Re: Tourism

The tourist numbers have increased every year to Spain since about 2010 and more in the last few years with turmoil in Turkey and other places, i seen this morning on TV that tourists were returning to Tunisia.

Re: Taxes for residents

I know a few people in a similar situation and the general consensus is if you have substantial income stay non-resident.
Because Spain enconomy much lower level than US the income/assets threshold lower and you will basically be screwed...

Re: HIRING A COACH

Patricia, I was thinking more that you keep the group intact, collect the money and just pass money on to travel agent who will give you the tickets and you just pass on to each individuals involved, it is likely the group fall apart as people will not bother going to the agent and you end up with h...

Re: HIRING A COACH

I would suggest if you worried about liability that you go to travel agent who do regular daily excursions and ask them to set-up the trip. I have only done one as really not my thing, i remember it was only something like €10 pp for day trip and you buy the tickets from travel agent so your out of ...

Re: Engine Warning Light - Automatic !TV fail???

This may be of use. The last car i had a 2007 Nissan which is still alive as i sold local. There was a light used come on, if i disconnected battery for say an hour it stayed on, however when left disconnected over night it stayed off for about 200 km. I have also heard of people adding a few litres...

Re: Common tourist phrases in bars and cafes

I have being to Puerto a few times but as tourist stayed in some hotel, i do not know the area well. If its a tourist area like costas i am surprised they have no English, this is the reason i thought it be Spanish. The Spanish economy is in a bit of a mess and i do admire your efforts to try and he...

The brown will be the live and the blue nuetral, you will need to establish for sure which is the live on the original wiring, though it is likely the black we need to know for sure. There are two reasons for this, first it is better to have the live switched for the light as the power does not ente...

Re: Common tourist phrases in bars and cafes

The first question Oscar need ask himself is.... who are my customers? in this game it is about being aware of this and focus on them, if this works generally the rest falls into place.The problem with making it into English bar is others may feel out of place.

With EasyJet we need to have our dates ready before we go in as the system obviously triggers by the amount of people looking on the route. One thing worth watching is the amount of people looking at the route your looking at, it shows in the window just below the route. Another thing book as many f...
