Travel Insurance

Hello guys, Can anyone help me with some information on Annual Travel Insurance. We have been looking on line and most companies are covering UK residents only or cost an arm and a leg. Has anyone used any good companies recently.Many thanks

Oil Spill

Hi Alan
many thanks for that contact. I will call them tomorrow.
I was also surprised that our company Axa was not prepared to do more but hopefully they will get involved later.

Thanks again

Oil Spill

Hi Kate. We have phoned our insurance and because it was caused by someone else they are not really interested, hence the request. Once I get a letter from the Oil delivery company accepting responsibility they will try and help but before that we need someone to look at the damage and assess exactl...

Hi Alan. Thanks for that. We only have one central meter for the whole of our house and barn but each floor has its own fuse box and I am not sure if the adapters will work on this type of circuit. Regarding our wifi speed, for some reason the ethernet connection to the pc failed and despite trying ...

Powerline Adapters

How do these work with French electrics as i thought that the adapters had to be on the same circuit as in a UK ring main system. I have bought a TP LINK TL-WPA4220T Kit but reading all of the blurb I am now not convinced that it will work on my French electrics. Any thoughts or anyone used this sys...

Hi CPB.

Snow is still falling and the forecast is for it to continue for several days but who knows how heavy it will be. Cars are getting round with chains on. Have a look at our Pyrenean Trails Facebook site where we have posted some pics.

If you do come then drive carefully

After a long wait the snow finally arrived up here. Please note that this is not an advert. Most of the local resorts have opened and the roads locally are abysmal. The ski queues are enormous and it has just taken Mike and Jordan an hour and a half to get to the top of the mountain. Not fun. If you...
