    He could possibly get a NATO travel order. They shouldn't really be issued for leave but most units are quite flexible.

    Air Berlin take them as do FlyBe. Not sure about KLM but double check with them. He must have photo ID so his ID card is ok.
     
  4. Some companies can be a bit funny about that, best to make sure he take his driving license just in case.

  8. I know it is a bit late, but anyone looking for a passport quick fix whilst station in germany ,can turn up in person at the passport office at the British consulate in Dusseldorf , Same day service.
    Takes about two hours, saves on the travel worry. Normal paperwork and form filling capers apply.
