I hope that the title is sufficiently attractive to attract plenty of interest, as is intended.
In the UK, we are also in Europe, with recognized trade agreements with fellow Eurozone partners. (But, as David Cameron's speech today referred to, it has its issues!)
What experience do contributors have of comparing prices from retail suppliers in the Eurozone compared with UK retailers for 'big ticket' items?
Let's take a few examples to cause you to reflect on your experiences and your desires - a high end custom rifle or shotgun, a chiller capable of accommodating several deer, a thermal imaging device - all circa £3000 to £8000.
Are there £ savings really to be made? How do we identify Eurozone retailers? Do we have to visit them personally to pay for the item and then go home with the purchase? Or, has it really worked for you on-line?
What happens if we order such an item? What £ to Euro exchange rates are best? How do these compare with those on the 'protective terms if something goes wrong' on credit cards? Will there be a nasty timeline and cash import duty shock horror in Customs & Excise Duty? Are there Customs & Excise regulations precluding such imports, including firearms, except through those wholesalers?
Is it a new time to be liberated and really enjoy cash savings, due to the weakness of the Euro to the £, that seems to have slumped by a healthy 20% in a year?
I remain to be corrected but look forward to your various replies.................
