Extra Hotel Security
Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Rob W., who says:
“For extra security, I leave a chair or my luggage jammed up against the inside of the door of my room each night. Maybe not so important in the major chains but in mid-tier and other boutique places, and in places like Central America and South America, it gives me added security. If there’s an attempted illegal entry into the room, I’m going to hear it and the obstacle might deter any potential intruder from taking it further by entering my room.”
As Rob says, there are places when this isn’t necessary, but added security is always a good thing—especially in unfamiliar places. Thanks Rob!
