A former flight attendant has shared the tricks she uses to make sure she’s safe when staying in a hotel. Nassim used the hacks while working and now uses them while vacationing abroad, reports the Express.
Nassim said: “When I first started flying I heard of a story where a crew member had walked into his hotel room and hadn’t checked it out properly and someone got in the way. was hiding in the room. They were attacked, so every time I got to a hotel room I would use my suitcase to keep the hotel door open.
“I then go inside and check everywhere. I check the bathroom, under the bed, inside the cupboards, under the table and behind the curtains to make sure no one is there. on the inside.
“I would never walk into a room without doing this
Nassim says if a hotel doesn’t have a chain on the door, she uses her suitcase again. She said, “I’d put my bag by the door in case someone opened it from the outside to make noise.”
Nassim also has other rules to ensure your safety in a hotel. She said: “I would also make sure never to get in an elevator with just one person and press on my floor. And make sure no one follows you to your room.
“If you don’t feel safe, wait in the lobby until they are gone. Only then go to your room, especially if you are alone.”
Nassim added: “I still wouldn’t put room service on my door to avoid someone coming in.”
She said: “I’ve also used the safes for my important documents and money. Always, always use it. I always leave my TV on so I feel like I’m in the room at any time.”
