    Brittany Ferries BETA site

    Seems pretty good it’s been a long time coming though so it should be pretty polished.

    The dangers of Airbnb.

    As I’ve said it’s fine until something goes wrong , apparently it’s just as bad for owners if their property are damaged by renters. I’m sure there are plenty forum members who have good experiences , I was merely highlighting the pitfalls if it goes wrong. https://www.asherfergusson.com/airbnb/

    The dangers of Airbnb.

    I think it’s more to do with their couldn’t give a damn attitude when something goes wrong. Gites de France and Holiday France properties are inspected every year and there are more quality control checks in place Airbnb is just a soulless American platform.

    The dangers of Airbnb.

    It’s actually tonight they are sailing back , which could be interesting I told them to stay another night. @Khaines I certainly have and would never use Airbnb and my parents won’t be using it ever again now.

    The dangers of Airbnb.

    As I posted in another thread my parents sailed out with us on the 31st of August , they had a wonderful 2 weeks in a Clevances Gite in Lesconil and then drove to their perfectly reviewed on Airbnb Gite in the Loire. When they got their the Gite turned out to be what can only be described as a dirty hovel, a mould filled fridge with rotten food in it and dirt everywhere, including a soiled materess , needles to say they didn’t stay and booked into a lovely nearby hotel. My father contacted Airbnb and received absolutely no interest in his complaint, I will help sort things out when he gets home which will be today as they cut their losses and are sailing home on Normandie as I type this. I’m sure there are good places to stay on Airbnb but take this as a warning don’t always trust glowing reviews on their site.

    Migrant Issues at BF Ports

    I’m not naive in the slightest I know a lot about the migration issues in France and the reality is often a lot more complicated than plucking a “”it costs this figure to cross the med “ stastistc out of the Daily M*il handbook. Talking about fake id. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/04/12/french-police-accused-falsifying-migrants-documents-can-send/ And there’s plenty die in their attempt to get to France whether it crossing the Alps from Italy or drowning in the sea before they reach Europe. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/09/03/migrant-death-rate-mediterranean-rises-despite-fewer-crossings/

    Migrant Issues at BF Ports

    How many immigrants have top end smart phones? And how is that related to fake ID cards? I thought I was reading the Daily M*il for a minute there.

    New BF Fleet Tracker

    I see you can use it to roughly measure the distance between ports as well.

    Just read about this ship on Facebook, as they say “stranger things happen at sea” http://www.msborea.fi/www/

    Bretagne out and back .

    The hotel we stayed at in St Malos garage was very similar to deck 5 on Bretagne it took a 20 point turn to get it parked , the room was a lot bigger than a cabin on Bretagne though. On a side note I did notice the free onboard WiFi worked a lot better than on any other sailing I had been on.

    There certainly doesn’t seem to be any shortage of hotels in Saint Malo.

    I would suspect BF will find a use for the ship unless French law changes you won’t see gambling machines again.
