      Forum Upgrade March 2017 - Hints, Tips and Complaints   19/03/17

      The forum is now up again and running after the upgrade - there is still the task of searching for updated versions of apps and plugins from the old version and then download, upgrade and configure    Please note any issues outside of this to this thread here where the Site Admins can then work out what needs to be reinstated when possible.         Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. The link is for the Aussie Card but checked both UK & Aussie Foreign currency fee at ATM's is 5.95% worse than the cards I have now & I only take as emergency cards. Ah well a great loss RIP Supercard. Loading up with euros revolut was offering 1.15 travelex 1.12 so not for me will just have to use my Nationwide Select credit Card.
  2. That is very disappointing linked it to my nationwide card so I used to get 0.5% back. Nationwide has no foreign fees but its security is over the top went to Tenerife told them online I was going. When I arrived at the hotel they blocked the card but as a regular customer it was OK next day rang them took about 20 mins to unblock went down 10 mins later they blocked the card again this time I got a text so 3 rd time lucky. With Supercard all I had to do was change to another linked card. As you not been informed but here it is.
  3. Stayed in the Nana Hotel for a few days in March Cheap, great location & nice pool. Very dated but clean.
  4. If your phone is unlocked the answer is yes very easy, done it twice about 5 mins.
  5. If you are a UK passport holder 30 day visa is free on arrival.
  6. Areca Lodge has 2 pools I think this one is the best and just across the road from LK metro.
  7. A guy at work many years ago went to a financial advisor got him to move his Pension came and told us we should do we said it was wrong. Luckily he managed to sue a few year's latter and get some back but he was very quiet about it so he lost a good amount. Pension freedoms in the UK great but please be careful.
  8. Interest rates are shite I invest in peer to peer lending so after fees and loses returning over 7% I invest in 4 different ones the main one I am lending to 295 businesses most are Property loans with a first charge on the property. Also if you have not got one get a pension plan sorted. Use whatever tax breaks as well.
  9. Not Thailand but this year needed about 100 euros in Tenerife went to a cash point they offered to convert it for me worked out at about 1.05 to the £ said NO my bank did it at about 1.15 it was nearly 10% they were going to screw me for so as stated don't do it. Take the local currency and let your own bank screw you it will be a lot less.
  10. Just seen it in Today's news, how many retired people are going to live 20 years I retired early and hope to make it but who knows
  11. Thai Official is advising this for Retired Brits.
  12. And the same this morning, breakfast is from 0630-0930 in the Areca Building 0630-1030 Evergreen Building you can use either one, Evergreen is air conditioned.
  13. I believe it is possible if you are not in the Evergreen wing certainly in the Corona wing which is the centre of the 3 buildings. But why it is for your safety. Nice hotel good location IMO but raining as I type !
  14. Might be an idea to email Areca directly deluxe are 1548 baht over that period with the ACE club. When you put in dates it maybe only 1 or 2 nights of that room are in your whole period fully booked and they might be able to work round it.
  15. Some flag states require you to have certificates issued by them I worked both Bermuda & Bahamas registered and used to need certificates issued by both although in recent year's one would just accept my UK one. I think you would need an STCW recognised qualification to work on a yacht they brought in newer regulations a few years ago.
