There are a lot of rules to traveling, but one is always starred and highlighted at the top of the list: do not, under any circumstances, lose or ruin your passport.
It seems easy enough to keep the incredibly important document — you know, the one that allows you to get in and out of your country — safe, but you’d be surprised how often they get damaged, stolen, or misplaced. And the only way to prevent anything from happening to your passport while you’re on the road is making sure you have a holder that will keep it in one piece, no matter how crazy your travels are.
Because traveling can be pretty chaotic, the last thing you want to worry about is your passport getting all bent up in your carry-on or left at a busy terminal gift shop during your pre-flight snack run. That’s why carrying around your passport without any sort of protection or case is kind of a travel no-no, whether it’s before and after your flight or during your trip. By investing in a holder, you’ll have one less worry when it’s time to leave the country.

Not only does having a passport holder protect the document from getting ruined, but it also keeps it from getting misplaced. The passport itself is just made from plastic and paper, so adding another layer around it will ensure it doesn’t get trashed during your journey; that way an accidental spill or sudden rainstorm doesn’t put a damper on your trip. And when it comes to avoiding losing your passport or getting it stolen, you can purchase an option with straps, zippers, and other compartments that make it easier to keep track of.
To enjoy your trip to the fullest without any passport-related woes, grab one of these holder options the second you book your plant ticket.
