“Of course, nothing can ever be 100 percent safe against pickpockets, but a money belt certainly makes you a great deal safer.”
Money belts usually fit under clothing making them very difficult for any opportunistic thieves to access.
As James says, even if a thief does spot a person’s money belt, they may be put off as it’s very difficult to steal from.
James added: “Avoid wearing a backpack where possible. Unfortunately, backpacks are perhaps the easiest thing for pickpockets to target as it is of course on your back, therefore you can’t always keep an eye on it.
