Your visa is a precious thing and should be kept as safe as possible. Replacing your BRP if it is lost or stolen in the UK can cost up to £1,000 and if you lose it abroad, while you are on holiday, you may have to return to your home country to replace it.

In the UK, keep your BRP with your passport, in a safe place at home. DO NOT keep it in your purse or wallet or carry it with you. 

While travelling, make sure your travel documents (passport, BRP) and anything else that would be difficult to replace (an emergency bank/credit card, your room key) are kept very safe. You can get a “hidden/travel money belt” which you can wear under your clothes in case your bag is lost or stolen.
