I doubt you are going anywhere.

You will not be allowed to board without one.

I don't recall seeing another post like this one. Such a pity, but unless your planes leaves late at night and you can get your passport renewed in the morning you won't be on that plane.

Call the passport office first thing in the morning. They have an emergency option, but it costs a lot more money than the usual renewal. Its worth a shot.

...and I'm quite sure that cancellation insurance will not cover you either!

Wish your friends a great time and don't cry too much into your beer while sitting at home. This is going to be one expensive lesson learned, but I'll bet you will NEVER make it again.

Don't even bother going to the airport as when you show your passport they will give it right back to you and send you home .....sorry ....

There is an emergency service, but it takes 24H...

You have nothing to lose by calling the passport office first thing in the morning, depending at what time yourflight is, but I don't think that you will be able to get a passport in less than 24h...

my first thought was .....this is a joke ? he can't be serious ?????

but, if you can get an emergency passport in 24 hrs, and, can buy a seat on another flight to Varadero ........ you could salvage part of your trip ...... your tour operator shouldn't care that you arrive a day or two late

Without a passport as others have said, you're going nowhere. As for insurance, not going to cover you. Call the number gengen gave. Its worth a shot.

Cheers
