  1. Exactly my plan.

    Diesel is so cheap in France and my trip contains two identical legs, so I thought I'd give it a try.

    Sarcasm passed me by as Le Mans to me is a crescent in Bolton
  2. Good.

    So where do you buy?

    Car is just a tool to me, I don't follow motor racing
  3. Back on diesel after a few years of petrol. I have 1500km trip next month so thought I'd treat my engine to some premium fuel, bearing in mind how much cheaper it is compared to UK.. Curious to see if it provides any benefits.

    So, do any of the supermarket chains sell premium gazole, or will I have to stick to the brands?
  4. Thanks.

    "Stockage" was the keyword.

    I've now found what I'm looking for

  5. Has self storage reached the area yet. Looking for something within reasonable distance of Magnac Laval
  6. Anyone planning to travel back either the first week of November


    from 8/12 until start of xmas rush?

    I have furniture and stuff that needs to come back. Load dependent on your free space.

  7. My replacement Britline card won't arrive before I head across the channel agfain, so I've treated myself to a Post Office Euro card. Do these work OK now on automated supermarket pumps?
  8. .....anyone doing it ?

    Any contacts for shipping etc.
  9. Many thanks to everyone who provided me with invaluable advice
  10. Thanks. But I need an immobilier for a specific reason and also one who is currently trading.

  11. Please PM me if you have details of a good local english speaking agent who is also currently trading

  12. Is this anytime in the recent past ? It certainly wouldn't be the experience of anyone with that degree of disability any time in the last 15 years.

  13. Part of the reason they'll only rent to credit card holders, so they can bill you are their leisure
  14. What sort of value is being placed in this curio ?
  15. Don't assume you'll find a room in one of these that easily. They're the staple accomodation of white van man and other business travellers and are very busy during the week, often block booked by some companies, even if they don't actually use the room. Weekends are different and easier to find a room
  16. Fundamentally, your local Avis, Hertz etc. is a franchise and owns/leases all the vehicles. they therefore want them back when you've finished with it. If you leave it 500 miles away, they'll have to send someone to collect it and you'll have to cover that cost. If you want to do a one way hire that gives them too much grief, if easier for them to say no.

    There's a point at which they really don't need your business 

  17. At what point did the shipping agent in Yemen not say to themselves "Why are we shipping a $90 printer to Chicago ?"
  18. Work on the assumption that Ryanair, Easyjet et al are offering a route and flight times for the season for which they've published them, either winter or summer. There's no guarantee that they'll fly there in subsequent seasons and a full plane is no indicator. If they get a better subsidy elsewhere, or more profitable traffic, the plane moves  
  19. You are correct; there is an in-built staircase. However, I've never seen it in use; I'm positive that, at Limoges for example, they always use 2 of the normal mobile stairs, one each fore and aft. I wonder if there's a timing element involved? The in-built ones look a bit flimsy, perhaps they're meant for crew use only?


    It's why Ryanair and many other low cost airlines use the 737, they can operate out of airports with limited ground facilities.

  20. You'll probably be fine - until your credit card expires. Make sure you can access your account to change payment details when the new card arrives. If the online functionality doesn't allow for this, because they expect you to be using your bank account, you'll then have a redundant doofer and a black mark on your account.
  21. In Spain a yellow vest is required for the driver and all passengers
