Passport rate hikes are almost here. Not only will the rates for new passport increase on July 13th, but frequent travelers will also feel the wrath of the passport rate increases. Currently there is no cost for adding additional pages to your passport, but starting July 13th it will cost $82 to add passport pages.
Most people feel that the passport rate increase is excessive. The cost is going up from $100 to $135 for new adult passports. Since passports are valid for 10 years, I don’t think that thirteen dollars and fifty cents per year is excessive. When considering that passports are valid for a decade, the rates don’t seem so outrageous.
I pay more than $135 each month for several goods and services including cable television, cellular phone service, auto insurance and gasoline. One fancy dinner, 2 tickets to a Broadway show, or a day at a sporting event all cost more than $135 – and that’s just for one night – while a passport is good for 10 years!
