Why you need a travel wallet.
In truth it is not an absolutely essential travel item, but it is a very good tool to help you keep organised at the most hectic moments during your travels. It will you you keep all the important travel documents, including your passport and airline tickets in one place, ready to access when you need them. Your fellow passengers will love you, as you won't be scrambling for the right piece of paper when you get to the front of the airline check-in line, or hotel check-in line, or whatever line you'll inevitably have to be waiting in!
Travel wallets come in various styles, and searching the internet, you'll find people referring to money belts and neck pouches as travel wallets. Those however, are not travel wallets. A travel wallet is a wallet, usually about the size an old school airline ticket (i.e.not an e-ticket), or larger.
The purpose of a travel wallet is for storing your passport, your travel tickets, travel itinerary and any other travel document you have. A good travel wallet will also have a provision for a pen, which actually is an essential travel item!
Choosing a travel wallet will depend on your budget, your style, whether you need to store passports for other family members and also your travel style. If you are looking for a great gift for a someone who is an avid traveller or who needs to travel a lot for work, look for a good quality leather one that will last many years.
