This is a money grabbing site. I'm so furious with myself and the site. Whilst it is fairly clear further down on the home page after revisiting the site that this is a service which is charged for I simply clicked renew at the top. Then throughout the application it didn't seem to mention it at all. £49 to check and send an application to me which I then had to pay for photos and a stamp for. Oh not to mention the still £72.50 for the passport itself. On further inspection had I realised any earlier I would have been subjected to a £15 admin fee for cancellation. I'm utterly disgusted. I only clicked as it was the first result on google should've found the actual passport website.
