Luxury Passport case
Keeping your passport safe is a priority while travelling as it is your document to the world, which open doors to new places and bring you safely home.
Travelers who had bad experiences with documents abroad will understand when we say to keep it safe and those who don’t should trust us. As it is something you keep around all the time, having a special case protects against conditions of caring it for too long as for example, tearing up inside a bag or even getting wet.
It is true we cannot predict bad behaviour from people, but for those other conditions as noted above a case can save your document. For this reason, we selected an elevated option with a luxury edition from The Case Factor. This metallic option gives a fancy style for the trip, an ideal gift for that luxurious friend that likes to be on the spot.
Before you buy, make sure to check the measurements, which in this case is 14.5cm length and 10cm width. If you want to add an extra touch, what about adding an iPhone case? At Amazon.co.uk you can find a similar color for £79.
Price: £120 at Net-A-Porter
