Welcome to Martin Randall Travel, the leading specialist in cultural holidays

Important message: passport validity

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must follow the Schengen area passport requirements.

Your passport must be:

– Issued less than 10 years before the date you enter the country (check the ‘date of issue’);
– Valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’).

You must check your passport meets these requirements before you travel. If your passport was issued before 1 October 2018, extra months may have been added to its expiry date.
