Things you may want to leave at home before traveling:

  • Social Security Card
  • Library Card
  • Voter Registration Card
  • Credit Cards that you do not intend to use on your trip.
  • Jewelry
  • Any items of sentimental value or items that can not be replaced.

Other things to leave at home, office, or with family:

  • Copy of your passport
  • Copy of your travel documents
  • Copy of any credit or bank cards, front and back, that you intend to take with you.  *Keep card contact information with you in case you need to call in a lost or stolen card.*

You will be glad you did this if your wallet/passport leaves your possession.
