Summer Vacation Safety: A Little Planning Goes a Long Way

We love it here in Delaware Valley, but summertime is the time for getting away! And whether your escape is by air, land or sea, McKeighan Insurance Agency, Inc. can help ensure you are covered.
Just because you’re on vacation, though, doesn’t mean you can stop thinking about safety. These tips will help you and your family get the most out of your trip and help you get back home safe and sound.

Does my insurance come on vacation with me?
This is a common question here at McKeighan Insurance Agency, Inc. Here are some brief answers. Call us at 610-355-9400 if you have more specific questions.
AUTO: In most instances, your personal auto policy liability coverage will extend to your rental car. However, give us a call at 610-355-9400 so we can discuss your specific situation. Be sure to mention if you’re traveling out of state or internationally, as that could impact your coverage.
HOME: If you rent a vacation property, your homeowners coverage may apply in certain situations. Personal items you take on vacation generally are covered, but again, give us a call at 610-355-9400 so we can discuss your specific policy and coverage.

Before You Leave Home
• Secure your home, and don’t leave a house key hidden outside. Ask a friend or neighbor to pick up your mail and newspaper and help with yard maintenance. This, along with timers for some household lights, will make it look like your house is occupied.
• Tell a friend or neighbor about your itinerary and how to reach you in case of emergency.
• The Privacy Rights Clearinghouse (PRC) recommends using caution when posting on Facebook or other social media websites. You don’t want everyone to know you’re on vacation!

Remember, just a little extra emphasis on safety can make a big difference in how memorable your vacation will be.
