Save yourself from where-is-my-passport panic.
Staying organized while traveling is crucial, whether you’re on a trip for business or pleasure. You don’t want to end up not being able to find anything in a messy suitcase full of stuff.
And the same applies to your important personal and travel documents. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve frantically searched through my carry-on bag at the airport because I thought I’d lost my ID only to find it a few seconds later “hidden” between the pages of my passport.
Keeping your credit cards, cash, and other travel essentials in one place will not only save you from an unnecessary panic attack at the check-in counter, but it will also give you peace of mind that all your valuables are safe and close to you. So whether you’re a frequent weekend traveler or like to escape a few times a year to a faraway destination, a good travel wallet will help you stay organized on the road.
And since safety is of the utmost important here, opt for one that will provide you with efficient RFID protection against identity theft. Good storage is another must-have feature. Choose a wallet that has enough compartments and slots to fit all of your credit cards, U.S. and foreign cash, and your passport. There are some that even have separate pockets for your phone.
Here, we round up our favorite travel wallets for ladies and gents and explain what makes each stand out.
