Your Pre-Vacation Checklist

You’ll enjoy your trip much more if you don’t have to worry about how things are going back home while you’re away. Use this checklist of tasks before you travel. It can help give you peace of mind while you’re gone.

•  Take care of any maintenance problems before you leave to prevent serious damage while you’re gone.

•  Leave a house key with a neighbor, family member, or friend. Ask them to check your house both inside and out while you’re gone.

•  If you’re going to be away for a month or more, contact your creditors and ask about arranging for your bills to be paid on schedule.

•  Leave a copy of your itinerary and the name of your airline and flight numbers with family or friends, so they can locate you in the event of an emergency.
