Dutch flight attendant Esther revealed on her TikTok channel @esthersturrus that placing a shoe in the hotel safe is a very effective method to never leave the room without the passport or the valuable items stored in the safe. For the crew member, an item she would never leave without is her heels, as she needs them for work and only carries one pair.
“Worried about forgetting something from your locker? Put your heel or shoe in it and you won’t forget it!” she said.
However, it doesn’t have to be a shoe and holidaymakers can keep in the safe any item they think they wouldn’t leave the room without, such as a jacket or headphones.
A British Airways flight attendant, Ty Opoku Adjei, also revealed that she uses this hack every time she stays at a hotel.
The crew member explained that forgetting the passport in the hotel safe is actually very common.

She explained: “When we go on holiday, it’s natural to want to keep your valuables in the hotel room safe.
“But some people make it all the way to the airport only to realise they’ve left their passport in the safe.
“My top tip is to keep one of the shoes you plan to wear on your journey home in the safe.
“If you do this, you’ll never leave the hotel room without checking the safe ever again… as long as you don’t forget where you put your shoe, of course,” she told Business Insider.

A blogger and travel guru backed this up and shared on his TikTok channel @mr_planeguy: “If you use a hotel safe for your valuables, put the shoe that you will wear to travel home in also in the safe.
“Then you won’t leave your valuables behind. You are welcome!” he said and travel enthusiasts took to the comments section to share their thoughts with many praising the “good idea”.
One TikTok user said: “Why is this actually so genius”, but some commented that they would forget both “the passport and the shoe”.
“I’d have to put something more obvious like my keys or Airpods,” another social media user added.

CEO of the skincare company MUTHA, Hope Smith, commented on the TikTok trend and said: “If you’re wondering why I always lock a shoe in the safe now, you can ask Lauren, my assistant, who once had to fly all the way back to Italy to unlock the safe because of what I had left inside.
“Put your shoe in the safe right behind your jewellery so that when it’s time to pack and leave your hotel you never leave your valuables behind because you’ll always be looking for that second shoe.”
Catalonia Hotels explained that passports “are often left at the hotel safe where guests prefer its safety” and recommended “arriving a couple of hours earlier to the airports” which “will give you enough time to go fetch them back if you had left them”.
According to Catalonia Hotels, some of the most common items left behind in hotels rooms are:
- Mobile phones
- Underwear and beachwear
- Toys and tablets
