Claire’s Weekly Travel Tips

Clean out your wallet or purse before you travel. Take out items you won’t need like personal cheques, transaction receipts or business cards. If your wallet is stolen when travelling, having the bare essentials in your wallet will decrease your chances of identity theft.
