I was perusing the Women Travelers board on FlyerTalk this morning, and read a lengthy discussion about travel safety for women. Most of the requests the posters had are very similar to mine , but there was one new one that I hadn’t heard before that jumped out at me.
Whenever I am checking in and the front desk person asks me, "How many keys?" I always say, "Just one." It never occurred to me (until this morning) that by saying that I was broadcasting to anyone in the lobby that I am a female traveling alone. So, from now on, I am going to say, "Two keys please!" And I recommend that you all do the same.
