It's not enough to rely on hotels' security measures. Here, 7 hotel safety tips for the savvy traveller.

Travellers understand that reputable hotels do their utmost to ensure their guests' safety. However, as female guests, we can't rely simply on hotels' security measures. We, too, need to remain vigilant. It may be as simple as asking a hotel employee to park the car in the underground lot at night for you. Here, more tried and true ways to remain a savvy traveller.

Be social media-savvy

While it's fun to tell your friends on Facebook that you're enjoying a wonderful hotel stay, be sure that your settings don't allow thieves to be reading this information as well. The best way to ruin a holiday is to come back to a burglarized house. Save all your announcements and photo postings for when you are safely and soundly home.

Stay gender-neutral

When registering at a hotel online, keep your gender a secret. Skip the Ms. or Mrs. in front of your name. Register with your first initial and surname.
