@Pupperoni:  keep your tickets/reservations under the identical name as your passport.  that’s all they will ask for.  will you be flying?

You don’t need to show both.  But if it is an international trip, you will need to make sure that the name you book it under is identical to the name on your passport.

@Pupperoni:  Not for travel as you should never have to show both.

@Pupperoni:  i’ve never needed to show my driver’s license while travelling.  just my passport.  where are you planning on going?

Well, it should actually match your legal name.

Do your reservations match your passport name?

The important one here is your your Airline / Ship / Train / Bus Reservations for INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL must match what is on your Passport.

Otherwise, you need to bring along some extra items…

Your Wedding Certificate – your Birth Certificate – and Driver’s License

Combined with all 3 Documents you can prove that you are who you say you are

The reason you need all 3, is because it will depend on WHO you have to prove it to… if it is Customs & Immigration (vs say the Airlines) they may want to see your Passport (who you claim to be) – Your Wedding Certificate (who you married) – Your Birth Certificate (to back up who you are in your Passport) – and your Driver’s License (Photo ID with your current address, and shows your NEW hyphenated name)

I wouldn’t worry too much… to be honest, this crap happens all the time… you aren’t the first Newlywed to encounter this problem

Customs (particularly the US ones) may give you a hard time about not putting thru the paperwork yet… but ultimately if your Passport hasn’t expired, it is still legal.

Other folks like the Airlines are used to this… they see it often, as most Newlyweds on their Honeymoons are travelling with a mix-and-match of documentation
