URGENT INFORMATION: Alarm Company scam

ScamDue to a given occasion of alarm company scam in the Algarve, we'd like to publish the following statement, we received from afpop.

"We have been made aware of a potential scam from a person purporting to represent a company called Europe Alarm Systems. Unsolicited phone calls have been received from a female stating that she has obtained telephone numbers and names from the Land Registries and that they are offering free crime prevention surveys to home owners and that local Câmaras are paying for installation of alarms, which are then maintained at the home owners’ expense. Checks with local Câmaras and police has discovered that no such agreement exists.

Before giving ANY information over the telephone or inviting any such company to your home, please ensure that you have ascertained that the call and offer are genuine. Where another organisation is used to add credibility, for example Câmaras, GNR etc, please check with that organisation to verify what is being said to you. Any genuine caller will be happy to give their details for you to call them back once you have verified what they have said to you. Please make sure that YOU find the phone numbers for any other organisation and do NOT use any number given to you by the person that calls you.

If in any doubt at all – say no and report the call to your local police station."

General Strike Portugal 2011As in the year before a general strike is planed on the 24th of November 2011 which will affect a number of services such as train, ferry and flights on that date.

The two unions CGTP and UGT announced a general strike and this time Portuguese air traffic controllers will join in.

Therefore, the Portuguese airline TAP decided to stop selling bookings for that date. For passengers, who have booked a flight already for that day it should be possible to change the flight with no extra cost.

Anyone planning to enter or leave Portugal on that day will have to rely on information provided by their airline.

hotelverleichBei der Unterkunftssuche setzt jeder Urlauber andere Kriterien an. Der Eine sucht nur eine günstige Übernachtungsmöglichkeiten und ist viel am Strand unterwegs und der andere möchte mehr Entspannen und ein schönes Ambiente zum Lesen haben.
Businessreisende haben nochmal andere Anforderungen, die auch ein einfaches Arbeiten mit dem Laptop erlauben und absolute Nachtruhe garantieren.

Nutzen Sie die Hotelsuche von, denn hier ist die Besonderheit, dass Sie nicht nur die Hotelzimmerpreise miteinander vergleichen, sondern auch geografisch zugeordnete Privatzimmer entdecken, die oftmals vom Platzangebot und dem Ambiente im großen Gegensatz zu den Hotels stehen.
