There is no doubt that having a travel company cancel your holiday at short notice through circumstances beyond your control can be devastating. You may have saved money and made plans for months or even years for your dream break and suddenly, they tell you that you can’t go. It is particularly heart-breaking if the holiday marked a once in a lifetime opportunity, or an anniversary or if it was a planned honeymoon.

Reasons for cancellations can vary. The hotel you were heading for may have burnt down or gone bankrupt. The travel company itself may be in difficulties. War, revolution or terrorist alerts might have led to the cancellations of all travel to the country you hoped to visit.

The holiday company you booked your break with should be a registered accredited travel agency with an organization such as The Association Of British Travel Agents (ABTA) or you may get nothing back at all. An accredited company should have offered you an agreement to compensation and your travel insurance should help too. They will often cover you if your break is cancelled due to serious illness or bereavement too.

The main assistance you’ll get to future holidays is monies returned from your initial bookings and the travel agents may and should offer generous discounts on flights, cruises and hotels you may wish to consider for future Summer (or even Winter) breaks.

If the main problem is with your flights, you are almost certainly going to be covered by the Civil Aviation Authority CAA) If your holiday is scuppered by flight delays full compensation for the flight, including a return flight, should be covered.

Credit card companies also be obliged to offer compensation for monies you spent on your holiday preparation through their cards.

A travel company who have let down customers will be keen to make amends so barter with them for the best deal possible. You might have only been trying for a European vacation when things went pear shaped but try to negotiate for something more exotic, such as a trip to Australia. Be polite and patient while making it clear that you will complain through every channel necessary. Travel companies depend on traveller feedback and word of mouth, so negative feedback is bad for business. If they know they messed up they will go out of their way to make it up to you. Make the most of it.

If the holiday company offers you only a holiday of the same financial value as the one you were due to take it is worth holding out for a better deal. They could offer you a cheaper holiday and flight package than you initially wanted but if so you are entitled to the financial difference between the cancelled break and the replacement one. If the sum is substantial it could cover your spending money for the vacation too.

Don’t forget that as well as the holiday time itself, you may have spent money preparing for the holiday, buying a new camera, scuba gear, books on the region to visit, etc. You may be entitled to compensation there too. There may also be lost earnings as you planned your time off work around the vacation. Know your holiday contract. Know your insurance rights. Check consumer rights, advice bureau, relevant airline and legal, and travel operator rights websites thoroughly, ideally before booking your holiday.

The trend of overseas travel has increased more than ever and so as the number of passport circulation. In 2010, more than one million passports were issued which is reason enough to define the scope of travel and must-have documents. Passports fall into four categories namely; regular, official, diplomatic and passport cards. The term “P-Type” isn’t a specific type but rather a document with letter “P” denoting “passport”.

Let’s have a look at different passports and required paperwork.

1. Regular

Regular passport is issued to the natives who at the time of application must present a certified copy of birth certificates bearing registrar’s seal of office and initials. Non-native candidates who are indeed citizens should cater naturalisation and citizenship certificates; a consular report of birth in a foreign land can be provided as well.

2. Official

This type of passport is best defined through the statement put forward by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security which is;

“Official passport is dispensed to a government employee or official,travelling offshore for business purpose”

Family members of the government personnel can also qualify for this P-type however they also need abiding to the detailed paperwork.

3. Diplomatic

Officers of the Foreign Service or other individuals travelling abroad to execute diplomatic duties for government are given these passports. Like “official”, diplomatic family members are also eligible following the common procedure.

4. Passport cards

Passport card isn’t a complete traveller’sdocument and bearerisn’t allowed moving internationally to most countries. If you’re a resident of the U.S. it’s only valid for domestic commuting and between Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean.

Finding the “P-Type

All of the above documents contain a specific data page that asks for a photograph, name, nationality, passport number, gender, birth place (city), endorsements, issuance and expiry dates. The page also highlights code and type which would define the “P”. You can easily spot it right under the country heading on the left side, next to the photograph.

 Essential Documents

Obtaining a passport is a gateway to a world of travel privileges. The process can be long and tiring as you need to understand about the required documents and how they can save a lot of time. Here’s a comprehensive checklist of required paperwork!

1. Passport Application Form

The first and foremost step is to fill out the application form. If applicant is above 16 years, he’s eligible to fill it up individually or else parents/legal guardians must do the honor. With internet, it can now be filled online and hardly takes 30 minutes.

2. Citizenship Document

Applicant must also conjure citizenship documentation in the country where they’ve plans to move. Form of a previously issued and unspoiled passport, birth and naturalisation certificates would also suffice.

3. Government ID & Photographs

Many applicants go for a driver’s license or previously issued passports to save time, cost and effort. Military identification and naturalisation certificates are also acceptable. Make sure you’ve attached a fresh photograph with plain blue background and a clearly visible face.

Conclusion

In order to qualify for the U.K. residency or for any place else, the first step is obtaining a passport so you better understand the details as given.
