When you are travelling and staying in a hotel with some extra cash, you have this fear of getting mugged. You search for places to hide money in your hotel room while you are out sightseeing.
Now the problem is, “Where is that place which is easily approachable to you.
A few tips will help you hide your personal belongings in a hotel room.
You have to check out the drapes on your room’s window. See if they are made of thick fabric, with a hem sewn along the bottom? If the hem is open at the sides, then it is your way to go.
Slip some money as in noted into the fabric’s fold.
Now, the important part. Move back once you're done putting the notes into the fabric’s fold.
Are you able to see the outline of the money within the hem? If you can, the material is not thick enough to hide your dollars and you will need to put them somewhere else.
Hide money in your fridge within packets of food which no one's gonna eat. Make sure you don't put money in any chocolate box or something. You know why.
Also, you can buy a packet of crackers or sultanas and put the money at the bottom of the packs, under the plastic-wrapped food.
If you have a freezer, you could wrap your cash in a plastic bag and then hide it in a box of popsicles or within a tub of ice-cream.
Check for a small, internal, zipped pocket within your luggage and slide some of your money down into it.
Then place some off-putting items like dirty socks or muddy plastic bags above the money.
If you have a backpack with a metal frame, you may be able to slip some rolled-up cash behind the frame.
Although your luggage can be a good place to hide money because you are familiar with it, a thief is not.
A mattress is always a good option. However, you have to be very careful while doing that.
First, you have to check that the mattress has been changed. Now, hiding money under your mattress is safe but you have to make sure that room service people are not gonna take your mattress for a routine cleaning.
Also, make sure to lift the mattress as high as you can, and place the currency in the center (middle) of the bed, not at the corners because it is easily accessible for anyone.
