North American Travel Card for teenager?

Jump to last reply

We may (still kind of up in the air) be going to Canada by train in July. My father and I have passports, but my son does not. He's about to turn 15. I'm thinking to save a little money and just get him a travelcard, since I'm thinking it's much more likely that he'll be going to Canada and/or on a cruise than somewhere that requires an actual passport and we're not completely sure he's going anywhere! The only thing that is giving me hesitation is the inability to fly into Mexico or the Caribbean with it, although I can't imagine why he'd need too (Spring break trips would occur only over my dead body, and he's mildly disabled and is still very childlike, so it's very hard to imagine him traveling by himself, although he should be able to eventually). Are there any other pitfalls I'm not aware of?

Also, does anyone know why you have the option to get a book AND a card at the same time? Why would you need the card if you have the book?
