Travel Safety - How to Keep Valuables Safe While Traveling - by Kim Smith
Traveling with money, credit cards and passports can make anyone a bit apprehensive. Here are a few ways to keep your valuables safe from thieves, scam artists, or hotel burglars. Never leave your money unattended in your hotel/motel room, camp site or on your beach blanket, thinking it is safe there. Carrying money, jewelry, and important papers can also pose certain threats; so many options are available to travelers to help hide their valuables in their clothes.
Money belts look like ordinary belts, with a secret compartment for money storage.
A Money Pouch can be worn under any garment, and is made to stay flat and unnoticeable under your clothing. It is also large enough to carry a passport and boarding pass.
Pocket Travel Socks
Secret pocket travel socks are another alternative to hiding your passport, credit cards
and cash safely against your body, so you’ll have them with you at all times.
Make Your Own Safety Pouch
Don’t want to buy new products? Then you can sew a secret pocket into any garment, including bras, pants, underwear, or anywhere you feel it would be safe. Simply sew your money with a matching colored thread, covering it with an extra piece of fabric, inside your clothing, using a piece of two sided Velcro for a top opening.

Remember - never leave your valuables unattended at the beach, in your hotel room, or with your gear (while chatting on the phone or unconsciously listening to your IPOD). Keep your important papers, money, jewelry, credit cards and debit cards safe, and away from thieves, by using proper precautions at all times.
