Why You Should Always Keep One Shoe in Your Hotel Safe

Carole Garnham from Go4iT Travel - Carole Garnham

Love this idea that I recently came across so thought I would share!

When it comes to stashing stuff securely in hotel rooms, a safe can be a traveler’s best friend. But for those for whom a secret stash turns into a lost item, one member of BA cabin crew has offered a top tip: travelers should keep one of the shoes they plan to wear on the return flight in the safe.
When it comes to staying in hotel rooms with personal valuables, somewhere safe is usually somewhere out of sight. But when it comes time to go home, this tactic can sometimes backfire; after all, as the old adage goes, out of sight is, of course, out of mind.
For those prone to losing their valuables, one British Airways (BA) cabin crew member offered travelers her top tip on how they can keep track of their belongings during the course of a hotel stay.
Speaking to Business Insider late last year, Ty Opoku Adjei said, “When we go on holiday, it’s natural to want to keep your valuables in the hotel room safe.” She added that it wasn’t unknown for some travelers to “make it all the way to the airport only to realize they’ve left their passport in the safe.”
Adjei explained, “My top tip is to keep one of your shoes you plan to wear on your journey home in the safe. If you do this, you’ll never leave the hotel room without checking the safe ever again… as long as you don’t forget where you put your shoe, of course!”
