    I'm so glad you started this thread! I need to compile a list of tips and pass them out to my guests. I would hate for anyone to have something of value stolen.

      I found these on Ebay: waterproof wallets and passport holders.

          Diversion Safe, Diversion Safes, Can Safe, Can Safes, Water Bottle Safe, Brief Safe, Underwear Safe, In-Home Security

          Some of these could work for smaller items. (money, rings, etc) Not the pop cans or any bevaerage containers because cleaning staff could mistake them for garbage & throw them out... but the hairspray can or shaving cream can (or dirty undies like someone already posted! lol) could work!

          My friend has actually purchased one of these "vacation vaults" but I'm not sure how it went. She planned on bringing it to the pool in her beach bag with her & leaving it in her suitcase in the room.

            Hmmm...good thread. I've always trusted the hotel safes, but now I am not so sure. I also usually lock my luggage up and then lock the suitcase to the dresser/chair or refrigerator handle. Technically they could get into the suitcase by either cutting the lock or damaging the suitcase, which in that case could prove that someone got in there. Would you trust this more than the safe?

            Wedding rings are a concern too especially because mine is white gold and therefore can't go in the pool (chlorine makes the gold brittle). I'll keep an eye on this thread for any good tips.

              Does anyone know if the room safes have a spot to put your own lock on?? I have never looked before...

                    One of the PP asked if there is a difference between combo locks and key locks? Does anyone know which one is safer? I think I'm going to be adding locks to my OOT bags. Plus, what about the water-proof containters from OT? Are they really waterproof?

                      Just a thought - Maura and I had dinner the other night, and got to talking about this. While I agree that you shouldn't trust your safe, you SHOULD put something in there. If they decide to break into the safe, and there's nothing in it, you can bet they are going to start going thru the room.

                      So, leave some money and some costume jewelry, maybe an ancient camera or something.
