As long as it is valid for your journey you will be fine.

Maybe for Spain (i don't know) but people should be aware that some countries require 6 MONTHS left on your passport.

As i said, check out the link (that's official) and ask your airline if you're unsure.

Travel within the EU will be fine with that expiry date.

send for a new one now while its a quiet time

they will just add the extra few months on to your 10 years

i believe you can apply 9 months in advance of expiry date

Yes travelling within the EU will be fine, but each airline has its on policy and some require 6 months on your passport I think.

Have you got a passport office in Belfast? If you have you can take it in there and get a new passport a little bit quicker. Make sure though as you would be cutting it fine if you want to travel early in January.

Yes, they will add on the extra months to your new passport. Yes, you can travel to Spain in January with the passport you have at the monment.
