  1. Aged 11 can sit in the front:


    which links to:


    Also lists exceptions for under 10 if there is no rear seat but seat belt and child/booster seat requirements still have to be met.

  2. Sorry about your loss,Maria.

    No one appears to have answered your question re insurance. Unfortunately,even if off the road it still has to be insured.

  3. Under "Tariff"


    From Newhaven to Dieppe ring the Newhaven office.

    From Dieppe to Newhaven ring the Dieppe office (English/French speaking)

  4. According to the Impôts website, you can now declare on line without a certificate.  What to do (either way) listed here:


    Still have to have made a first declaration in paper form.

    As I understand it, however, getting a certificate means you can access all your information on line.

    The certificates do expire from time to time but renewal is straightforward

    'everyone beats Scotland dont they ?[/quote]

    Apparently not.[:P][:D]

    Now - Allez les bleus![:D]

  6. As you've raised the matter again I read through the posts.  There is repeated in several "as Scotland Yard takes control of cases in the UK".  Quite inaccurate.[:(]

  7. [quote user="Llantony"]

    We now have a bill for 53 euros for blood tests and I guess we will have to pay then get the money back from Groupama. [/quote]

    You could ring the lab and find out if they have "tiers payant" and, if so, is Groupama one of their companies.  If that is the case they may take your Groupama account details and claim direct from Groupama.  Worth a try.

  8. [quote user="Polly"][quote user="Weegie"]Useful to  remember that Transmanche do a 20% discount for
    • senior over 60 
    • youth under 25
    • student under 27
    • disabled person
    It cannot be done by booking on line but only by telephoning - UK contact number for UK to France and French number for France to UK.

    Booked today for Dieppe to Newhaven return in February.  Car and two was £125 less 20% plus a £2 fee for booking by telephone - Total £102.  A useful saving for those who qualify. 



    This link didn't work, but by footling around I got there, to find that this discount only applies to Newhaven-Dieppe


    That's why it says "Transmanche" ie. Newhaven - Dieppe.

  9. [quote user="NormanH"]It really is very irresponsible to give advice on your limited experience.[/quote]

    Don't see what you can possibly see wrong with the advice.  "If you don't ask,you don't get".

    Seasons Greetings.[:)]

  10. A virement, as mentioned by Jako, is the easiest way.  You need the account details to pay it into including the IBAN number.  There is no charge within the Eurozone.

    If you go into your CA branch they will give you a proforma to complete.  Straightforward and easy.

  11. As you say, according to HMRC, not yet in force.


    Another take on it?


  12. [quote user="Jo"] Get yourselves down to a good legal advisor,  there's no substitute for professional advice.


    Couldn't agree more.

    Especially when one sees this when the question refers to spouses:

    [quote user="Jo"] to buy en tontine just exposes the survivor to up to 60% death duties[/quote]

    [blink] [blink] [blink]

  13. [quote user="Judith"][quote user="Jo"] to buy en tontine just exposes the survivor to up to 60% death duties


    This is news to me, how so?  There is surely (now) no succession tax between spouses? 


    and it never was 60% between spouses before the law change.

  14. The actual toll charges are the same but, as you will know, SANEF have a  charge of  €2 for any month in which it has been used.  ALIS have no "usage" charge.
