Get yourself some Free Passport size photo’s to use on your future travels
One of my biggest travel tips is to always have a handful of passport photos kept safely tucked away in your wallet.
If you have your passport stolen or want to apply for some hostel membership cards you need a lot of passport size photos for your travels.
You never know when you might be at a broader point and need one or two to process your visa.
I like to take a stack of 20 on my round the world trips and I’ve used them all up too, so it’s wise to pack a load.
The major problem is photo shops charge a fortune for them to be processed.
Save this money for your travels and instead, print them out for free!

Then you are able to download a print out PDF sheet, Simple!

• Take it to your local store that allows 6×4 photo printing.
My local store (HEMA) does this service for €0.20 per sheet and in the UK Tesco does this for £0.15. Way cheaper than the £3.95 I’ve been charged in the past.
Works out at 20 Passport size photo for £1 or a €1. Never have to worry about paying a fortune again.
And remember to smile in your travel photos, but not your passport size photo! (It won’t be approved if you look too happy its happened to me in the past)
Just a word of advice
Passport companies can turn your pictures away if they are not correct so make sure they are within the guidelines and get an approval before sending them off.
