Do Not Carry Valuables for a Safe Spring Break

by Vincent D
(Bangalore, India)

Leave your valuables like expensive watches and jewelry at home. You don’t want to lose them and they can mark you as targets for thieves.

Research in advance when heading to a new destination so you know what to expect. Notify your credit card issuer in advance. Tell your credit card issuer when and where you’ll be traveling so if they see unusual activity on your
account, they’ll know why.

One of the ways that MasterCard issuers monitor for fraud is by detecting transactions that vary from your usual spending pattern. Your card issuer’s contact information can be found on
the back of your card.

Make a record of your passport and credit card information, including the contact number to reach your credit card issuer in case of emergency.

Keep this record in a safe and secure place away from your passport and credit cards (i.e., not in your wallet or purse). Also, leave a copy of this
information and your itinerary at home with a family member or close friend.

Secure travel insurance because accidents can happen. You should consider buying travel health insurance so that you don’t get stuck with
medical bills. It can be purchased through your travel agent who will give you information on what is covered.

Clean out your wallet by taking out everything but the essentials. The more items and pieces of information a thief gets, the more damage
they can do.
