Which type of traveler are you?
1.) The last minute traveler
2.) The luxury traveler
Expedited passport services can be one of two things: a life saver or a convenience.
If you answered ‘yes’ to traveler 1 the following pertains to you:
There’s something about that little (and important) passport requirement that is so often overlooked: The fact your passport must be valid for up to 6 months past the return date of whatever trip you are taking. To be fair this is one of the most common reasons for a needed expedited services so there is little reason to be ashamed.
If you answered ‘yes’ to traveler 2 the following pertains to you:
In a world where convenience is king why complicate the luxury of having your passport expedited and personally delivered to your home or office? We get that and are happy to help.
The typical route of locating your local passport agency arriving in person and applying for a passport takes, on average, 4-7 weeks. Getting expedited services through a US passport agency takes about 2-3 weeks.
Getting your passport expedited through the post office can take 3 weeks or more but it’s also possible to get it expedited and in your hands within 24 hours.
Is getting an expedited passport worth the money?
This is a question that only can be justified by you, the consumer and traveler. Think about the following to assist making up your mind:
1.) Cost of transportation/time off work: How much will you have to pay in gas money to get to your local US passport agency? There are only 26 locations which means the chances of it being near are not the best. How much will you spend for parking? Will you have to take the day or half a day off of work in order to avoid the inevitable long lines? If you are attempting a “walk in” appointment, can you afford going back a second time in the event you cannot be serviced?
2.) Can you put a price on your time?: How often do you find yourself saying, “There’s just not enough time in one day?” Especially when planning a vacation! It can be overwhelming and we are telling you it doesn’t have to be. In addition, do you have enough time off work to be able to physically attend a passport agency for help? Do you loathe standing in 1-3 hour lines? To some travelers this is priceless.
3.) Your sanity: This might seem a bit silly, but it’s true… Is your sanity worth the money you would save not having your passport expedited? Everyone has a different schedule, agenda, and responsibilities.
How it works & can it be trusted?:
We are pleased to assure you that private expedited services can be trusted and they are government approved. DO your research first as reputation is critical for expediting services. When you think about sending all your private information in the mail you want to ensure it is 100% trusted. There are many courier companies that are not certified that consumers need to beware of. Use a trusted, professional company that works.
