Driving down to Morrisons tomorrow, anyone know how things are at the border (traffic & customs).

We went down on Saturday and all very relaxed. Took about 15 mins to get in and no queues at all coming out. They didn't even look at our passports. Just waived us through.

Great, I thought given the current financial problems the border guards might be looking at raising a bit of revenue.

Thanks.

Saturdays are nearly always quiet getting into Gib.Its the weekdays that are the pain in the butt.

Went a week past Sunday, no queues at all, just drove straight through both ways. Almost pointless having customs/passport control there at all. Local lads were having a field day, filling the panniers on their scooters with countless cartons of cigarettes and driving straight through.

Problem with Sundays is the lack of fresh food like bread, pies etc on the shelves at Morrisons. Probably explains why there were no queues there either.
I've got an inferiority complex, but it's not a very good one!

It was an absolute nightmare coming in yesterday morning and this morning .... :thumbdown:

If it's raining everyone seems to drive over instead of walking - at 5 and 6pm last night the queue to get out was over an hour! :evil: it took me 40 minutes queueing to come out at 8.30pm last night!
