Passport demands increasing, renew early

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - When you think about AAA, you might think of roadside assistance or gas, but they're also travel agents.

They tell WTOC if your passport is expiring soon or even next year, you need to renew those as soon as possible because it may take longer than normal.

In the near future, people traveling in certain states, even domestically, will have to have a passport so the government will see an increase in applications.

"So basically what happened in 2006-2007, the western hemisphere travel initiative was inactive which required passports for all travelers international whether that be a cruise or air, those passports are now up for renewal," said AAA spokesperson Garrett Townsend.

The price to renew for an adult is $110 and remember a passport is required to travel to the Caribbean, Bermuda, Panama, Mexico and Canada.
