Do you dream of international travel? Can you see yourself strolling downs the canals in Amsterdam, touring a Scottish castle, or basking in the sun along Mediterranean? I know I do!
If you are like 2/3 of Americans, there may be one small thing stopping you from conquering that international travel bucket list…. a passport. According to the State Department, only 36% of Americans hold a valid passport.
The process of getting a passport isn’t difficult. I had to renew mine two years ago and get the kids each one when there was a chance of my husband getting a job abroad. When you plan ahead, the fee is only $110 for adults and $80 for children 15 and under.
Major airlines are currently offering fantastic low rates from US airports. I’m finding that isn’t actually cheaper to fly abroad than within the US. Recently, I found that I could travel to Oslo, Norway (one of my bucket list destinations) for as low as $160 one way from the US. You can find similar rates to destinations like Amsterdam, London, and Berlin. Now is a great time to start planning your trip aboard. Take a look at these prices for Rome, Italy.
hotels.com already has great rates on hotels in the states and internationally. Search Here for Hotels.com Best Hotel Deals! I recently booked a stay in New Mexico for our family and received 40% off the rack rate.
Now through August 31, 2017, get an additional $110 off your next international hotel stay of $800 or more when booked through hotels.com. That $110 is the price of your passport fee.
