One of the worse things that can happen to you while you are travelling is to lose your passport. But these days in the digital age, you could get robbed without even knowing it and the robber need not even lift a finger. By the time you get home from your holiday, you would’ve been served with urgent letters from banks or credit cards with charges and transactions you know nothing off! You would’ve been a victim of identity theft. Day light robbery I like to call it.
So how do you keep your deets safe so that you can travel with peace of mind?
You need a travel wallet with RFID blocking technology. But first, you need to know what is RFID.
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object. A tag can be read from up to several feet away and does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the reader to be tracked.
Commonly used in cards, its found in many things we use daily like our Touch ‘N’ Go cards, office access cards and recently our bank cards when we converted to PayWave. This information tag is also attached to our passports. More airports around the world are implementing enhanced Automated Immigration Systems to make clearance more efficient and more convenient for travelers. But with all that in place, we become more vulnerable to a new age theft. (Damn these thieves!).
So back to the question of keeping our deets safe from these thieves. You need a travel wallet with RFID Blocking technology. These travel wallets are becoming more accessible lately as concern grows. But seriously, have you seen some of these wallets? They look so drab, boring and all too serious for my liking.
Introducing the Quilted Passport Aluminium Wallet by Ogon Designs.
Your passport is considered one of the most valuable personal document. A stolen or lost passport could lead to catastrophic problems. So, you’d want something that can really protect it.
The Quilted Passport Wallet is probably one of the prettiest and the toughest RFID wallets out there.
Made from Anodized Aluminium, this makes the wallet corrosion resistant. The Aluminium is built to be tough with RFID blocking technology yet Ogon Designs has managed to give this wallet a stylish, lux edge by working together with French designer Eric Berthes.
The wallet is slightly larger than a conventional wallet as it is supposed to be able to fit in your passport and up to 15 cards.
I like the idea of having a sizable wallet like this when travelling because how many times have you rummaged through your bag thinking you’ve lost your passport because it’s buried deep inside your bag. With this wallet…no more rummaging. Almost impossible to miss an aluminium wallet in your bag.
But what do i do with this wallet on days when I am not travelling?
Well, ladies….Think. Clutch. Seriously, its the perfect size for a clutch, plus it comes with all the handy compartments of a wallet. Most clutches don’t have that. You can even slide in a think pocket mirror for touch ups. You can even fit in a regular size iPhone (without a phone cover on)
It’ll look fab when you’re all dressed up for a night out on town or a fancy dinner.
Mother’s Day Delight
Since Mother’s Day is just around the corner too, I think the Quilted Passport Wallet makes a great gift. Whether it’s for your mother, your wife, sister or an aunt, this wallet will surely please. It comes packaged in a lovely box and for added protection from scratches it comes equipped with a cloth bag too.
