Tickets….CHECK! Credit Cards…..CHECK! Currency….CHECK!

Struggling to find your passport in the bag? Sounds like a familiar situation? Well true in case of my husband. He is a last minute packer and will try and get things delayed as much as possible. And in the end, I hit the PANIC button and start panicking when he does not get important things on time.

I would describe myself as an organised person, somebody who loves to compartmentalize things in specific folders. So when it comes to travel, you would find my bag neatly stacked with my Id-card, Tickets, Boarding Pass in different compartments. It is always a wise idea to keep all your travel essentials in proper places. Your passport is of utmost importance when you are travelling abroad. However, it becomes too much of a hassle to manage things at the boarding pass counter from the bag. That is exactly when the Passport Holder comes to your rescue. The passport holder helps to keep the passport easily accessible at all times, along with the Debit/Credit Cards, Tickets, Boarding Pass, Visiting cards, Business cards and currency notes. The Passport Holder is a life saviour because it manages all the important items, which you no longer have to search individually from your handbag.
It has been almost eight years, since I got my Passport issued. And all I have done with it is, used it as an Identity Proof. That’s it! No chances of flying abroad. No luck for a vacation in a foreign land! I have carefully preserved it all these years in a plastic packet, the pages shining new. But now, with a vacation already on the cards, my planning and preparation had begun much in advance.

Then around a fortnight back, M. from URBY had approached me stating that she would love me to give an honest review of one of their travel products which is their Passport Holders. Wait! How did she find out that I would need one of these soon? She even agreed to customise the Passport Holder with my name engraved on it. This was indeed very nice of them. Without further delay, I reverted with all my details and within a week’s time I received my personalised Passport Holders. However, as soon as I opened the parcel, I was surprised to see not one, but two Passport Holders. One for me, and the other one for my husband, who was equally excited about the customised product. The passport holder came in a drawstring canvas pouch, which was securely packed in a hard cased black box with the name URBY engraved on it. The packaging itself stole the show.

A little more about the brand URBY

Their website reads:

It all began when Ashutosh moved back from the US & lost his favorite wallet bought over there. Even though the same wallet was available at the company’s store in India, the price tag was more than double its price in the US.

The alternatives from India based brands offered much better price points but barely matched the design & quality he expected. Left without an option, he ended up buying the same wallet by paying double at the store but never forgot the rip-off.

So basically, URBY designs and manufactures travel essentials and sells it directly to the consumers, thereby eliminating the problem of having middlemen along the way who contribute to increasing the price of the products, and while not adding anything to it. The brand, therefore, offers high quality products at non-luxury prices.

The Passport Holder combines class and comfort while you travel with your special someone.
