How long should I have left on my passport in order to travel?

For British citizens, the majority of countries require a passport to be valid for at least three to six months after your trip finishes, therefore, it's often best to make sure your passport is valid for at least six months from your return date. However, many European countries do not enforce the six month rule and may only require validty for the duration of your holiday.

Visit the HM Passport Office website and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website for more details.
