Admiral is a good one.. i got a quote for £754 for my first car. Increase your voluntary excess, reduce your annual mileage to like 4-5k and say it is for leisure and domestic only, parked in a drive way. Bla bla bla
ahahah you guys don't learn, Until you get hit or you hit something and a claim is put in then you will know why its best to give honest info, you will learn the hard way we all did!

What is dishonest about my comment please?
1 wen you say ur car is for pleasure and domestic o only and you use it for work 247
2 When you do not own a drive and you claim your car is parked in a drive overnight
3 When you use ur car for delivery and you say ur annual milage is 4k etc
Im not digging you out as being dishonest not at all, Im just trying to state a warning of what happens when you are I involved I n an accident then they might investigate and trust me those guys are good,

@all /Oga Lexus and others that know Kent please advise. Got 2 offers in Dartford/Gravesend & Maidstone Tunbridge wells. Family of 3 including a 1 year old currently living in hertfordshire. Where would you pick amongst both locations in Kent whilst considering below
Factors:
1.Nearness to London for partner's commute.
2. Fairly relaxed environment, activities for families easily etc etc
3.Would be renting till mid/end of next year with hope to get on the property ladder once familiar with the area.

NB: Cost if not really a factor here as we are flexible and all that matters is just a good place for now.

Pembury or Maidstone hospital?...
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by Ace2013(m): 5:25am On Nov 22

Both are right.

Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by Lexusgs430: 5:28am On Nov 22
Ace2013:
Right

Darenth is in Dartford...... Dartford is more or less London (you also get London weighting)........

One train from Dartford, takes you to the heart of London.......
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by Lexusgs430: 5:31am On Nov 22
Ace2013:
Both are right.

Darenth is closer to London....... Pembury is towards paddock wood, whilst Maidstone is about 25 minutes drive to Dartford........


If you don't drive, just settle for Darenth Valley jejely...... You dey share border with London...... cheesy
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by Ace2013(m): 5:33am On Nov 22
Thanks for this, there is only one car for us at the moment. You are right about the london weighting as well. However, do you know of any side of dartford to avoid when searching for a place?

Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by Ace2013(m): 5:45am On Nov 22
Not really at the moment, just better to plan ahead for when the pandemic is gone and would need to commute.

Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by Shercorp(m): 12:18pm On Nov 22

You see the bolded part, it shows there are a thing or two we need to learn about economics.
There is no hurrah here.


£1 to 500naira (your relatives in Nigeria could buy 1 bag of onions).

£1 to 610 naira (your relatives in nigeria can only buy 12 pieces of onions).

What is there to hurray?

Ask your relatives in nigeria how much a bag of cement costs now.

You are very correct..The more devalued the Naira gets, the more expensive things become in that country ... ...Personally I’ll invest in the UK rather than Nigeria....
