SUMMARY:
– Slip a drinking glass onto the door handle of your hotel room, on your side. That way, if someone turns the knob as you’re sleeping, the glass will fall and alert you that someone has opened the door.
– Before going on your trip, download translated phrases from language apps. That way, in case you can’t access the Internet, you’ll still know how to say things like, “Where’s the bathroom?”
– Use a second wallet in addition to your regular one as a “dummy wallet.” You can even fill it with fake cash or plastic cards so that it looks legit. If you get pickpocketed or, even worse, mugged in the street, the perp won’t make off with your real wallet.
– In the hustle and bustle of travel, it’s pretty easy to lose important documents like your license or passport, especially when you’re taking them in and out of your bag to show authorities. If you’re worried about losing these precious documents, scan them and email the copies to yourself.
– Choosing a room between the 2nd and 4th floors puts you at less risk of being robbed. That’s because thieves typically hit the first or ground floor since it’s easier to get away fast.
– Even if you’re not around, leaving the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door makes staff and potential thieves think that you’re in there. If you want to take things a step further, turn your TV on at a low volume and leave it on when you head out.
– There have actually been cases of people being spied on and even filmed through these peepholes! This is a total violation of privacy! So by taping some paper over the peephole of your hotel room door, you can really protect yourself.
– Hotel safes are a great way to keep your jewelry, money, and important documents secure, right? Believe it or not, they’re actually the first things thieves go for when robbing a room.
– When you’re traveling, you’ll stumble upon a number of cafes, bookshops, and restaurants with open Wi-Fi. While this is super convenient, it’s also super unsafe.
– When getting into a cab while traveling, don’t ever say that you’re a tourist. This immediately makes you a target! The driver may assume you don’t know anything about your surroundings and take advantage of you, like driving longer to hike up your fare.

    Best way is to carry a thin plastic wedge and place it under the door,this way,the door selflocks when someone try to open the door,disregarding the knob movement,it cannot be undone from outside,place the wedge firmly under the door on the knob side and sleep in peace,because not everybody has a light sleep 😉

    Some hotel always ask to return the key to the reception spread out in the reception counter so every one coming in the hotel knows what room is empty.

    I have never been in a hotel that had real glassware it's usually plastic. I guess you have to steal from the hotel restaurant

    Why would you want to email yourself personal info?  Everyone knows by now that email is not safe,
    and if you email that info it will be out there for everyone to see forever.

    Do not disturb all the time means your room may not get changed new sheets, towels etc

    What about sleeping on the floor next to the window so anyone comes in see the bed he will think you are not there.

    That glass tip works only with a particular kind of door handle. Also, most hotel rooms are carpeted, so a glass falling on a carpeted floor will make little noise, and is unlikely to break.

    Tips I use when traveling:
    Use a flat pouch under your shirt instead of a wallet or purse. Store credit cards and cash in it. This will help you know your items won't get stolen.
