Vodafone

Excellent coverage

I have been a Vodafone customer on and off for many years. I have found the network coverage to be one of, if not THE best available. The Vodafone Sure Signal box is really excellent when like me our house is a bit like a lead lined box, blocking almost all phone signals. When it comes to renewing your contract however, it is always wise to tell them you are leaving as you have found a better deal for the new phone you want, as they will always call you back with a better offer to get you to stay with them.

TripAdvisor

Always worth checking here first

I have used this service for several years now. It is always worth checking here bofre booking, as the people who actually stay in the hotel/resort are the best people to tell you how it really is. there are always the odd one or two who just moan about anything, so it is worth reading a lot of reviews to get the true general feeling, but if you travel without checking here first, its like going on a blind date.

TalkTalk

Good service, good value

having been a customer of TalkTalk for some time, I have seen the service improve over the past few years. I think it is now as good as any available (although we are not in a cable area, so I cannot compare with that type of service). The broadband speed is very good, we have game consoles, several computers, smart phones etc all connecting at the same time via WiFi, and have not noticed any real speed reduction. The telephone service is just what you would expect, no complaints there either. Price is comparable to most other providers, and I have not found anyone offering enough of a difference to temp me into a move.

Ebay

Massive choice, excellent value

If you cannot find what you are looking for on Ebay, the chances are its not available anywhere! The choice of items is unbelievable, and the value fo money is generally excellent. It is always worth just checking elsewhere, as on occasion I have seen things cheaper locally, and always ask if the item is genuine or a copy, especially if buying from another country. Use PayPal to pay for your purchase, as you get excellent protection in case the item is faulty or does not turn up. I use Ebay all the time, and providing you are sensible, it is by far the best way to purchase, well, almost anything.

Paypal

Excellent for purchases, expensive for selling.

The security you get when purchasing items online and paying by PayPal is second to none, and I will always use this payment method when possible. When receiving payment however, the charges are really quite expensive, hence only 4 stars not 5.

Ryanair

Priority Boarding ?

We have recently travelled with Ryan Air (not our choice-booked a holiday through Travel Republic). We decided to pay extra for Priority Boarding, as having travelled with Ryan Air previously, we found there was no room in the above seat lockers for our small bag due the number of suitcases carried on board because of the ridiculous price charged for Hold luggage. We had an empty locker for our small bag. Just before take off, as usual there was someone walking the length of the aircraft trying to get his suitcase in a locker so we could take off. The air hostess took our small bag out, put the suitcase in, & told us we had to place our bag under the seat in front, restricting our leg room even further than the 2 inches you normally get. What was the point of our £20 extra? If we ever get the choice, we will not be travelling by Ryan Air again.

Tesco

Check the receipt regarding special offers !!!

Time and time again recently we have found the price shown on the shelf edge does not match the price charged at checkout. Eventually I got fed up and took my product back with my receipt (a few days after purchase as we live some distance fro the store). I was astonished at Customer services, who argued the price I had seen displayed under the product had never been there! The reason I had bought 4 of the items was purely as they were on special offer. Basically, I was told I was lying & they were not prepared to do anything about it.
MAKE SURE THE PRICE YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU PAY !!!!

Travel Republic

Dodgy hotel

We have rcently returned from an All Inclusive holiday booked through Travel Republic, and although everything went smoothly as far as organisation goes, we were not informed about the hotel being populated almost exclusively by aging Spanish holidaymakers. The entertainment was aimed directly to please them. If we had been advised prior to booking, we would have looked elsewhere.

DPD UK

Excellent service

Having just purchased an item online, I was sent a link to DPD UK to track my item. The link was excellent, I ws given exact information on DPD's website, even to the hour my delivery would be with me. This was accurate, and my delivery was on time. I would recommend DPD as a reliable courier company.

Go-Electrical

Excellent Value, Fast Delivery

Having searched the Web for a deal on this specific iron, I managed to find the best price available with Go-Electrical. I was a little concerned as I hadn't dealt with them before, but I needn't have worried. The communication was excellent, Emails confirming the order, payment, and then despatch. The link to the couriers website worked perfectly, and the information was brilliant even giving a delivery time to within an hour - which proved to be very accurate. The Iron seems to be what we had hoped for too. I would deal with Go-Electrical again, and will recommend them to family & friends.
