Most of us are probably itching to get back to traveling. It’s one of the things I miss most about life pre-COVID – just being able to purchase plane tickets on a whim and go somewhere for a week.

But with the world slowly starting to reopen, we can live in hope that pretty soon we’ll be experiencing the joys of traveling.


Along with traveling comes the task of picking a place to stay. There are an array of different types of accommodations, from Airbnbs to luxury hotels to budget hotels and everything in between.

No matter what type of accommodation you stay in, if you’re a crime junkie like me, then the first thing you probably think about when checking in, is personal safety. No one wants to end up the subject of a true-crime podcast.

On TikTok, there is one woman, Allie Lovegood, who came out with a video where she shared some important hotel safety tips. These can easily be applied to whatever accommodation you’re staying in.

Most of the tips are how to check for two-way mirrors or hidden cameras, but she’s got a few others. They are definitely important ones to know, and Lovegood herself explains why.

The response to her video was overwhelmingly positive, with many people leaving comments thanking her for sharing the video. Others jumped on the bandwagon to share safety tips of their own or personal experiences, like one person who left the comment: “You can also buy a small portable travel alarm to put on the back of the door at night that goes off if opened. I used to travel alone for work.”

Regarding her video, Lovegood explained to Bored Panda that perhaps the most important piece of advice she can give to others is to always remain vigilant of one’s surrounds.

She stated, “Paying attention to other people’s behavior and mannerisms has allowed me to stay safe and leave quickly if I feel something is off.”
