I can send the form as an attachment to your e-mail Pat but you need to print it out somehow. Don't think this will work.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

We have a lot of experience of French Aires and the majority have no way of restricting access. Most service points on them have just an open flap to cover the cassette emptying drain so will accesible. If the rinse water is turned off then use a bit from your grey-water drain pipe, which is what we do often when we do not need fresh water.


Good luck.

It is perfectly acceptable to write it longhand, it appears you have to have a piece of paper, they have not approved having it on a phone or tablet.

BUT, it needs to be done FOR EACH PERSON SEPARATELY AND MAKE SURE THE DATE IS CORRECT, but they have not said that changing the date would not be accepted.

The fines for NOT having it have already been changed to a level between 135€ and 375€ so it is worth complying.

If you need supplies, the large super and hyper markets often have emptying facilities too - our local LeClerc has such a facility at the fuel station, so it is worth checking there. Aires can rarely be shut off from our experience, although some do have barriers for entry where a fee may be levied, either for a 24h stay, or for use of the facilities. Worth checking.

The Gov.Uk site has issued a warning that travel providers eg ferry companies have changed their service availability - Brittany Ferries being a notable example where from today in the only route that they are operating is Caen to Portsmouth. I have not checked if the tunnel has changed.

Good luck with your journey. Do keep us informed.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

If you want to use the CampingCarPark aires Pat, see the link in the 4th paragraph in this page. They have some arrangement with the govt (hopefully this isn't out of date) but you need to fill in a form and email it to them. Maybe get the campsite to print out sufficient copies for daily use in case that's necessary here. You could fill it out then photograph and send that? Obviously you won't be able to scan en route.

Feeling for you with all this stress. Just take it a day at a time.

Sorry you're having to move Pat, but it does sound as though the way of doing it is now harmonised between Spain and France. Good luck with it and keep us posted. Take care and keep your distance.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

If you decide to leave i would stick to the motorways and try to be as quick as possible carry enough food and water for the trip get the dogs passport signed before you leave as for the cassete travellers have no problem. An alternitve is to fly out and leave the dog my offer still stands BA are still flying out of Biibao and seats are avl prices up till mon around 100 euros then from tues 500 euros

Ray, do any of those paragraphs say " I am going to my main place of residence" ? My French is very basic but I cannot see any that do?
