    Doesn't need 6 months in Europe.

    According to the link above, Tenerife is considered part of Europe.

    Check with the airline though as some of them have their own restrictions. Personally I'd renew it first anyway as what if you are delayed for any reason? (Stayed away extra 9 days before when nipper got chickenpox)

    just renew the passport and they will add the 6 months you currently have to the new passport date, then no issues and no worry when you want to travel

    I would also renew, just to be safe. It takes 3 weeks to get a passport from when you send it, according to the .gov site.

    I cocked up with my last one and had to go and sit in Peterborough for the day to get it turned around while I waited. It wasn't too bad tbh, think I was home by 6pm at the latest and it was a couple of hours drive!

    You'll be allowed in the country... BUT a lot of travel companies and airlines insist on the 6 months. As has been said , if it's renewed now then the time gets added on
