Honeymoon and Destination Wedding Travel Safety


We realize that safety is a huge topic that comes up every year while our couples and destination wedding guests prepare to travel. Although the world may seem like a scary place through the eyes of the media, it doesn't have to be. Keeping common sense and your wits about you is of key importance. Here are some helpful travel safety tips to follow no matter where you may travel.

BEFORE YOU LEAVE ON YOUR TRIP

We encourage travelers to purchase travel insurance that includes sufficient medical and evacuation coverage while traveling.

  • Ensure you have a password for all your mobile devices (create strong passwords and change them regularly). If possible, enable location tracking on your mobile devices and install "wiping" software so that you can track them and even delete all data if they are lost or stolen.

  • Avoid carrying all your credit and debit cards on a trip. Instead only carry a select few.

  • Keep a list of the phone numbers (both toll-free and direct) for your credit and debit cards, your insurance company, and other important sources so that you can alert them if something happens on your trip. Also, consider sending our travel agency a copy of your passport picture page to store for you in case it is lost. This will help expedite getting a new one.

  • Leave a copy of your travel itinerary with a friend or family members.

  • Stop any mail and parcel deliveries before departure.

  • Don't bring expensive jewelry. Many couples I know including myself even wear "travel/costume jewelry" that we aren't not worried about losing. I even have my own travel ring - which is similar to my wedding ring that I can wear on vacation, with cubic zirconia stones.

  • Bring your own travel mug with a lid, and never leave it unattended.
