Besides beach vacations, backpacking, hiking vacations and city breaks are the most popular ways to relax. Cruises and ski vacations are less common. However, all types of vacation have one thing in common: thieves and criminals are always on the lookout for a careless traveler.
It is therefore extremely important to take the necessary precautions when planning your holiday and, among other things, to think about a suitable travel bag/money bag. Even the best holiday can be spoiled by being robbed or threatened. Here you will find out what you should consider when it comes to money on your next trip so that it is a pleasant experience.
#1 Choose a suitable travel wallet
Many people associate a travel purse with a waist pack that can be strapped around the waist and used to hold the wallet. Others prefer to keep the wallet in a breast pocket.
These classics keep you on top of your money, but if you overdo it, you can easily turn into a kangaroo or armadillo. Suddenly you feel like you're on a trip to kindergarten, where your mother put 3.50 in your wallet for sweets. Those days are over!!
When you choose a Space Products mini travel wallet, you can store larger amounts of cash safely and easily, plus have an elegant accessory that you won't feel embarrassed about.
There are plenty of storage options and you're all set for your next vacation. And unlike other dedicated travel wallets, it doesn't lose its usefulness or end up in the closet waiting for next year.
#2 Ensure safe transportation
Stow your travel wallet as close to your body as possible. Thanks to the extremely small dimensions of 7 x 5 x 1 cm of the space wallet, the possibilities are almost unlimited. From the front pocket of your pants to the breast pocket of your shirt, you can even carry them in your bra or stockings. If you decide to buy a bigger wallet, don't carry it in your back pocket! Even if it's only slightly visible, you will attract thieves.
Never show in public how much money you are carrying and do not leave your wallet lying around. This is extremely important, especially in well-known holiday regions, as you cannot avoid busy places and dense crowds.
#3 Use RFID protection
RFID technologies are integrated into many credit cards today, which not only have the advantage of fast, contactless payment. There is also a risk that your data will be transmitted unnoticed and fall into unauthorized hands.
However, you can easily protect yourself from this with an RFID blocker that shields the waves from the outside. This also applies to your mobile phone. Never leave data connections such as Bluetooth or NFC permanently switched on and always be careful, especially with public WLAN networks.
#4 Keep your money in different places
It is not uncommon for vacationers to take several hundred to a thousand euros in cash with them on their trip. Partial payment in cash is often required, especially for accommodation in holiday apartments or short-term bookings. Also, when making longer round trips and moving from city to city, it is inevitable to carry a large amount of cash with you.
That's why you should never keep all of your assets in one place, not even for small amounts. Even if your travel money is kept safe, there is always a risk. So only take what you need with you and leave the rest in the hotel room.
Long-distance travel is on the rise again and with it vacations in unknown countries. If you follow these 4 tips, the risk of something going wrong on your next holiday will be significantly reduced!
