Consider writing your postcode and/or phone number on valuables or on a note left inside your valuables with a UV pen or Permanent Marker, sure if it’s stolen someone will likely check this and remove it but if you drop it in the street/leave it on a bus etc someone may return it. Another tip is to have your Macbook / Laptop display a message with contact info so if it’s found by a nice person they can contact you, how-to guide here (Apple).
Make your luggage personal – this one we have first-hand experience of, we were hungover, we got home after travelling on a plane for 9 hours, we opened our suitcase to realise we had the wrong one 🤦♂️ The suitcase we thought was rather unique but it turned out it wasn’t, this was proved as the owner of the bag had our bag as well, luckily we managed to make contact with each other but the bag ended up 4 countries away and cost over £70 in courier fees to reunite back with us.

Put Airbnb on your phone for quick access whilst travelling. If you’ve never used it before, link a friend or family member who has so you can both vouch for each other. Also, download HotelsTonight and use code APETERSON75 – Both of these apps are great for last-minute emergency accommodation and having them both installed and registered with may remove some stress in a difficult situation.
We got sick and tired of seeing the public, our friends & family being exploited by fake deals, tricks and scammers. Using numerous tools, our dedicated staff and our large userbase we collate all the best genuine bargains, price glitches, profit-making ideas, scams, hidden tricks, freebies and ways to make, save & invest money in one place.
At 10ways we pride ourselves in showing as many alternative career paths, deals, glitches and ways to have more money as possible but we're not perfect and the information provided on our website/social media does not constitute financial advice, it's vital that you do your own research and realise you use the content on this website at your own risk and that we cannot accept any liability for your actions.
We often link to 3rd party websites and can't be responsible for their content. Many deals, offers & opportunities are time sensitive and may change before we notice, so whilst they're correct at time of publication they may have changed before we've had a chance to amend the website, so double check first.
We occasionally use affiliate links within some of our content, these links may generate a small income for us but their use never compromises the quality or content of our posts.
