 TAKE PRECAUTIONS: No matter where you go on holiday the ungodly will be waiting. Leave nothing of value visible in your parked car. Image: Shutterstock ~ Shutterstock
 • Remain alert to any areas that might present a threat of criminal activity such as hijackings and smash-and-grab.

 • Always place your valuables in the boot of your car and never leave items such as cellphones and wallets in open sight, unattended, or on the seat of a car.

 • If you're going to park long-term - say at an airport - empty your glove box and other visible lidded boxes of valuable and put them in the boot. Leave the lids open to show opportunistic thieves that your car isn't worth the effort of a break-in.
