A Way to Access Travel Documents Online
BY Adam Baer
AccessMyID aims to relieve the stress of losing your passport or driver’s license while traveling.
Losing your passport or driver's license can turn a business trip into a travel nightmare. A new service called AccessMyID aims to relieve the stress by giving travelers online access to high-resolution images of their photo IDs, health insurance cards, and other important documents. After signing up for a subscription, you upload high-res images of your IDs to the service's encrypted site. If you lose the hard copies, you can log on to your account -- which can be secured with up to 20 passwords -- and print out the images, making it easier to get replacements. The photos won't get you through airport security, but you can use them as proof of identity at many hotels and official buildings. COST: $19.95 a year for 50 megabytes of space
