Lightweight Traveller Solutions to Avoid Identity Theft When Travelling

November 23, 2013 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Lightweight Traveller is a unique concept store for the discerning traveller offering solutions for travelling comfortably, safely and in style.  According to Lightweight Traveller owner Jenny Cusick, “a concern for many of our customers is wanting to guard against identity theft while travelling.”

A recent Australian Bureau Statistics survey highlighted that almost 45,000 people were victims of identity theft in 2010/11. And in the US, a Federal Trade Commission report released in early 2013 revealed that identity theft tops the list for the 13th year in a row for the most consumer complaints. As Jenny says “many passports and credit cards now have RFID chips [radio frequency identification] which contain personal information. It is easy for 552000thieves to get hold of scanners to read and steal your details.”

Lightweight Traveller has a range of RFID blocking accessories, which are designed with state-of-the-art material that blocks out transmissions and stops personal information being accessed by would be identity thieves. One of Lightweight Traveller’s top sellers with the RFID blocking material is Pacsafe. Pacsafe has an extensive range of accessories including sleeves, wallets and bags, which protect against identity theft by readily available scanning devices.

The Pacsafe RFID Tech 100 Walletis ideal for international travellers and makes a perfect Christmas gift for anyone travelling overseas.

The lightweight wallet fits easily in a pocket or travel pack and the smartly zippered pocket for cash adds an extra barrier against pickpockets. The Pacsafe RFID Tech 100 Wallet from Lightweight Traveller retails at $49.95.
