Q. I will be traveling with my 12 year old granddaughter this summer. She does not have a photo ID. Will passing through security without an ID be a problem for her? Do we need a state issued photo ID before taking this trip?

A. The TSA does not require ID for travelers under 18 years of age. Some airlines, however, do ask for ID as proof of age, so be sure to check with your airline. And of course, if you'll be traveling internationally, she'll need a passport.
