Copies of Personal Identification Documents and Your Travel Itinerary

This makes the most sense for international travel, but making copies of your driver’s license, passport and other identification essentials is never a bad idea when you’re trekking away from home. It’s a no-nonsense way to prepare for anything unexpected that might come your way.

If your passport is taken, taking a copy to the local consulate will help buoy your spirits in what could potentially be a very stressful situation. It’s not an immediate substitute, but being able to say, “I lost a copy of this ID” is better than feeling frantic that it’s lost. Also, it’s a great idea to make copies of directions to your hotel and any other important destinations on your trip. Having details about your travel allows for more rest and relaxation.
