These simple hotelvaner can be REALLY expensive

Thousands of danes enjoying at the moment the autumn holiday during the warmer climes to the south, but it is not always the only happy holiday memories and the souvenirs we drag home with us from the trip.

If you are one of them, which of practical reasons push your suitcase under the bed, so there is more room to romp in the hotel room, or you f.ex. likes to throw your clothes on top of the hotelsengen, so you can indeed get to carry a good game of bloodsucking ticks home to Denmark, which can quickly prove to be a really expensive affair.

It alerts the insurance company IF about in a press release.

According to the company Anticimex, which deals with pest control, we are in a much higher degree prone to get bedbugs home with you in our homes, when we have stayed in just hotels or other rented housing.

There has been a marked growth in the number of cases of bedbugs at both hotels and at private in Denmark, and in fact is so glaring, that the development in recent years has risen from a few inquiries a month to several a week.

- the Increase is due, in particular, that people travel much more nowadays than in the past. The risk of getting bedbugs in the home are present everywhere - also on the really good hotels. And they're just widespread in Europe as in other parts of the world, for it is us the people who carry them around, explains Birgitte Ringbæk, the information manager in the If.

And it is certainly not the small wallet, you must have the above, if one drags the often 5-6 millimeter long bloodsucking bedbugs home with you, for according to the If can treatment easily cost about 50,000 dollars, and it is far from all insurance companies covering this cost.

it is Therefore advised If for even checking up on his resort before you book the journey, as well as to examine whether your insurance company covers in case of an accident.

- Check out other guests ' reviews on the web, and whether they have experienced any problems with bedbugs. The English word is bed bugs, says Birgitte Ringbæk, and continues:

Bedbugs are only the last 5-10 years been a problem at home. Therefore, taking many house or contents insurance still does not account for these pests. Our recommendation is quite clear, that the danes, who travel, in addition to a good travel insurance, check whether their insurance covers the treatment and cleaning for bedbugs.

Væggelusene typically come back home with you to be ended up in suitcases, bags or clothing on the resort. From here it spreads out in the home and hiding, where humans and animals reside, and come out to suck blood, when they need to eat.

below you can read, how do you minimize the risk of bedbugs while on vacation:

• Select a trunk of metal or hard plastic. It is less attractive for væggelusene to hide in.

• Place the suitcase in a safe place in your hotel room, for example on a kuffertholder or the like in the bathtub. The smooth surfaces make it difficult for væggelusene to get up there.

• Keep your luggage far away from the bed. Do not push the suitcase under the bed at the resort. Don't let your clothes and your suitcase lying on the bed.

• Check the bed for bedbugs. Check the mattress for reddish brown stains, there may be feces from bedbugs. You will find signs of attack, then contact the hotel staff.

• When you come home, you need to ensure that all the clothes you have had with, kept to themselves in the trunk or in a closed bag until it is washed.

• if you suspect bedbugs, should the suitcases and bags can be frozen, heat treated or thrown out. Is væggelusene first come into your bedroom, should help to from a skadedyrsbekæmper.
