Overseas travel is a luxury item for most people, and unfortunately the cost just keeps going up.

If you're planning a trip across the pond anytime soon and you don’t have a U.S. passport yet, you may want to submit your application before next Tuesday.

First-time adult passport application fees are increasing 35 percent, from $100 to $135.

Is it time to renew your passport? Come next week, you'll pay $110; today the renewal fee is only $75.

A more detailed breakdown of charges, including fees for minors, can be found here.

Don’t forget that passports require photos with specific dimensions, which may mean an additional charge.

Passport applications may be submitted at many U.S. Postal Service locations. Check here to find a location near you.
