Re: Road Tax Payment

Shouldnt the bill go to the address on the log book. The company that did the paperwork for you should have registared the car at your home adress?. I dont believe you can pay the car tax for next year until then. As its based on who is the owner on jan1st. Some townhalls allow you to change your ad...

Re: Registering residence locally

Ouch €90 each. Use a gestor for anything else. Far cheaper. Alot of money to pay for someone to make and online appointment for you and not much else.

Re: Travel Insurance

Legal residents of spain are still been refused access to healthcare even with the new law. As a tourist you wont get anywhere without showing a EHIC.local health centres have even been registaring residents with them (illegally) causing lots of issues for people who are ending up been billed.

Re: Best Android or other TV service box

Getting buffering when watching things like the G.P is prob more of an issue at the providers end because of the amount of people trying to access it

Re: Linea Directa

Alot of uk companies only give you a % depending on when you cancel. At the end of the day you have entered into a contract with them. Unless it says in the contract they will refund you then its upto them and the "goodness of their heart!"
