Thank you First Alert for sponsoring this post. Know CO!
Carbon Monoxide leaks can happen at hotels, vacation rentals and even at private homes. That is why we bring our First Alert Portable CO Alarm along on our family adventures!
We love to travel and we often find ourselves spending the night at a wide array of accommodations in different countries from vacation rentals and Airbnb’s to small hotels. There’s no way for us to know if the places we stay at get regular maintenance check-ups.
What is carbon monoxide poisoning
Known as the silent killer, carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless deadly gas. CO can be produced by any fuel-burning device from a gas stove, heater to a furnace, a chimney or even a dryer vent. The only way to detect CO is with a CO alarm. You can learn more about carbon monoxide here.
Why you should travel with a CO alarm
There’s no way of knowing if the places where you’re spending the night when you travel have a gas leak. Accidents happen and gas leaks go unnoticed. Even if you give your devices at home regular maintenance a CO leak could still happen and the only way to find out is to have a CO alarm. Many of the places we stay at have gas stoves and gas water heaters. Traveling with the First Alert portable CO alarm gives me peace of mind I need so I can focus on enjoying our family adventures.
Having a CO alarm at home is a great idea but traveling with one is even more important. If you’re spending the night at vacation rentals, AirBnBs, small hotels or hostels in the US and in other countries there’s no way of knowing if these places have regular maintenance checkups. The possibility of there being a CO leak is greater, especially if traveling overseas.
The First Alert Portable CO Alarm can detect poisonous CO leaks. It provides an early warning so that you can get yourself and your family safely away from the leak.
Why First Alert portable CO alarm
First Alert’s portable CO alarm is perfect for traveling. With a convenient size, I can pack it my luggage or day pack. And because it doesn’t require any type of installation I use it at home all the time. I just grab it and take it with me when I travel. Once we get to our destination I can just put it on a table, no installation needed.
First Alert portable CO alarm has a 10-year battery life, so I don’t have to worry about changing the batteries. After 10 years, you will hear an end of life warning, letting you know it is time to replace the alarm.
It’s stylish design goes well with everything. And it’s so easy to read. It has a backlit digital display that shows temperature and peak levels of CO (when detected).
Traveling with our First Alert Portable CO alarm gives us peace of mind. I love that we can be adventurous and stay at unique accommodations near of far and always feel safe from carbon monoxide poisoning.

How to feel at ease, a great way to rest easy!
This is such a smart thing to do. I have one of these and I will start bringing it when I travel.
We travel a lot, but I never thought to bring one with me. I will for sure be getting one to add to my travel bag so we will have peace of mind from here on out on our trips!
This is SO GREAT! What a great safety tip!
I love staycations and I normally check everything upon check in. If there’s anything I find questionable, I ask to change rooms but I’ve never really thought of this.
Whoa! I never thought about this. we also travel quite a lot throughout the year but never really considered the Carbon monoxide in hotel rooms. Nice reminder to have this CO alarm.
This portable alarm is something new and interesting to me. Carbon monoxide is quite harmful and this device seems a nice protection against it.
I never really think about carbon monoxide poisoning. This would be great to have. I will definitely have to buy one soon for sure!
im amazed how informative this is, i got a lot of ideas that i might use, thanks for sharing
I’ve never really thought about carbon monoxide poisoning while traveling, but this is such a great idea! I prefer air Bnb and bed and breakfasts, so this would be especially important there!
This is such a necessary tool. I’ve heard too many stories about people succumbing to CO poisoning while they are traveling. You really don’t know if the place you are staying is up to code.
Hold up! I never thought to carry one with me. I will without a doubt be getting one to add to my movement sack so we will have genuine feelings of serenity starting now and into the foreseeable future on our excursions. On the off chance that there’s anything I find flawed, I request to change rooms yet I’ve never truly thought of this.
