1. Be security conscious

We often take it for granted that once we're in our hotel room we're safe. It's our very own personal space and a simple Do Not Disturb sign is all that's needed to keep the rest of the world out.

2. Hotel-room hygiene


3. Review your expenses


4. Collect your souvenirs


5. Do a sweep of your suite, including the bathroom

Are you the paranoid type who is constantly double-checking to ensure your phone is in your bag? The minute it is out of sight, you search every conceivable pocket. Or perhaps you have experienced that mind-numbing sensation at the airport as you realise you've left something crucial in your hotel room, with your boarding-time breathing down your neck. Or worse yet, you make the discovery at home when you're about to brush your teeth - utterly convinced you re-packed your toothbrush.
