This can be especially convenient when you're traveling with children, as it can be easy to lose track of important documents when you're on the go.

Choose The Right Size

Family passport holders come in various shapes and sizes. Ultimately you want to pick a size that matches the size of your family. Are you a family of 4? A family of 6? You get the point.

You should also consider if you want to use it as a document organiser and travel wallet, as the extra convenience does mean a slightly bigger passport holder.

  • Driver’s license
  • Currency
  • Hire documentation
  • Printed maps

Cue a stressed mum whenever there’s a need to recover the items at various points throughout the journey. Not the best solution.
