The Summer Travel Surge

As millions of people set out on their summer vacations, the roads and skies become bustling with activity. According to AAA, over 100 million Americans travel during the summer months. Unfortunately, this increase in travel often correlates with a rise in accidents and theft. In fact, the FBI reports that burglaries spike by approximately 10% during summer, making it crucial to take extra precautions.

Why A Jewelry Appraisal is Essential

Traveling with valuable jewelry can be risky. Losing a precious piece, whether through theft or accidental damage, can turn a delightful trip into a distressing experience. Here’s why getting your jewelry appraised before you travel is a smart decision:

  1. Accurate Insurance Coverage: An appraisal provides a precise valuation of your jewelry, ensuring that your insurance policy covers its full worth. Without an appraisal, you might find yourself underinsured, leading to significant financial loss in case of theft or damage.

  2. Proof of Ownership: In the unfortunate event of a loss, an appraisal serves as proof of ownership and value, facilitating quicker and more effective insurance claims.

  3. Peace of Mind: Knowing that your jewelry is adequately insured allows you to enjoy your vacation without the constant worry about your valuables.

Protect Your Valuables: Travel Tips

While an appraisal and proper insurance coverage are crucial, there are additional steps you can take to protect your valuables during your summer travels:

  1. Use Hotel Safes: Always store your jewelry in the hotel safe when not in use. Avoid leaving valuables in your room unattended.

  2. Discreet Storage: Carry your jewelry in discreet, anti-theft travel bags rather than flashy cases that draw attention.

  3. Minimal Wear: Consider wearing less valuable pieces during your travels and leaving the more precious items securely at home.
