Open Your Trunk Before Arriving
Following up on Tuesday’s tip about not leaving anything of value out in the open in your car (or rental car), here’s another reminder: Don’t park your car in a touristy place or a parking lot and then put all your valuables in the trunk. Do it before reaching your destination so you don’t draw the attention of potential thieves at the place you’ll be leaving your car.
You might not think it, but this lesson is often learned the hard way in Hawaii. I’ve heard too many stories about tourists rolling up to go hiking or swimming at a popular spot and putting all of their luggage in the trunk (or opening it to get something out of it). When they return, it’s all gone. Don’t make this mistake, in Hawaii or anywhere else!
