Hawaiʻi is one of the safest states in the country but like any destination, unpleasant situations can occur. Keep these general travel safety tips in mind for any vacation, including one to Hawaiʻi.
- INSURE YOUR HOLIDAY. Consider travel insurance for your Hawaiʻi trip. If you get into an accident and don’t have travel insurance, it can greatly affect your treatment options and end up very costly. While medical coverage is the biggest reason to get travel insurance, there are other benefits, including protection against travel delays, trip cancellations, loss of luggage, and more.
- DOCUMENT YOUR DOCUMENTS. Make copies of important trip-related documents, including your passport(s), driver’s license, and travel insurance. Leave this information with a friend or family member who is not traveling with you and email it to yourself for safekeeping. This way you can always access copies if you lose them.
- SECURE YOUR VALUABLES. Be as security-conscious in Hawaiʻi as you would be at home. Do not leave valuables unattended or in plain view in a hire car, on the beach, in restaurants, or in the hotel lobby. When you venture out for the day, only bring essentials with you. Leave valuables behind in a secure place at your accommodation (like the hotel safe).
