Think About Your Passport

First In our post 9-11 era, a current passport is an absolute necessity. If yours is not up-to-date or is due to expire in the near future, you’ll want to be sure to renew promptly. Don’t wait until the last minute.

The Internet is often an easy and painless way to renew, but here are a few things to remember. If you’re applying for your first U.S. passport or if someone in your travel party is under 16, you’re required to apply in person. There are other conditions that require you to apply in person as well. Check it out now to avoid a scramble (and extra fees for expedited service) later.

We encourage you to get more information online by clicking below, the link that will connect directly with the U.S. State Department. It’s an easily-navigated site that is well laid out and informative.

Travel Insurance
There’s No Better Travel Companion – and, for some Peace of Mind, There’s No Better Investment

While we might not think of it, travel can represent a major investment. Few of us would get behind the wheel of our family car without insurance, or leave our homes unprotected against fire or flood. When booking travel, you’ll want to protect yourself against unforeseen circumstances – trip cancellation, lost luggage, sudden illness, accident or the myriad of things that can go bump in the night. We all know that old adage “Don’t be penny-wise and pound foolish.” No saying could be more relevant when it comes to travel insurance. For a tiny fraction of the cost of your trip, you can protect yourself against financial losses due to a variety of covered reasons. Don’t leave home without it.
