Where do you keep your money when you travel?

Asked by gradyjones (1238points) December 12th, 2009

When I travel I try not to keep all of my money in one place just in case I lose it or it gets stolen. Do you have a place besides your wallet or purse that you hide your money, or other valuables, when traveling?

I have a handy money belt that I got from REI. I keep cash and a photocopy of my passport in it.

It is similar to this. I can keep 2k in hundreds and not notice. But most of my money comes from the ATM. The money belt is for if I lose my wallet.

I keep my money up my ass, out of the way pickpockets. It’s safe, but it’s hell to get it out if the bills become unrolled in there.

Debit card. I don’t carry a great deal of cash on me, but keep some spare in my bag.

We keep our money in an interest bearing savings account. Most of our financial transactions are made with a points earning credit card, and we save up the points for free motel rooms. It is very rare to need cash when traveling.

When Hubby was traveling for several weeks in Europe, he kept most of his money in a ‘body wallet’ which is similar to a belt worn umder your clothing.

It is a good idea to keep some cash on you when you travel. What happens if you lose your card?

YARNLADY's avatar

@johnpowell Good point. When we travel, we each keep a different card in our wallet, and also each have a back up card in our luggage.
