  1. Yes good point, I keep forgetting that.
  2. I will be going out on the 14:45 from Portsmouth. Anyone know if they are still sending text messages on the day to change departure to 15:30? Last time they missed a few people off the text list, luckily I knew about it thanks to this site and called them to check. It must have annoyed the people who had not received the text, it was a hot day to sit in a car at Portsmouth.
  3. Well just got back on Bretagne. Just a word of warning, the stupid uk gov passenger locator form is not only a bit rubbish, but also the confirmation email you get shows that is has attached the form, but is occasionally not actually attaching it. So had an annoying visit to the shed to explain I had filled it in. So best to download the form, rather than rely on the email. As a Uk civil servant, I am shocked that they would release into use such a bad form that has obviously not been properly reviewed before release. Where I work, everything is fully reviewed.
  4. Hi all, just to say, just took advantage of the few cancellations they have had to rebook from Le Havre to St Malo on Monday. I had an economy ticket and paid no amendment fee. It was £2 more St Malo, but saves me £42 in fuel and tolls. So it looks like there are no amendment fees at the moment. (Glad I did not pay extra for a Flexi ticket now). Also get a trip on Bretagne in case this is her last few days.
  5. Well I am in France again and will face yet another 14 day quarantine as I got stuffed by the last one (that one really was a demonstration of mismanagement). But I suspected we would get stuck again and I factored it in and quite frankly the chance to be in France and away from the UK is well worth the price of 14 days. My boy will miss the start of school, but then we were not very happy with him going back into classrooms of 30 kids where social distancing is not possible. The school sent out loads of threatening letters a few weeks ago saying parents would face fines if kids did not r
  6. Yes, my understanding is that I am stuck for 14 days regardless... Maybe I can still go out even if I develop Covid symptoms and just say that I am testing my eyesight? Strange thing is my family who stayed here and are now supporting my new housebound routine are of course not quarantined. I think this quarantine rule is a bit like quantum mechanics - if you think you understand it, then you don't...
  7. Hi all, Just thought I would say I am back, returned from Caen on the overnight (Mont St Michael). Only two booths open as passport control on the UK side and Customs were out in force checking vehicles (presumably gearing up for no deal Brexit at the end of the year). Not bad on ferry, one way system, masks mandatory, but no hot breakfasts and it seemed more expensive that normal. Used up the whole £8.50 allowance on a pain au choc, coffee, apple juice, croissant and one of those pointless 40g cereal 3 spoon packs. Fortunately I had remember tea bags and a meal for last night
  8. Hi All, just thought I would say I am in France now. Went Eurotunnel, all very slick but a very long drive... No instructions or even any mention of quarantine. Everyone over here is welcoming. Now will see how I will get back on the 29th... fearing another cancellation, which will mean another 6hour trip to Calais. Take care, Bob
  9. Hi all, I am getting a bit confused and I now have 4 RCNs... So 15th June (2 Days time) French border opens. The 100km rule is off. The French have said that quarantine is voluntary and only for people arriving by air anyway. Quarantine on UK side is likely to end on the 29th June. Brittany Ferries have said they will carry people on exempt list. So why are Brittany Ferries not allowing travel for normal passengers from the 15th June? I am booking Eurotunnel for the 17th and hoping to return Caen - Portsmouth on the 29th June. I am pretty fed up with pol
