Hello

 

from what I experienced before I turned 18 I didn't need any ID but I had a school ID just in case. when I went through security at that age all I had to do was tell the TSA agent my age or Date of birth depending on what they asked me and I was good to go they never stopped me like when I was 17 I was tall they didn't say are you sure your not 20 they were like great and on to the next person.

 

Hope this helps

Hi @miranda1

 

The 13 year-old won't need any ID, and they'll be find to travel with you, as they are both considered Young Travelers and not Unaccompanied Minors. Have a great trip!

Having the letter may ease your mind, and I've heard of other travelers bringing copies of birth certificates, but according to the guidelines you won't need those things.
