We talk a lot about bags here, and we sometimes forget that having the perfect wallet is also key to an organized trip. If you're traveling internationally, you need spots for different currencies and coins, plus, it's always good to have a little extra security.

9 Best Wallets for Travel

From slim, RFID protection, and carry-alls, we have rounded up the best wallets for traveling.


RFID Protection Wallet by HuMn

If less bulk is what you’re looking for, this wallet is for you. The RFID Protection Wallet is small, sleek, and has RFID protection to protect your credit cards and personal information from skimmers.  Made from “Aircraft grade aluminum powder-coated to a smooth finish” and only 3.8 inches long, it’s the perfect wallet to take with you on a trip. Available in 6 colors.

User Review: “This wallet has totally changed the way I carry things. I did not realize how many obsolete things I had in my old wallet. I went from 2 inches down to 1/2 inch when I switched over to the HuMn wallet! Now I can carry it in any pocket and not worry about my card numbers getting scanned/stolen.  Thanks for the new size of my wallet and the added security!!!”

A wallet that can also be used as a clutch is just what you need when you travel. The Lauren Leather Wallet is stylish, has plenty of space for those pesky international coins, plus bills, several slots for credit cards, and a clear ID spot. Available in 4 colors.

User Review:This is my second Hobo wallet. I have one that I purchased in 2012 and I absolutely love it! I am able to put everything I need in it and just go. It is especially handy when traveling because I don’t have to take my whole purse, I can just throw this wallet in my carryon bag and go. If this wallet lasts like my first one then it is well worth the price!”

Eddie Bauer Connect Travel Wallet

Again, anything that seconds as a purse makes for the ideal travel wallet. This Connect Travel Wallet has a removable strap, is big enough to hold your smart phone (and has an elastic strap to hold it in place), a mesh pocket, and is made of durable polyester. Available in 8 colors.

User Review: “I have the Smoke color, just purchased the Stream one on sale. Holds cards, folded bills, nice zippered area for coins. Lots of nooks and crannies for other items. Will not hold iPhone 8 Plus in Lifeproof case, but in summer I use a belt clip and have coat pockets in winter. It's very light, a quick grab and go wallet that can be used with the crossbody strap. I like that the strap is removable. I really like that it isn't heavy, and doesn't take up lots of space in purse or tote bag.”
