Debit Credit ATM Card Protection

Debit Credit ATM Card Protection

I used the red one now for about a year, it does not protect the face and really is only good for one card. I found this silver steel box holder here in Bangkok, Thailand. I now feel safe, if the magnetic strip, the numbers, the signature, or the card breaks, I have no money. I do not use traveler’s checks, I carry about 200-300 US dollars cash, but I exclusively take money only from ATM machines now for 10 years. Sometimes I purchase online airline tickets with the card, I use for nothing else.

Breaking a card, losing a card, travel is rough on debit cards, I do not use credit cards. Not the same as when you can just go to the bank and are issued a new one. DHL can you believe it charges more for a Card…

The bottom line, you must protect your money first, money solves all travel problems. Traveler’s checks do not work; cash always works and ATM about 99 percent of the time… I presently know of only one country where I could not use and ATM, that was Iraq, and I suspect you can now.

Buy one these debit card boxes, take this photo to an office supply place, not a traveler supply, they do not give you want you need, they give you what you want, you need this. Took me forever to purchase one in the outside world.

Thanks for this most excellent tip.

I think this type of protective case is most often used as a business card holder, and is probably why it's easier found in an office supply place. And since debit and credit card dimensions are very close to most business card dimensions, it's a perfect solution for keeping a card or cards in good shape on the road.

A critical great idea.
