  4. Seems a bit surreal have just been denied a breakdown because the car was within 1/4 mile of my home despite being 0.4 miles by road. If I want to claim I have to pay £60 now + add £6 a month to my policy. Ive had a look at the policy and it states within 1/4 mile. Nothing about it being measured in pigeon miles. I'd go as far as to say the whole things crazy. I guess what i'm wondering is do I have any grounds for complaint?, luckily my dad has been able to recover on his but its still a major inconvenience and I just cant get the logic other than them deliber
  5. I have been invited to a wedding in Poland next year. I have booked around 9 months in advance, flight out 31/08/18 and return 03/09/18. Other guests a few weeks later had trouble finding the flight on Wizz Air's website and asked if they were given the correct details. After calling Wizz Air, they assumed the call was in relation to a different flight to Hungary, but after a little more clarification advised me that the flight out is now a day earlier on 30/08/18 and the return is now a day later on 04/09/18. Whilst I have no doubt that somewhere in the small print t
  6. Hi all So my dad is due to fly to Sweden next month, as his brother is in his final months of live, due to cancer. He booked a flight via Norwegian air for a return trip from Gatwick to Copenhagen for £106.90 on Monday the 17th. He got the confirmation email, so everything looked normal, until Wednesday, he got a series of flight confirmation emails, which listed changes to his flight. The first email was a series of cancellation/time changes, but also included: 2 x Checked baggage (10.00 GBP) 0.00 (0%) 20.00 2 x Upgrade fee (36.00 GBP) 0.00 (0%) 72.00 2 x Namechan

  8. With warmer weather coming along, I thought I'd remind people of a method that works well and doesn't cost much. If you have a fan that can be used on a table or on the floor, you just need a plastic water bottle, maybe more than one, of about 1 litre capacity. Freeze the bottle of water and when you need to cool down, put one in front of the fan so the air blows towards you and is cooled by the frozen bottle. Make sure you put the bottle in something that will catch the condensation or you'll end up with a pool of water underneath. It works and it's cheap. HB

  11. Hello, I bought a hot air hair styler from Argos a few days ago. When I tried to use it, it was awkward to use and didn't curl my hair as it was supposed to to ( it said that the large roller could be used to produce curls at the ends of the locks of hair, but it didn't curl my hair). Also the attachments were difficult to change( you are supposed to push the attachment in, then twist it to secure it, but this was very difficult) .All in all, I was disappointed with the styler, as it didn't do what I thought it would do(i.e. curl the ends of my hair). In fact, none
  12. Last Thursday we had a Dometic Freshjet 2200 air conditioner fitted into our caravan. This unit comes with heating, dimmer function and a remote control. The unit cools down okay, but on checking the heating function (1200w) there is a strong burning smell, a rattling noise and no heat. We have tried the heat function several times in the past week and it will not function. In addition, the unit has a light which can be dimmed using the remote control. This function does not work either. We managed to contact the supplier who in turn said that they would contact the manufacturer Wh
  13. Took my car in to a local garage for its service and MOT. I also asked for an air con service at the time of booking. When picking up my car I was told that they couldn't complete the air con service as there was a leak when they put the oxygen through, when I asked what had happened and why they hadn't fixed it, I was fobbed off. On driving home, the air con wasn't working at all, just blowing hot air, it was working fine before. I took it to an F1 Autocentre who diagnosed instantly that there was no leak, just no pressure in the system- most likely due to a botched job. Where
  14. I had my air con refilled by them for £50. It's not particularly cold, but I understand it can be due to the car. Are they suppose to replace the pollen filter? I assumed it was a part of the service, but they didn't replace it and it smells like old sweat when it's running.

  16. Hi, I am trying to find the legal name for Air France in the UK and their service address for a claim form. Anybody have any clue? Thanks!
  17. Hi guys, need some advice. I'm a london bus driver. All our buses have air con for the driver, however, the buses on my route only about 3 out of 15 have working air con. Most, when you switch the air con on blow out HOT air. The buses have been reported countless times for non working air con. Today, both buses I drove had non working air con, and, tbh, if my shift was any longer, I would not of been able to carry on driving. My arms felt like lead, I felt very tired and larthargic, and was losing my concentration. If This happens again, I will stop driving and re
  18. Japanese car recall: how are UK consumers affected? Toyota, Honda and Nissan are recalling 3.4m vehicles worldwide after discovering a fault with front passenger seat airbags Japanese carmakers are recalling 3.4m cars worldwide after discovering a fault with some airbags. Here is a guide to how UK consumers are affected. What is the problem with the cars? The affected models have all been supplied with front passenger seat airbags by the same Japanese component supplier, Takata. Some of these airbags have been found to have safety defects. There is too much pressure in
  19. If you have air source heating, what er your experiences using it regarding heating itself, cost of consumption, icing up etc. We had storage heating and this is our first winter with air source heating. Our electric bill has almost doubled in comparison to last year. We also find that the machine ices up on cold days and is not very effective when you really need it. On moderate days it is fine and works okay. We have had to resort to buying a gas heater and only use the central heating in off peak due to the high costs. Your views will be appreciated. Thanks.
  20. Previously we had storage heaters, but we had issues keeping the lounge and another front room warm and the lounge was always cold. We complained on numerous occasions that we seem to be losing heat in the lounge and the small front room. In March 2012 they replaced the storage heaters with air source heating and now our electric bill has jumped up from about £82 in winter months to £135! The figures are based on true readings. The lounge and small room still lose heat and the air source heating machine keeps switching on to maintain the temperature hence the high electric bills. The
  21. Wizz air introduces new cabin bag charges. If anyone is confused about why some airline companies have reduced card surcharges following the OFT investigation,then even more confusing is how some are seemingly already taking measures to recoup any shortfalls by introducing new baggage charges. Now traditionally the major airlines have included hand baggage within the base ticket. Up until 9th July Wizz Air did so too...and 10kg at that. Today they announced their so called "New Cabin bag policy" So for those who are wondering,Wizz are now defining between a small c

  23. Air travellers face excessive fees for using credit cards to book flights for at least six more months, despite a clampdown by the Office of Fair Trading. Last week, the watchdog announced changes that would force airlines to include the cost of paying by debit card in their headline fares. Airlines are changing the way they advertise and restructuring their websites to comply with the new rules. Clive Maxwell, head of the OFT, says: ‘This is a great outcome for millions who buy flights online. It is important the cost presented when they search for a flight is realistic and that t
  24. We know they will recover these costs elsewhere,but they are in no doubt that the OFT was serious about taking action against those who continued to levy these fees,which were viewed as a penalty. The European ruling for enforcement is still some time away (2014) but todays announcement involves some of the big carriers. http://www.oft.gov.uk/news-and-updates/press/2012/58-12
