How to Choose a Wallet Based on Your Travel Style
Itching to take-off into the friendly skies? There’s no time like the present to start thinking about where you’re going travel first when this pandemic is over. It’s also the perfect time to start updating your travel gear. Does that worn out carry-on bag need to be dropped off a local charity? Maybe you need a new passport holder, or perhaps it’s time to upgrade that cracking, old leather wallet you’ve been stuffing into your back pocket. Whether you’re hitting the beaches of Ibiza, motor biking around Thailand, hiking the Inca Trail in Peru or living it up on an upmarket gentleman’s trip to Dubai, we’ve got a few tips to help you choose a wallet based on your travel style.
The Luxury Traveller Wallet
Before the pandemic, you were a high-flyer, you’re comfortable at airports because your time is spent catching up on work in the business or first class lounge. You prefer five-star service, you don’t like doing what everyone else is doing and you keep interesting company. The last thing you want when you’re heading out to a high-stakes dinner is a bulky, outdated leather wallet creasing up your threads. Consider the Blade Slim Card Holder for a more professional, upmarket look. With enough space for your two most important credit cards, ID and a few important business cards, it’s discrete, stylish and masculine.
The Adrenaline Junkie Wallet
If you’re not plummeting to the earth at 120mph, white-knuckling the side of your board as you drop in on the most perfect point break, or ‘shredding pow’ on a bluebird day, you don’t feel like you’re traveling (or living for that matter!) You’re hard on your gear, and you need a wallet that’s not only ultra-durable, but one that keeps everything where it needs to be. The Snake Eye Bi-fold Wallet is lightweight, has plenty of space for cash, cards and receipts, and the best thing about it is it zips up completely so you never have to worry about anything slipping out.
The Wellness Traveller Wallet
The wellness traveller likes to take it easy on the road. You travel to destinations that help you focus on your health, and provide you with the opportunity to unwind, relax and connect with nature. You might be escaping to a beachside resort so you can be up with the sun to catch the first waves. Or perhaps, you’re spending a week at a wellness centre, or maybe you’re on a Mastermind retreat trying to learn how to give your business a kick start while simultaneously learning how to meditate and manifest success. The Travel Wallet is a meticulously designed kangaroo leather wallet that will easily hold all of your travel and retreat essentials, and is compact enough to bring on a more active wellness trip.
The Flashpacker Wallet
Your hostel days might be behind you, but you still like to travel on a budget and keep the frivolities to a minimum. You might spend your holiday relaxing at a local guest’s house, or chilling by the pool at a budget hotel. You probably wouldn’t be caught dead on an organized tour, but, you like to explore cities on foot, eat where the locals do and you’ve got a bucketlist that needs checking off. The flashpacker is a bit of a minimalist, so your leather wallet should be sleek, subtle, but durable because of how much you move around. Consider a carbon fiber wallet with coin pocket because while credit cards are widely accepted, you still like to pay for things in cash, and you don’t want to lug around a bulky money holder.
You might be one of these traveller types, or maybe you’re a culmination of all four. And if that’s the case, there’s nothing wrong with having a different slim wallet for every occasion and travel style. It’s not like you wear one pair of shoes for every occasion, it’s good to have options depending on your style of trip and where you’re travelling in the world.
