How to choose the best Travel wallet
When looking for the best travel and passport wallets to buy there are a number of things to take into consideration: –
1. Safety Protection
RFID-blocking wallets are designed to help protect you from a specific type of theft, called RFID skimming, which is where information from high frequency (13.56MHz) RFID-based credit cards and passports are read and duplicated. So be sure that your travel wallet is made from RFID material and has the necessary RFID safety features in included to protect you from identity theft on your travels.
While there are a lot of good travel wallets on the market, be careful choosing one just because it looks good. Some companies sell cheap versions made from low quality materials that won’t last more than a week. Although there are lots of great budget travel wallets out there, always read reviews, check the specification and materials. Lots even offer warranties and no questions asked money back guarantees.
3. Design & Pockets
When it comes to purchasing a travel wallet there you need to consider what type of wallet you actually need. Some are ultra lightweight and slim line but only have a few pockets, others have lots of compartments and pockets but are slightly bigger. If you are traveling with the family you might want to consider getting a larger passport travel wallet, that way all your travel documents and passports are in one secure place.
If you’re traveling around Europe you may want to consider getting a lightweight travel wallet that easily fits in your pocket. That way it’s always to hand and you can avoid stuffing too much in there. What ever the size it all depends on your travel needs and where you are going to and how long for.
Just like with size and design, travel wallets come in a variety of different materials. Although the different materials can effect the look and style of your wallet, it’s also important to to pick a travel wallet made of high quality materials. Look for wallets made from 100% genuine leather or rip stop material to increase durability. The last thing you want is to purchase a cheap imitation and for it to fall apart after a few weeks.
Some of the travel wallets are multi-purpose, meaning you can use it as a passport and document holder then simply detach it from the main compartment and use it as a lightweight travel wallet just to hold your coins and notes.
