The most essential item when traveling overseas is, hands down, your passport. It’s the item we always triple check before heading to the airport and is often the item we still question if we packed, even after triple-checking. It’s, quite frankly, a very stress-inducing little book that, if lost, can totally ruin your travels. So what’s the best way to keep your passport protected? With some sort of a holder of course. But with so many options available online and in stores, it’s a bit overwhelming deciding which to buy.
What follows is a handy list of some of the best passport holders for every type of traveler, from the overly organized traveler who likes to keep everything together in one place to the ambitious traveler who just wants a simple cover to keep their passport looking brand spanking new.
