This are tips you should always adhere to when traveling.
Leave Your Itinerary with someone back home. Whether you’re single or have a million relatives, leave your travel itinerary with a colleague, friend or loved one. Include all the phone/ fax. Numbers and email addresses for your hotels and your flight schedules. Carry extra copies with you in case you lose it. It’s always a good idea to carry photocopies of your passport, photo I.D. and emergency contacts.
Extra security is never a bad thing
Never travel without a simple rubber door-stopper. It’s inexpensive, light to pack, and gives you peace of mind. The main door may not need it, but if there is an adjoining room, it might have a fairly flimsy lock, especially at older hotels.
Make sure you have a secure I.D. tag on all your luggage and carry-ons, including your laptop. Tape your business card to the bottom, with your cell phone number, in case you leave it at security, they can call you at the airport. Also, brightly colored tags or a colorful strap will make your black bag stand out from all the others. It’s a good idea to put your contact information INSIDE your bags, in case your tag goes missing or gets ripped off.
