1. Avoid using expensive luggage that says “take me” this will only attract the unsavory characters
    2. Request a hotel room that is not on the ground level
    3. Leave the TV on (but respectful of the sound level for the of your neighbors)
    4. Use the hotel safe if there is was one
    5. Don’t share your location on social media (and be careful who you friend)
    6. Before booking a hotel room, check reviews on travel sites such as Trip Advisor and Google Maps.
    7. Hide your contact information INSIDE of your bag this will come in handy in the event your bag is lost and your exterior tag is lost/stolen.
