Ha ha, oh ouch, but YDI, you should've checked it out beforehand. Still sucks majorly though =/.
How could that happen? To book a ticket to most places you have to have at least six months validity on your passport. How could you book?
YDI, who DOESN'T know that you have to make sure your passport doesn't expire before you leave your country??? You don't even live in the EU, so you have no excuse (I guess some EU citizens might forget about their passports, since we don't need them inside the EU...)
Its not hard to forget when your passport expires; they're good for 10 YEARS. My family once went on a trip to Paris and my dad didn't realize that his passport would expire before we landed. its not a big deal OP; most airlines will let you change the date of your flight for a small or no fee. Go to the passport office on the next business day and just get it renewed.
You're right, it's not hard to forget, but the point is, OP should have checked. I have a passport and have no idea when it expires, however, I do know I got it a few years back so I have a good 6 or 7 years before I have to renew it, but you know what? Before I buy expensive pane tickets, I'd still check! Because it's easy to slip up and assume its still valid when it's not. So, it's the OP's fault.
