    Ryanair - carry on bag wrong size - 40 Euro charge

    Gatwick to Dublin Ive seen them walk around with the box many, many times. The seem to always pick people they think are not likely to argue. I really do think they have a quota from what ive seen.

    decorating and tax returns?

    Someone asked me ages ago, but I didnt know the answer. What about the same arrangement, but the person doing the work is a relative of the landlord? Does it work the same way.

    Wife secretly giving money to in-laws

    I was just looking in here again too tonight. Very interesting developments from Neo. I wish him the best. Nothing so soap opera in my case. In my own situation, it turned out our other brother was being hit up, as I was, for money too. We sat little bro down and had it out. Had it out...

    Ryanair - carry on bag wrong size - 40 Euro charge

    I was on a ryanair flight before christmas and the check-in person came along with the box and put it over my bag. It fitted perfectly in, with loads of spare space left.. Then she said that I had to undo the buckles on the bag that are used to tighten it up so it stays in shape. I said hold...

    Ryanair. Frustrating website security feature. Re-enter security code every few mins.

    Use skyscanner.ie When you select the date choose the "whole month" option. Ryanair wont be on it anymore, but its just easier than going to each site.

    Ryanair. Frustrating website security feature. Re-enter security code every few mins.

    I found this out last night. Its terrible. I just use skyscanner. I noticed Ryanair wasnt on it and went to their site to have a look at flights for different dates only to be driven insane by this captcha thing they have now. From now on im just using skyscanner. If Ryanair dont want to be...

    Ice stick energy system

    If these units are as simple as they say then they are not worth 10k. Also i would think if they were any good that you'd know a lot of people who have them and could ask them. Id worry about this one.

    Banning rent supplement recipients from complex

    So rent allowance recipients cause the vast majority of antisocial behaviour in a complex? They probably do. Is the answer to ban them all. I think it would would work. But here is the exact same scenario. Do non owner-occupiers renting the units from the landlords cause the vast...

    Preparing a property for new tenancy

    Reduce the rent and make the changes. But get a new tenant. Going from my experience, you are going to be driven mad by these guys, so get someone else. While they may have been right to bargain you down as you asked too much and even right about getting it redecorated. The fact that they...

    In Rome, trip to Pompeii. Is it worth it??

    Why not cancel one or two nights in the hotel in Rome and stay in Naples for one or two nights. That way you could go down in the evening stay the night and spend the whole day in Pompeii. Then come back either the next evening or the morning after that. Your hotel in Rome would look after your...

    If the euro goes down because of devaluation will irish deposits in Rabo be devalued?

    Your contract probably is about the rate, not the currency. it tracks the ECB rate. So, if the currency is different you still get the ECB rate.

    PTSB Mortgage holders to get 10pc bonus for paying lump sum off trackers

    I think you are right. They would entice many more people with this offer on overpayments. More people will be prepared to overpay monthly than pay off lump sums. Thats if they even have a lump sum in the first place. Im surprised the other banks havent followed this offer publicly though...

    Will banks chase the debt?

    I have a friend from Brazil who has been living in Ireland for the last 20 years. He bought a house in Ireland in 2006 which is now suffering, along with the rest of his estate from pyrite. Homebond will not pay. House insurance will not pay. He was in negative equity anyway, and now with the...

    New VAT Rate for Hospitality - do the reductions get passed to consumer?

    Simple question. Simple solution. Yet some people insist on beating about the bush and not even attempt to answer the question for the OP. Typical of accountants, solicitors etc really. Complicate things far beyond how complicated issues need to be. OP, im sure you can figure out how to help...

    New VAT Rate for Hospitality - do the reductions get passed to consumer?

    I think you're making something very complicated here where there is no need for complication. Cut it whatever way you want. Get an invoice, a quote, a receipt etc. You can have the VAT rate and amount on them all if you ask for it. And just for yourselves. INVOICE : "An invoice or...

    New VAT Rate for Hospitality - do the reductions get passed to consumer?

    This i not a B2B transaction. Get a receipt/quote that shows the VAT rate. That is not an offence. You are allowed to do this. When there is no mention of VAT then its VAT inclusive. If it says ex VAT then its excluding VAT. Its the simplest most straightforward thing in the world to ask a...

    New VAT Rate for Hospitality - do the reductions get passed to consumer?

    Of course she does. The vendor cannot pocket the difference in the vat rates. What they can do is increase what they are charging for the service. This has nothing to do with the VAT rate change. But thats a breach of contract if she has already agreed the price. If the price is agreed today...

    New VAT Rate for Hospitality - do the reductions get passed to consumer?

    Rubbish. Just like your last post in this thread. Its not uncommon to get VAT invoices more than once. Its also not uncommon to get a VAT invoice and then a receipt with the vat on it either. Please shows us the "VAT laws" that are breached? And if they are worried, because of your post, then...
