How To Go On Vacation With No Stress

Work, kids, remote schooling, family, and of course, our homes all require attention before we can head to Topsail Island to kick back and relax. This week we will take a look at the best tips and tricks from the experts. You'll have the car packed and be on the way to Topsail Island in no time and without a care in the world. Let's get started. 

Purchase travel insurance

Travel Insurance is a great investment and the only way to protect your vacation. Wether you have a family emergency, lost luggage, or road side assistance travel insurance likely has you covered. Another important thing to consider is only travel insurance protects you from vacations that are cancelled due to severe weather.  When booking with Seashore Realty we'll offer you a comprehensive travel insurance plan.

Call your bank

As you know identity theft is on the rise. One of the easiest ways to prevent identity theft is to let your bank know your travel plans. By telling your bank about your plans the bank can be on alert for charges that seem out of ordinary. Many of the banks have text messaging and real time email alerts.

Stop the Paper, Packages & Mail 

A pile of Amazon packages and newspapers on your front door is like a billboard to would be thieves. Make sure to stop your paper and have your packages delivered to a neighbor or friend during your Topsail Island vacation. Just think it will be like Christmas morning when you come home to open all those packages. 

Don't come home to a surprise

Nothing is worse to coming home to a mess. Make sure to turn off your water, gas, ice-maker and other appliances that you don't need. Nothing is worse than coming back to a flooded home because a pipe burst or a water heater failed. 

Leave the lights on

Darkness is a criminals best friend. One of the simplest things you can do while away is to leave your lights on. If you don't have a remote access to control your lights have a neighbor come over and turn on the lights each night. Timers in the house also work well to rotate different lights on within the house. Another great idea is to leave a radio on to give the appearance there are people home. Simple, cheap and effective ways to protect your home. 

Don't post too much on social media

Social media is fun, but it does have a downside. Savvy criminals have been known to monitor social media posts to see when people are out of town. Just remember what you post is often easy for everyone to see including those with bad intentions.  Save your posts and updates for your return. After all, everyone loves seeing pictures of Topsail Island.
