Equasis is recommended by this site as the 'go to' source for shipping information.   But how many of you are aware that your usage is limited?   The limit is not defined, it is not known whether it is a daily, weekly or monthly limit and no warning that you are approaching any limit is given.  But you will suddenly get a message on your screen that you have reached your 'page limit' and you are then locked out of the site for 7 days.   This has happened to me recently and also to a colleague chasing up information following a photo expedition to the Bosphorus.   So please be aware, you have been warned.  I could find no mention of this limit in the terms and conditions, and I am not sure whether it is a recent development, may be even a precursor to asking for payment for unlimited access.  If anyone has any more info. please share it with us.

haven't been there for ages. Miramar is my source to "go to", and that is not free either.

I also had this problem. But I log out after about half hour and then I log in again. That way I can get informations all day long.

Hi Allan,

It's not a recent development, I came unstuck like this 5 or 6 years after a particularly good few days on the continent.

Best regards,
David
