This morning I filled out the lengthy online application and paid 100 bucks to apply for TSA's Trusted Traveler Program.
From what I've gathered, it enables a U.S. traveler to re-enter the Land of the Free with a minimum of molestation by security. I understand that I'll have to go to the airport, Houston Intercontinental in my case, for an interview.
I found the information on the TSA site to be completely confusing and unhelpful. I decided to just go ahead with this thing before I knew that it would be 100 bucks. By the time I got to the end of the app. I wasn't willing to just let it go.
What I'm hoping is that getting a TTP card, or whatever it is, will eventually let me get through security more easily for domestic travel, too as the program expands.
Has anyone read all the crap on the TSA site, or do you know more about this thing that I just spent 100 bucks on than I do?
