Whether you’re traveling domestically or internationally for business or pleasure, you definitely want your luggage to make it in the same condition it was when you left. No one likes to arrive with nothing to wear, let alone the hassle of filing complaints with airlines. And who wants to begin their trip shopping for their damaged or missing items?
Luckily, we here at Boston Coach have come up with ways to keep your belongings from being ruined.
- Packing Tips
Wrap your item in clothes that you’re already planning on packing to give it some padding or use bubble wrap. Wear your valuable jewelry or pack them in your carry-on. Always store expensive camera equipment in your carry-on to avoid having it damaged during your flight. Camera monopods, tripods, and film are all allowed in carry-on bags.
- Be Aware of Your Surroundings
If you’re planning on bringing your camera, video camera or any other valuable items with you while you’re sightseeing, make sure you keep it within reach at all times, whether that’s around your neck, in your hand or in a bag worn in front of you, not behind you. It’s best not to wear your expensive jewelry while you’re out and about in unfamiliar countries to avoid being pickpocketed or robbed. Paying close attention to your surroundings will help keep your personal belongings, and most importantly, you safe.
- Store Your Valuable Items|
When it comes to jewelry while traveling, less is more. Consider storing your valuables in the hotel safe. Storing items and money in your pockets is a big no-no when it comes to international travel – pickpocketing is one of the most common theft crimes that travelers fall victim to. Only keep money on you that you’ll need that day and store the rest in a personal, mini-safe.
