  1. I have recently returned from Cuba, it was a fantastic holiday that was only spoilt by a loss of 2 days. When we booked it we was due to fly to Havana, Spend a couple of nights there, then fly on to Cayo coco, using an internal flight. Spend 14 nights then fly back to Havana for an overnight stay then Havana to Gatwick.. The internal flight time was 45 mins. 3 days before our holiday we were contacted by our holiday company stating that because of a recent airplane crash at Havana they would not be using any internal flights.? Which is fine, safety first etc.! Th
  2. Hi all and thanks for the help in advance. I returned back to the UK 3 or 4 months ago after travelling. I was on a working holiday in Australia for 1 and a half years, then travelling Asia (not working at all) for another year. After returning my Dad fell ill and is disabled. Therefore he began claiming PiP etc. He needs help and I have been caring for him. I made a new claim for carers allowance over 8 weeks ago. (still waiting for an answer) I have just attempted to make a claim for universal credit and after answering a question about being in the country for the
  3. If you are travelling over the Easter Holiday especially if you are thinking of using the Tube. You should ensure that the lines you want to travel on will be open. Doesn't actually say why they are going to be closing.
  4. Hello, I am unable to purchase a ticket at the railway station as the ticket machines are card only and the ticket office is permanently closed. I approached the guard before boarding the train and asked him if I could buy a ticket. He said yes and told me to board. When he came through the train, he told me that the battery on his machine had died, so I would have to buy one when I changed at the next station. When I went to buy a ticket, I was confronted by a member of staff who told me that I would have to pay a penalty fare for travelling without a ticket. I explai
  5. Hi Only bought my car last week and am travelling to Jersey on Wednesday. Just a bit worried about not having the V5, which I won't receive in time. Anyone ever been asked to produce the document? Would the purchase receipt for the car suffice? Also, do I need GB sticker? Thanks
  6. Hi, I university student and I travel from slade green in kent to london and I have a 16-25 student oyster card. I used to get a zone 1-6 weekly travelcard on my oyster but started to get zone 1-2 weekly travelcard thinking i would be ok with it. Got caught today by an inspector at slade green station and was cautioned and was asked severall questions. I told them my friend said I could use a zone 1-2 travel card and said I didnt know that it was a zone 6 station. They asked for my friends name and address but i only gave his name. I know its totally my fault dont know what to do. What
  7. Got a NIP for 37 in a 30mph zone. asking for a photo and camera calibration certificate. I've also stated in the letter that it's likely I will be travelling abroad for quite a while (up to 6 months), and don't know exactly where I'll be staying. I've provided them with the address of the first hotel I'll be staying in, and that they must write to that address or i won't see any correspondence.The hotel will forward any letters once I've stopped staying there. I'm concerned they'll ignore what I've told them, and they'll end up writing to my uk address, and I won't see the letters.
  8. Hi I'm looking for some advice. I bought a single ticket to Cheltenham at a ticket machine prior to boarding a train at Cardiff. I used the ticket to go through the turnstiles and then boarded the train. When asked for my ticket by the conductor I was unable to produce it. I can only imagine that it dropped from my pocket between the turnstiles and the train. The conductor was sympathetic and said that I just needed to fill out a form and the matter would be resolved if I was able to produce evidence of buying the ticket. Shortly after I received a letter from Transport Investigation
  9. Hi I recently had a dispute regarding a outstanding balance which had been accrued whilst travelling abroad in Hong Kong. I had questioned the usage (£3000) as I had no idea where the usage had occurred as Im only a casual web browser and received limited email during my trip. I am a Engineering Manager for a Marine company and constantly travel and use data and had never had any troubles with large charges but obviously not to the extent of the disputed debt. I contacted the Ombudsman and the case was referred with the outcome favouring Vodafone. Obviously not happy but believing that i
  10. Hi All, The SLC have been sending letters to my parents house. They have stated that they are aware I have no record of income through the tax system (HMRC?) and that they wish for me to confirm my address with them and say I may be liable to a charge if I do not reply. I took out a student loan around in 2000 after graduating I never earned enough to pay back the loan and I am quite sure the SLC lost track of me after moving addresses several times. I then took out another loan in 2010 after graduating I was unable to gain employment and a fter sittin
  11. I have 2 dogs - JR - 2.5 years old - absolutely adores travelling in the car. Has a proper canine seat belt and will sit for hours just looking out the car window. . GR - nearly 8. For the first 2 or 3 years, she was ok in the car. For some strange reason she suddenly threw a wobbly and even on short journeys now, it is like having the MiL in the back of the car - she does nothing but moan and whine. She too has always had a proper canine seat belt so it isn't that. Could it really be something as simple as having changed the car around that time and she doesn't like the new
  12. A plane is on its way to Toronto, when a Blonde from Economy class makes her way to the First class section and sits down. The Flight Attendant asks to see her ticket, and tells her that as she has only paid for Economy, that is where she must sit. The Blonde responds... I am Blonde, I am beautiful, I am going to Toronto and I am staying right here. The Flight Attendant speaks with the Pilot and Co Pilota bout this and asks what should be done. The Co Pilot goes back to First Class and speaks with the Blonde,advising that her ticket is an Economy one and that is where she must s

  14. Hi everyone. On reaching the train station today I found myself stuck in a queue. I was running late and had to be at an appointment and so when the train arrived 30 seconds after joining the queue, I decided I would buy a ticket from the conductor. (as I and many others have done previously). Unfortunately, there was no conductor on the train and so on alighting the train, I queued again to buy a ticket at the pay stand which has been present for as long as I can remember. I was refused a ticket and instead was ushered to a waiting revenues officer. I explained the situation regarding
