Tips For A Safer Holiday Vacation

10 November

Hawaii is the place for a perfect holiday vacation. Whether you live on the islands or are planning your next holiday vacation, it is important you prepare carefully before you go. While Hawaii is one of the most remarkable vacation spots, you need to make sure you and your family are safe during your Hawaiian vacation. If you get severely injured or get involved in a situation that requires legal intervention, contact Hawaii catastrophic injury attorney Jed Kurzban.

Vacations are a special time to spend with your family and the perfect opportunity to erase your stress with family fun-filled time. Just make sure you secure your home before you leave and ask your neighbors to keep an eye on your property. You can have your mail delivery stopped. Also, keep away tools and patio furniture that can be used as tools to gain access to your home.

While at the airport, keep an eye on your luggage at all times. Remember airports are full of people. It is the perfect spot to steal valuable items. When going through security, put your laptop last. You don’t want it in the open for a long time. On the airplane, keep your carry-on bags always close.

Now that you have successfully arrived at your destination, don’t relax too much on safety. There are a few things you can do to stay away from danger:

  • Don’t share too much information on social media – This is not the time to post your whereabouts on every social network out there. Wait until you are back from your vacation to share a few pics. Remember the information published may be seen by unwanted eyes so make sure you think about how your post activity can be used by criminals to hurt you or your loved ones.
  • Tell your family and close friends – It is good to let your family know about your plans. Tell them when you are expecting to return.
  • Don’t carry your credit cards and cash at the same time – Only keep some cash with you. The rest leave it in a money pouch or in your hotel room.
  • Make a copy of your passport and leave the original in the hotel when going out sightseeing.
  • Keep the hotel door locked at all times and don’t answer the door to strangers.
  • Protect yourself from the sun – Use broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect yourself against radiation. Reapply sunscreen after swimming or any other outdoor activity. If you are taking medicine, ask your doctor as it may cause photosensitivity.
  • Water safety – Go to beaches supervised by lifeguards and never leave your children unattended. If you are on a boat, wear a lifejacket. Don’t operate a boat or any other type of watercraft while under the influence.

Relax and have fun

Never let your fear keep you from having a great time with your family. Be cautious but don’t overdo it. As long as you are doing everything you need to ensure everyone’s safety, you should be fine. Things can go wrong when traveling but this is what we are here for, to ensure you and your family are protected during a catastrophic accident.
