  1. General Discussions on Brexit

    I am with LV at present but despite thinking that I am covered fully comp in Europe (don't actually believe the misleading small print) I take extra Insurance from Direct Line (Linea Directa) in Europe for belts and braces approach and peace of mind... not expensive. Europe's Police know full well that foreign registered vehicles will always have the minimum third party cover
  2. General Discussions on Brexit

    Comprehensive cover in your own country only extends to third party while driving abroad in Europe unless applying for extra European travel cover OR taking Insurance comprehensive cover from a local based Insurance Company in the country you are visiting.

    My understanding is where you are insured in UK then you are covered to drive in Europe - but third party cover only applies... unless you take insurance cover in the European country you visit....
  4. Kennels on Bretagne

    My memory of this ships kennel facilities are much the same as Angel describes. We have not used the Bretagne for many years - we generally stick to PA and CF but bookings for Pets gets more and more difficult each year. Our cocker spaniel is now in his seventeenth year so his comfort is a priority.

    Here on the Island we are bracing ourselves for "The Beast of the East" - Fuelled up and ready to go,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
  6. General Discussions on Brexit

    Brexit for the Crown Dependencies and Protocol 3 - I hope this is in the right place - although I don't like opening up" links" myself I thought this PDF gives a slightly different view of the Crown Dependencies and the work being done by the IOM Government: Some may find it boring...............sorry https://www.gov.im/media/1356455/2017-04-28-council-of-ministers-fourth-interim-report-v2.pdf
  7. Port Border Issues

    Correct - Even travelling fro IOM to UK by ship or aeroplane you need photo ID. This can be in the form of a valid driving licence, A Passport or a valid bus pass !!!
  8. Pet Travel on the rise

    not exactly - those tasks are undertaken by responsible pet owners and BF deck staff in yellow waterproofs !
  9. Club Voyage

    For a very small increase - Its still good value
  10. Pet Travel on the rise

    A goody bag for our best friends has been provided for a considerable time already
  11. Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    It is going to be interesting to see what BF decide to do here
  12. Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    It will probably be the case that there will be another Club Voyage membership required for the Cork/Santander route
  13. Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    I am sure this new route will be a success and I will certainly use it from IOM/Dublin and drive to Cork rather than IOM/Liverpool or Heysham and then the longish drive down to Portsmouth or Plymouth. Of course I am eager to read fare structure.
  14. Pont Aven 4 berth cabins

    We have tried all cabins over the years to and from Spain and we prefer four berth for two people however two berth are fine - its just for one overnight of maybe eight hours in the cabin. The bunk beds are OK but the metal ladder to access the top bunk can be painful on the feet !!
  15. Complaint handling _BF

    Haa Haaa... a real animal lover here... one problem is just passenger vehicle owners would have to wait behind all those vehicles with pets..
