Are you a ‘travel document wallet‘ kind of traveler? I wasn’t…BUT I have recently been converted and am now embracing the ease of the organisation.
When travelling with kids it makes sense to have it all together, especially as you’re moving through Customs and filling in departure and arrival cards. The main things to look for when choosing one for the family:
- one with a zip that goes all the way around the outside keeping everything securely within;
- places to hold multiple passports;
- space for cards & currency;
- somewhere for a pen (you need this to complete the travel forms); and
- a spot for the boarding passes to slot into.
Set out below are 5 cool travel document wallet options available in stores now:
1. Carabee from Anaconda
This is a great all rounder. It retails for $50 at Anaconda and can fit so much inside including your passport, tickets, credit cards, cash, maps, phone & camera. The handy twin compartment design is very easy to use and it has an adjustable shoulder strap. The Caribee also has RFID Protection in the rear zip compartment that protects you from identity and scanned credit card theft.
2. The Daydream Travel Wallet from Mimco
To add complete style to the equation, Mimco have a travel wallet called the Daydream. It is all leather with their signature rose gold hardware and retails for $199.00. Unzip this clever wallet to reveal a multitude of pockets and handy compartments.
