Your passport HAS to match your ticket.  They don’t look at anything else, so you can make any other changes you want.

As far as “id” they won’t look at that….. passport trumps everything.  So you can go ahead and change Dr License, social security card, bank cards etc.  Just don’t show anyone anything with your married name on it while you are in Mexico. 

One note….. with bank cards you may run into an issue if someone wants to see ID, so I would just change everything and then let your hubs pay.


Have fun!

Previous poster is correct.  As long as your plane tickets match the name on your passport, you’re good to go!

Until a month ago, I traveled internationally under my maiden name b/c that was what was on my passport (it still had many years before it expired, so I didn’t change that until it was time to renew), despite having been married & w/a legal name change for 5+ years. 

It appears that you’ll be flying out of MN.  You should be checked straight through from your airport in MN to your destination, so all they’ll check is your passport, not your driver’s license.

Happy travels!
