A MUM of three has come up with a genius passport trick that she uses when travelling with her kids.

Staying organised on holiday can be difficult with so many important items to remember.

However, one parent has shown a very simple but effective way of not only keeping her passports organised, but also making them more convenient for travelling.

Tiktoker Come and See Travel (@comeandseetravel) revealed how she uses coloured elastic bands when travelling, so she can easily divide her passports among her family members.

She also puts the bands around the passport photo pages, making them easier for her and her family members to find when going through airport security.

In a video, she and her husband were filmed asking their kids whose passport had which rubber band, so they were able to easily hand them out at the airport.

In a caption, she wrote: "Put a different colour rubber band on each passport.

"Not only does it help with passport distribution, but you can put it on the photo page to get to it easily.

"No more fumbling trying to find it."

The video has been seen more than 561,000 times, with plenty of people amazed by the simple trick.

One wrote: "As the official passport holder, this is a great idea."

Another said: "The is is better than the passport covers! Thank you! TSA always makes us take the entire book out of the cover before scanning it."

An airport worker even chimed in with some praise of their own, adding: "As a passport checker this makes it way easier!"

The mum isn't the only person on Tiktok to reveal a clever passport hack, with one man revealing how to get free passport pictures from photo booths.

In the video, he is seen sitting in the passport photo booth seat with his friend standing outside.

However, instead of using the service, his friend holds up his phone by the screen to get the same angle as the photo booth camera.

He then counts down and takes the photos of his friend looking ahead, with the white background and lighting making the passport photos valid.

However, passengers have been warned not to take "hot photos" for their passports as it risks them not being recognised at the airport.

Passenger Alisha Marie, from LA, was attempting to board her flight in Istanbul with a friend, when she was almost kicked off the plane.

She explained on TikTok: "They almost didn't let me on my flight because they said I don't look like my passport."
