Concerned about keeping yourself safe while traveling? If you are traveling to Europe, pick pockets/ petty crimes are the most common crimes committed against tourists. But you don’t have to be a victim, if you prepare yourself adequately!! Here is where the infamous Money Belt comes in.
If you don’t have a safe in the apartment/ hotel you are staying in, consider keeping your important documents and cards on you at all times, in a money belt. This thin silky belt fits easily and comfortably under clothes (even skinny jeans ladies!!). These belts can be purchased at specialty travel stores as well as online warehouses such as Amazon, and range between $15-$25 (USD). If you are sensitive about RFID protection, recognize that most of these belts aren’t RFID protected, so it may be wise to purchase a specialty RFID pouch for your passport and cards (or just place your cards in your passport RFID pouch to save some $$).
Think about it!! For Less than $30 you can assure yourself a safe and nearly headache-free adventure abroad! That’s definitely worth the money, right?!
Do you use a money belt when you travel? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts on them!
