If you’re jetting off, remember to check your passport’s expiry date before you book. Some countries demand your passport’s valid for at least six months from arrival, so check the Government’s foreign travel advice before you go.
Renew your passport in plenty of time and it’ll save the hassle and extra cash needed for an urgent trip to the passport office. A standard adult passport is £72.50 if you send it by post. Yet leave this until the very last minute and you risk having to pay £128 for its premium service.
To renew yours, see Gov.uk. Don’t just Google it – we’ve had reports of some being caught out by unofficial websites which charge extra, so always use the official Gov.uk link above to ensure you aren’t caught out.
Always double-check everyone has their passport before you leave
(not when you’re halfway down the motorway!)
