Happy Traveler

Passport prices are going up on Tuesday, I just found out. I was thinking I could slide under the wire on renewing mine, but I won't have all the name-change documentation ready in time.

Did you know you can also get a "passport card"? It's cheaper than a passport, but it's only good at land crossings and seaports. Not accepted for air travel. Too bad. Nobody stamps passports anymore, so a card would be much more convenient.


  1. Just renewed ours last month and go the card, too. Maybe our next trip to Europe needs to be by sea? :-)

  2. Never heard of the passport card. My passport has been stamped on recent trips, but they always stamp the same (now slightly jumbled) page -- I wish they'd branch out to the other pages.
