Win a DataSafe Leather Wallet: The Kena Kai Travelocity Wallet
I think we all remember that ill-fated time I washed my passport. Thanks to that lovely experience I learned all about the RFID chips in new U.S. passports. Even back in 2006 when Bush made the decision to include these chips, travelers were concerned their identities could be stolen through them. And as it turns out–people were right to be concerned. Your identity can be stolen through your RFID chip, but luckily there is something you can do about it.
Travelocity has embarked on a new relationship with Kena Kai, a company that makes gorgeous Italian leather wallets and passport holders with DataSafe technology. Each wallet is lined with multiple layers of radio-frequency (RF) shielding material that has been approved by the government to meet their strict new FIPS-201 security guidelines.
And not only do they protect your identity, they’re gorgeous!
Even better, the good people at Kena Kai have given me a few wallets to give away to loyal blog readers. Since data security is such an important topic, let’s discuss that. Answer the question below in the comments section and I’ll choose the best tips to win a free Kena Kai DataSafe leather wallet or passport holder.
How do you protect your identity when you travel?
My name: Alison Presley
Nickname: Presbo, because I'm good police.
How I earn my keep: I'm the manager of Travelocity's Travel for Good program. Visit Travel for Good to learn more about our green travel and voluntourism initiatives!
What kind of traveler am I: I'm an intrepid food explorer. I usually starve myself on the plane (not that that's too hard to do) so that the moment my toes touch foreign soil I'm ready to sample new and exciting cuisine. I like to dine everywhere from hole-in-the-wall local secrets to Michelin Guide gems. Cannelés, poi, boiled peanuts, oxtail soup, poutine--there's no stopping this adventurous palate.
Greatest travel lesson I've learned: It doesn't cost a lot of money to do good. Offsetting your carbon impact only adds a few bucks to your trip, green hotels are very affordable, and volunteering locally during your vacation is a great way to give back and learn about the culture.
