Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Lynne B., who wrote:
“My husband and I recently went to a seminar about all different kinds of security given by an ex-military, retired FBI. He started with cyber security, but the tip he shared there for travel security seemed like genius to me. When out and about in travel situations, he carries a fake wallet…made from a well-used older wallet and outfitted with an expired driver’s license, a few other cards and a small amount of local cash. He says the muggers are just as nervous as you are and he tosses them this wallet and says, ‘This is what you want…’ and says nine times out of ten they leave him alone after that. We will definitely do that on our next overseas trip.”
