Travel Advice -   Secure your transportation tickets                                         

Your airplane tickets are negotiable, financial documents and have a financial value, which may be appealing to thieves.

You should treat your tickets as you would money and keep them in a secure location until you need them at the airport for your next flight.

  • We advise you to store your tickets in your money belt and urge you to read our article Get Money Belts and be prepared to use them.
  • Do not store your tickets in the in-room hotel safe, as travelers often forget to clean out the safe.  Those who do remember, often grab their camera  or iPod but do not see the ticket in the back of the safe.


If you should lose your ticket, you will need to file a lost ticket claim that should eventually result in your being reimbursed for the ticket.

  • You will need to buy a new ticket for the intended flight and cover the cost of the ticket until the reimbursement arrives.
    • The purchase cost of the new ticket may be higher than your old ticket but the policy seems to vary between airlines. 
  • You will need identification to replace a ticket.
  •  You can speed up the process if you have a copy of the flight details and ticket Locator Reference Number of the lost ticket.

Your other transportation tickets or cards (train or bus passes) may, also, be attractive to thieves.

  • Practice keeping all negotiable travel documents in your money belt until you need to use them.
  • The added security of money belt use decreases the possibility of losing the tickets and experiencing the hassle when you do so.
