Caravans are the same as trailers ie require registration, mot, insurance etc. Also remember a UK caravan will have the door on the wrong side. Now the UK is outside the EU there will probably be...

Re: Moving to Hungary

Cutting through all the chat on snow tyres etc bear in mind that there is a possibility of Britain coming out of the EU with no deal. Therefore all your rights you now enjoy could well be lost. One...

Re: TV & Internet

Forget tv via a dish unless you subscribe to Sky but you will still not get all BBC, ITV, Ch4 etc. as these are on a tight beam for UK only.

Best bet is Kodi via internet and use FilmOn.

Re: Same product, different food quality?

Feel the same about milk. I believe that baked beans for example actually have a shelf life of 7 years but are only marked up for about 2.

Interesting or not fact. In Lidl the small German...

Re: English TV in Hungary

Here we go again. You all want UK tv but are going to all sorts of silly lengths to avoid paying for it. Film On gives you what you want with no problems. If you have a Kodi box you can route it...

Re: Car insurance

If you want to register the Elgrand on Hungarian plates you will need LHD headlights (beam benders are NOT acceptable). So check with the manufacturer that the model was made Lhd so are headlights...

Re: Using a U.K. Registered car in Hungary

Re: What Are The Possible Outcomes For Ex-pats in Spain if UK leaves the EU

Re: 2nd hand cars

I assume the P plate is for temporary use and cannot stay on a vehicle indefinitely. This seems to be a non starter. One other way is to buy a new lhd in the UK which we did. This gave us 3 years...

Re: What Are The Possible Outcomes For Ex-pats in Spain if UK leaves the EU
