    Spain - Umm, I just walked right in??

    I remember a number of years ago wasting a day in London at the French Embassy getting a schengen visa. Had to show I had return tickets, availability of money etc. Got off the ferry in Calais and walked straight past an unmanned immigration booth :mad:

    Free to good home - 1 x Qantas Club pass, expires end Jan09

    Hi Moody, If the passes are still available I would love 1 (or preferably 2). I am going to Adelaide for the Tour Down Under and may get rather thirsty trying to keep up with Lance. Unfortunately I am not pre-disposed to mirth & merriment and therefore my posts have usually been questions...

    virgin cancellation would cost me the same

    I am in no way an expert and will bow to others knowledge if I am on the wrong track however it may pay you to check that if your partner simply doesn't show up for the first leg of the ticket/ flight whether the return trip is still "live".

    Is My Credit Rating Checked For a Credit Limit Increase Offer?

    They would only be looking at their own internal systems - repayment history/arrears/average useage etc as it would breach the Privacy Act to do a credit check without your specific authorisation.

    I'm looking forward to seeing if it was a trip from HEL(L) or HEL(SINKI) Nice start - always like a man who can have a pork chop for breaky and an hour later be having a Crownie.

    Footy GF's.....

    In every cloud there's a silver lining. I am in Perth and have just arranged for one of my mates (based in Melbourne) to come back for the weekend. Whilst the flights are at somewhat uncivilised times - it won't be too often that you can fly Melbourne - Perth return for $390 (plus taxes).

    (OT a bit) No more HP's in BNE domestic QP!

    Price certainly does not equate to quality. Crownies would have to be one of the most over-rated beers going around. If you happen to catch the local liquor store on a good day $40 can buy a lot better tipple!! Can't wait for Dan Murphy's to make it over the Nullabor.

    Thanks for the advice. Think I'll do the up and back to Kalgoorlie (on the same plane) thing. Give me a chance to read the paper and eat back to back "breakfasts"!!
