I admit that I have been reading about money belts for awhile on here but
would like a little help to resolve a few questions.
My daughter and I will be leaving in about a month to go to Madrid, Paris,
Amsterdam, Barcelona...places that I know are famous for pickpockets.
I am willing to buy the money belts...So you carry your Original OR Copies of your passport in the money belt?
What about leaving the RailEurope and airline tickets locked up in the room in our luggage or in a safe?
The Paris hotel does not have a safe but they have security screening at every entrance and long, faithful employees.
They said to lock up anything we felt was necessary in our luggage there.
So would be lock up extra money, RailEurope, airline tickets, and the original passports in the luggage?
And wear money belts with a copy of our passport, metro tickets and some money?
Then is it safe to wear a purse to keep our cell phone and some money for the day in?
I like to use a credit card....should I keep in my purse? My purse does NOT have metal strips to prevent the
straps from being slashed. Do I need that too?
If I put it in the money belt, how do I retrieve it without looking suspicious?
Thanks. Yes, you can tell that I am not a seasoned traveler, but I am trying to educate myself before we go.
