Thank you everyone, your help has been invaluable and we will def be stopping on the "Il Serchio" private sosta when we arrive in Lucca. We might stop at a site nearby to where we are tomorrow now as it is directly on the beach and sounds very pretty, peaceful and tranquil and the motorhome pitches have views of the sea. We found that site on the internet thanks to a link Rapide sent me.

As for my Three Broadband Modem - I was defintitely told by Three customer services when I looked into buying their modem that any useage I used during my trip to Italy would come off my monthly user allowance and as Three have a contract in Italy it meant my allowance could be used there at no extra cost! If when I return to UK they do charge me I will have something to say about it that's for sure as it was because they said I could use it in Italy that made me decide to give up my vodafone datacard contract and change to Three!!! They wont get paid if they do send me a bill I can assure you lol!

Thanks again folks and I hope Neil and Sue you both are enjoying Italy too!

'They wont get paid if they do send me a bill I can assure you lol!' but won't they have your bank details if you pay by DD and just take it anyway ? isn't there a email you can write to so that you have confirmation in writing

Under the scheme, 3 phone users travelling between the UK, Ireland, Italy, Austria, Australia, Hong Kong, Sweden and Denmark will no longer be charged for receiving calls and texts.

Customers can also use existing minutes, text and data bundles to make voice and video calls, send texts, picture and video messages, and even surf the internet.

'The launch of the 3 Like Home scheme will significantly benefit our customers as they travel between the 3 Group's networks,' said Christian Salbaing, of 3.

'It underlines our commitment to fair treatment and reasonable pricing for all our customers.'

However, Salbaing warned 3 customers that they will continue to face high charges abroad if they roam on to a non-3 network because of the wholesale charges required by many of 3's roaming partners.

Hi Sue;
Can't add much to the above of any help, but do have a lovely time and let us know, better still post all the sites you stop at. I hope to be down that way next year when I'm back on the road again.

Hi Sue

Just check your account billing on your My3 as I have just received my first bill from them and they are charging me for all of my outgoing emails, they say as I have used my handset to send emails therefore I have to pay as they are free to receive not send. I have my handset set up the same as your modem. It would take hours to send an email typing one fingered.

I am disputing it as I have set up my emails on the laptop as I was told to do by them! I am dissapointed as to discus it you need to talk to the other side of the world and they have not got a clue, so just check your bill.
