What if I have lost my DNI and I have to travel soon?

Find out what you can do to avoid missing your flight if you don’t have your national ID handy.

One of the best outlets for escaping the routine is plan a tripalone or accompanied. Going to a destination we do not know allows us to leave worries that persecute us to focus on the present and enjoy all the details of the adventure, whether we are looking to rest or to know the history of a certain place. Although when we start with the organization we believe that everything is under control, it is possible that you feel a few seconds of anxiety when you leave the house and arrive at the airport and you wonder: where did I leave my boarding pass? Or even worse, what happened to my ID card?

This state of desperation is more common than you might imagine, especially if you’re a few minutes away from boarding and you don’t have time to take a taxi and come back for the missing document. If you think all is lost and your plans are ruined, don’t worry, you have a series of alternatives in your favor to choose from. Of course, you should check everything you are going to take with you more than once.
