Re: Wanted FREE lift to London by student

I'm actually going/returning on these dates but you would have to arrange, and pay for insurance to drive my car as i certainly do not do this sort of trip in 24 hours, usually 2-3 days.

If you are ready to pay for insurance, and to take 2 maybe 3 days, depending on how pissed i get at my stops, then maybe we can do a deal

I can assure you during my time in Switzerland I was never living or studying free of charge.

Also @OP I basically offered what you were looking for a few months back! Shame the dates didn't match!

I'm doing the return trip at the start of October but I wouldn't be taking anyone for free.

Re: Wanted FREE lift to London by student

Well, it all goes around. When I was a student and broke, many people helped and supported me for free, same when I first lived in London- and when I travelled all the way to Switzerland by train on my own with very young children. Now when I can, I do the same for others- makes the world go round. And when my kids were students, I was very grateful for help and kindness shown to them when they were abroad.

Hope you find a way OP- but perhaps you need to be a bit more gracious with your attitude and language - it would help a great deal.

Also if you've been here since 2011 then your UK license isn't valid in Switzerland unfortunately.
