Your travel security worries don’t end when you step out of the airport. One of the many travel nightmares is having their items stolen right inside their hotel or hostel room.

If you are staying in a hotel and don’t have a safe, you can’t protect your valuables. Think of the money, jewelry, electronics, and fancy clothes you bring on vacation or business trips. You are running the risk of having a housekeeper rummage through your stuff and possibly take something out.

On the other hand, locking your valuables in your suitcase will significantly decrease the risk of having your items stolen.

If you are staying in a hostel in a shared room, the urgency of keeping your bags and items safe increases. As almost all hostels provide their clients with a locker, you can hide your valuables, bag, or suitcase there and lock it up with your luggage lock.
