passport expiry

My son and I are going on a 2wk holiday to Spain in May. My son's passport expires in September, the travel agent advised me to renew his passport before going, do I really need to?

    I don't see where's the problem, if you will stay in spain for only 2 weeks. It would be a problem if you son was going to stay in spain up to October or later months. You should check at the Spanish Embassy in your country.

    It might depend on your nationality, but generally, I'd say you'd be okay. It is ALWAYS advisable to have a passport valid for six months after your intended date of departure from a country, but for a two-week stay in May (especially if you have confirmed return/onward tickets), I don't see your son's passport expiring in September being a problem.

    Where are you from? Perhaps check with your local Spanish embassy, like Valencia has suggested.
