Scan your ids, passports, etc. as separate jpg files. Then, create a Word document and insert all the images. Email it to yourself to a Yahook Hotmail or any other Internet-accessible email account along with any itinerary information you need contained within the email body.
You may be tempted to put all your ids on the scanner bed and scan it all as one file, but it's easier if they are separate, as certain things change more often (kid's school id's, medical ins cards if you switch jobs often, etc.) so you only have to just re-scan new ids or cards when you get them and not have to pull everything else out to scan as a single page again.
This way, should your wallet get lost/stolen, you can download and print copies of it all at any ship or port internet cafe.
I also include in the boty of the email my credit card/bank customer service phone number and account numberso, medical/prescription information. I also copy and paste into the email the pertinent columns from my travel planning & packing list spreadsheet's itinerary page, which contains all travel phone numbers, confirmation numbers, etc.
I will still print and bring one copy of this information, but it also helps to have it all backed up on the internet for each and free access.
Again, if anyone would like a copy of my spreadsheet, just send me a PM and be sure to include your email address.
The spreadsheet containes 5 worksheet tabs:
- Planning Checklist
- Packing Checklist
- Wardrobe Planner
- Travel Tip Resources
