Daughter born in Canada is off for a 6 week vacation to Europe next week, she will go and return with her Canadian Passport ,but as i am a British citizen she also has a British passport by decent, she wants to take both passports as there is some financial benefits to being a British Citizen on some of the tours and events.
Can any one think of any problems that may occur by being in possession of two legal passports?
Thanks

There is no problem as long as you use the same passport to leave and return to the country. There is financial benefit, however. Some countries, especially in South America, charge to enter the country with a US passport. EU passports, I'm not certain about the UK, are exempt from this charge. Things might be a little different with Canada, but there is sure a benefit to holding dual citizenship.

There are no problems in carrying to legal passports. As already said sometimes it is more beneficial to use one rather than the other sometimes but you do need enter and exit countries using the same passport.

i always travel with my 2 passports. Just use the same one to enter and exit and you wont have a problem. Europe is not a problem at all.

I have seen people travel with two passports of same country. Imagine a situation where 5 years visa is affixed on your passport. But your passport expires in 2 years. Then one has to carry a new passport for validity and old expired passport for that visa sticker. It is perfectly legal.

Not at all, I have dual citizenship too (Spain one of them) and I always travel with my two passports. Getting into the EU I always show my Spanish passport, coming back to the U.S I use my American passport.

I wouldn't try to travel using two passports as travel documents. You can run into a problem if you get off a plane and present a passport that has no exit stamp from the place where you got on the plane.

But no problem carrying a second passport, to use within the country as a local ID, in order to represent yourself there as a national.

There is no problem traveling with two passports. As a dual national, I have traveled to Australia, used my Oz pp to get in without visa, returned to US and used my U.S. PP to get back in without visa. Obviously if customs wants to know how you managed this, you show the other pp.

(It's always best not to be using an American pp overseas, IMHO.)
