Re: Refunds from BA

I paid with my Virgin debit card for some flights. Virgin were happy to consider a chargeback.

Re: Refunds from BA

Hi. I imagine you will have paid for your flights with a card. If so, I would suggest you speak to your card company about a chargeback. You have paid for a service which has not been provided, and the relevant legislation says you should have received a cash refund within seven days of cancellation...

Carvoeiro on my mind

I should be in Carvoeiro at the moment, in the first week of a three week break. Instead, I'm sitting at home like millions around the world, anxious for those I love, for my country and, not wishing to sound like a drip, for the world. Uncharted territory for all of us. I'm more than ever conscious...

Re: Sen Tonkin

Yes, we always make a point of going when we're over. Very friendly family. We went last year with my two year old grandson and he was playing kitchens in the small play area with the two little girls of the family, and turned up at the table in miniature apron and chef's hat. Later, they seemed to ...

Re: Big Will

I’ve been here for two weeks, returning home tomorrow. Bumped into Will for the first time last night. Story seems to be that a British or Irish man, known to Will, caused some bother in Roundup. When Will took it up with him outside the bloke turned on him and knocked him down. I was told the chap ...

Re: Elle & Ela closed

The biter bit I'd say. We stopped using this place years ago when we regularly saw them give away reserved tables and shrug their shoulders when customers turned up who had booked them, cram people in, and show a disinclination to be polite if you weren't a special chum. Too much choice around to pu...

Re: Big Will

Sorry to bump this but does anyone have an update on the situation with Will? If this story is true it's a great shame, and there will be a lot of people from a lot of countries sending Will their best wishes.

Elite Rentals

Hello all. Does anyone here have any recent experience with this company please? Looking to book with them and, aside from some quite old posts on this forum, I'm unable to find any information. No reason whatsoever to believe they are anything but completely on the top line but any assistance would...

Re: Processional caterpillars

We happened to mention to some friends last week that we'd booked lunch at Ponto de Encontro for Sunday and they said, didn't we know Paolo had been in intensive care - after falling victim to these things? Apparently a nest fell from a neighbour's pine tree on to his terrace. Pleased to say he was ...

Re: Flea markets

The Ferragudo car boot usually takes place second Sunday of each month. Quite a big affair with all sorts of stuff on sale - books, clothing, furniture and general bric a brac.
If you Google, "Algarve car boots", you will also find listings for the various flea market type events in the area.
