  1. Rodders added a post in a topic Dog to France   

    As irritating as it is ,looks like ,by the time things are sorted ,it will be too late to get a dog ,and be ready in time to be able to take it with us on holiday , and kennels for a newly acquired dog is out of the question.
    Hmmmm

    Dog to France
    We are in the process of getting back into dog ownership . and one of the things to address is pet passport as we HOPE to be off to France in July
    I am struggling to understand the requirements for taking a dog to France, and the time scale for outward and return processes Firstly if things remain as they are , then if there is a “No Deal” exit .
    , And then should   we  even plan to get a dog before July
     
    In simple terms once having got a passport ( our vet will charge around £150)what is next , and on return do we have to visit a French vet .
    If no deal I guess that it will back to the dark ages with long periods of quarantine

    Having read negative reports about the blow up version , we opted for the conventional type with poles and can’t fault it

    "May " need international driving licence in Europe
    From BBC News web site
     
    The government is encouraging all British driving licence holders who live in the EU to exchange their licence for a local EU driving licence as soon as possible, in case there is a "no deal" Brexit.
    It is also warning people who live in the UK that if they want to drive in Europe after March, they may need an international driving permit (IDP) in some countries.
    In the guidance, which was updated today, the government warned UK drivers: "From 29 March 2019, in the event that there is no EU Exit deal, you may need an IDP in addition to your UK driving licence to drive in EU and EEA countries."
    It also said that UK driving licence holders living in the EU from 29 March "may have to pass a driving test in the EU country you live in to be able to carry on driving there."
    "You should consider exchanging your UK driving licence for an EU driving licence as soon as possible."
    Increased demand may lead to longer processing times and delays to exchanging driving licences the closer it is to 29 March 2019," the guidance adds.

  12. Rodders added a post in a topic French fuel price (diesel) 11 July   

    Did shopping in Calais Saturday and fuel is at or about €1.43.5  , but with poor exchange rate , same price as Tesco near us
    So for the first time , we did not fill up over there ,
    Wine still cheaper , even with poor rate and salt for softener around £2 cheaper , so took the van and filled up with salt and wine
    The A16 was apparently blocked with a demonstration , so back to the port via the back roads unhindered
