    8 year old travelling abroad without parents.

    My 8 year old son is going to Mallorca tomorrow for 5 days with his Aunt and Uncle... does he need a formal letter of permission from us (his parents) to say that we are allowing him to travel with other relations?

    I've heard about things like notarized letters before but is that just an American thing??

    Leaving it a bit late in asking now aren't you?:p



    Not really, doesn't take long to write a letter? ;-)

    this is not quite the same but we took my sons girlfriend with us on holiday & for the travel insurance we had to get a permission to travel letter of consent from her parents & give to the insurance company.

    i would put a letter in with travel docs just in case and maybe copies of the parents passport.

    I don't know Carley, perhaps one of the HUKD legal experts will pop in,but I did find this form, which you could fill in anyway maybe - it won't hurt to have something.
    Can't seem to copy and paste. It's the first one on this page:

    Legally yes, otherwise all insurance docs will be invalid. The parents have to offer temporary custody etc.

    my friend is off away on holiday and one of her daughters is travelling with her parents, they are all going but the daughter who is going with her parents requires this permission (she is also staying on the boat with her grandparents) she has been told even though they are going together they need this permission.

    Thank-you for all your responses :thumbsup:

    My sister took my son across to France and needed a letter of consent from me.

    it is ok for her to travel with others on a valid passport - but god forbid anything happens to her and she needs medical treatment she will not get it until a signed form from the legal guardian is present therefore you need to write a letter saying that the aunt and uncle are the legal guardians of your daughter during that period
    should be he and son - sorry for some reason i had female in my mind

    hi, I took my neice away on hols in july , on way back at passport control I was advised I should have had a letter from parents authorising me taking her out of country, they also questioned my neice as to where her parents were. I definately would get a letter from parents to be on safe side. It was weird because nobody questioned me on way out of country but on way back in which made no sense to me.

    i would write a letter to be on the safe side...and you might feel better knowing you have.
