Remember when travel meant grabbing an overnight bag, heading to the airport, and taking the next flight to anywhere? We do. But global excursions have changed, and so have travel practices. Keeping your passport, credit cards, IDs, and vital info safe and yet accessible is now of paramount importance.

The outer pocket is great for keeping your phone or your boarding passes handy.

Rather than asking that fashionable traveling mom where she got her family’s travel wallet, we’ll save you the trouble by suggesting this organizer. The entire wallet blocks the RFID – the radio frequencies that unsavories use to get your information. There’s only one you, and this blocking technology works to keep it that way. This tough, large-size wallet unzips to open wide for accessing four passports, credit cards, zippered cash, and keys. It will fast become an indispensable travel tool.

Tuck in a passport or two, eight credit cards, a SIM card depicted pocket, ticket, or receipt, and still have room for your phone.

Do you keep a little yen or some quarters tucked in your wallet? That’s yet another reason you’ll appreciate this well-designed travel wallet because it also has a zippered coin compartment. The tri-fold style and the eco-friendly bright blue faux leather make it easy to locate in your purse. But there are dozens of other colors to choose from, too. This phone-size travel wallet is cute enough to use every day, not just for trips. And best of all, it’s RFID repellent. Once you get used to that feature you’ll never want to be without it.

Keep it right in your arm or attach the crossbody strap or wristlet – both included – for an added layer of protection.

When we take our kids’ friends to the tournaments and meets, we used to scramble at the airport counter getting everyone checked in with boarding passes and IDs. That’s why this travel wallet made our preferred travel list. It’s spacious to comfortably hold six passports and has two zippered pockets for cash, two letter-size pockets for documents, an external zippered phone pocket – 21 pockets in all. Not only does it offer premium RFID protection, but as an added measure, it’s also waterproof. Because you can’t turn in wet receipts for reimbursement.

Feels more like a planner and at a little under 10 inches tall, it ticks all the boxes.

We enjoy it when our pre-planning and organization allow us stress-free travel time. This wallet feels like it’s designed by travelers. It’s got an accordion design that keeps four passports within easy reach, has room for 13 credit and insurance cards, a clear ID pouch, zippered pouch, and a few pockets for all the mementos of spending receipts. You can handily put your phone in either the inside or exterior pocket. Made from nylon, this wallet will take you from Rome to Rio.

Made to hold six international passports and sort different currencies, this handy option simplifies your trip.

The maker is so confident in their RFID protection, they’ll give you $300 if something goes awry.The little pen is a nice extra so you don’t have to scramble to fill out customs and immigration forms. One large zippered pocket secures bills and tickets, and the multiple cardholders keep track of everything else. It’s water-resistant, too, so you can pull it out in the marketplace or bazaar without worry. Also, you can put the ReturnMe recovery tags on your phone and wallet for added security.
