    Is there someone in France who could pay a small bill for me ( €6.90 ) ?

    I am happy to square up via Paypal or by whatever means you like :Smile:

    It is a bill incurred when Woman decided to try stunt riding and ended up in the Avignon hospital !

    Tried to pay via the bank and they want to charge me £20.00 for the service for goodness sake !!!!

    Jaws.....:Doh:....I know the feeling.....in April this year the new Rapido motorhome needed its first annual MOT / control technique...(Mmmm..over 3.5 tons it has to have a MOT from the first year and every year after:cry:)

    Well we had a hard job trying to find a Control technique that would do one for over 3.5 tons...
    We found the nearest was 56km away a large station for articulated lorries...we booked the motorhome in and a few days later we took the motorhome over for its MOT....
    Completed and fine just the paperwork and pay the bill.....100 Euros.the inspector said..we got the cash out to pay... inspection man said.. AH.. we do accept CASH, MONEY,EUROS:Eeek::Doh:...WHAT!!!!...OK we have our DEBIT card with us.....AH..we do not take DEBIT card.....BUT we will take a cheque...so WE now said ...AH..we have not have fetched the cheque book with us..I said we now have a problem...the inspector said, it is not a problem.... we will BILL a lorry firm close to you... BUT we said we do not know any...he said not a problem we send them the bill and we will give you a name you call and pay it:Eek!: sorted...he did and we called coming back home WITH THE CERTIFICATE IN OUR HANDS.....the bill was 100 euros ..+ 3 euros for there admin chargers.....total 103 euros ..:Doh: I can laugh at it now:Wink::Wink::Rofl1::Rofl1:..we live in France ...3 FR/bank accounts and we need a lorry firm to pay our bill.:Doh:

    So as I said we know the feeling

    I had a similar problem about 5 years ago when my wife required treatment in Ostend. I offered to pay at the time,but was told e111 would cover costs. Eleven months later i recieved a demand for 29 euro from a solicitor in Ostend. I offered to pay by debit or cheque,but solicitor wanted a bankers cheque which he then returned saying it would cost him too much to cash. Eventually the bill was paid 4 months later in cash next time we were in Ostend.

    All sorted, big thanks to both VeeVee and Stcyr for leaping forth and assisting

    I appreciate these bills do not need to be paid immediately but I hate having anything like this out standing
