  • Always keep your items on you or store them in a safe in your accommodation. By keeping your items secure or on your person, you significantly reduce the chances of them being stolen or damaged.
  • Invest in protection for your items. A sturdy cover and screen protector can go a long way in preventing accidental damage while on holiday.
  • Backup your data. Before you leave for your trip, make sure to create a digital backup of all your information.

  • Remember your chargers. Double-check that you’ve packed all your chargers in your hand luggage before heading to the airport.
  • Be cyber safe. Cybersecurity is just as important as physical security while on holiday. Check out our cyber security tips for travelers.
