Steal Trap "Our bags have been stolen twice from inside locked rental cars. Now we travel with a bicycle cable and lock. If we absolutely have to leave our suitcases in the car, I hook them together by the handles and attach the whole thing to the car frame. Even if thieves manage to get in, the cable will slow them down." —Karen McCarty, McCall, Idaho Budget Travel Saturday, May 3, 2008, 9:00 AM Budget Travel LLC, 2016
