TIPS
We recommend that you leave a copy of your itinerary with a relative or  family member and take extra copies with you.  Also always leave a copy of your passport with a family member or friend and take a copy with you in case of an emergency or in the unlikely event that it is lost or stolen.

ALWAYS make sure that you take extra prescription drugs with you and that you carry them in your carry on bags.  You never know, your luggage could be delayed and then you would be without your medication.

Do I Need A Passport?
While not always needed it is advisable to have one.  If entering Canada or Mexico from a Cruise Ship all that is needed is a Certified Birth Certificate and Picture ID.  But if entering by car or plane a Passport is required.  Other destinations you would need to ask as you go.
IMPORTANT: We recommend that our clients traveling abroad take a photocopy of their passport and applicable visas. It should be packed separately from your actual passport and visa. We also recommend leaving a copy at home with your emergency contact.
