Pre-trip Document Check

Make sure your travel documents will be valid during your entire stay. Many companies require that it won’t expire during a set period of time when you return. Make sure there is no damage to the information or picture. After excessive wear, there could be tearing or fading. You may be denied boarding if all information isn’t legible.

When traveling with children other than your own, you may need a notarized letter signed by the parents when leaving the country. We saw a family at the airport around 5am scrambling to get the information before a 7am flight. They had traveled from KC to St Louis and I am not sure how they found a notary at that early hour. It could have been prevented with careful planning. I am not sure if they used a travel agent, but that is a benefit we provide. There are many details when traveling and situations vary by destination. Also regulations change regularly so you need to contact a professional agent to guide you through the details.

We also recommend a medical release if case of emergency. This can be used for local, domestic or international travel. It is best to have the letter notarized and include a copy of medical insurance card. It is best to be prepared before a problem occurs and hopefully you never have to use it.
