Criminals like targetting lone travellers at airports, who are carrying laptops. One of their methods is to follow the person to their hotel, and break into the vehicle whilst the person checks in at the hotel. We recommend hiring a sedan rather than a hatchback, so that goods can be more safely locked in the trunk/boot.
