Travelling abroad? 3 things to keep your wallet safe


Remember Rani, from the movie Queen, who fought a thief in a foreign land to save her wallet? Not all of us can do that, can we? The most natural human reaction will be to let it go. Only in hindsight do you realise how you should not have kept all your valuable documents in one place. Frankly it’s easier to forgive yourself for losing money, its difficult to ignore the loss of your ID cards – viz., Your PAN card, Driving License, Passport etc…

Check out these 3 tips that will help keep your valuables and money safe and give thieves/pickpockets a hard time.

1. Lighten up your wallet by distributing the valuables – You don’t need to keep all your eggs in the same basket. Use only 1 card when going out to shop, keep less cash and have just 1 identity proof with you. In the wallet, you may only store the cash. For the card and the identity proof, use top pocket of your shirt or inside pockets of your jacket.

2. Trick the thief with a duplicate wallet – we are Indians and nothing stops us from having that extra amount of fun. While you have found safe zones for your valuables, load another low-cost wallet with fake currency and UNO cards. It should appear loaded. Pickpockets generally attack the tourists hence getting their attention won’t be difficult. They will regret their decision of messing with an Indian.

On a serious note, if you are someone who likes to be safe than sorry, then this one is for you.
