Sky TV tips

I'm thinking of having Sky installed and have been getting a few quotes but there seems to be quite a variation in price. I know nothing about the technical stuff - what should I watch out for eg do all digiboxes do the same thing etc etc. Also does anyone else have a gadget to enable Sky to be watc...

I should think Tata is in the same league as Kia... We are going for a Peugeot Partner - not 4x4 but hopefully more reliable.

Thanks for that.

VW Caddy too low for our track... from what i can see the Peugeot and Renault are the highest of the 'furgonetas'. Think we might go for the Partner.

Renault Kangoo 4x4 or Peugeot Partner

Anyone got any opinions on these cars? We need a high car preferably with 4x4 (for the odd muddy day) but would rather avoid the Jap/Korean 4x4s...

Interesting to hear everyone's views. As to whether we need/want one - ideally I would prefer not to have to fork out for one as when they do go wrong they are so expensive to fix, but we do live up a 3k dirt track and even if not muddy, the extra height is needed. We have been incommunicado a few t...

4x4 recommendations

Hi Our Kia Sportage has finally given up the ghost (rubbish car) so now it's time to find a replacement. Ideally we want something roughly the same size - what does anyone think of the Toyota Rav, Honda CRV or Land Rover Freelander? New or second hand? Any tips appreciated including any good second ...

Travel insurance

Can anyone recommend a good travel insurance company? I want a 'family' type insurance just for a week going back to UK just in case our bags disappear or whatever.

Thanks

Long term rentals

I want to rent out my house long term and was wondering whether anyone knows of any good places to advertise on the internet or elsewhere. The house is inland near Lake Vinuela.
