What is better than a GPS?  Knowing where you're going.  Physical maps are a great way to really learn the lay of the land.  Physical maps also don't run out of battery power.  Better World Club has standard city and state maps as well as bicycle maps of most major cycling areas.  Need a map?  Have a suggestion for the collection?  Maps are free for our members.

Passport Information

First time applicants for passports must take their application to a certified Passport Acceptance Facility in person.  If you are uncertain of what do to, the State Department has a handy Passport Wizard to help you fill out the right documents.  For renewals, lost passports, and other passport matters, click here.

To renew your passport, submit the appropriate form by mail or in person.  Allow 4-6 weeks for standard processing of your passport renewal.

Remember to reduce your carbon footprint where you can.  Offset the rest.

National Park Passes

National Park Service LogoThe National Park Service has been entrusted with the preservation of America's national parks since 1916, and safeguards those very special places for the enjoyment of over 275 million visitors each year.

The Parks Service also assists tribes, local governments, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individual citizens in revitalizing their communities, preserving local history, celebrating local heritage, and creating close to home opportunities for kids and families to get outside, be active, and have fun.

In partnership with the National Parks Service, Better World Club proudly offers National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Passes for sale to our members. Members who purchase Parks Passes through Better World Club pay the same as they would were they to purchase through any other outlet, but we purchase carbon offsets for each pass our members buy. Enjoy our national parks while also helping to preserve them for the enjoyment of future generations.

Log in to the our members only website to purchase your carbon offset pass(es) now!

Quotes From Members

  • "Also, I'm really pleased that I found Better World; it really suits the values of my family and, by the way, my congregation and my grad students. I don't know how many in either group belong to any auto club or travel club, but they surely would be ashamed not to join up with BW if they ever join any. :)"
  • "Thanks again for your prompt and courteous and helpful support."
  • "This claim was the only time so far that we've needed to use our BWC coverage, but it was exactly what we needed in that situation, so we'll definitely keep our memberships active in case we run into issues on future rides!"
  • "You serve your market with intelligence and humor. I didn't feel like I was a family member when I had AAA, but I feel like an important part of a socially-conscious family with you. Keep the newsletters coming."
  • "Thanks very much! I switched to BWC because I believe you share my values and concern for sustainability. The hybrid discount is a great added bonus. It's great to see businesses thrive on a positive progressive message."
  • "My alternator gave out suddenly one night. I was stranded on a frontage road near the freeway, in the dark, in the rain, a couple hundred miles from home late on a weekend night. When I called BWC, your representative asked if I was in a safe place, dispatched a tow truck, and asked if I needed help finding a hotel for the night. Needless to say, I was impressed. It's good to know folks like you have my back!"
  • "Your newsletter is full of stimulating information--not only revealing the truth about companies/regulations that are unfair, unconscious, or downright despicable, but also highlighting positive efforts and developments for a better world. Really appreciate it. And also enjoy your sense of humor."
