Rip off Britain ….. Again !!

As we can now (in our dotage smile! ) do more “Out of season” European Camping , thought I would check out the difference between “ACSI” & “Camping Cheque” Pitch fees.

ACSI ……. 12, 14 or 16 Euros per night ……. Paid at the Campsite (at the best exchange rate I can get !!)

Camping Cheque …….. 15 Euros per night, paid up front ……. At GET THIS £13-95 …… Yes that’s 1.075 Euros to the £1-00

Very tough choice ??? ….. I don’t think so

Brian

PS …. Incidentally, if I buy / get them from France its 15 Euros …… But they can get sensored1 now ….. Don’t mess with us OAP’s hugegrins hugegrins

Just remember they are ALL out to rob you!!

Here is a run-down of my 95 years old Mum's finances when I took over five years ago:

o Bank. They had dropped the interest rate on her "Savings Account" from 3% to 0.01%!

o Electric/Gas/Water. They held £1,200 of her money - but we're still putting up the Direct Debits!

o Water. Charging her £15 per quarter to insure the 15m of pipe between the road and her house.

o Insurance. Charging her £512 to insure her house. (Internet same company £195!)

Be warned!

1. There is no such thing as Customer Loyalty.

2. ALWAYS challenge ANY increase in a Direct Debit.

3. Trust NO-ONE!

Rant over. Grrrrrrr!!

No,it's not E15 a night, it's 14.996225. Sounds like a positive bargain to me! In the context of the LIBOR rate dust-up that's really quite a crude relationship. They were working to nine figures of decimals - minimum.

eggnog. Sir! Get back in the bunker laddy!
