To ensure that your next vacation lives up to your expectations and that nothing detracts from these days of enjoyment you worked so hard for, think security.
Wherever you go, don’t leave without taking a few steps to give yourself peace of mind so that you can fully enjoy your well-deserved holiday.
Make sure you’re well insured!
Illness and accidents can strike at any time, and if you should fall ill or suffer a mishap while in a foreign country, you’ll be relieved to be able to count on private travel insurance. This protection would cover medical expenses not reimbursed by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec.
Do as if you were still at home!
While on vacation, ask a neighbour you trust to pick up your mail and to park their car in your driveway from time to time. This way, it won’t look like there’s nobody home. Notify your insurer that you will be away and give them the name and contact information of the person who will be looking after your home while you’re gone.
Cybersecurity: a must!
Social networks can be very practical, but if you use them, be sure not to share your travel plans on these sites or post photos of yourself taken in some far away land with your smartphone or your digital camera, as this will be an invitation for burglars to target your home. Similarly, it is best to delete messages from friends and family members mentioning that you are away.
