The holiday season is just around the corner – and so are the people who are looking to take advantage of your time away from home.
I’ve run into a few tech products, though, that have proven to be great finds for when you choose to skip town.
Do you know how easy hotel and airbnb safes can be accessed? The answer is traveling with a FlexSafe Portable Travel Safe and securing it along with my valuables to the closet bar.
Where do you put your valuables when you are traveling? No more getting robbed at the pool, beach, water park or on a cruise…the FlexSafe is a patented Slash Resistant portable safe that became famous for the way it locks on to your lounge chair so you secure your valuables while going for a swim.
Now travelers are using the FlexSafe in hotel rooms and AirBnb rentals by latching it to the closet rod. It’s becoming a great alternative to the built-in room safes that can easily be accessed.

With password protection and hardware encryption you can even import content from your social media and cloud accounts onto it. Available in 5TB, 4TB, 2TB and 1TB starting at $59.99.
You go into an Airbnb or a hotel, you can put this device over the lock while you’re inside to feel more secure (since there’s likely to be more than one key to the place). It slips into an existing door lock, and works on almost every standard door. Available on Amazon
