FREE Business cards at Vistaprint



Vistaprint have an excellent offer of 250 FREE business cards, you only pay the postage to France. A wide range of designs to choose from 42 being offered at the moment, but do change from time to time. If you wish to upgrade to a different design they are still very reasonably priced. They also offer the opportunity to upload your own design or logo.

Choose your favourite business card design to make your own family card.

These cards are ideal to give to new friends and acquaintances that you make. We have often been asked for our telephone number or e-mail address and to be able to offer one of these family cards is ideal. I used a suitable business card design to make our family cards.

For example:


INSURANCE 4 CAR HIRE

Don't get caught out with costly Car Hire Excess charges.

Insurance 4 car hire

Buy a policy to protect your excess, and the policy will cover you for not only if the car is damaged or stolen but also damage to the roof and undercarriage of the car AND windows and tyres.

I have heard good reports on this company that they pay out quickly with no hassle, so if you hire a lot of cars then the starting Annual European Excess Cover policy of £49.00 is worth taking out. PLUS Extra drivers that are named on the rental agreement are also covered for free.


UK CAR HIRE



Special Offers! Free Additional Driver on all UK Rentals

This is a really good UK car rental company,

Do you travel to the UK to visit family and friends and need to hire a car? Well this is a really good UK car hire company that offers a free extra driver which some car rental companies charge a fortune for.

You only pay a small deposit when you book and then pay the balance when you arrive in the UK, it offers cars via the well know hire companies like Avis, Europcar, Budget etc

Most Rental Cars include Unlimited mileage, insurance, collision damage waiver (CDW), theft protection (TPI), all taxes, license fees, road tax, 24 hour breakdown, and airport location fees, and a FREE extra driver. From Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, Luton Airport, Stansted Airport, Birmingham Airport, Glasgow Airport, Edinburgh Airport And Manchester Airport.




CURRENCY UK

Good transfer rates to bring currency to France from the UK. Why not set up an account, it is simple to do and then each transaction after that is very quick and easy.





SKYPE

What is Skype?
Skype is a little piece of software that lets you talk over the Internet to anyone, anywhere in the world for FREE.

I don't know how many of you are familiar with skype; it is a thing I could not live without in France. It enables me to keep in touch with all the family.

You can sign up to skype for FREE, and then you will be able to talk for FREE to other skype subscribers, whether they are friends or family members. You just need a computer with speakers and a microphone, or you can purchase a phone handset to use as you would a normal phone, and you are on the road to making Internet calls.

OK, but what about calling normal phones and mobiles?
If you make a lot of calls to the UK or abroad you can buy SkypeOut credit which enables you to make phone calls at a vastly reduced rate to normal landline and mobile telephones throughout the world. The credit can be bought for as little as £10, and the credit balance is debited every time you make a call. So no big bills are run up, you pay for it as you use it.

So, I can call friends and family back in my own country, how can friends and family call me cheaply?
Another great feature of skype is the facility to buy a SkypeIn number. This enables your friends and family to phone you at a cheaper rate, for example if you are in France and your family are in the UK you would purchase a London SkypeIn number, and then when a family member telephones you they will only be paying for the price of a London call.

Why not click the Skype logo and see what has to say.

ROQUEFORT CAVES

An exceptional combination of circumstances gave birth to Roquefort cheese : an extraordinary geological feature, men's tenacity and the special adaptability of a breed of ewes..

A visit not to be missed : down in the underground labyrinth of the maturing caves of Roquefort, formed by Nature after the landslide of the Combalou mountain. These high-vaulted caves, ventilated by the "fleurines" (natural draught passages which operate the natural ventilation of the caves) are where from January to June thousands of cheeses are nurtured in the hands of experts. You can visit the caves all year round.
