Although you can stay safe from accidents and injuries, it is always wise to protect yourself from pockets and kidnappers wherever you travel.
Here are the best ways to carry money:
Hidden pockets and wallets
Thanks to increased vigilance and frequent theft stories, many travel accessory companies have now created hidden pockets and wallets, which are very useful for storing small to significant money. You can buy a belt with a secret purse, or you can buy a small wallet that can be attached to the foot under the pants. You can also find wrist wallets, but they eliminate the whole purpose of hiding your finances.
The traditional way to do this is to have hidden pockets sewn inside your shirts and pants so you can store a good chunk of money there and forget about them.
Could you keep it for yourself?
While you might think that putting most of your money in your bag or suitcase could save you from theft, this could be a more significant risk if someone escapes with your luggage. It is always advisable to put your money on your body, hidden somewhere in your clothes. That way, your pockets won’t be able to get rid of anything, and even if you’re robbed, these kidnappers won’t get away for long.
Go without money
Perhaps the most significant technological breakthrough in the last decade is cashless transactions, which allow you to pay anything with just one card and, nowadays, even without a card. You can issue a credit card from your bank, which you can use during your trip. You can also use your ATM card, but it is still necessary to withdraw funds, leaving you vulnerable to theft. Credit cards will make your life easier, but they can also be a temptation, so don’t pursue this idea if you indulge in impulsive shopping.
Be sure not to keep your credit card in your wallet or backpack, as this can be riskier than losing your money. Keep it hidden somewhere in your clothes; travel smoothly!
Share the money
If you carry a large amount of money, always divide it into lots of three or four and keep them in separate locations so that one of them is easy to access. Keep small bills in your wallet and pocket, so you don’t have to spend a lot of money every time you have to pay them.
By following these instructions, you will protect yourself from thieves and robbers and enjoy the journey without having to feel your pockets from time to time.
