Clever ways to keep your travel cash safe

The need to feel at home is one of the main requirements of clients when choosing a hotel in which to spend their holidays, but, above all, priority is given to personal safety and specially the personal objects left in the rooms.

Travelling is always a source of joy, excitement and curiosity for all that the destination to which you are travelling has to offer, but it is also true that it involves a lot of movement, a lot of luggage and, after all, a certain mental fatigue that usually disappears when you land and settle into your hotel. 

For this reason, the need to feel at home is one of the main requirements of clients when choosing a hotel in which to spend their holidays, but, above all, priority is given to personal safety and specially the personal objects left in the rooms. It is well known that it is not advisable to travel with full documentation, nor with a lot of money or valuables, although it all depends on the country you are travelling to.

Therefore, it is important to be aware of the different security measures available on the market today to keep your travel money safe. One such way would be to use high-security hotel safes as they usually have opening methods that can be by code, via the guest's smartphone or through an application and/or Bluetooth. It would be a matter of choosing a personalised method that best suits the needs of each guest so that the safe can only be opened if the client wishes; this is a good point to avoid the thieves. 

In particular, hotels and other places of accommodation must ensure the security of their guests and their personal belongings, so there are more and more possibilities and models of safes available on the market today. There are up to 5 electronic systems, 3 opening formats and 7 different sizes to suit the preferences of hotels (economic level, interior design, etc.). 

As mentioned above, there are different ways to open and close these safes, and among them the most used and secure would be the ones that are used with a personal Smartphone or with a personal and non-transferable code. One might think that these safes can be broken and forced open, but they are already made in such a way that it is practically impossible to force them open.

On the other hand, and regarding the different formats available, you can find from the most usual models such as the "Front Door", to the so-called "Silding Drawer" (pull-out a container), or the "Top opening", a model that presents different sizes and that differs from most of them because it has an opening system placed on the top cover of the safe. This model of safe would only open electronically and would be one of the most commonly used in hotels today as it fits perfectly with the design of hotels around the world.

Related to the last mentioned, it is important to note that the size of the high-security hotel safes varies according to the hotel's preferences, taking into account the type of client it intends to serve. There are 7 different sizes, each with a different name that refers to its storage capacity: Standard, Pad, Laptop 15, Laptop 17, Folder, Avant 15 and Avant 17. All of them can be found in different colors and designs.

Being able to find so many types of methods to ensure the safety of guests becomes one of the attractions of hotel rooms, especially in countries where tourism is abundant and where it could be dangerous not to have a place to store the most personal and valuable items you travel with (money, jewellery, personal documentation, etc.). For this reason, Omnitec Systsems offers a wide variety of safes for the hotels, among others, such as the electronic locks, which not only allow opening by means of the traditional hotel room card or key, but also by means of the Bluetooth opening system via Smartphone or by using a keypad to enter a code.

There is no reason not to travel and/or fear for the money that we can leave in the hotel room, since if the hotel has a security system such as those mentioned above, it will be almost impossible for any type of theft to be committed. Technology and security evolve hand in hand and every day new gadgets and methods are offered to guarantee the comfort and security of people.
