Keep one set in your carry-on suitcase and give the other set to a trusted family member or friend not going on the trip. Scan your documents and securely store an electronic copy.

Of the 3 storage methods, the last—uploading copies to a secure server—offers the highest level of security. You never know what could happen to your luggage when you travel.

That way you'll be ready to enjoy whatever adventures lie ahead.
