My Passport Just Got an Upgrade

Who doesn’t love personalized gifts? And what if there was a way to get something useful personalized which is also aligned with your passion. Sounds like the best gift ever, right? I also received something of that sort on my birthday this year.

Hello Friend!
Now many of you would ask how is a passport holder useful? Well, at least for me my passport holder has become my most essential carry-on accessory these days. Imagine this – you are changing multiple flights and get all your boarding passes at your first airport; you keep the tickets and the boarding passes separate; you need to get to your next flight a.s.a.p. but your tickets are mixed up with 50 other things in your hand bag and you get anxious just because you are running late. Happens more often than you think! So, get a passport holder that lets you put not just your passports, but your tickets, cards and some currency notes!

Temptations at airports and need for efficiency 
This passport holder was sent to me by Urby, and I must say I am pretty impressed by their wanderlust collection. The Urby passport holder is a well thought passport jacket with 4 card slots which in my case are needed for my Sapphire card, Travel Card, my College ID card and my Starbucks card! Then it has a sleeve to store the boarding pass and a couple of currency bills. This part is where my uber travel essentials organizer alter ego finds pleasure. And the not so girly girl in me loved the colour and texture collection Urby had for these holders. Starting from chick glossy dark berry holder to the not so flashy, demur silver holder – they probably have colours that can please everyone’s requirements.

Oh, and before I forget, it also has a small slit in the back where I am going to keep my travel card just so that, well I love my travel card and it adds that bit more personal touch to a passport jacket that already says – it belongs to Vaisakhi Mishra!

Pros: -
1.   Well thought through design, with adequate number of slots for all the airport stuff.
2.  Not very bulky, and fits into pockets like a wallet or in a small sling bag.
3.  Good material ensuring long life of the sleeve. And incase anything goes wrong within 1 year, URBY would actually replace it because you get URBY products with guarantee!
4.  I wouldn’t call it a budget product, but it sure is cheaper than most of its market competitor’s personalized products.

Cons: -
1.   I found the sleeve a bit thin and hence am not sure if it can hold multiple passports along with credit cards and money.
Yes, that was it. I didn’t really have much to complain about the product!

So, there you go – thinking of new gift items for a wanderlust soul? I think I helped you out a bit, didn’t I? Because remember,  hassle free travel leads to good travel memories!

  1. Such an essential add-on. I think I like the idea of passport holder. It means no forgetting and since this is lightweight, I think this is the best for me because I've had days where I have to pour out everything in my bag to get my passport. Kinda embarrassing

  2. This is a great gift for a luxury traveller like me! I have one from Aspinall and travel everywhere with it. It's good for keeping currency like your too!

  3. What a great idea for a gift! I love personalised stuff because I can never find anything with my name on it haha. You're so right that it makes it much easier to find everything.

  4. We got passport holders before our trip this summer. It was definitely convenient for storing money and credit cards. I like that you can personalize this one though. That's a nice touch.

  5. A passport holder is a great gift! I used to own a plastic cover, but it is not as durable as leather one. I like how this one has pockets to separate credit cards and passes!

  6. Something I struggle with whilst in the airport is organising my passport and boarding cards. It seems the Urby passport holder is a good solution. Especially when I buy something in duty free and they ask me for my boarding card!

  7. This is so stylish I'm going to have to add it to my Christmas list! A great way to organise important documents!

  8. Oh what a beautiful little gift. I may have to get one for my passport seeing as its Christmas and my passport as been so good to me this year ;)Love your list of pros and cons to help make up my mind - pretty clear though its a winner!

  9. The passport holder is quite convenient, we love having them to be able to put our cards and clip our plane tickets sometimes. For us the cons is that the passport control always removes it so it's sometimes quite annoying when you have your hands full. Great gift idea as well!

  10. This passport holder is pretty cool and stylish. It is definitely a good gift for our loved ones.

  11. Passport holders indeed come in very handy and are an essential add on. Esp when you are hurrying your way between connections or trying to make it to the flight in the last minute.

  12. I just want to thank you for sharing your information and your site or blog this is simple but nice Information I’ve ever seen i like it i learn something today.

  13. I love the look of the passport holder, and that it is personalised is a nice touch. For me though, I prefer to use a travel documents pouch, a bit larger than passport size, and all key printouts, boarding tickets, confirmations for tours or other bookings, travel insurance etc. are in there. They are never loose among the many things in my bag!
