    Default Need a passport?

    strange question but direct.gov website is pants for answers any way we are looking at going to Disneyland Paris next year but mine and the wife's passport expires in about 2 months but we are not interested in going abroad agian after Disney and in the last 10 years we've been once so to ask the question of do we NEED a passport to travel for a 3 day trip at a cost of 72.50 each x2 obviously the little kid needs one but soon it racks up the cost I've heard you can go on your drivers license? we will be traveling on eurostar dos this make any difference.

    You will need to get a new one which will do you another 10 years. kids are 5 years I think. And yes it's a big cost I had to get 5 last year 2 adults and 3 children's passports ouch!!

    I'm sure you can use your driving license for a trip like this, as long as its the photo version and in date?

    You will go through passport control, in BOTH directions, and you need to be able to produce one if asked to.

    Passports are there to show that you are permitted to travel. In your instance, it will show that you are not a South American / Cuban / Russian etc. It is more about proving who you are not, rather than proving who you are in terms of citizenship.

    Yes, it makes a difference on the mode of transport
    As you are travelling by Eurostar, you will be allowed to travel so long as the passport is valid on the outward portion AND you have return tickets
    If you only have single tickets, then it MUST be valid for at least 6 months
