LINCOLN, R.I. - There is still time to go on vacation this summer, so Amica Insurance is sharing some tips to help protect your belongings wherever you go.

According to the FBI, victims of property crimes, excluding arson, suffered losses of an estimated $14.3 billion in 2015. Amica suggests the following when going on vacation:

  • Avoid bringing large amounts of cash on the trip. Using one or two credit cards or travelers’ checks is a safer option.
  • Leave valuable jewelry, electronics or collectibles at home.
  • Label each piece of luggage, inside and out, with your name, address and telephone number.
  • Keep cash, credit cards, passports and airline tickets in the hotel safe, and make sure the hotel door is always closed securely. If you must carry cash or credit cards, inside pockets and shoulder bags across the chest are the safest places to store them.
