Have they always asked or did it start during COVID when business travel was allowed but leisure wasn't?

When we book Easyjet, each flight asks if it is for Leisure or Business. I always mark Business. But haven't a clue what difference it makes!

People keep saying they are not checking. It would be almost impossible for boarder guards to manually go through the stamps in a passport and ensure you didn't spend more than 90 days in a rolling 180. I think that is what ETIAS is for. It will be all electronic then and the computer will say "no".

So lets say, I have used up my 90 days at leisure in Tenerife. But while I was out there, I discovered a locally manufactured item. that since on my return, I believe I could import to the UK and remarket. Therefore, I need to return to Tenerife on BUISNESS and arrange for these items to be exported. Will they turn me away or fine me!

The Irish have a separate agreement of free travel to the UK and vice versa. They also are not part of the Schengen zone.

Because under their stupid laws we are not allowed to enter a EU country until the 05/07 because of our stay in the winter & as we are going to Barbados in August we wanted to go to Portugal in June, their loss.

Its about time we levelled the playing field & stopped EU residents staying here for 6 months, I wonder what the Irish would say about that ?

Why does a week in Vienna make more than a weeks difference?

We have been here 25 days in June but it won't affect our allowance in winter because it will drop off the end of 180 days as new days are added at the beginning. So we will still get our full 90 days.

Lets hope the quality of the food continues, the main advantage of the food was Henrik was a chef not a cook like most of the restaurants. Lets hope they keep Gemma as she knows most of the regular customers as the Chinese usually don't.

As for the Chinese taking over, most of the restaurants they have purchased have been rubbish.

Edward Bear have to agree with you the liver is very good & some of the weekly specials were great value.

Sadly because of the STUPID EU 90 day rules & my wife going on a girls week away in Vienna & our 50th in Barbados we will not be able to go again this year to get our 3 months in January, the law is crazy we would have liked a short break in Portugal this month but again we are not allowed I hope somebody teels the sunshine EU countries that they are losing money because of this STUPID LAW.

Pilgrim, I was brought up on Rabbit pie, stuffed Ox heart and liver and bacon. I have managed to survive to almost eighty seven years of age so it aint done me much harm. If you like something different find a restaurant that serves conejo salmarejo (rabbit stew) it is delicious if cooked well.
