How To Protect Your Money
There are many ways you can protect your money and your belongings.
We have to reckon with pick pocketing, burglary and armed robbery.
The fear of getting robbed can be big,
even after reading (see here how to behave so you won’t get robbed). There will be a chance that it happens anyway, and you can’t do anything about that.
So after the initial shock fades away you are left with less money, no passport, no cellphone or even without your luggage.
And this is where you can make a difference with your preparation to protect our travel cash.
See here how you can prepare yourself from the situation not having anything after getting robbed.

Carry one or more of the product above and a so called “Travel Wallet”.
This is a normal wallet that contains:
1: (20-100$) to satisfy a robber and not getting him suspicious that you hide money anywhere.
2: Your old credit cards and some coupons (make it look real). But don’t stuff the wallet because a fat wallet means a lot of money, to the bad guys.
You can carry your normal credit card here as well and if you feel unsafe, just switch it into your hidden pocket.
In case you get robbed, you just hand out your travel wallet. It's a pity, but you know that you only lost around 50$ instead of many hundreds of dollars, credit cards, ID and more.
