Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

Unfortunately it didn't work too well Mike! Normally July & August it's still full of groups of 18-30ish partying Brits, getting drunk, fighting etc. The only thing that has changed, is that they can no longer go there on an organised 18-30 holiday. I visit a friend of mine who has a small hotel...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

As British people arriving here now, are travelling against the UK Government advice, I assume most won't have any travel/medical insurance cover. A lot will have their EHIC cards with them, for medical cover. I think it would be a good idea, if the UK government, stated that they would not cover th...

Re: Any rebates available?

Jackdaw, Reading your post made my blood boil! Yes, there are some schemes for deferring bills etc, for those people LIVING in Greece, who can't pay their bills, because they're not working.

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

chrissyg, because you would be flying via an allowed country, it is only random testing.
