    I’m unable to post a picture, maybe because it’s my first post

    Who knows without an image but if the bio data page is untouched you might be ok. If not you can apply in person for an emergency passport but it will be expensive. https://www.gov.uk/get-a-passport-urgently

    All you can do is try. If it was any other airline you might be lucky but Ryanair insist on passports. A chewed passport is not valid if there are puncture holes in the data page. Just make sure to bring other photo id as well as the damaged passport.

    Just in case, book an appointment (online premium service)to get a new one. The earliest you can get an appointment is two days from when you apply.

    Good luck, I hope you get away!

    Hi thanks for the advice, everything is readable and both pictures are have no damage, it’s about 20mm on the bottom right hand corner, I’ve already tried for a emergency passport no joy, earlier is fast track 7 days

    You could describe more exactly the damage, whether or not it's the actual data page, swipe strip, RFID circuit etc.

    Anyway the chance of replacing it in time is close to zero and the only real way to find out is to go for it (the trip), nothing much to lose is there..?

    Every page has been chewed slightly on the bottom corner, the last 2 digits are missing after all the arrows on the bottom strip if that makes sense, it’s the new biometric passport with 2 photos so there’s no film over the photo as they are printed

    In which case then I think you are screwed.

    Eh? I highlighted the bit that I was talking about, in red. They need all that bit along the bottom to read the passport.
