Could You Jet Away Out Of Country On A Whim? 4 In 10 Canadians Could Not. 7 In 10 Americans Could Not

Always one to love spontaneity, I love to think that if I had the time and the money I could hop on a jet and head for the sun on a whim.  Wouldn’t that be nice?  Get a taste of spring or summer in this everlasting winter.  Is your passport up to date and valid?  According to this study, 7 in 10 Americans could not travel outside the country today as they do not hold valid passports.  That number is 4 in 10 for Canadians.

Still, only 36 percent of Americans hold a valid passport, according to the State Department, compared to 60 percent of passport-holding Canadians and 75 percent for Brits and Aussies. That means almost 70 percent of us are unqualified for international travel. And in actuality, only one in five Americans travels abroad with regularity, according to a recent survey.

Note to self, I think I need to renew mine.

Happy travels.
