Should be fine as you dont need a visa, it is only places where you need a visa where you world need it to be valid for longer than your stay, i.e. From past experience America.

in the EU it is fine to have passports that are out of date soon.
That will be OK!

If it were me I would check first as I had to have over 6 months on mine last year for Marakesh ( Morocco, I didn't need a visa there either )

How long must my passport be valid for my travel abroad?
Most countries require that your passport be valid for at least six months beyond the completion of your trip. If your passport expires before the required validity, you must apply for a passport renewal. Please view the ]VISAS section to determine how long your passport must be valid for your specific country of travel. If you must renew your UK passport, CIBT can assist. Please view the "Passport Renewal" information under the ]PASSPORTS section for details.

My friend going to Turkey June I think and her boys passports runs out after then so she had to get them renewed or something. I'd look on main website or phone up if you in doubt.

Are you checking online?

I've travelled in EU with one that expired within a month and it was ok. They do mention it and say hey get a new one but didn't stop entrance.

Spain is the only country at the mo that you can travel to with an expired passport. I am not sure about Sweden but with Greece you need 3 months validity so I would definately check it out

If you check in online with FR you need to be careful as they stipulate you can't do it if your passport expires within a month. I totally overlooked this when i went to newquay and thought whoops at then end back at stansted lol
