Slows down the PC and is not the best

Slows down your PC because there are too many adverts and sponsored links. If you want a fast and securie search engine use AVG Secure Search. and down load Firefox and use that in place of iE explorer


Both AVG and Firefox are free and take less time to load than Google or iE explorer

Google

Too slow and too many adverts

Slows down your PC because there are too many adverts and sponsored links. If you want a fast and securie search engine use AVG Secure Search.

Alos try using Firefox rather than Internet Explorer. Again iE explore slows down your PC as it has too many sponsors and adverts etc.

Both AVG and Firefox are free and take less time to load than Google or iE explorer

Autoreisen

Good Value

Have hired cars from them in all the Canairy Islands and mainland spain for the past 8 years.
Price quoted is what you pay, always best to book on line well in advance as you get a much better deal.
The cars are clean and good and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Ryanair

Avoid this airline

Ripped us off with a so called excess baggage charge. The facts are this.
Flew out from Bristol with 2 holds bags both checked in at 12Kgs each. The limit is 15kg each.
Flew back from Lanzarote with the same bags and same contents in each bag. We were aware that Ryanir charge for any excess baggage so we made a point of not putting anything extra or different in our hold bags. According to Ryanair in Lanzarote our 2 holds bags now weighed in at 17Kgs each, thats 4Kgs over and 20 euro per kilo (kerching that will be 80 euros).
Sent to a desk to pay the extra, which is a bit of a treck from check in, they retained our boarding pass until we paid. We had spare capacity in our Cabin hand luggage but were refused the opportunity to take out the "so called" excess.
Paid the 80 euro because we wanted to get home.
Arrived at Bristol airport, took my bags directly to the Ryaniar desk to get them weighed and guess what, they we both only 12Kgs each......
Ryanairs response..." Its the calibration of the scales from the country you fly from that determins the weight"
No apology, and no refund.
They certainly are not No1 airline, preferred airline or voted customers choice airline. They are not cheap, unless you fly with no luggage and you dont purchase anything on their flight.
The aircraft seating is cramped, seats dont recline and they wil never be used by me again. Infact I have worked out that Thomsons are cheaper to use then them when you add up the entire cost and Thomsons permit 20kgs per hold bag and not the 15Kgs limit of Ryanair.

Thomson

My preferred airline company

love their Tui aircraft. staff are friendly and there is plenty of leg room for me ( 6' 2"). They are value for money, infact 90% of the time when you fully cost them out they have always been cheaper than the crooks at Ryanair.
Just hope they keep the extra leg room their tui / tomfly aircraft have and they upgrade their firstchoice lines to the same standard.

Travel Republic

Value for Money and a friendly company

We have used Travel Republic now for the past 8 years for our holidays. The web site is good (They have even put on a facility they removed after I raised my issue with them) You know who your flying with, so you can avoide flying anywhere cattleclass (RYANAIR).
I have never been disapointed with any of the locations or accomdation and everyting runs smoothly with them.

I would highly reccomend Travel republic if you have not tried them. I have reccomended them to many friends and they have all said how goo they are and they all like their web site
