What do you do with your cash when you're going through security?

because your bags can go through the x-ray machine a lot quicker than you go through at times and it's a tangle of people. I can easily see someone making off with wallets. I was worried about my laptop last time but was ok.

Leave it in your bag and watch bag like hawk. DH nearly lost a bag once when one identical went through within seconds of his. He (like most men) always end up emptying pockets into the small plastic crates and then being body searched because there is still some money stuck in a forgotten pocket.

I always put my handbag on last, and don't put it on until it looks like I'll go through straight away.

Make sure that your laptop has an ID sticker on it as they do get confused

Any sticker that you will recognise. Otherwise 4 identical Dells coming off is asking for someone to pick up the wrong one!

So no one carries their cash on their person while going through?

I picked up a mobile phone this year and gave it to dp. He walked a long for a bit then realised that he had picked up his phone and I had walked off with an identical one. We turned around nd there was a guy frantically searching for his so even if unintentionally stuff can go missing at security.

A sticker with your name on is best as its really obvious. A US travel security guy recommended to me that I have a sticker with name and postcode on the lid as also if you forget it they can trace you easily.
