Use Saturday’s passport day for that extra travel oomph

by -

Saturday is national Passport Day, which means you can apply for a passport, get advice or anything else passport-related in person without going through the sometimes grueling process of making an appointment to do the same. The Brooklyn event is at 271 Cadman Plaza East. It won’t save you any money off the $135 fee, but it will save you some hassle, especially if you took advantage of those late-winter travel deals. And this is a good time to remind you why paying for passport rush services is one big scam. Take it from us: just having a new passport teasing you with its blank, stamp-less pages is motivation enough to figure out a way to travel, whatever your budget.
