Do not treat a money belt like a wallet

“A money belt is not a substitute for a handbag or wallet. It is essentially a ‘body safe’. You do not access it during the day or in public. It is for the surplus cash, back up ATM and/or credit card, passport. Not for your walking around money — use a handbag/wallet just like you would at home.” — janisj
