So, if any of you were holding back because you thought you'd be the only ones, you have, as the Aussies say, 'No Worries'. Get in touch via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Facebook and let us know you're coming. Join the crew!
There are some vehicles going so depending on numbers there will be lifts into town centre and back. When we arrive in Zeebrugge we have shoppers going to Bruges and Ostende. Either destination has experienced travellers going so you'll be able to get advice on shopping and transport etc. lf you just want to go by yourselves ... that's fine too ... everyone does as they want.
When booking starts on the 12th Sept please book without the option of transport from P/O. I find it expensive and there are cheaper ways of getting into the town centres. Advice will be given on this and if all else fails or you prefer ... the transport from P/O is still available
Regarding shopping for tobacco, l prefer Bruges simply because l like Bruges. Others prefer Ostende so it is up to you where you go. l would advise you to pre-order your tobacco though so you know it's there and not out of stock. ln Bruges you can pre-order from here. You don't have to put any deposit down, credit card details or the like ... they simply reserve it for you. Payment is in Sterling.
There is tobacco onboard the ship for sale ... see here, but be aware that stocks are usually very limited and they often run-out.
How much can you bring back? ... As much as like for your own personal use and gifts ... THERE ARE NO LIMITS! Be prepared though .. whether you are above the UKBA guidelines or not. Think of it as insurance ... preparation is EVERYTHING! UKBA will take it off you if you give them the chance ... make sure you don't give them the chance! Contact us and we'll advise you on your specific purchase intentions. For those buying cigarettes ... the same applies.
Some of the 18 (to date) going on this trip are non-smokers, they are coming to support us ... and have a fun time! Both me and Zaphod fully expect to be pulled by UKBA upon our return as we are high profile and a constant pain in the ass for UKBA ... that'll be fun for us!
Not forgetting that you have a cheap weekend away. Where else can you get 2 nights accommodation and a trip abroad for 20-30 quid? lt's worth it for that alone, never mind the cheap tobacco, wine, chocs etc. lt's as cheap as chips!
We want and expect the trip to have a party atmosphere and everyone enjoy themselves. We shall of course talk about how to deal with the UKBA and how to expose their illegal, unjust, corrupt, robbing tactics.
We ARE Legitimate Cross-Border Shoppers, we are NOT smugglers! We will NOT be intimidated by the UKBA! Time to FIGHT BACK!
