    I read some horror stories about Philadelphia, but we got through customs in minutes in 2014. It was the 4th July though, so the airport was pretty quiet

    Didn't take us too long in June. It really depends what time your flight arrives i.e. how many other flights have also just offloaded

    Return flight ticket
    Hotel booking info if they need to call
    Passport Biometric chip
    Driving license
    Credit cards
    Value of anything watch cash gold ingots etc over 10,000 usd has to be declared, that was last time I was there.
    and do not try to be smart with them, they have no humor, and will turn you around on next flight.

    It’s all on-line. Your airline will check it (electronically against a database) before you fly. So any errors/omissions are picked up in the UK before you travel (no need to go to Dublin as someone else suggested ). No need to keep a paper copy.

    It makes no sense does it? The AA says you do need one and then explains that its purpose is to translate your licence into english. In Florida it’s required by law! I know the septics have a very different version of our language but surely their cops can read english

    You don't need an international drivers licence and if you do get stopped, they don't really know what they are looking at! They are more interested in your insurance which you will have handy and they do check that on their database.

    Once you have your ESTA, you are good to go but I do carry a copy when I go through US customs just in case! US cutoms and immigration are notoriously fickle.

    Also, because I go there regularly, I go through the unmanned hi speed border (if the airport has one) and have it in case of a random check.
