Unfortunately, we can be at risk of having our stuff stolen in any corner around the globe, and with that in mind, we have to increase our level of awareness. The police statistics have found that over 6,000 thefts per day were committed in the gorgeous Barcelona alone, which is a very scary number!
So since we don’t really want to end up left in the strange country with no money or documents, we have to follow a few simple rules to guarantee a great vacation and a fantastic time anywhere in the world.
Pick the right floor in the hotel

Many people don’t really care about the floor where their hotel room would be. They mostly depend on the view, the room, and the price. But according to security experts, you need to pay attention to the floor as well, and it is best to be on the 3rd to 6th floors.
Burglars will find it easy to go in and out of your room when it is in a lower or extremely higher floor. So settle for the best and book your hotel room in the middle of the building where all your money, clothes, jewelry would be safe. Plus, you will still be getting a nice view, and most definitely, a beautiful room.
Be careful when it comes to details
Just like you do at home, be careful before you leave your hotel room. Check if the balcony and windows are perfectly locked, as well as the door.
For centuries, thieves have been using the method of jumping into the room from balconies and windows, so we have to be a lot more aware when it comes to it.
