How do you keep your valuables safe, no matter where you go or what you do?
We at the Clever Travel Companion love to travel! We have been to many parts of the world, backpacking, going by train, bus, car and even on foot. We have been to Asia, riding the Trans Siberian train from Moscow to Beijing, driving through Mexico and across the US, inter railing in Europe, gone by bus from London to Cape Town, South Africa, worked in hotels in France and studied in Spain, just to mention a few of our trips. Most of the time we have felt and been perfectly safe. Most people, no matter where you go are friendly and helpful and wish you no harm.
However, sometimes there are dangers and there are thieves and pickpockets waiting for happy go lucky travelers with pockets full of cash. We have had our money stolen (even out of a money belt) a few times and lost our passports too, do you know what to do when you lose your passport? We didn't. We always thought that as seasoned travelers we knew what we were doing and would never get robbed. But for crafty pickpockets we were no match... Other times we had no one to blame but ourselves. Carelessness, tiredness or something or other simply led to stuff going missing: a passport disappeared somewhere between Malaga and Barcelona, a wallet went missing on the train to Paris and somewhere on a desert road in Africa is a Swedish drivers license laying, all by its sad self.
Losing a passport or credit card is rarely the end of the world, they are replaceable, but it is a huge hassle and really makes a serious dent in your travel plans. Getting a new passport overseas takes time and money - time you would rather spend sightseeing or laying on the beach with a ginormous umbrella drink. To all of a sudden have to spend time, and money, replacing your valuables is annoying as hell. Even if you have travel insurance.
Getting a new passport out of Quito? How do you do that when your flight leaves in a few hours? All your cash is gone? Someone stole it? As well as your credit cards? How on earth do you explain that to the cab driver, who by the way speaks no English and you speak no Chinese, as you speed along the roads of remote Gueilling? If you find yourself somewhere off the beaten track, with no access to consulates or other helpful parties, losing your valuables is a major problem. But even in a major city, why even risk having to spend time replacing passports or having money wired from your 'I told you so' parents back home, when all you want to do is enjoy the town?
So, in order to make sure travelers always keep their most important documents and money safe, and enjoy a hassle free trip, we started The Clever Travel Companion. The Clever Travel Companion makes anti-theft and anti loss products that help travelers keep their belongings safe at all times and ensure a fun and safe trip, no matter where you go.
The first product we launched was our line of men's and women's underwear with pockets. The pockets are just the right size for your passport and comfortably fits cash, credit cards and other travel documents too. No one will ever know where you are hiding your credit cards or your passport and you will protect yourself from theft, loss and pickpocketing.
After the initial success with the underwear with pockets we decided to expand the product line. The Clever Travel Companion now also sells long johns with pockets for all those traveling to cold destinations. After all, skiers also need somewhere to stash their money and credit cards whilst out on the slopes. Two other new additions to the product line are t-shirts and tank tops with a pocket on the stomach area or two pockets, one under each arm. The pocket naturally fits credit cards, passports and cash perfectly. Wearing a sweater or shirt on top of the t-shirt or tank top makes the pocket totally invisible and your valuables completely safe! Most lately we added circle scarves with pockets, these are perfect for city travel, the keep you safe and chic and the same time. And for warmth we have hoodies with numerous pockets that can even fit iPads and books. Finally just this summer we added cute travel dresses, which you can easily dress up and down and still look great and be safe. Seriously, no pickpocket, no matter how smart will ever know where you are hiding you valuables with the Clever Travel Companions patent pending products with secret pockets! Oh, and of course, it is virtually impossible to mislay your stuff because lets face it, anyone can forget a wallet, purse, fanny pack or money belt somewhere but who takes off their clothing just anywhere in the middle of the day and forgets it?
The Clever Travel Companion will be adding new products all through the year, so please check back. Of course you can also find us on Facebook and Twitter. If you want to know more before buying, check out what others had to say about the Clever Travel Companion's products.
