This might be a stupid question, but I would appreciate the help anyway, because I am trying to avoid as many problems as possible :) I am traveling to Europe this summer for 6 weeks, and my passport expires June 2009. I know that it's okay to use my old passport because it's valid until over a year after my trip, but is there any advantage to getting a new one (they have chips now, etc.... right?)? I didn't know if having a newer one would make air travel between countries any easier.
thanks for any advice/opinions!
