– A money belt is not the only thing you can wear. You can also wear pants where the pockets are protected with a zipper. It’s that extra layer of protection that makes it hard to be robbed.
– Another good option is to wear a crossbody bag.
– You can also consider taking a long sleeve shirt and tie that around your waist. The shirt will then cover your pockets as well.
In any case, there are so many ways to protect your belongings with clothing, be creative and think rationally, you will surely find solutions that suit you!
Only take essentials with you
What you don’t take with you can not get stolen. If you have multiple bank cards, leave all but one at home. Take a sufficient amount of cash with you and don’t bring your passport unless explicitly necessary.
Avoid risky situations
Public transit, crowded streets, certain neighborhoods, festivals and more are always more risky. Keep that in mind when you are going out.
