  • A travel case that protects documents and identity

    2010-05-21

    As technology progresses, traveling has gotten easier in many respects. Yet travelers still need to carry many documents with them when they fly: boarding passes, confirmations, receipts, and most importantly, their passport.

    Smart travelers will invest in a passport case to organize all their documents in one holder. Most passport cases are pretty similar, but travelers who want extra security should consider one that blocks RFID waves.

    New passports come with an RFID chip that allows them to be scanned into airport security. But RFID readers are purchasable by anyone and can be used at a distance. Security expert Bruce Schneier has theorized that an identity could be stolen by an opportunistic criminal with an RFID scanner.

    Travelon makes a good line of products that block RFID scanning with a special lining for no extra cost. A travel case also prevents passports from being easily lost, along with other important documents.
