It’s almost that time again, travel fans! Spring Break is quickly approaching, so you’re probably already well into the planning stages of your big trip this year. Whether you plan on spending time on one of the many beaches here in the Fort Lauderdale area, enjoying the wildlife in the nearby Everglades, or taking off on one of the many cruises that port here in Fort Lauderdale, we’ve got tips on how to ensure the safety of yourself and your belongings.
- If you’re taking a cruise vacation, maintain constant vigilance. There are often thousands of strangers on each cruise and while most are there to have a good time just like you, there is always a chance that someone might try to inflict harm upon you or your fellow travelers. Be sure to use the safe in your cabin to store your cash or valuables and travel around the ship with your friends, and never alone. If at any point you feel like you or other members of your group are in danger, do not hesitate to inform members of the crew.
- While the beaches in the Fort Lauderdale area are some of the most beautiful in the country, you need to have the same vigilance as we suggest for people traveling on a cruise. When the weather heats up, our beaches become one of the more popular vacation spots and become quite crowded. The days of being able to thwart criminals by putting your wallet in the toe of your shoe are long gone. We suggest making sure that there is at least one person keeping an eye over your belongings at all times.
- Wherever you go this spring, there’s a chance that alcohol will be served generously. Do not exceed your personal limits, especially if you are in an unfamiliar area with people that you don’t know. If you are on a cruise, do not be afraid to excuse yourself to your cabin if you feel like you have had too much to drink. If you are in the Fort Lauderdale area and need to get back to your hotel or home safely, do not accept rides from anyone who you feel has had too much to drink. When in doubt, call a cab. If you need a ride to and from your cruise ship location, you can add a free valet service onto your cruise ship parking reservation with FLL Park Safe!
- We have spoken before about how to prevent potential car break-ins and vehicle theft, but now that you’ve left your car in the safe hands of FLL Park Safe, you can focus on the aforementioned tips for making sure you have a safe and fun vacation.
