Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Karol, who says:

“If you are renewing your passport, I think getting a passport card (paying the extra) is a great idea, as when boarding a domestic flight for the New REAL ID Act rules. Could be in lieu of (or in addition to) getting a new REAL ID CA driver’s license.

Also, I just went to the DMV last week to get my REAL ID CA driver’s license. Good to double-check all the ID requirements before you go to the DMV, as I saw the DMV turn away one person after another at their appointment time because they didn’t bring their proper ID requirements (original social security card, passport, bill used as address identifier, etc.).”

Good idea, Karol. Though all current U.S. driver’s licenses will be accepted at U.S. airports through 2020, the future situation . A passport card (while not a full-on stand-in for a regular passport book) could be used as REAL ID Act-compliant ID throughout the country. And yes, you can have both a passport book and a passport card at the same time. .
