    I have told carer that i will pay for 1 text a day so she can let her family know she is ok. She can recieve texts for free. I really do not want to be paying for her to text her mates all the time. The whole holiday is paid for her and all her meals. She will also be getting 20 hours a week extra pay. I did tell her to start i will not pay for every hour she is away and she agreed to this when we booked the villa last August.

    I think that is more than fair. Wow, I don't think I would even pay anything towards a phone bill. Is she complaining about the one text?

    Fair. And responsible. Anything else is her responsibility.

    Not as yet. She said the other day all her family and friends have mobile phones and she could not afford to text home. She said if she could not text home she would spend all her time crying . I told her i would not be happy with this. So i have agreed to pay for one text a day. I am hoping it will not be an issue. I would be really cross if she crys all the time as it will ruin it for us all.

    *MORE* than fair in my opinion! Sounds like a great deal to me personally.

    I realise it's not 100% a holiday for her, she'll be expected to perform carer duties but even so it sounds like a more than fair deal!

    ok dont shout me down its just my own opinion............... i would hate only being able to send 1 text a day to my family i would have thought 3 more of a reasonable amount as if her family ask a question and she cant afford to reply........ please dont be annoyed at me for saying that :)

    Well I don't know how much a text back to the UK costs so I probably shouldn't be commenting here. But I would think that something between 3 & 5 per day would be reasonable.

    course no one will be annoyed

    thing is, we're only talking about what's paid for FOR her here. If she wants to text or phone home more than that she could pay herself?
