ANTI-THEFT TRAVEL

KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE: RFID BLOCKING GEAR GUIDE

The days of the George Costanza wallet are numbered. Technology and innovation have lead to the rise of the smartphone and the decreased need to have cash on hand. Phones are now equipped with numerous apps such as Venmo, Apple Pay, and PayPal and with cashless transactions at your fingertips. The need to carry cash and multiple credit cards is quickly becoming antiquated. Yet, there are a few key items that are needed with you including a driver’s license, credit or debit card, and even membership cards. To ensure you’re always prepared a slim wallet is the solution for functional, comfortable, and minimalistic daily carry.

No matter if you are on the road for business or pleasure, thieves will often prey upon those who are not in familiar surroundings. In order to keep your trip going smoothly, there are plenty of countermeasures that you can take to keep your valuables safe from theft.

During our travels, we have seen unfortunate incidents happen that range from swiped bags to pickpocketing. These professionals of misdirection can be very hard to spot. You probably wouldn’t realize that you’ve been pickpocketed until they were a few blocks away from you at best.

In this day and age, you also need to be cognizant of electronic theft. We enjoy how technology makes our lives more convenient, but with those advances also come some vulnerabilities.

It is used for services such as contactless payments.
