Tips On How to Buy the Right Travel Wallet

Tips On How to Buy the Right Travel Wallet

There are a number of great travel wallets available. Whether you need something big enough for a passport and a boarding pass, or something small yet durable, there’s something to follow you on your adventure. Style doesn’t need to be sacrificed for function, but the TSA does need to be aware if your wallet looks unusual. This article will show you how to buy the best one for your needs.

What do you need?

The most important tip, of course, is to buy only what you need. If you need something to keep your passport in, get that. But if you only need something for your licenses, you don’t need anything too fancy. For a good slim minimalist wallet, try the Trayvax Ascent. This ultra-slim wallet is tough enough to withstand travel, even if it’s only big enough to hold a few cards. It’s perfect for the car, the boat, even the sky.

It’s TSA-certified, so it can go into the air with no problem either. Slip it into your inner coat pocket, so it can go into the X-Ray machine. It’ll come out the other end just fine. So if you need something compact, the Ascent is your wallet.

Carrying your Passport

On the other hand, there are strong wallets that are perfect for holding your passport. They’re larger than slim wallets, so they’ll take up more room in your pockets. Our favorite one is the Trayvax Explorer. It can keep your passport and cards close, allowing you to take them out right at the gate. You’ll be flying the friendly skies in no time, and when you exchange your cash, you’ll have the best spot for them. There’s even room for your boarding pass if you fold it up small enough. With all of these things said, the Explorer is a perfect passport wallet.

Protect Your Cards

Now, there are a number of wallets sized and suited for travel. But if you want to keep your cards safe from breaking, theft and RFID skimmers, there are a few wallets for that sort of thing. The best one would be the Trayvax Element. It’s great against potential airport accidents, like being run over by a luggage cart or dropped onto the floor.


It’s also one of our best RFID-blocking wallets, so nothing will be swiped or read without your permission. Despite all of this, it still looks nice enough to be pulled out in the concierge lounge and not be tacky.  This wallet looks rugged without being ugly, and is fashionably slim. Be the talk of the lounge with this tough, sleek wallet.

Check with the TSA

Most of Trayvax’s wallets are TSA-certified, but it’s always better to ask ahead of time. They might not have any problem with an unusual-looking wallet, or a clutch with a lot of metal, but sometimes they might. If you don’t want your Trayvax Roam Clutch confiscated, let the TSA know about its odd shape.

If they’re OK with it, the Roam is a great clutch to take into the sky. It can fit your phone, your cards, some earbuds, a tube of Dramamine, and some gum. Everything you need for a smooth flight can stay safely snapped in this clutch. So tell the TSA that you have it, and keep it with you.

Go with Your Personal Style

The most important thing to look for in a wallet is appeal. It won’t help anyone if it’s just collecting dust at home while you’re in the tropics. If you’re looking for a metal men’s wallet, the Original 2.0 is your best bet. It comes in a number of colors, and is one of our best-selling wallets. It blends fun and fashion, and is made with airplane-grade aluminum, stainless steel, and durable paracord. This popular wallet will go with you wherever you need it to, and match your personal style.

In Conclusion

There are a number of things to consider when you’re buying a wallet to take with you on vacation. First of all, you need to determine what you need. It could be a slim, durable Ascent, or a thick and strong Explorer for your passport. Don’t forget to check with the TSA, either. Protecting your cards is of the utmost importance, but style doesn’t need to be sacrificed. And don’t forget, any wallets you purchase from Trayvax are covered by our 65-year Heirloom Warranty, so they’ll be with you for every possible adventure.
