Hi,
our kids will be 2 years and 2 weeks when we're planning a domestic trip.

What type of documentation will they ask for, when traveling domestically? (in other words, can we get away with not buying a ticket for them?)

for international flights, they checked their passports. If they check their passports flying domestically, they'll notice they're over 2, and will require a ticket. Is there anyway to make this happen?

By them a ticket. They will be safer in a car seat. They can and often do request copies of birth certificates for lap babies who look like they could be near or over the age cut off. If this happens you could be either not allowed to fly or required to purchase expensive "walk up" fare tickets for the kids.

Clarifying because you seem to contradict yourself.

The title of your thread is "Traveling with kids under 2 years old!"

Then you say "our kids will be 2 years and 2 weeks when we're planning a domestic trip."

Is it one child that is two years old and one that is 2 weeks old, or twins who will be 2 weeks past their 2nd birthday?

If they are past their 2nd birthday, sorry but I'm of the opinion that once you reach an age limit, you've reached the limit. Trying to "get away" with pretending they're a different age is fraud.

I think you mean apexgds, but whatever.

Soooo ... it's okay as long as you don't get caught, right? Wouldn't that mean you're doing something fraudulent?

Seriously, you can't do it. The airline will ask for their birth certificates (or passports) unless they are obviously infants and if you can't produce them showing they are under two you will denied boarding or required to purchase two walk up fare tickets. This isn't an airline rule, this is Federal Law. Either buy them tickets, drive, or stay home.

You must prove that the child is under 2 years old using documentations such as birth certificate or passport. If you are going on a trip and your child turns 2 during the trip, you will need a ticket for the return flight so it's better to just get the tickets.

I hope you are not seriously thinking about trying to board them without their tickets. It may be an expensive lesson when you come to find out that you can't even get the two additional seats at time of flight. I believe most airline issue waiver documents for under 2 toddler and you are not getting that without proof. Remember.. One someone stated.. There are Federal Laws. Every passenger needs to be accounted for.
