Better Safe Than Sorry "If you have an early flight, it's a smart idea to make sure your hotel-room safe is unlocked before going to sleep. Recently, the evening before departure we tried to open our room safe (which contained passports and other valuables), but it wouldn't budge-and the receptionist had no idea of the code to unlock it! If we had waited until the morning, we never would have made our flight." —Sandra DeGroot, Grand Haven, Mich. Budget Travel Friday, Jun 27, 2008, 9:00 AM Budget Travel LLC, 2016
