if i need batteries in the future this will be my first place to order from .

i needed a watch battery and thought, i'll be dammed if i'm going to the jewellers and pay £5 just for a teeny battery. so i thought i'd check out some on the internet, to my delight i found this site, and it cost a fraction of the price shops sell them for. so i stocked up on other types of batteries as well, the more you buy the cheaper they are .

Travel Republic

Travel Republic was very good would use a gain

We went to Goa begining of December 2012 . I would use Travel republic again, all bookings when smoothly no problems at all . airport parking, to taxi transfers from airport to hotel went without a hitch. (the only thing i would say is that it would be cheaper to just get your own taxi at airport as we found it might've been a lot cheaper than booking it), but this is a hindsight, there are plenty of taxis at airport so there is no problem . Hotel was exactly as described, excellent choice of hotel which was the Terra parasio in calangute. most of the locals thought it was a 5 star hotel but for a 3 star hotel this was excellent . perfect holiday,



I brought a pair of jegging from SD,took them home tried them on , they were too big, took them back next day for a smaller size, they din't have any, chose similiar pair but cheaper in price and expected a £5 refund in diffrence, eh! no they offered me a credit note for £5 i refused it and asked for the £5 to be refunded on my debit card. No can't do that the salesgirl said, they called the manger, Thats our policy he said, I replied "IT'S MY POLICY NEVER TO ACCEPT A CREDIT NOTE, I AM COMPROMISING HERE TAKING A CHEAPER PAIR INSTEAD OF DEMANDING THE WHOLE TOTAL OF PURCHASE BACK". Even the salesgirl said she wouldn't be happy accepting a credit note, She was fine with me but the manager was adamant , i asked where the notice was that it was against their policy to refund , cos i never saw one! then i asked to check the item i'd bought for any faults as i might get a refund if the item was faulty and to get a total refund. The manager then accused me of trying to sabotage the garment in front of him, As if i would when there is a camera above the til desk. All i wanted was a £5 refund for the difference. i am now stuck with a pair of jegging of lesser quality than the orignal ones i brought and a £5 credit note i'd be too embarassed to give anyone for a present. Primark even give refunds if you change you change your mind with no questions asked. This is a crap Company raking in money for shoddy goods. No wonder their permanet Staff got shares in the company as a bonus in 2011. I WILL NEVER STEP FOOT INSIDE ANOTHER SPORTS DIRECT SHOP EVER.
