  1. According to The Connexxion, unless you have a UK address, it can’t be done. https://www.connexionfrance.com/Practical/Transport/Applying-for-an-international-driving-permit I tried last year, in the end I exchanged my UK licence for a French one using the new on-line system. Took six weeks start to finish. Bob.
  2. Are masks effective? This made my mind up:- https://youtu.be/x6cTDGqcUpA
  3. ITV reporting that an interim agreement has been reached with the stevedores https://www.itv.com/news/channel/2020-07-29/st-malo-sailings-resume-after-agreement-reached-with-stevedores
  4. Colin is right, Bretange going to Cherbourg, eta 15:30hrs.
  5. Going to set of for Caen apparently.
  6. Apparently the dockers are blockading the port, the 8:15 arrivals are not able to disembark, and those waiting to board for the return crossing cannot do so. Police on site. Perhaps Colin knows more? Bob.
  7. How very rude. You have no idea of anybody's financial situation. If I was in a position to utilise my vouchers I may not be so “agitated” and possibly would accept them. But I am not and can ill afford to loose their value. As Garth has said, read what people actually post.
  8. Wortley, have you got one of these vouchers? This is what is stated on my voucher email: “I'm writing to you today to confirm we have had to cancel your upcoming reservation.The global Coronavirus pandemic has forced us to take this extraordinary action, which follows governmental guidance to limit potential health risks for passengers and crew. Please note the cost of this cancelled sailing will be refunded by voucher (details below). The voucher is valid for one year and may be redeemed against any future sailing or inclusive holiday with Brittany Ferries. If you have another
  9. I have two vouchers. NOWHERE have I had it “explained” to me I can eventually exchange them for cash if I don't use them. What really hacks me off is information trickling through from BF onto sites like this via presumably Twitter, Facebook, or even Grindr for all I know, instead of contacting customers direct. I don't do Facebook or Twitter. Until I hear from BF direct, the period of validity of both my vouchers is TWELVE months, and to me, they are worthless. Bob.
  10. I have two vouchers valid now for just under twelve months. Given the latest increase in the lock down in France and the twelve week lockdown I am subjected to in UK, realistically how long will the available time to use them be? Six months, seven months? I can understand BFs statement in Le Telegramme:- https://www.letelegramme.fr/economie/brittany-ferries-les-traversees-suspendues-jusqu-au-22-avril-26-03-2020-12532164.php “It is vitally important and necessary we keep sufficient funds to pay our suppliers and staff.” But it is my money they have held on to for a servic
  11. I now have two vouchers, valid for twelve months. Given the current situation, if Brittany Ferries hit financial difficulties, and was restructured/refinanced, is it likely the vouchers would still be honoured? With regret, I will be asking for a full refund in cash. Bob
  12. Let me guess, tee-time at 11 o’clock on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday😠 No, enjoy the course, if it wasn't for the tourists I doubt it could stay in business. btw, the number of Brittany Ferry golf groups has seen a substantial increase in the last couple of days. I was talking to the Director of Golf and he was getting worried at the lack of bookings for this year - normally have loads by now. He was asking if I thought the “B” word might be putting people off. Personally, I don't think so, but it could be the fall in the exchange rate. Look out for me - I’ll be in one of the b
  13. Yes, but Saint-Malo Golf is possibly a bit better, both worth playing though. Both are in the Brittany Ferries brochure.
