I know the whole security aspect of RFID wallets are bollocks, however I like the idea of having a mechanism where only of my contactless cards can be read while the others are "protected". Usually I just have the card holder type wallets, rather than a full size folding wallet, for an oyster card, debit card, amex and company account card.

As more and more cards have contactless I'd like to have something that only the oyster card is read when presented to the reader (for those who will invariably say why not just use the debit card for the tube I like having a separate account of journeys I can expense when TFL emails me the statement history)

Anyone got a recommendation?

How will the wallet know which card is to be read at the right time?

Was hoping to get a wallet where one card slot on the outside is unprotected, while the rest are, if that makes sense

You could try getting those protector cards that go either side of the cards that blocks the RFID (apparently) and keep the oyster outside. It should be the only readable one then.

All I did was buy a standard card wallet and put a folded sheet of tin foil (started with roughly the width of an A4 sheet of paper) into the outer most compartment of the side that I did not want to be read. It works like a charm.

Have you tried putting tin foil over your head?

Covering just your head in foil is no longer sufficient....

It wasn't to stop crime. I did it because I wanted to be able to keep my Oyster and and bank card separated.
