Steeped in history and spiced with mystery, this exotic continent has inspired artists, mystics and poets for centuries. Now it’s your turn.

From Japan’s blushing cherry blossoms to the lost tribes of Himalayas – it’s time to escape the ordinary.

For Solo Travelers: Expedite Your Passport in as Little as 24 Hours.

This is for US travelers who need to get a US passport to travel overseas.

Getting your passport is an important step for every traveler. Unfortunately the passport process can be confusing and complex. With a little bit of knowledge, you can secure your passport with ease!

The most common way to get a passport is through the post office. This process takes 4-6 weeks, so make sure you have enough time. Bring your photo ID and proof of citizenship.

If you need a passport faster than 4-6 weeks, you will need to expedite the process. Many post offices can expedite with 3 week service for an additional fee, but this service isn’t guaranteed. Using a trusted private passport expeditor that is registered with the US Department of State is another way to get your passport fast, guaranteed. They will help you with the required forms and can secure your passport in two weeks or less, however fast you need it.

The final option is a Regional Passport Agency. These are located in select major cities and an appointment is often required. Call ahead first and make sure you bring your required documents.

Looking for great value accommodation for your next European trip?

Avoid single supplements. 60% of our accommodation is in single rooms!

UniversityRooms.com offers a unique opportunity for independent travelers to stay in university residences when students vacate during the holidays.

Forget grungy student accommodation – although rooms can be basic, many have en-suite facilities and are often within historic buildings in city centre locations!

You could be staying in an Oxford college, enjoying a drink in the bar and dining in the Great Hall where parts of Harry Potter were filmed. Alternatively, try our Cambridge accommodation; stay in colleges frequented by alumni such as Darwin, Wordsworth or Prince Charles.

As well as UK accommodation, we feature university residences from just 40 Euros in many European cities, including Madrid, Rome and Barcelona.
