Acceptable identification can be found at http://www.tsa.gov/ and examples include DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license, US passport, or a foreign government passport.
Certain countries will not admit a passenger if their passport expires within six (6) months of the anticipated date of return.

TBT CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT ANY INSURANCE PROVIDER WILL APPROVE COVERAGE FOR A CLAIM MADE UNDER THE INSURER’S POLICY AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE EXTENT OF COVERAGE FOR ANY POLICY IT MAY OFFER OR QUOTE.
