Hi, yes, it comes with my Bank account, but expires on your 70th birthday.

We also had had full insurance on any travel to EU Countries. the EHIC Card.

Brexit has ended this and the new system does not offer the same benefits.

We brag about our low taxes here, but in reality they cost many a fortune.

Booked a long weekend in Iceland next month to see the volcano and have a soak in the blue lagoon.

Re: Would you take a holiday abroad this year?

I'm tired of getting my money back from from cancelled flights and cruises, there are still some outstanding bookings to be either moved or cancelled. No way will I be booking anything for quite a while, that's if I live long enough to ever travel abroad again. Like Swim says, I'm over seventy now with heart disease, and the cost of insurance makes many destination too costly. Apart from that, our passports have expired and I don't see the point of renewing anytime soon.

Brilliant place Ron, we were there in 2019 and visited a few places, but were on a cruise and couldn't dilly dally, would have loved to stay longer.

Not just them, it's everybody and his dog.

I have never seen so many caravans on the road, the caravan parks are full and it seems to be many new and shiny vans.

Watching them attempting to reverse onto their site is an entertainment in itself

When the borders eventually reopen I suspect there will be a glut of fairly new caravans on the market but at the moment demand is outstripping supply.

My daughter's parents in law just changed their off road caravan for a smaller one, the one they bought was secondhand but only used once. Apparently the family bought it then went for a weekend trip, returned the caravan to the lot the following Monday having decided caravanning was not for them. The resulting price was still not a bargain but it was a quick sale.

Had a week there in February 2018, flew over the valley in a helicopter where the volcano is now
