Traveling is a favorite pass-time for many people – -married or single, young or old. However, it can also be a dangerous past-time. Keeping valuables safe while traveling is something that seems to be on everyone’s minds while they are touring a different city, country or continent.
5 TIPS TO KEEP VALUABLES SAFE WHILE TRAVELING
BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS
Keep an eye out for people who are watching you and lurking around. Also, keep on your toes in regards to those that seem “too eager” to help you with your bags.
PHOTOCOPY ALL TRAVEL DOCUMENTS
If your passport or other travel documents are stolen, having a photocopy can help prove who you are and where you have been or are going to prevent you from being stuck in a foreign country.
DON’T KEEP YOUR ALL YOUR MONEY IN ONE SPOT
Having all your money or credit cards stolen can leave you in a lurch. By keeping smaller amounts of money together in separate bags, will give you a better chance of keeping a portion of your money if your bags are stolen.
BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE
Travel insurance will help you replace any lost or stolen items should you need it.
PURCHASE SECURE LUGGAGE
Purchasing the proper bag can help protect you and your items. Beside-U has great quality bags that not only help protect your items with RFID protection but can also easily transfer from travel to business to play.
Beside-U uses a RFID blocking zippered pocket that blocks the radio frequency found in credit cards that allow us to tap when purchasing. This radio frequency can be picked up by people with $20 worth of equipment that can be purchased on eBay or Amazon. All these thieves needs to do is stand next to you to pick up your credit card’s signal and steal your banking information.
Beside-U can be found in 14 countries around the world and all their bags are constructed of a lightweight nylon but are extremely durable. Beside-U bags have lots of zippers and pockets, both on the inside and outside, while the larger bags have slots for tablets and laptops of varying sizes.
The Mya bag has the RFID guarded zippered pocket, a padded compartment/sleeve for a laptop and a tablet and lots of room/organization for your other things. This backpack actually opens from the back which means it is near impossible for someone to open your backpack while you are wearing it. It is a great safety feature for crowded marketplaces and airports.
