    travel documents uk 14th Jul 17 at 2:08 PM
    Hi All and good afternoon...

    Been trying to get an answer from easyjet but no joy!

    I've booked a flight for my daughter (age 24 uk national) flying from Bristol to Glasgow next week, she doesn't have access to her passport it's been sent away for a visa application. What other document can she use (doesn’t have a driving license) the only thing she has with a picture is her 18-24 railcard, would this be acceptable?

    Many thanks

    ID for UK domestic flights - what can you take?
    If you are flying within the UK you must be able to identify yourself with a form of photographic ID. Here's a list to show you what forms will be accepted at check-in:
    • A valid passport - an expired passport can be used up to a maximum of five years after expiry
    • Valid photographic EU or Swiss national identity card
    • Valid photographic driving licence, provisional or full
    • Valid armed forces identity card
    • Valid police warrant card/badge
    • Valid airport employees security identity pass
    • CitizenCard
    • Valid photographic firearm certificate
    • Valid Government-issued identity card
    • SMART card
    • Electoral identity card
    • Pension Book (the only acceptable form of non-photographic identification)
    Passengers must present one of the above forms of valid photographic identification on all UK domestic flights. No other forms of photographic identification are accepted. If you do not have one of the above means of identification, easyJet cannot accept you for travel.

    Does she have an expired passport?

    Best to get your daughter to confirm as soon as possible exactly when the old passport expired just in case it's more than 5 years ago.

    Well I could have said they let me on board with a bus pass in 1994 but I'd suggest a link to the airline concerned and absolute clarity about the acceptability of passports declined or otherwise is going to be superior in every way.

    Petulant child? I'm not sure you're grown up enough to get on a plane alone.

    Blight it. I'm the only person in the house who can cop a plane. Husband can't drive, lads likewise so I'd better sort them Some kind of ID. Validate, here I come (clutching money & countersigned photocopies...)

    Smartcard is a bit vague these days - they surely can't mean this sort of thing has the same oomph as an old passport?

    If the passport expired near the maximum time allowed that would be when your daughter was 19, so it would have had a photo taken when she was 14. Makes you wonder how many people look identifiable from a photo on a previous passport.

    But yes, if it is in the rules it is allowed.
