Auto Home Business Life

Recently Safeco Insurance blogged an article about things to do before leaving home when you are traveling. 
Here are a few favorite tips to help you plan before you travel. 
1. Create a list of things to check just before leaving your home. 

Have you turned down the water heater? Are all the windows locked? These may seem obvious, but it's easy to forget something simple in the rush of getting out the door to catch your flight. Nobody wants to learn that their house was burglarized while they were out of town. This news would be especially unwelcome while relaxing on a beach in Brazil.

2. Talk to an insurance agent to see what coverage applies to you while traveling. 

At home or on the road, personal property coverage can come standard with home or renters insurance policies. Check with a professional insurance agent at Pritchards and Assiocates. This means the things you take with you on your trip may be covered. As a precaution, consider documenting the items you are bringing with you on a trip. Perhaps lay out your clothes, books, and personal belongings and take a picture. This way, if the unexpected happens, the claim process will be short.

3. Finally, remember that planning for your personal safety is paramount while traveling.

Leave an itinerary with a trusted friend or family member so that you can be contacted in the event of an emergency. If traveling outside of the U.S.. consider packing an emergency low-minutes international phone card even if you have a cell phone. Additionally, consult resources such as the US Bureau of Consular Affairs to find useful information for ensuring you are traveling safely and consider signing up for their Smart Traveler Enrollment Program .   

Happy travels to you and your family!
