Secrets to Safe Travel

safe travel

Safe travel is a priority for anyone who leaves home. We know how important you are to your friends and family, and we work hard to ensure you are always safe with our Chicago airport shuttle chauffeurs. Our chauffeurs are well-trained, highly qualified, and we make sure you are always our number one priority when you are in our care. Unfortunately, we aren’t with you every step of your journey into our city or any other, which means you must learn the secrets to staying safe while you travel. It’s important to you and to all the people you love.


Hire a Car Service

This is safe for several reasons. A Chicago limo service such as ours keeps you safer when you are on the road because our drivers know these roads. If you’re not from here, you’re automatically a distracted driver relying on navigation, sight-seeing, and navigating roads and traffic you’re unfamiliar with. We aren’t saying you are a bad driver, but you are a more dangerous driver when you’re nervous, driving a car that’s not yours, in a location you don’t know well. Hire a car service like ours to get you to and from your locations, and you’ll feel safer. It’s also far safer to be with us than out by yourself at night or lost in certain neighborhoods.


Make it A Group Thing

Being out after dark on the streets anywhere is dangerous, but it’s especially dangerous when you’re alone. Make your nighttime excursions a group thing, or get a ride. You become an easy target when you’re alone, and you attempt to navigate unfamiliar streets at night without anyone guiding you.

Keep Your Hotel to Yourself

If someone asks you where you’re staying, you don’t have to tell them. You can keep that information to yourself without sounding rude, but you can’t always keep that information to yourself if you’re in the elevator. The best thing you can do is keep your room number private, and never flash your key. If you feel uncomfortable in the elevator with someone, go back to the lobby and ask the concierge to have security escort you to your room. Never get off on your floor if you feel something in your gut while with someone else on the elevator.


Check In

One of the best ways to stay safe when you travel is to have someone you’re checking in with regularly at home. Schedule a time to call or text each night, and be sure you send a good morning text each morning. When someone expects to hear from you and doesn’t, they know immediately something is wrong and can notify the proper authorities.

Your safety is paramount, and being aware of how you can stay safe while you travel is one of the most important things you can do. Don’t play games with your life when you travel. Know where you go, where you are going, and utilize the services offered by professionals to keep you safe.
