And to ensure people understand, our cards have both the contact and RFID "PayWave" chips.

It's been an interesting discussion.

I think we will stick with the simple actions -- face the cards together in a wallet with aluminium foil on thin card stock in the wallet.

We also will contact our banks should we need to do transactions which are out of the ordinary.

And we will employ the usual safeguards in handling our cards and money, including withdrawing cash from ATMs within banks for minor daily transactions.
