  1. That is the technique my father taught me: "look ahead, and keep it rolling slowly".
  2. It's only other people who get stopped.
  3. Nah, that's fake news. It's the USA: just ask the Donald.
  4. That happened to my mate's son in law. He came off his motor bike in Spain, was very badly injured, hospitalised, and ran up huge bills, but no insurance. Do not believe that EHIC covers everything: it does not. The family stuck him in the back of an old 244 Volvo estate, and brought him back to the UK.
  5. From your profile, you live in Hertfordshire. Are there any CT who would recommend any dealers near to there ?
  6. Or use a 50p piece. I have plenty for sale on fleabay for £5 each.
  7. Until something goes seriously wrong, and then it is money well spent. Repatriation costs would cripple most folk.
  8. It largely depends on personal circumstances. We weighed up the alternatives, and for us it was cost beneficial to have the Flexplus.
  9. Thanks for the explanation. Point noted.
  10. Who is the fiver paid to, and where does the phone call go to please ?
  11. Apart from sorting out the pet passport: no, but if travelling by ferry it is advisable to book well in advance, as the "doggy" cabins get booked very quickly.
  12. Where a clipping point is not provided, I thought it was legal to wrap it around the tow ball, but it must be a carabiner type, As here : https://www.caravanclub.co.uk/advice-and-training/technical-advice/breakaway-cables/ or here:
  13. As John says, it's just pot look where you end up on the ferry. Nothing you can do about it.
  14. Still have the 2006 VW Sharan auto diesel, so no stop/start. Euro 4 according to this https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/emissions/euro-emissions-standards/
  15. Thanks folks. I'll check that next time we are out. If the voltage is OK, can anyone offer any alternative suggestions please ?
