10 Ways To Carry Your Money and Other Valuables on Vacation

#1 Look the part. It’s funny how many of us are paranoid about pickpockets when we are on vacation, but don’t give them a second thought in our home town. Invariably pickpockets focus on tourists who they expect are carrying cash around, and probably more than the locals have on them.
So tip #1, is don’t look like a tourist – if you look like a local, without map in hand, camera and rucksack, there is less chance of attracting the attention of the local pickpocket. Of course, if you are a European travelling in Asia or Africa, you just look different, in which case you’ll just have to take some of the following tips into account.

#2 Carry a money belt and don’t use it like a wallet. Money belts are probably the safest way to carry your valuables around, but remember not to use it in public – so make sure your everyday cash is in a handbag or wallet – just as you would at home.

#3 Don't carry it all together. Divide your cash and valuables, and put each portion in different places – my wallet/purse, a money belt and a small pouch hanging around my neck are the places I usually use (unless the pouch sticks out if I only have a light blouse on). Make sure you take more than one credit card with you and keep them in different places. If you are a family travelling, make sure each of you carry a portion of the cash – reducing the risk of losing everything. I even give our older children a pouch with some cash – which is also good if they get into some kind of emergency and need to take a taxi back to the hotel.
