    Need a new passport soon? Do it now to save money......

    The cost of a standard adult UK passport is set to rise from £72 to £77.50 in September but you may be able to avoid the hiked price.

    The cost of a child's passport will also rise by £3 to £49 at the same time.

    Yet if you need to renew your essential holiday document soon, or make a name-change, do so before 3 September and you'll pay the current price.

    When can I renew?

    In theory, you can renew at any time. However, it's only worth doing so if your passport's set to expire within nine months. That's because a new, standard passport will last ten years plus any time left on your current passport, up to a maximum of nine months.

    If, for example, you renew with six months remaining, your new passport will be valid for ten years and six months.

    But if you had a year left, your new passport would only be valid for 10 years and nine months so you'd lose three months which you've paid for.

    Passports will continue to be free for those born before 3 September 1929.

    Thanks for sharing.
    £77.50! That's criminal!

    Ill Share this with you all. Ive just renewed my passport and three child ones. OUCH. Cost over 200 pound. That was without having to go back for the photos 3 times. The first lot were no good as there was glare on our glasses. You would to squint to see it. At the post office the woman told us to put the glasses onto our head, which we did. When we went back we were then told that wasnt allowed. So we went back to get more photos done, at extra cost. What a total waste off time and money.

    It seems its easier and cheaper to get into this country than it is to leave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tip for passport photos etc if to go to a Kodak shop and they take them and size them up for you correctly so they spot on instead wasting cash in them sit in kiosks.

    £3 to £49 for kids?!?!
