Im just wondering how insiders feel about handing over your passport to photocopied on check-in. I really can't recall this happening before but it happened just recently at the Paris Champs-Elysees. They say it's for security which I can somewhat appreciate with the location right on avenue Champs-Elysees. But with all the identity theft these days it bothers me to hand over my passport to be photocopied. They did tell me they destroy the copy when I check out, but how do I really know that!!!
Anyway am I just being paranoid or is this something others have experienced??
