Let’s talk passports…
Did you know passports are valid for 10 years but a lot of places require it to be good for at least 6 months past your travel dates? (kids under 16 it is valid for 5 years)
Did you also know your passport needs to be signed and in perfect condition?
We are going to be required to have a valid passport or real id in Washington and several other states soon, it was delayed again this year but I think everyone should have a passport! You never know when the trip of a lifetime could come up.

I have stories for days like the guy that had an expired passport and asked if his Nexus card would work I told him no, a month later I was rearranging his flights and getting him info to the nearest passport office to get a passport in a hurry… He met his wife a day late. Or the kid that his dog chewed up just the corner of it was allowed through but when he was boarding in Atlanta do Belize was denied a wasted day in Atlanta getting a new passport. Or the chaperone in a group traveling to Spain that ignored the warnings that it must be valid for up to 6 months after travel and again had to get him on another flight… Another important thing to note, your name must be on your ticket EXACTLY as it appears on your passport. If for some reason it is switched around First and Middle you will not be allowed to board, when you get your itinerary always double-check the spelling of your name.
It is not worth missing any time on your precious vacation, protect your passport because 1. it is your identity 2. you never know when you are going to need it.
