Stylish Passport Covers

Cover your valuable travel identification with a chic holder.

We like the idea of having a stylish cover to protect the most valuable piece of travel identification we own — our passport. As you know we’re not ones to pass up something that is both stylish and practical, and this definitely fits the bill.

Not sure if you need one? Well, there are two main reasons why having a passport cover is a good idea. First, it’s not as difficult to misplace when its housed in a proper holder. Ever fumbled through your bag while waiting in customs looking for that thin piece of identification or found it buried under a pile of papers at home? Exactly. A proper holder will allow your passport to stand out.

The second reason is that you may not be able to leave the country if you are carrying a damaged passport. Anything from rips, tears, to even water-stains can be cause for customs to prohibit you from entering a country — and that’s a sure way to ruin a trip fast. Protecting your passport with a cover will prevent wear and tear while you tote it around, saving you the cash and hassle of having it replaced.

Another bonus of having a passport holder is that many covers and wallets are designed with extra slots and pockets where you can stash documents or credit cards, which is a great time saver when it comes time to paying those annoying baggage fees or passing through customs.
