Summer’s almost over. Can you believe it? In about a month, school will be starting back again, the weather will start cooling down, and you might find yourself wistfully daydreaming about kicking back on the beach with a nice frosty cocktail.
If you aren’t ready to wave goodbye to summer yet, don’t despair! Starting September 8th, JetBlue will fly you to paradise for cheap! Leave from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to catch a flight to the Bahamas for $29.00 each way. You can get from New York to Montego Bay, Jamaica for just $119.00, and from New York to St. Lucia or Barbados for just $129.99 each way. You can view all of the fares here!
Of course, if you’re flying to the Caribbean, there’s one piece of essential travel gear that you’ll need to get your hands on-a US passport. If you apply for a passport with ordinary processing, you need to allow at least 6 weeks for it to be processed. Even if you apply using the government’s express passport processing, you can expect to wait at least 3 weeks. That might be cutting it close, and JetBlue’s tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.
For last-minute trips, the best way to go is to get an express passport using a private passport expediting company. An expediting company can forward your application directly to the US Department of State, where it will be placed on top of the stack, so to speak. The result is passport processing times that are much faster than the regular government service-anywhere from 24 hours to a little over a week, depending on what option you choose.
Go ahead-order an express passport today and extend your summer just a little bit further!
