Even in a safe country like Luxembourg, housebreaking (or cambriolage en français) can occur, especially in the holiday period when residents leave their homes to travel. However, you can help the police help you!
Throughout the year, the Police of Luxembourg offers the service “Départ en vacances” in case of prolonged absence of the residents.
All you need to do is notify the police via an online form on this page, filling it in with your name, address and dates of departure and return for the holiday.
The Police will then keep an eye on your home, conduct occasional preventative patrols as part of their general surveillance, day and night, and make sure everything is in order.
Be sure to include this item on your travel checklist from now on so that your vacations can be a bit more relaxing 😉
