I need to renew my passport before a trip to Brazil in early April, but I have to travel from the UK to another EU country in 12 days. The earliest fast-track appointment I can get is in 6 days, so the 7-day service would not get my renewed passport back to me in time for the trip within the EU.

As far as I know my current passport is handed in, and cancelled, as part of the renewal application (I may be wrong about this - it's been 10 years since the last time) and as far as I know I cannot use any other documents for travel from the UK to other EU countries. Do I have any other option than paying for the 1-day passport service?

    I think the 1 day service is your only option. – djna Mar 8 '18 at 17:31

    Is it a UK passport? – phoog Mar 8 '18 at 17:41
  • @phoog Yes, UK passport. I have actually booked a 1-day service now, but I'd still be interested to know whether I had any other option. – tardigrade Mar 9 '18 at 11:49
