Keeping documents safe while traveling is paramount because, should you ever lose them, it could cause an unwanted world of hassle. It could cost a lot of time and money to replace whatever was lost or stolen. We compiled a list of steps to take to safeguard your documents.
The first step is to register for the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program. STEP is a free service available to all American citizens when traveling. You can register with the nearest embassy, and they will contact you in emergencies on how to proceed with your trip. They also send out security updates that may affect your trip as soon as they arise.
Next, make at least three copies of your vital documents: passport, identification cards, visas, hotel information and debit/credit cards. Make sure all the information is legible, and leave one copy at home. Bring the other copies with you, but never store them in the same place as your passport. These copies act as a reference should you ever lose your passport and it needs replacing.
Purchase an RFID-blocking passport and card holder to prevent your information from being stolen. They can usually store your passport, debit/credit cards, SIM cards, money, tickets and identification, etc. all in one place. It keeps you organized and is less hassle navigating the airport.
Carry a purse or money belt during your daily excursions. They are often small, comfortable and stylish and keep your phone, money and cards safe.
While in another country, it is always recommended to keep at least one identification document on your person. In most countries, a photocopy should suffice, but in others, you may need to have the actual ID card. Do some research beforehand to see what works best for your situation.

IMAGINE SETTING SAIL IN AN EXOTIC, far-flung destination, just you and your family or group of friends aboard a private yacht.

All the while, the captain navigates the yacht into secluded coves; to pristine, seemingly undiscovered beaches; or even to the hottest spots along the coast for a night out on the town.
