Re: Refunds from BA

Yesterday I was all set to ring my credit card company when I found a forum debating the problem with BA refunds. Others had had the same experience that I'd had of being disconnected. Some other phone numbers were quoted and I tried one and ignored the refund option instead going for 'other'. I got...

Re: Refunds from BA

Thanks destroyer that's really helpful. I will get on to the card company tomorrow. I have been logging all my failed attempts to reach BA. Ironically we usually fly to Faro with Easyjet from Luton but for a number of reasons, I decided we'd fly with BA from Heathrow. I'm regretting that now! Months...

Refunds from BA

Our flight to Faro on 21 June has been cancelled and rather than rebook or take a voucher, I'd rather have a refund. When we do finally travel, I'd like to be able to chose who we fly with. To get a refund, it is necessary to ring BA and every time I try, the line goes dead! I expect to have to wait...

Re: a good local bank?

I've banked with Millennium in cvo since 2007 and have found them very helpful and friendly - nothing is too much trouble.

Re: Open restaurants?

I'm interested to read both posts - for many years we've to cvo between Christmas and NY for a week or 10 days but it was very quiet last year, with some of our ususual haunts being closed, so moved the trip to January this year. In the event we cancelled as I wasn't well and the weather wasn't fore...

Re: Carvoeiro in October

We often visit in mid October and have never had problems with restaurants being closed. Weather's usually pretty good. The music in the square comes to an end at the end of the main season - I think in September

Re: Villa insurance

Thanks for the recommendations....I sorted out the villa insurance last week and have gone with Schofields - they were just over £250 compared to my renewal quote from Intasure of just over £500 😀

Re: newsletter/webcam

It's a shame it's so quiet as this was always my 'go to' for information on cvo and in the early days, provided lots of answers to my questions .... having finally decided recently to set up a facebook account, you've just reminded me of one of the reasons apart from A Rampa's menu 😀

Villa insurance

I'm interested in recommendations for villa building and contents insurance as mine seems to have jumped up in price over the last few years, and unlike most other types of insurance, I've foolishly stick with the same company for 10 years. Time to change!

Re: Outdoor table and chairs wanted

There is a place on the N125 by the Porches roundabout which had a sale on when we were in the area a week ago. The charity store near the Fatacil is worth a look as a completely different alternative....they have all sorts of random outdoors furniture.

Re: Helders - Rocha Brava

They were very attentative and the food was great such that we went back later in the week ( and not to Bella Napoli despite it b...

Re: Borehole/Mains

Have only just seen this post as we've been away until yesterday. For about 10 years, I relied on borehole water and got through any number of pumps, had to have the borehole deepened etc. The lack of water was the one thing I dreaded every time we visited! Having been very surprised when mains wate...

Does anytone know what time the shop at the entrance to RB closes at this time of year? I want to pick up some milk when we arrive next week. Otherwise, what time the small shop by Bella Napoli closes? Thanks
