Travel in European RFID protection
It never fails that these issues generate lots of confusion, even amongst some seasoned travelers.
RFID is a completely separate payment system that works without direct contact to the card reader. As a few have noted, transit cards, employee ID cards, passports and some credit cards use this system. But is has NOTHING to do with the much-talked-about EMV chip credit cards and the one that Brenda mentions in her OP. A chip and PIN or chip and signature card must be inserted into a reader so it can make contact with the chip itself.
So do you need RFID protection?
Do you have a credit card with RFID technology? It'll show the little Wi-Fi symbol on the card. If not, you are wasting your money completely. The other cards mentioned that use RFID are useless to thieves even if they could steal your data, including your passport.
