Travel Money Belts

Page Updated: Feb 2024

Keeping your valuables secure and out of sight is always a concern when travelling. Using a travel money belt is one option. They come in many designs from actual belts with hidden pockets, slim zip pouches or wallets that strap around your waist under your clothes.

In Africa, as in most parts of the world, it is asking for trouble if you flash a lot of wallet cash when shopping, especially in tourist markets. It is better to think ahead and put small amounts of money in strategic pockets on your person or in a securely closed day bag.

How To Choose The Right Travel Money Belt

  • Concealed money belts, with a slim zip pouch, worn under clothes, are designed to keep a few items like a passport, credit cards and extra cash secure. They are not a substitute wallet or handbag where all your other things can be stashed.
  • If you need to retrieve anything from a concealed money belt it is preferable you do it very discreetly out of the public eye, like in a rest room. Do not advertise the fact you are wearing one of these belts.
  • These concealed travel money belts may be worn with the pouch at the front or back - whichever is more comfortable. They are not so good, in that they become bulky and obvious if you wear tight clothes or overload them.
  • Real belts with a concealed pocket are only any good for folded cash. Few have room for a credit card, let alone a passport.
  • Many would-be thieves are aware many tourists use these belts and may adapt their strategies. You may prefer other concealed travel money accessories like leg or arm pouches.
  • Consider your style of dress when choosing a travel money belt.
  • The belts worn next to the skin may become uncomfortable in the heat and begin to smell - look for one made of a fabric that wicks moisture away, is anti-microbial and washable.
