Our tips to keeping your car key safe while on holiday in Devon

Decide on safe place to store the keys at your accommodation

Upon arrival at your holiday destination, choose a secure place to keep the keys when they aren’t in use, which is out of sight. Consider using a safe if available.

Don’t leave your keys unattended

Seems obvious but when you’re relaxed and in a holiday frame of mind, it’s easy to forget!

Attach a large & bright keyring

By doing this, you will make it easier to see your key, should you lose it in a bag or amongst luggage.

Don’t leave a keyless entry fob anywhere near where you park your car

If your car has keyless entry, ensure you keep your key fob away from where the car is parked to prevent thieves using a device known as a ‘relay transmitter’ to remotely access your car.

Use a ‘find my keys’ device

These lightweight Bluetooth trackers can fix onto your key ring so you can quickly track down your keys via your phone… provided you don’t lose your phone as well!

Top tip: Get a spare car key cut for your holiday!

Add ‘spare car key’ to your holiday checklist… and while you’re away, make sure another member of your family or group carries the spare key to avoid both being lost or stolen.
