  1. How market forces dictate prices. I need to go to France on saturday, to take some furniture etc over. The Tunnel seems to be a no go at the moment for a day tripper and in any event delays are uncertain. P&O quote £126 for a day trip and Sea France £160+. ( Usually £50-60). I telephone to be told space on the ferry was at a premium......ouch... i think i will wait   kim
  2. well i thik i will give up the tunnel until its up and running properly...   god i hope that sea is calm   kim
  3. hi im sure each case turns on its particular facts, and may include verbal or written agreements. in your case i suggest your words..we accept your offer... would be sufficient but depending on what the wording of the offer is?   in a case where and offer is made and a cheque enlcosed, i suggest that cashing the cheque is accepting the offer.   however, i specialise in criminal law...ha   kim  
  4. hi i need to travel on 12th october and was told not to book. they are apparantly reviewing their position on a weekly basis and i was told to leave it as late as possible before booking. i was then advised by them to go by ferry....   kim

  6. Eurotunnel chairman Jacque Gounon - who earlier said they hoped to return to half capacity during Friday - said the north tunnel, where the fire took place, would be closed for several weeks. The BBC's Europe editor, Mark Mardell, said Mr Gounon would not speculate on the cause of the fire, saying only that nothing had been ruled out or in. He added an investigation could only begin once the affected area had cooled down enough to enable the removal of the train. France's transport minister Dominique Bussereau told French radio station Europe-1 the cause appeared to be "something accidental".   kim

  20. Im furnishing a maison seconde slowly in Dept 62. Living otherwise on the South coast of UK, I bought locally and the firm delivered for free to France.  It was just before xmas and he combined it with a booze cruise...He has said if I spend £1000 again he would do the same.  It was new, solid oak and I couldnt find the like in France The beds and the 3 piece suite I bought locally in France.  They were delivered and assembled for free, and although 1/3 more expensive than the Uk, I dont have access to a van etc, so I thought it was money well spent.   Hope it helps   KIM
  21. Turning up early for my shuttle back to the UK, I thought Id stock up at the terminal, only to be ushered onto the next shuttle.Everyone was being directed straight to customs, regardless of their letter, and werent being allowed to stop. I can only think they were experiancing a lull, with a sking surge rapidly approaching? kim
