Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

No, the transport companies have new temporary rules to work within, but still have to give authorities one working day notice of changes. If NX didn't get their scaling-back plans ready by late Thursday last week, the next effective date for changes would be Tues due to the working day's notice nee...

It was brilliant, generous introductory and ongoing cashback, good travel insurance, missed event ticket cover, extended warranties for electricals and white goods and no fee. The Egg product became Barclaycard Maste...
