anywhere in the EU as long as the passport is valid to and from you can have one day left on and its is still valid in the EU
A LOT OF COUNTRIES OUTSIDE TO EU REQUIRE AT LEAST 6 MONTHS LEFT ON THE PASSPORT ON THE RERURN DATE YOU WILL BE OK I WENT SATURDAY AND MINE EXPIRES NEXT MONTH SO I KNOW FOR A FACT YOU WILL BE OK i did only go for the day by the way

You'll be fine going to Spain as long as you're home before it runs out! It's places you need a visa to visit (ie. Australia/New Zealand etc) that is the prob....then you normally need to be home 6 months before your passport runs out!

as long as it is valid for the return journey you will be ok. if it is going to expire whilst you are out of the country you need a new one

I was told by Easyjet they would allow me to travel up to 6 months after expiry, but only to Spain. That was 2 years ago though.

Are you British? If so, you will be fine as long you leave Spain before your passport expires.

You have plenty of time left.....................my neighbours mum actually got to the airport for her flight to Malaga, no idea her paspport had run out, the guy on the desk said get it done as soon as you get home, BUT added she was OK to use it inside Europe for up to 12 months, I will stand corrected on this point the old dear might have got it around her neck, but that is what she told her daughter, has anyone else been told this????

I recently went to Spain and noticed I had 5 months left on my passport. I rang to check and was told to get a new one and the extra 5 months was added to my new passport.

You have to have at least 6 months left before you travel to get anywhere.

Your passport is currant right up to the final day. It depends how long you are planning to stay, if you are going to return to the UK before your passport expires then no problem!

Fine, as long as you get back before it runs out

As long as you come back before it expires, not a problem.

Going is fine, It's getting back they do all the checks...

I think you'll find that your passport should still have at least six months left to run AFTER your holiday....best check with your travel agent, but i know that this rule applies when travelling to and from Cyprus!
