Re: Has anybody got a clue, for people who spend 6 months of the year in Bg?

What a shambles!!
Mrs. Doe and I did not bother to vote in the referendum.
Cameron was an embarrassment "Tim but Dim".
Theresa May was a useless Home Secretary, then was promoted to Prime Minister.
One thing may come out of this debacle is that the House of Lords should be downsized

Re: Has anybody got a clue, for people who spend 6 months of the year in Bg?

I expect that this year will be a bit of a bumpy ride for Mrs. Doe and me. As luck would have it, our EHIC card runs out in February, and cannot be renewed until February. Our Bg. Card (renewed every 5 years), also runs out at the same time. So we will be in new ground,when we go up to Dobrich in mi...

Has anybody got a clue, for people who spend 6 months of the year in Bg?

Mrs. Doe and I are wondering how the documentation is going to transpire. From previous posts, I garner that an International Driving Licence may be required. 3 months is the normal length for a visa. There are "interesting times" ahead for us, when we go to Dobrich for our Lichna Karta. C...

Re: Problems ending a mobile contract

“caveat emptor” should be in every English to Bulgarian translation book. In English language it has the translation of “Buyer Beware”. I was watching TV last year, The Money Programme,as I recall. A desk was set up in a large shopping precinct in Manchester. On offer was lifelong price for mobile p...

Re: Problems ending a mobile contract

Vivacon is hard work. This was for internet. Our experience with the scoundrels was very similar to yours. This happened to us about 8 years ago. Basically we went to shop in Varna in May, signed and paid for 12 months, though we knew that we would only need it for 6 months as we were returning to U...

Post Brexit. What will status of EHIC be?

Has anybody got a strategy for post Brexit in regards to health issues, whilst staying in Bulgaria? People, who live over there full time would probably have the option of paying into the Bulgarian Social Security system. However, there are many people (myself included) who go there for 6 months onl...

Re: registering and insuring a UK car in Bulgaria

Your UK Number Plate is handed over at the KAT station, and presumably UK DVLA is informed.

Re: cost of holiday in bulgaria

LOL Malarkey, it is good to hear from a reader of the "GRAUNIAD". I only use it for the crosswords,(free). I have visited Bulgaria many times over 13 years and it is still full of surprises. Swmbo could not do a winter there, but we look forward to go back there every May. The flights etc....

Re: cost of holiday in bulgaria

Gawd help us!!
I travel 1800 miles to getaway, then the BBC have to follow me.
Last year, it was the "den of iniquity", then this year it is "the most remarkable place on the planet".
I must admit, that it is not a place that my grandchildren would take me to. :roll:

Re: VAT confusion on sale of property

This is bad news. I think that this year, I may have to increase the Insurance Value on my house to cover this VAT. Keep this a secret in case the house burns down, else the Gypsies will want 20 % on top. Still I suppose, that I can put it against Capital Gains (Loss) Tax. I will ask the estate Agen...
