Full Answer

Cash should not be packed in checked luggage and instead should be kept with a traveler at all times. Cash also should not be packed in carry-on bags that are placed in overhead bins or under seats. Money belts with metal zippers and clips can set off metal detectors at security checkpoints. Plastic belts with Velcro closures are recommended instead.
