Re: Meia Preia

Just as a matter of interest, what would your view be if a man had posted with similar views on the way women should be treated? Serious question really, not looking for an argument.

Re: (No) Smoking at the Black Stove?

I'm with Rob on this one. I'm not a smoker and don't like being around smoke. However, the smoking or no smoking line would seem to give everyone a clear choice, and to be fair. I'm not convinced even the best extraction units solve things so you have the potential for non smokers to start wittering...

Re: Hire car insurance

For info, have received the following response from ECH: "Thank you for your email. Drive for Fun do not offer any additional insurance. We offer top-up insurance to cover damage to the glass parts, tyres and underside of the vehicle which can be purchased when booking online for an additional £1 pe...

Re: Hire car insurance

Point taken. However, the following is taken from the ECH website so please don't assume full cover is in force: "Our insurance includes Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) with no insurance excess liability and Theft Loss Waiver (TLW) with no liability in the event that the vehicle is stolen. Also covere...

Re: Hire car insurance

Apologies, I should have said I am booking through ECH. However, although I've used them for some years, this is first time with D4F. Last year used ECH (can't recall which hire co.) and was offered "top up" cover at the desk. Think it was 4 Euros a day to waive excess and to include tyres, glass, i...

Hire car insurance

I bought a policy last year to cover excesses applying to insurances which are part of a hire car deal. However, as I won't be travelling abroad so much this year I'm thinking it may not be the best way of dealing with this. As a matter of interest, does anybody know what Drive 4 Fun charge on a dai...

Re: SEVIS/International Car/Aluguer de Viaturas Lda

Thank you Lesley Jean. And thank you, Michael. Over in June and booked with ECH - you have put my mind at rest as I had been a bit concerned about this situation.

Re: A couple of nights

Ah! Sorry Mat Mat. I bumped this topic because I thought it might assist in the query you just posted. Then I noticed you started this topic anyway! Middle age and the shedding of brain cells are a terrible thing :oops:

Just in case it might prove useful to anyone, or they fancy buying the French bloke and his wife a drink, the business card for the motel I mentioned has surfaced in a post Christmas clear out.
It was the Motel Parque Algarvio and the phone numbers I have are 282 342 265 and 282 352 296.

Thank you Von Von. You give me too much credit. I've been coming to XC for years and I've missed it so far.

Re: bargain bucket

Forgive my ignorance but what, and where, is the Fatacil?
Just to say as well that I think this topic was an excellent idea. We're over in June and, like a lot of UK vistors I guess, are taking a slightly different approach to our spending.
Cheers.

Re: Phoning taxis.

Someone may have a better idea (or indeed a number) but we got a card from one of the drivers at the rank in town when we were staying in Pedra Grande and my mate had dicey ankles. Very reliable and reasonable and all of the operators spoke English. This does of course mean a trip into town in the f...
