Before you go:
- Research basic information about your destination
- Leave a copy of your itinerary with a trusted family member or friend
- If you’re driving, give your car a check-up and review your auto insurance

At the airport:
- Never leave your bag unattended
- Don’t accept any packages from strangers
- Report any suspicious activities
