I have a friend who is in Cornwall at the moment, he's not having any problems, other than the usual Cornish hostility towards grockles :tup:

I lived in Southport near Bournemouth when I was about 21 and there was no issue with Grockles - we went to the pub, bar staff knew us, got us our drinks and we paid when they were less busy. Did upset the grockles a bit. But no hostility on our part ;)

He should have (perhaps he did?) arranged at least one room to be a camera obscura  :)

There is a now slightly out of fashion trend here  for couples to place a padlock on a bridge to symbolise their affection and loyalty. This is one of dozens attached to a pedestrian bridge in Agen.

Another holiday bites the dust!  :'(  My last hope of getting abroad this year was to be a week in Madeira in September. The flights are going , the hotel is open but the company I paid my deposit to has gone bust! Friends we are going with had paid in full but we`d paid 2/3rds after a messaging experience on their facebook page left me with concerns and they gave me wriggle room. No problem anyway money wise as it is ATOL protected so just waiting for the claim form to materialise but so annoying. never mind - already booked an alternative week in Cornwall with the same friends - what could possibly go wrong?

What a pain!
Sorry to hear this but good news that you can get tie money back.
We are going to Cornwall tomorrow. Looking forward to the break but it is with some trepidation.

Have a great time. Be interested to hear how it goes. Stories about locals with signs saying "Go home" on road bridges a week or so back. Guessing it's calmed now.

The claim on the credit card rules may be different in France, but in the UK you can claim against the Credit card company directly without going to the company. It's in the consumer credit act. No if's or but's. That's the whole point of paying by credit card.  :tup:

Sorry Oldboy, no you can't. It is what is iin the CCA. The card company is liable only if a refund is not forthcoming from the contracted supplier and the amount exceeds £100. I was a manager with a card company, I know the CCA inside out. There may be card companies that will pay despite it not being their legal obligation on the grounds of administrative costs exceeding reimbursement costs, but they have no legal obligation to do so. Also, if a supplier is in administration/liquidation there is no need to approach them first as the insolvency is a matter of public record.

In France you can't claim against the card company at all. Customer service is an alien concept.

Have a great time and fully relax. Should be fairly quite on the roads as most people are staying local.  :tup:

This is my rushed entry. Off on holiday to Cornwall early tomorrow and realised that I didn't have a entry, so grabbed this whilst on the school run.
