Passport, EHIC.. Brits are so forgetful
Department of Health issues reminder to all British holidaymakers travelling in Europe this summer: Brits are putting themselves at risk by not carrying in-date documents.
By TTM on 22 May 2008 in Travel Articles
A new survey released today by the Department of Health reveals that we are forgetting to check the validity of documents like car tax, bankcards and even our passports, which means they may have expired when we need them most… at the check-in desk! When it comes to travelling abroad, 20% of people don’t know when their passport expires. Therefore, it’s hardly surprising to learn that 4.2 million Brits have had to rush to the Passport Office in the weeks prior to their holiday to renew it and 1.2 million have even missed out on their holiday because their passport was out of date.
 Tickbox.net research based on a UK population of 60 million and representative of 7% of those polled equates to 4.2 million
