Guarding against loss and theft, money belts keep cash, passports and other valuables safe and hidden while traveling. Options vary from soft "pockets" worn under clothing, to belts with hidden pockets or clothing boasting multiple hiding spots.

Typical costs:

  • Silk and fabric money belts come in a variety of styles and cost about $5-$50. The larger pouch-style belts are typically worn at the waist or around the neck and hold cash, credit cards, passports or travelers checks. Narrow belt-style units are designed to hold cash and checks, folded into long, narrow strips. Wrist, leg or ankle-style belts hold small amounts of cash, checks or a single key. For example, the thin, lightweight Tapp Collections SE Travel belt[1] is worn around the waist and sells through Amazon for about $5, while the Travel Essentials PacSafe PouchSafe 200 security neck pouch[2] costs about $40 and has a moisture-proof liner to keep valuables dry.
  • Leather belt-style money belts fit into standard waist loops and cost about $45-$140, depending on style thickness, length and buckle choice. The interior zippered pocket holds 18-32 folded bills or checks and comes in a variety of airport-security options including Velcro closures or removable buckles. For example, the Travelon Money Belt[3] has an easy to remove buckle and costs about $50, while Bullhide Belts[4] offers a design styled after the same belts Texas Rangers used in the Wild West with two removable buckles for about $130.
  • Travel clothing pieces with multiple sealable pockets that keep passports, cash and travel documents on hand at all times cost about $45 -$215, depending on style and location. Travel vests can feature dozens of pockets for valuables and are typically priced from $70 -$215, shirts $45 -$85, shorts $45 -$55, pants $60 -$85 and jackets about $90 -$250. For example, Scottevest[5] offers a slim-fitting travel vest for men at $100, while Filson[6] produces a cargo-style travel vest for about $215.

What should be included:
  • Regardless of style, each money belt will have at least one secure pocket that is hidden from view to keep valuables safe and hands free.
Additional costs:
  • Leather quality and buckle designs can increase a belt price from $40-$100 or more, depending on style.
Discounts:
  • For online purchases, watch for companies that offer free shipping to save $5-$15, depending on item, total amount of order and travel distance.
Shopping for a money belt:
  • Outdoor and travel stores like REI[7] and LL Bean sell money belts, along with other travel accessories.
  • Traveler and writer Rick Steve maintains a list of what to pack[8] , including a money belt.
