Hotel Room Theft

Surprisingly, hotel theft statistics are difficult to find. We know anecdotally that hotel theft happens, but actual numbers to quantify how many thefts, when, and where they occur are scarce. 

What is essential to know is that having a safe in your hotel room is the best way to keep your precious items safe from theft or harm during your stay.

Travel around your destination without bulk

A hotel room safe keeps your valuables safe until your return - you can travel light, only bringing the necessities with you. Having fewer items on your person reduces the burden of carrying multiple bags with you everywhere you go. Less weight to carry means you can transport from site to site hassle-free.

Some travel destinations are safer than others. Pick-pocketing and bag theft are more common in some areas, and you need to prepare for something going awry. Carry only the essentials with you, tucked away from view, and reduce or eliminate the need for purses or bags. Travel with less worry in these higher-risk places by leaving valuables in the safe in your hotel. 

By traveling to your destination with only the necessities, you will be less of a target for theft. You can feel at ease knowing anything extra is safe within the safe in your hotel room.

Today's hotel safes

Many of the safes used in hotel rooms today are traditional lock and key safes or use a PIN to gain access into the safe. The safes are mid-sized, with room for small to medium sized valuables. The safes also have backup access options in case the hotel guest forgets the PIN or loses the key. 

While these safes can keep your belongings protected, they run the risk of being hacked by those trying to steal valuables while you are enjoying your time at the pool. 

Lock and key safes run the risk of lock picking. The safes kept in a hotel complex are usually the same in each room. This means that if someone figured out how to lock pick one, they could lock pick them all. 

PIN codes present another issue. They have to be reset by the hotel management, not you. This means if you forget your PIN or for for some reason your PIN doesn't work, you have to wait for staff to come open it for you. In a busy hotel, this could take some time. If you are trying to make a dinner reservation and your credit card is in the safe, waiting for staff to unlock your safe could mean major inconvenience for you.
