Please don't think it's any better in the UK with Hermes deliveries. I ordered some car number plates from Ireland for delivery to my home address in Merseyside. Hermes received them Wednesday and the tracking said they were out for delivery Thursday. I left a note on the door asking to put the parc...

Re: Lloyds Bank international standing orders

Simply use Revolut or similar organisation. No charges for setting up a standing order between banks in different countries and an excellent exchange rate.

If you have 45 minutes to spare, sit in a quiet place and listen to this BBC Radio 4 episode of Andrew Marr ' start the week, broadcast a couple of weeks ago.

Re: Malaga car hire.

It’s important to distinguish between the minor “scams” such as
full/empty fuel policies and the downright scurrilous antics such as those practised by Delpaso. Most companies are just trying to maximise income

Re: Malaga car hire.

As I've advised in a number of previous posts here, please do not use Delpaso. You will be asking for trouble. The whole of the staff are involved in a scam to relieve customers of credit card payments as deposits. The management MUST be involved also as there must be a payout to the staff from cre...

Well thanks very much everyone for this advice on how to get UK TV in Spain. I'll explain all this technology to my 80 year old widow friend for whom I asked the question at the start of this thread.

Surely the whole process is random and unable to be manipulated. You just spend what you can or want. I just by a €20 share in a syndicate and get on with my life.

If you use a Chinese Huawei phone and use it to slag off their products, they’ll know about it because apparently they contain a spy chip which relays your information back to china!

Re: Passwords

I was actually logged in and just wanted to change the password. It came up as a “ suggested password”. That was my point. I realise that there are temporary passwords when you forget and need a new one.
