Placing your passport in a sealed flexible plastic type container that is water proof/resistant with your e-mail address & the statement inside the plastic pouch "REWARD if RETURNED".
Having your hotel itinerary and mobile number would assist in the tracking.
Remember, the PASSPORT may need to be delivered to an EMBASSY via air-mail to your next point of travel.
