your items secure. They provide a range of theft proof bags prefect for the traveller abroad.


Don’t advertise your trip.

Try and keep a low profile on social media, try and save showing off all your holiday pictures of paradise till you return.


Split up your money

Divide your cards and cash between different pockets and bags this will ensure that you never have everything stolen at once.
