The cost of a UK passport is to rise – by acting now you can save money on this necessary purchase – every penny counts in the current economic climate.

The cost of a 10 year adult passport will rise from £72.00 to £77.50 – a rise of £5.50 or 7.64% of the current price. This increase in price is due to come into effect on 3rd September.

The cost of a child’s passport will also rise – from £46.00 to £49.00 – a rise of £3.00 or 6.52%.

There is therefore a saving to be made by renewing or applying for a passport ahead of this price increase date on 3rd September 2009.

Did you know?

You do not have to wait until your passport expires to renew it – within 9 months of it expiring, any unused time will be carried over onto the new passport – renewing your passport.

Although it’s not a large monetary saving, renewing or applying for your passport before the 3rd September will save you from incurring the large, above inflation increase in passport price.
