Summer Vacation: Five Ways to Help Insure a Fun Family Vacation
Several years ago, shortly after I met my fiance she went on a trip to Mexico with a group of friends. I remember it well because she was so excited to get away from me for a few days and relax in Mexico. She had been to Mexico before and even spoke Spanish so her comfort level was high.
That lasted for a good ten minutes after landing when she had her purse stolen. She was with her group waiting for a local bus to pick them up. They were all right in the main area of the airport with lots of people around. Maybe that was the problem. She had set her purse down for a split second and BAM- it was gone.
The local police could really do nothing. It wasnt until she got back a few days later did she realize the damage done. The thief had managed to charge $2500 to one of her credit cards in the matter of a few hours before she had the wits to call the credit card company. In just a few hours mind you. An expensive lesson!!
So when you get ready to go on your family vacation this summer remember that safety for you and your possessions starts before you leave home.
