The weather is getting warmer, and travel is picking up! Whether you're road-tripping across the country, going on a weekend getaway, or exploring abroad, it's essential to prioritize your personal safety. It's important to be aware of your surroundings and take steps to protect yourself and your belongings while away from home.

First, research your destination beforehand. Familiarizing yourself with the area can help you avoid potentially dangerous situations and stay safe. If you're traveling solo or with friends, share your location with trustworthy people. If traveling with friends, this will help ensure no one gets lost on their own!
Second, whether it's a hotel or Airbnb, secure your home base area. You want to make sure you and your belongings are safe to sleep comfortably, knowing you are protected. Bring along the Door Stop Alarm or Door Handle Alarm to add peace of mind.
These compact alarms are perfect for packing in your carry-on. They are easy to install and don't require any extra tools. The door stop alarm slides under the door and will alert you with a 120 dB siren if an unwanted person tries to open the door. The door handle alarm will hang on the outside handle and alert you with a 110 dB siren if someone tries to open the door from the outside. Feel comforted knowing you have taken steps to add more protection to your room.
In addition to keeping peace of mind while sleeping, you want to make sure you're keeping peace of mind while out and about! Traveling is supposed to be relaxing. Keep your mind at ease by bringing a personal safety alarm along. If you're flying, you can take one in your carry-on, making it the perfect travel accessory. Attach the 2-in-1 Personal Alarm with LED Light to your purse using the snap clip keychain so you can easily reach for it while exploring. Activate this alarm by either pulling the keychain or pressing the side button. Once the alarm is triggered, it will sound a 130 dB siren to help draw the attention of bystanders up to 1,250 feet away. The sound and attention from others may deter a would-be attacker.
Finally, trust your gut when it comes to personal safety. If a situation doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Don't hesitate to leave if you feel unsafe or threatened. Continue to stay alert and aware of your surroundings.
Prioritizing personal safety when traveling is crucial. If you do your research and trust your instincts, you are setting yourself up to have a safe and enjoyable trip. So, make sure to pack your personal safety items, and don't forget to have fun!
