Holiday safety tips

Everyone needs a holiday, but often robbers and burglars also abuse this period of time. Here are some tips for those who are going on holiday:

If you are going away on holiday, ensure all your external house doors and gates are locked and your windows closed. Switch off unnecessary switches such as those linked to the television.

Switch off your geyser and do not leave lights on. Rather install a timer if you are able to. Remember to activate your alarm system. If you do not have an alarm system, have one installed if you can.

Remember not to inform a lot of people that you are going away. Instead, tell someone you trust and also inform them when they should expect you back.

A number of people draw large sums of cash during the festive season. Rather swipe one of your bank cards while shopping instead. If you have to draw cash, be aware of your surroundings. If you see something suspicious at the ATM, rather use another one.

Shopping centres are busy at this time of year. While you may be in a rush to finish your shopping, you must be alert at all times. Keep a close eye on your belongings. Ensure your vehicle is locked.

Always be alert while driving. Watch that you are not being followed. Be vigilant when stopping at traffic lights or stop streets. If you suspect that you are being followed, go to the nearest police station or to a busy area. Also remember to keep all valuables in the boot. Keep your doors locked and windows closed. You should also leave ample space between you and the car in front of you in order to escape, should you need to.

Also remember to pay close attention to your surroundings when close to your house. If you see something suspicious, rather drive away instead of stopping at your house. Do not stop on highways or areas that look unsafe.
