  • Protect your ID, passport and credit cards with radio-frequency identification (RFID) blocking travel gear.
  • Carry your important documents and currency in zippered cases, preferably with an anti-theft locking zipper.
  • Your back pocket is known to pickpockets as the “sucker pocket” – do not store your wallet there.
  • Carry only one ID card and one credit card in your wallet (not all of them).
  • Copy or take photos of your credit cards and passport in case they’re stolen so you can cancel or place an alert on these accounts quickly.
  • It’s best to use an ATM machine inside a bank to retrieve cash, as they are less likely to have a hidden illegal skimmer installed.
