Holiday Travel Season

Dr. Seuss
Don't get grinched like
Cindy Lou did.
It's getting close to the season of hustle and bustle, when people make holiday plans and travels. This is also when scammers and thieves are out on the prowl, too. When planning out the details of your holiday travels, ensure you include appropriate security measures to prevent the Grinch from sneaking up on you and ruining your cheer. To remind you to be security minded, we did a travel round up of some of our past posts.
In 2011, AAA projected over 91 million Americans traveled during the holiday season, which means there were are a lot of vacant homes for burglars to choose from. In our Home Security While You're Away post, you can read six simple tips in keeping your home and valuable safe while you're away.
Another thing to think about with all these travelers and shoppers transporting gifts for loved ones, vehicles are going to be cram packed with treasured valuables. A great target for thieves! Traditionally auto thefts spike during the December-January timeframe. Check out our Prevent Vehicle Break-Ins post to learn five easy steps to reduce your risk of a vehicle break-in.
If your travels have you staying overnight in any hotel, don't fall victim to the scam featured in our Phone Scam Targeting Hotel Guests postThis scam is still circulating.
