Hi Jess,

European countries keep changing recently, and I haven't looked up the latest, but I know for sure that Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Slovenia and Montenegro are in Europe (countries of the former Yugoslavia). Also some very small ones: Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Vatican City; Switzerland isn't in Paul's list; not sure about others and I can't be bothered to google it now! Some of the former USSR like Moldova might be in Europe now, I'm not sure.

Are you just curious who will answer this? ;)

If Paul doesn't mind me doing a bit more editing: Australasia (Australia plus extra islands) and Antarctica (spelling) :)Please don't accuse me of being a spelling nazi :?

No I hated that, Jilly, at every parent's meeting they said I didn't speak up enough. I hated seeming like a know-it-all so I kept quiet :(I just thought there's no point me sticking my hand up, I know the answer, why not let someone else have a go? Can't understand people who are full of themselves really. I got teased about it a lot at home :?so I've never felt any sense of achievement about academic stuff. More like, I only got 99%, why did I get that one wrong?

times a fraction by 100 like 1/2 = 50 now divide by 100 u get 0.50 1/4 = 0.25
percent its piss easy tho u just divid by 100 :lol:

if its nationwide login online and goto help and overdraft or go in branch and ask...

life insurance is u pay wat ever amonther it asks and on ur death the lump sum u did the contract for gets given to ur kids/whoever u said on ur will etc tho sometimes the payment is nullnvoided by certain types of death

Jess, if someone is trying to sell you life insurance, you don't need it, because you don't have any dependents, so tell them to naff off, it's mis-selling (ie they are being naughty). Life insurance is taken out to ensure that your dependents are provided for in the event of your death. If you don't have any dependents, it's pointless. Banks are always trying to sell financial products like this, they get a huge wodge of profit from it.

An overdraft is what happens when you take more out of your bank account than you have in it. It can be an authorised overdraft, which you have arranged with the bank in advance, or an unauthorised one. Avoid the last one like the plague, you will be charged penalties. The bank should be happy to arrange an overdraft facility for you if your credit record is OK - which means you can go overdrawn if you need to without incurring penalties - but you still have to pay interest on the amount you've overdrawn. Remember banks make their money by encouraging you to owe them money, and charging you for the privilege.

Have a look at money saving expert dot com (no spaces) for good advice about this sort of thing.
