Looking at booking another lanzarote holiday for next October, want to take my grandparents. My grandad's passport runs out in may but will qualify for a free one after his birthday on 4th October, as he turns 80, I believe.
our holiday dates are pretty fixed as im a teacher, booking during our fortnight's October break, which is generally a matter of days after 4th Oct. This year the holidays actually started 4th and we flew out on 10th.
My question is, can he apply for his free passport before his birthday? Applying for a new one after his birthday won't give us enough time! Any advice gratefully recieved :-)
