Check your passports!

There is nothing worse for someone to get ready for a trip and pull out expired passports.  Yes this does happen. A family of 5 going to Mexico to join their families from Canada in Mexico over Christmas, pulled out their passports on Dec 24 and discovered their 2 childrens passports had expired. They were to leave Dec 25 and they couldn’t go.  They were certain all passports were valid since they had taken a trip around 6 years ago not realizing that passports for people under 18 years of age expire after 5 years.  I suggest when you a book a trip make it an automatic exercise to pull out all the passports and check. If they had done this even a couple of days earlier, they could have gotten new ones.  How awful for the entire family who wanted to reunite for the holidays.
