What is a U.S. Passport Card?

A US Passport Card facilitates travel by land and sea between the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean (with certain exceptions) and Bermuda.  It's a cheaper option than a passport and has a smaller size but is intended only for non-air travel between a limited list of countries.  Applications are available at most post offices, with an initial application fee of $45 for adults and $35 for children.  Renewals for adults cost $20.  This compares well with the cost of initial passport application fees for adults, $100, and children, $80, as well as the adult renewal fee of $75.  The valid periods of use are the same as those for passports at ten years for adults and five years for children.
