Orange contract

Does anyone know where the nearest Orange shop / outlet is to Torrox, where they speak a reasonable level of English, would it be Nerja, Rincon, Velez,?? I am trying to renegociate my current phone service contract and they are making it almost impossible to do online. My only option to do this now ...

Re: No bags at Lidl

"Why should they sell bags" ? because they always have done, why stop now, and why not inform their customers of this, I wasn't looking for any petty remarks just pointing out the sudden change of policy !!

Re: Financial Advisors...Again.

I wouldn't pi55 on a so called financial advisor if I saw one on fire, Lets not forget these so called advisors first priority is to take a commission whether the investor makes a profit or not, the only people you can trust to give secure financial advice are located in old school Swiss banks !!

Credit/debit cards in retail establishments

Does anyone know if retail establishments in Spain are legally required to accept debit/credit/bank cards as payment.
Iv'e noticed a number of, admittedly, smaller retailers in the Torrox area who do not accept cards as payment, it doesn't bother me either way but I'm curious ?

Re: Van or towbar and trailer?

I'd go with costakid, a flat back 4x4 is much more practical (you could always put a towbar on it later !
