    My boyfriend and I are about to book a holiday to Egypt in June, his passport expires in Sept, so my first question is, will he be OK to travel with that?

    If not, will his passport number remain the same if he renews his passport (so gets a new one)?

    Thanks!

    Luckily it didn't ask so we booked. Unfortunately he realised (after) that he has a geology field trip that week (probably). We booked with Thomas Cook and although their helpdesk is closed I've now sent them an email saying I need to change the date of departure to a week later.. the price is different but I am happy to pay the difference, do you think we'll get charged for changing the date of departure?

    Yes your passport number changes anytime you get a new one whether it is for renewal or replacing a lost or stolen one.
    You can usually travel within the EU with a passport that is upto 6months out off date but cannot usually leave the EU if your passport is within 6months of its expirey date.

    Depends on the issuing authority/country really.

    In many places of the world, passport numbers won't change and serve as a universal identification number.

    I'm quite for that system actually since it's far more cleaner, streamlined and easier to work on with regard to cross-department systems.

    Then again, there goes your privacy once it's abused.
