Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

That's good that repayments are not needed. In the US the equivalent, social security, is brutal when an overpayment is detected, wanting their money back now!

Re: Hua Hin Condo owners fined for short term rentals

Thanks for that Migrant. 4 nights is bad enough but what if it was 2 weeks @ 10k night !!!! I will be having a really good look at their contracts to see who is responsible in such cases. Perhaps the owner/renter was not advised of the cancellation or has a complete no refund policy or both. Whiche...

Re: Hua Hin Condo owners fined for short term rentals

Also what was the excuse for not refunding ? Crazy 88 The owner gave no excuse and all I got from Expedia was the hotel was not returning the money. I'm sure you know some hotels booked thru Expedia want payment when booking, others give the option of paying upon arrival. This one required payment ...

Re: Snakes in the house and garden

They, unlike many snakes, do not run away therefore it's easy to walk up on one which is not good. We had one last year that the dog found. Relocated him easily. I've read where they are small, but deadly.

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

Hmmm Both fish, and tofu, are high protein foods so perhaps something to do with that? As we get older (not old, older!!) our bodies, and metabolisms, change.

Re: Birds of Thailand

We seem to have plenty of the type that make loud calls in the middle of the night. Also a lot of 3am chickens, do they count?? I think you're in a relatively remote area with not much development, and no industry to speak of. Enjoy it while you can! :D My biggest problem is not pollution and indus...

Re: Hua Hin Condo owners fined for short term rentals

I am a "gold member" of Expedia whatever that means. Supposedly I have a better contact with customer service than the others. I've found Expedia useless in arguments so have dealt with them accordingly. Last year we cancelled a 4 night booking in Cha Am. Cancellation policy said 1 nights charge, OK...

Re: Most practical and least expensive way to transfer large funds to Thailand?

Is there a problem with sending money out? We are selling 2 properties and would like to send the money back to US, it will be fairly substantial. I have read, in the past, varying reports where the transfer is difficult, but can be done if you trace the funds to property. The properties are in my w...
