Re: Can UK O.A.P'S Survive in Spain On Basic Pensions.?

He allowed his opinion and Benidorms reply was just as rude, so should he be reported too, some people need to get a life, you're in cyberspace not your local pub. This forum would just be all one clique if the mods listened to the whinging that goes on over nothing, you could all agree with one an...

Re: Andalucia.com

If one is really keen on becoming a Guru I guess they only have to join and play the endless 'Word Association' thread. :think: Is there any point? :? Just had a first look (I think) there have been 16 topics since 2008! The word association was new to me as well, I think I can live without that! :D

Re: Andalucia.com

Its a concern because there is a restriction. This web site is not open and in my opinion is controlled by a minority who dictate their views and use their self attained status to give false credibility to their posts. AFAIK, the webpage is privately owned (Sid will correct me if I'm wrong) and the...

Re: Can UK O.A.P'S Survive in Spain On Basic Pensions.?

My family always pay their way. We have a 'kitty' while they are here, a bowl of money where we all put in - say - 30 euros at a time - and replenish it as we shop. If we go out for a meal, we go Dutch. . I'm sure you're not alone, but in this and similar forums it seems to be all one way traffic, ...

Re: And you thought Ryanair were at it?

We flew with Vueling recently and they have a choice of three differently priced tickets. The basic is just that, the next level up that we went for, it includes a 22kg case plus the usual carry on, instant check in, a seat which you can change if you don't like where it is (subject to seats being a...

Re: Shopping in UK o Spain

I'm going to start making a list of these recommended Spanish restaurants. On the very odd occasion I've managed to get a decent meal and less than surly service but they've been few and far between.

Re: Car Hire

I needed a car for a friend for 8 days. Quoted and booked via DOYOUSPAIN 80 Euros. When you collect they want 6 euros a day extra insurance plus 75 euros for fuel. The 80 euros rises to over 200. What a con. Why cant they be more transparent about there fees. If you do not want extra insurance you ...
