Is it country or airline?

Check the rules for where you are busiting.

Yep certain countries (Maldives is one for example) - Europe and the US does not (DS travelled to France, Austria and the US with less than 6 months on his)

Any doubts, check - anywhere else is hearsay.

yep for eu countries (for now) the identification needs to be valid for the whole trip.
so you are ok.

the 6 month thing is visa requirement for certain countries.

No, not for the EU. Until next march , then who knows?

It is country dependent.

Certain countries, yes. Not EU (yet!)

I think it's only certain countries

Just booking our summer holiday and realised our dd1 passport won’t have the full 6 months validity on it (5 months and 3 weeks) when we go to Spain this August. I have checked the government advise page and they say you only need your passport to be valid for the dates of your travel but I always remember needing to have at least 6 months! Has anyone had problems with having less than 6 months on their passport when travelling to Spain recently? Thank’s in advance.
