Re: Expat car Insurance UK

Thanks, Secret,

It's like a minefield and one company has quoted £289. for 28 days, so I'm using that as a base. I'll certainly take a look at the sites you've suggested.

Kind regards,

:-D

Expat car Insurance UK

Hi all,

I have to return to the UK. My son is letting me use his car, but I have to MOT, Tax and insure it. I haven't had UK car insurance for over 9 years. Is it easy to get car insurance for a month or so?

If so, can anyone recommend an insurance company.

Thanks in advance. :)

Cat Spaying

Hi,

I know a person, on a low income, who has a cat that needs to be spayed. Is there an equivalent of the PDSA (UK) here?
Thanks in advance. :-D

Re: SOL Company - Cleaning

Good evening, What do you think of the company SOL (cleaning). What is the average monthly net salary? As a worker does it matter whatever cleaning company it is? if you are not going to invest on it? All companies in Finland are registered and have obligation to pay you salary for worked hours be ...
