A passport is one of the most practical possessions you can have. It allows you to explore the world beyond the confines of your own country, and it’s fun to watch those stamps collect within the pages throughout the years.
Perhaps the most stressful thing about owning a passport (aside from worrying about losing it) is how important it is to keep that little document in pristine condition, as a simple tear can render it invalid. One of my friends had to make an emergency stop by the U.S. Embassy in Paris because her passport got soaked by an open bottle of Acqua di Gio.
What’s our best tip for maintaining your passport? Protect that baby with a passport cover. From graphic designs to classic leather, stylish passport covers are a must for globetrotters. Depending on whether you want to splurge or save, here are three options in different price ranges.

Save Passport Cover: Etsy Passport Cover – I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list $18
“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list” is a phrase by Susan Sontag and used by travel bloggers, and we love how it graces the cover of this multi-colored passport case. Stash your passport, luggage ticket, and extra cash in the side pockets, and you’re good to go.
