Passports

Clients intending to travel are strongly advised to check the validity of their passport, as well as the validity of the passports of those travelling with them, as early on in the booking process as possible.  Many countries, (and indeed some airlines), insist that travellers’ passports have at least 6 months validity beyond their return date, or they may be refused entry.  Some countries also specify that no matter when a passport is due to expire that it has a specified number of blank pages in order to accommodate visas / official stamps etc.  UK passport holders are urged to check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website regularly for up to date travel advice and entry requirements by country.
