Looking at the consequences of the slight lifting of lock-down I’m sorry but this will only add to No Respect UK Plc.

Subject: [motorhome-list] E-scooters from Saturday

 

BBC News website:

 

Rental e-scooters will become legal on roads in Great Britain from Saturday, in a bid to ease pressure on public transport amid the coronavirus crisis.

 

The Department for Transport (DfT) said the first rentable e-scooters could be available next week, as it published guidance for e-scooter-for-hire firms.

 

The vehicles are banned on pavements, will be limited to 15.5mph and it is recommended that riders wear helmets.

 

Privately owned e-scooters remain illegal on roads.

 

Under the new rules set out by the DfT, local authorities and devolved administrations in England, Scotland and Wales can allow or run e-scooter sharing schemes in their areas as part of 12-month trials.

 

Riders will need a full or provisional car, motorcycle or moped licence to use the vehicles, and they must be aged 16 or over.

 

Won’t suit all of course but signs that the new world after lockdown will be different and bold decisions may well be taken.

I ordered one a couple of years back from a Singapore start-up
company. If I was looking to buy I'd go for similar specs. It had
suspension and broad fat tyres - good for coping with potholes etc.

My thinking at the time was although I couldn't use it in UK, it'd be
good for Europe where I "used" to spend a lot of time. It meant I
didn't need a bike rack on back of my wee camper - folds up small so
storing inside no problem.

Anyway it hasn't arrived - yet!

Re: E-scooters from Saturday

David Scholes
 

The EU regs on bikes are the same as U.K. Max speed 25 kph (15mph) except for Germany have a faster one but it has to have insurance and a licence. In UK bikes are NOT allowed on most pavements. But many people cheat just like road speed disabled scooters often cheat and go on the pavement.
The main difference is not the speed or going on pavements but the fact that the escooters are far more dangerous than bikes. And it is fairly obvious that most riders of them seem to totally disregard the laws.
I ride an electric bike but I wouldn’t go on a main road on one of those scooters.

Re: Travel/medical insurance

Further to earlier message  I had a look at Good to Go Insurance they are underwritten by Union Reiseversicherung AG, UK, also.


Re: Travel/medical insurance

charlie.green@...
 

Hi Don,

Two years ago after a health scare!! my medical insurance rocketed, wife also had a minor matter that also needed to be notified to the insurer. At first I went down the route of joint insurance for us as I had normally done. However I also looked at individual policies and found to my surprise it was considerable cheaper to take out 2 individual policy with 2 different Insurers, I am talking £180 difference. My policy for 90 days in Spain with heart issues was £110 my wife's £90. Had I taken the joint insurance it was £480.

The other strange thing was both Insurers, I went with Get Going Insurance my Wife with Puffin Insurance were both underwritten by the same German company Union Reiseversicherung AG, UK sadly when I looked for last years winter trip neither were now doing 90 day insurance.

I suppose what I'm saying is, as you probably know, it pays to shop around but also to consider individual policies as well as joint.

The cost was £515 with "good to go insurance", there's no upper age limit.

We might get three months in Madera this winter if all goes well.

Safe travelling

Re: Car insurance renewal

Insured as a full-timer with Comfort I have unlimited mileage. Then my
premium three times what have been quoted by some of you.

Interesting that Comfort doesn't have the no-claims discounts. But
they keep a record of proof of previous insurer's no-claim years
should you need it on switching again.

No it is not cumulative, it resets each year.

If you pay for say 5000 miles and you drive 4000, then everything is fine.
If you pay for 5000 miles and do 6000 miles in theory you will get
surcharged for the extra 1000 miles, this happened to me. They give an
allowance of 5% over your paid limit but as I say if you exceed this and
they find out you will be surcharged. Why does this matter? Well if you
are unfortunate enough to have an accident, whether your fault or not, you
mileage will be checked as a part of the claim procedure, if you have
driven more miles than you have paid for they will say the risk factor in
insuring you is higher, hence a surcharge. It is always better to over
estimate your annual mileage the underestimate.

If you own a second-hand van it will be up to you to prove you haven't
exceeded your annual mileage if the previous users had been high mileage
users. So MOT certificates or their modern equivalent will be needed as
evidence.

Your premium has gone up 8.3% even with inflation as low as it is, is it
really that much of an increase?
