Preparing to go

Tips so you can feel prepared for your holiday

  • Home security

    Lock all doors and windows, cancel newspapers and mail, and ask friends, family or neighbours to keep an eye on your home.

  • Lock up

    Secure all doors and windows. If possible, leave a light or radio on an electric timer.

  • Cancel deliveries

    Cancel newspapers, deliveries and mail so there is no obvious sign you are away.

  • Friendly help

    Tell neighbours when you are going and returning so they can keep an eye on your home.

  • Traffic check

    If you’re driving, check traffic with the VicTraffic app before you set off.  

  • Rest stops

    Plan rest stops and take turns at the wheel if you have several drivers.
