in sept we are taking my daughters friend to turkey with us
besides an authorisation letter from her parents, is there anything else we should do?
our holiday is booked through eclipse, but with a thomsons flight number
own holiday insurance, and do make sure you know if she has any medical problems, allergies etc..
we shall just get a letter stating that mr and mrs xxxxx give permission for mr and mrs xxxxx to take there daughter xxxxxx to turkey on the 18 sept 2008, returning 24 sept 2008.
we also give permission for any medical treatment that may be deemed necessary, to be carried out.
i would think that would do, but i will make sure i take all there phone numbers too, just incase, its queried
Have a lovely time
If you are taking someone else's child on holiday with you, or travelling as a single parent with your own child, it would be worth checking with the Embassy of the country concerned to see if specific evidence of parental responsibility or temporary guardianship is required.
Taking friends daughter on holiday to costa del sol in august she is 17, Do we need to get a letter of permission from her parents to take with us? never gave it a thought till i read this post.
thanks for all the replies!
We weren't asked for anything so we could have been stealing anyone's child and no one would have noticed. Given that it was not long after Madeleine McCann went missing I was quite surprised at the lack of checks.
My 14 year old son is going on holiday with his girlfriend and her dad to Turkey 2 weeks today. Do I need to provide a letter of consent to her dad?
I hadn't even thought about it until reading this.
Her dad has arranged the insurance and I've read the policy and it seems fine to me.
Do I need to state in the letter that I hand over parental responsibility over to him for the duration of the holiday?
Any help greatly appreciated.
we had no problems taking my daughters friend with us, we have even booked her onto our summer 09 hols now...
we took letter of consent, this contained consent for any medical /emergencies too.......
contact details for the friends mum, including all phone numbers, and full adress.....
we also took a seperate travel insurance for daughters friend, that her mum had arranged, this did say on it, it was for a 13 yr old, travelling without parent...
we also made sure the friend knew our full address, phone number, had my numbers in HER mobile phone, so if anything did happen, she had our contacts, to maybe prove she knew us
she aslo had ICE in her phone.......IN CASE OF EMERGENCY.....her mums mobile, so if anything did happen and we needed help, we could find the number asap
