This is from Simon Calder - travel writers website

" Even though Tenerife and the rest of the Canary Islands are, for customs' purposes, outside the European Union (which is why you can buy duty-free booze, and why there is a limit on the cigarettes you can bring back), for passport purposes they are firmly within the EU.

And that means you can travel to the Canaries, or indeed any other part of any other member state, up to the last day of passport validity."

Renew it, then you know for certain there'll be problems.

Cannot understand why you want to chance things.

It does only need to be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. You've got a bit of extra validity left on your passport anyway which you should always have in case of any unforeseen problems delaying you from getting home.
