Easyjet ID requirements

I am in a bit of a panic as I have lost my passport and do not have the cash or time to replace it. I am flying with easyjet, Glasgow to Luton in two weeks time and the only other form of ID I have is a UK provisional driving licence. I have already checked in online and I have been advised that I will need to show ID at the gate before boarding, will my provisional license be sufficiant? I have looked on their website and cannot find a clear answer and have also tried calling easyjet, I waited 45mins then hung up as I could not afford to stay on the line any longer ay 30p/min. Can anyone help with this?

1. Re: Easyjet ID requirements

The following are acceptable forms of ID. So as long as your provisional licence has a photo and is valid you should be OK.

UK domestic flights:

A valid passport - an expired passport can be used up to a maximum of two years after expiry

Valid photographic EU or Swiss national identity card

Valid photographic driving licence

Valid armed forces identity card

Valid police warrant card/badge

Valid airport employees security identity pass

A child on parent' s passport is an acceptable form of ID

CitizenCard

Valid photographic firearm certificate

Valid Government-issued identity card

SMART card

Electoral identity card

Pension Book

Passengers must present one of the above forms of valid photographic identification on all UK domestic flights. No other forms of photographic identification are accepted. If you do not have one of the above means of identification, easyJet cannot accept you for travel.

Thank you, I did see this on easyjets website, however my only issue is that it does not state if it is only a full uk driving license or provisional would be acceptable.

Does not matter. They are both issued by the DVLA. As long as you are not gonna ask to drive the plane you will be ok

"As far as I am aware a passport is required for travel to Jersey."

Why do people just make things up as they go along, instead of checking their facts?

Absolutely NO passport required for travel between the Mainland and the Channel Islands. I used to travel to the Channel Islands on a staff ID (and the only reason I no longer travel on a staff ID is that I'm now in a different job which comes without that kind of ID)
