Travel Documents

  • The name on your identification must exactly match the name on your airline ticket, including any middle name or middle initial.
  • It’s a good idea to take pictures of your identification with your mobile device or make color copies to keep at home and in your luggage. This will expedite the process of getting replacement identification if it is lost or stolen while traveling.

Technology and Travel

Your mobile device can be a handy tool during travel. Check out these tips for using your device during your trip:

  • Download Your Airline’s App: Most allow you to check in 24 hours before your flight, check seat assignments and track your flight. Some apps send flight alerts, such as delays and cancellations.
  • Stay Connected: Internet access is complimentary at the hotel.
  • Take Pictures: It’s a great idea to take pictures of your travel documents (identification, airline confirmation, hotel confirmation, etc.). You may also want to take a picture of the contents of your checked luggage in case it is delayed, lost or damaged.
