Reader Travel Tip of the Day: Passport Stickers

reader-travel-tip2Passport Stickers
Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from Karol H., who says:

“I am a retired flight attendant. When traveling with my family of 5, I am ‘in charge’ of the passports. With multiple stops on international flights it’s a pain to keep track of whose passport is whose—opening up to get through security and handing out each passport with paperwork, customs forms, etc. So, I put a tiny circle sticker (color-coded and featuring the first initial of each person) and stick it on the back cover of each passport. No more fumbling around, opening up 5 passports and trying to figure out which passport belongs to which person while rushing through lines. One quick glance and problem solved!”

A nice easy way to save time, and avoid stress. Thanks Karol!

    Add a second sticker with the passport number for custom/immigration forms. No need to open individual passports.
