Think your Hotel Safe Is Safe? Don’t Be So Sure

Screen Shot 2017-06-27 at 10.14.57 PMYou’ve arrived at your destination safely, gotten to your hotel, checked into your room and unpacked. All your clothes are in the closet and drawers, and your toiletries are in the bathroom. But you still have that other, more valuable stuff to put somewhere…your tablet or laptop, perhaps some extra cash or your jewelry, maybe your passport, and whatever else you would feel more comfortable about if it was locked up. You’ll just put it in the safe in your room, right? After all, that’s the best thing to do with valuables when you’re staying at a hotel, right?

How To Be Cheap And Frugal When You Travel, But Still Be Smart About It

I’ve stopped worrying about every little expense and my travels are much better because of the change. I don’t stress over every decision. I don’t spend hours figuring out travel plans when a simpler plan that is a little more expensive is available.
