    Hi

    Just a little tip, when we were in Spain we found that some supermarkets, especially Carrefore supermarkets needed identification every time if you used your credit or debit card.

    It is a pain to carry round your passport, so we took our bus pass - and it was accepted every time.

    Hi,

    We have scanned and reduced our passports down to a credit card size and laminated them, it only took 10/15 Min's and it is always accepted, just the front page and the page with your main details and photo.

    Thats a good idea! We don't like to carry driving licences round with us, and this would be a great alternative. If we lost/had stolen our bus pass it would not be a great inconvenience, a lost driving licence certain would.
