    The UK and European Consumer Centre......

    Post by papa_umau on Sat 18 May 2013, 12:23 pm

    A very good advice centre delivered by The Trading Standards Institute.

    Find this site and many specific and attached links by clicking HERE

    Consumer advice on travel and shopping in Europe

    When you travel in Europe, you will often buy your travel and holiday services from a seller based in another country: for example, a local branch of a car rental company or a foreign tour operator. You will also shop in the local stores.

    But you may also want to buy products or services online from abroad: shopping around on the EU-wide market can be a good idea as it often means money savings and a greater choice.

    This site contains basic advice on the six most popular consumer topics handled daily by the network of European Consumer Centres.

    You can get detailed online advice on specific consumer topics from your Centre.

    That looks like a good contact site.

    I wonder why these sites are not advertised more often, as this is the first place I have seen that official site anywhere ?

    Thanks anyway Papa.

    I hope I don't need it mind you.

    Because more and more people are now buying online and from abroad this risk is increasing daily.

    That is why I feel that knowledge of this site is up-to-the-minute and vital.

    Yep mate that is another good site to add to the weapons found in ROB.

    Mind you it is a long time since I either bought stuff from abroad or even went abroad on holiday.

    I could do with a good holiday too as it is a total drudge to have to work every day just to keep your head above water.

    I am soon going to be too old to climb forty foot ladders or to hang from a harness or a cherry picker bloody cleaning windows.
