General discussion / Flight cancellation, refund, compensation etc
« on: March 18, 2020, 12:24:23 PM »
Any help on this one would be greatly appreciated
 
We were due to fly from Krakow to Belfast on Sunday with Ryanair (two separate bookings), but they cancelled all flights until end of the month from Sunday onwards and communicated this to us on Saturday evening.
 
Panic booked an Easyjet flight to Manchester on the Saturday evening but mistakenly booked it for the following week. In any case, easyjet informed me later that evening that flight was also cancelled anyway as Poland was closing its borders.
 
Anyway, her brother managed to book us Easyjet flights from Krakow to Geneva, Geneva to Gatwick and Gatwick to Belfast on the Sunday, and all of these flights went ahead and we got home eventually.
 
I think the total cost of booking the flights back home came to approx. 1200. Will Ryanair refund/compensate the price of paying for these flights to get home with a separate airline? If not, will Easyjet refund/compensate me the cost of the new flights to get home as they had cancelled the flight that I had mistakenly bought for next week?

I have no holiday insurance, although Ms bogball does
 
Many thanks in advance

« on: November 06, 2017, 02:19:54 PM »
Lads and ladies,
I have 1 nights accommodation going for the Clifton Court Hotel on the Quays in Dublin for 63 or 70 quid on the night of Ireland v Denmark Tuesday 14th November, which I am no longer able to use and unfortunately I didn't chose the free cancellation option. Double room, if any one wants it drop me a PM. Hotel have said all that is required is to change the name of person staying online.

General discussion / Free Movie Download

Has anyone got any good recommendations for sites or apps for downloading films for free on to an iPad without any lengthy signing up process or having to subscribe?

Have just noticed that Sky Sports have reached a deal to broadcast the 3pm Kicks offs in the Premier League to Irish customers only-there is still a blackout for UK customers so as to not affect attendances  ::)

Think Setanta Sports previously had these rights.

Just wondering what way will this be done i.e. will there be a separate Sky Sports Ireland channel available to Irish customers only? Thought I read somewhere that these may be broadcast on Sky Sports 5 exclusive to Irish customers, if this is the case will it just be a blackout for UK customers?

GAA Discussion / Selling tickets in Belfast
« on: June 10, 2014, 10:10:56 AM »
Have a pile of tickets to sell for our club draw up in the Belfast area, 10 each or 20 for 3, top prize is 3000! Where would be the best areas/streets to target in the South Belfast direction or what would my best plan of action be? The sort of areas where there is plenty of money, and willing to give to a GAA club?

GAA Discussion / Football gloves

Not sure if this has been covered before, just trying to gauge opinion as to the best football gloves to buy. Alot of brands out on the market now, but many of them seem to wear very quickly after drying out. All comments welcome

General discussion / Car insurance No Claims Bonus
« on: March 22, 2013, 03:27:15 PM »
Quick query, during my previous employment I was given a company vehicle for the purposes of my work and was insured under my employers insurance. I worked for over a year. Can I still claim 1 year's No Claims Bonus if I was insured in this way?

General discussion / Dublin for St Patricks weekend
« on: March 13, 2013, 11:11:52 AM »
Well folks it's that time of year again, and Dublin sounded the perfect option for us with Tyrone and the Dubs playing on the Saturday night. Heading down nice and early on the Saturday, going to catch the rugby somewhere, throw down a few pints before the match, probably end up in Coppers that night!

Then straight back on her the next day. Anyone any good suggestions of watering holes we could visit in between on both days, somewhere where there is music and the craic is 90?
