  1. Just imagine what it will be like on a bank holiday weekend trying to find a charging point.i see queues to fill up on the motorways and that only takes 5/10 minutes from start to finish.so 50 minutes to charge it will be a nightmare for everyone.to me it is to much of a dash to electric cars and manufacturers will rubbing there hands in glee thinking of the big profits they are going to make.at the moment the cost is very steep and will the price comedown is anyone's guess it is the interests of manufacturers to keep the price high.
  2. This is a very sore point to me,last Monday morning we waited and waited then we had to go through the lottery of security check.the guy said what is that in the back(dog barking at him)I said a dog ,he then said is he friendly and I said no but I would get him out if he wanted to have a look.he then said in future have him on a lead and I said he is in the back of my estate car so does not need a leader on.he than asked what was in the back and I again said a dog and below him was a spare tyre.this did not go to well with him,he then said I want to x ray a case ,no problems I thought but putting case through x ray machine he said it twice more about the dog in that time I was getting hot under the collar,I know they have job to do,he the asked where I came from I said the uk but he was not satisfied with that .he asked where in the uk so I asked him where he came from and he said Bulgaria so in common curtisy a I told him.after further checks he then reminded me to have the dog on a leader next time.WHAT JOBS WORTH HE WAS?mind you when waved through we were guided to our lane but were waved straight through onto ferry.this the first time it has have ever happened in my 50/60 crossings over the years.bit off topic but has sombody has said it is a complete farce when it come to loading,so be prepared to wait a very long time but you never know you may be lucky.have a good trip
  3. It is not free but you supposed to have a hefty discount and remember you are also paying every year to be a member of club voyage.mind you I don't object to this because if you only do one crossing a year it is still a saving.
  4. I think we are just putting it down has a mistake because it was very busy .dont want to get anyone in trouble.
  5. I agree with that I prefer the Spanish way of living and the medical services are 1 st class.maybe 20 years ago it was poor but now it is top of the league.
  6. We were on the cap portsmouth to bilbao on Monday morning,so did not have breakfast on that day.yet on tuesday morning we had breakfast in the restaurant and with our club voyage discount it still cost £8pounds.at the time I thought it was a bit steep and after reading this it looks like we were done either by accident or other reasons.
  7. Just one other point no mention of these delays on brittany ferries website.
  8. Our ferry due to leave Sunday night has been delayed until Monday morning,that means a 3 night stay in hotel for us,we arranged this because we have had to go to a funeral in London on Saturday morning.not to worry it is better it just been delayed then that drive through France.i also see the santander to portsmouth is delayed has well.the joys of travelling in the winter months.
  9. Yes easy targets,that is why you see a fleet of ships to guard the USA carriers.
  10. Many thanks for the info.
  11. Are the aircraft carriers still docked in Portsmouth,we sail out of Portsmouth Sunday and have not seen them yet.
  12. It is like a large coloured bar code,a load of rubbish and at a cost.

    Sky tv

    Just thought I would ask,most of my ferry crossing are the Spanish routes and I have noticed this,as I said before sky tv no bother on the pont but never ever seen it on the cap.just hoping it has been installed on this ferry.tony said it is on most bf ferries so it sames a bit strange it is not the cap for the long Spanish crossings.many thanks

    Sky tv

    I mean the pont ,before anyone mentions it.
  18. Just wondering has the cap got sky tv on board.?in the past it did not have it,yet on the point it did is there reason for this?
  19. Thank you all for the replies you have given ne regarding this subject.i travel to Spain in January and will be coming back end of febuary.as you all know the bay of biscay is not the most friendly place to be when it is in a bad mood.so just in case we are unfortunate to have ferry crossing cancelled.i thought I would check things out.many thanks again for the advice
  20. I got this off internet on advice on travelling to France and Spain.why?
  21. Just another point a few years ago I was taking to hospital with gall stones problems.the treatment was 1 st class and no mention of private insurance as long I had a ehic with me .this was on Spain by the way and I know a few others who had operations just with ehic and they had no problems either.it is all a bit confusing at the moment.i said in earlier post Spain you can use your English driving license until end of 2020 in Spain but in France you need a idp.just wonder if anyone out there knows what the rules are going to be after December this year.
  22. Told the other day that you will have to have a idp in France after 31 January 2020.
  23. If she was made of wood bf would of blamed the rabbits again for the list
