Re: Deals on Gatwick Car Rental

Go through the .co.uk site instead of the .ca/.com and the insurance will be included in the price. Always boook my car that way when I go back with no issues and I usually use Enterprise.

Re: BBC Listener

I have an app called Tune in Radio on my ipad and i phone.

You can listen to radio all around the world. The one downside is no footie commentary, as the BBC block it.

When I got my first pack, with no insurance, it cost me $28. That was back in 2007 though. Now I am lucky to have insurance through work, but they only cover 3 months at any one time......
