Today is a public holiday in spain many people in the Bilbao area have holiday homes on the coast towards Santander the restrictions only allow travel to work or for food or medical reasons but lot of these people still tried to get to their second homes police have set up road blocks and are turning them round after giving them fines of 1500 euros so in Spain dont travel unless you havea valid reason and only one person in a car if shopping

Ray's link is a broken image for me. I think @Penquin Dave had the necessary phrase?

Thanks Ray. I am hand writing it out in French but knowing what I am signing does help.

Pete 4X4 - thank you for the reassurance that you are using CampingCarParks. I cannot send their form to them but I have sent them an email explaining our position and declaring that we are going home etc. Hope that is acceptable to them.

Pete 4x4 It would be great if you could update how your journey is going.

Personal Aire
We have started north from Meze towards Paris, not been stopped or asked for anything currently planning to stop at an aire at Buere-allichamps another camping car park aire. Done about 100 miles got another 150 to do. 6 hrs driving is enough for me.
Roads are empty and I agree to stick to motorways where possible

if you complete the attestation form online, you can save that as a PDF to your device and that will be sufficient proof for the gendarmes - no need to write it out longhand or print it out.

Thanks Pete and FatBuddah.
Rumours going around that France has "gone into lockdown". Some campers set out for home from another campsite, in spite of having correct documents, they were told to turn around and go back or face a huge fine. We do not know the reason but people are saying that it is because France has gone onto "shutdown". I thought they were already on shutdown?

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.

afaik, that process is only applying in Spain and not France - France are not stopping travellers returning to the UK, or certainly weren't up to yesterday and not heard of any change of policy. at one checkpoint in Rouen on Tuesday, the gendarmes were just waving Brits through but checking locals had their forms. we also got stopped yesterday morning outside Boulogne but only so teh gendarmes could check we were headed home and to wish us luck, but didn't want to check our attestation.

Friends in their camper have just crossed into France heading home with no checks whatever. No police assumed they were all at lunch.
They were in the Costas and actually live in the Vienne. So a lot of scaremongering although I did see on France 24 up to 4000 people have been fined for not having the correct document on them.
