Photocopies of your passport (9/13)

Copies, not copy.
You should never ever ever ever ever ever hand over your passport in exchange for anything.
I got burned on this once when renting a scooter from a sweet old lady who turned out to not be so sweet after all.
If someone demands your passport in exchange for a rental, give them a photocopy.
If they won’t accept that, go to someone else.
Someone will want your business, and they’ll be more than happy with the photocopy.
If something were to become an issue they can always use the photocopy to make a claim, but they won’t be able to hold your original passport hostage.
