Pergamos crossing point

Has anyone any experience of crossing to the north at Pergamos, near Larnaca? I would like to know if it is possible to buy insurance at the crossing point as it is at Kato Pyrgos. Also, does an insurance policy bought at Kato Pyrgos cover a crossing at any checkpoint? I have previously got one by e...

Re: Beer prices in UK

In the UK this summer I was quite shocked to get a pint of mild for £1.34. I couldn't believe it so I had to have another just to check.
I didn't ask, but I assume it must be a promotion of some sort. I always thought the tax on beer was more than that.

Re: Starling Bank

The website says that it will "soon be available to everyone".
I think I went onto a waiting list some time back but never heard any more, which is a shame as it does look useful.

Re: Border crossing - Kato Pyrgos

If you open that link in Chrome web browser, Google will offer to translate the whole site into English; I clicked yes and it did just that. Thank you for that Happy in Cyprus. I use Chrome on a laptop but couldn't see an option to translate. However right clicking on any page does offer to transla...

Re: State of Origin matches 2019

I get Sky Sports on my magbox and watch all the Super League matches. Not much help to you if that's not what you've got, but as they're probably on early morning you might be able to find a bar that's open and will show them.

Re: 3 helicopters

I was out yesterday morning, walking in the forest beyond Lysos and had a very close encounter with two of them. They came right over my head at tree top height, creating a tremendous whirlwind, and hovered just over a field next to me. As I had a camera and binoculars I was concerned it was me they...

Re: Border crossing - Kato Pyrgos

I have found that it can be pre-ordered online by using this email address:

tijen.imer@daglisigorta.com

http://daglisigorta.com/ is a website in Turkish but I can't find an English translation on it.
looks like an insurance company.

Emails replied to very quickly and in good English.

Border crossing - Kato Pyrgos

Has anyone entered the north at Kato Pyrgos recently? I have always bought insurance at the border previously, but I'm told the insurance counter is not open there now and you have to buy it in the town. Was also told that you can pre-buy this by email. Has anyone done this and got an email address ...

Tree removal

Does anyone have a recommendation for someone to remove two overgrown Mimosa trees?
Probably just cutting down to a low level stump would do.
Situated in the Polis area.

Thanks.

........When I'm in the UK I don't have a clue in which bin I'm supposed to be depositing the rubbish.

Re: Staysure travel insurance

Trouble is, it's not the price you pay that counts in the end.... the important part is if you need to make a claim, will your chosen insurance policy and company pay out? For those who have made recommendations - are they based on price paid or action taken following a claim? For me, it's based on...

Re: Staysure travel insurance

We recently changed to Columbus Direct and are more than happy with them.
Not sure if they can offer what you want, but might be worth a look:

I've no connection with them. Just a satisfied customer.

Re: Printer cartridges - recycle for charity!

In the UK I used to send mine to Tesco to exchange for extra Clubcard points. Often local Scouts and similar groups will also collect them. I think these days they want the circuit boards out of them as they contain a lot of valuable metals.
