    I have just got back from a trip to Spain and while on the way back home, I was gobsmacked when my CAXTON card was refused on 3 occasions. I put it down to a faulty card, as I "knew" there was over €250 credit still on the card. On getting back, I checked my account to find two debited sums...
  4. Bennetts Classic Motor Bike Insurance tried to rip me off!

    Insurance
    This is how Bennetts Classic Motor Bike Insurance tried to rip me off. Last year I bought Comprehensive Motorbike Insurance for my classic 1981 Kawasaki GPZ1100 from Bennetts Bike Insurance for £101.07 Pounds Sterling. I thought that was reasonable for a motor bike that I didn’t even ride...

    Chatter
    Came across this today, seems as thought this plucky young lady has one hell of an adventure ahead of her. I think it's a very brave thing to do on your own, regardless of gender, and certainly takes a strong character to tackle such a challenge for charity. Steph sets off from the Ace Cafe on...
