Re: Gift tax threshold /children

In Andalucia you can gift up to e120,000 (I think) if it is to buy a first house. Otherwise there is no gift allowance, although the starting rate on small amounts is less than 8%. I hasten to add this from memory when looking into it a few years ago, but I am sure there is someone who has more info...

Data protection

I know data protection regs are becoming ever more complex but is there any simpletons guide for what may or may not be applicable to a small club. We do not distribute email addresses for example but what else should we be aware of?

Land co-ordinates

I have a boundary map of a parcel of land. The boundary is marked on the map by a series of coordinates that I am unfamiliar with. It seems similar to a lat and long system as there is a north/south axis and an east/west axis. The coordinates are labelled ORDENADA and ABSCISA. The former labelled wi...

Re: Malagacar.com 15% discount

If that is really in the “small print” then it’s disgraceful as that is a major constraint for many tourists.

Bb4spain & iplayer

I use bb4spain for internet access and part of the package is a uk ip address which can be activated when required. On previous visits activating the uk ip address has allowed me to watch iplayer however now I am blocked! ITV seems to work ok, though. Does anyone else have bb4spain and hav a work ar...

Re: Malagacar.com 15% discount

Yes hellofan works but not always. I wanted a car for two months and the code didn’t work. I would have had to hire in smaller “chunks” of time.

Re: car hire excess insurance

They don't, or shouldn't, "take" the deposit in other words it will not show up as a transaction on your statement. They "block" the amount which means they have first call on that amount of money should they need to make the deduction if damage is caused. Delays in "unblock...

Can’t you just subscribe to Netflix in Spain? Or does that mean you only get Spanish content?

Re: car hire excess insurance

No. The car hire firm puts a hold on £1.5k. If your card limit is £2k your card will usually be blocked by the cc company if you attempt to make purchases in excess of £0.5k. If you are in this situation you would be well advised to have another credit card or debit card!

Re: 2 New Italian Restaurants

Yep, used to buy them at Morrison’s at dirt cheap prices. Haven’t seen them there for ages but needless to say Waitrose have them - at Waitrose prices. Oh for the days when you could buy lamb neck fillets and pork belly at rock bottom prices. Good old Gordon Ramsey cooks them up and the price treble...

Re: 2 New Italian Restaurants

I only like "authentic" sparingly :wink: I am a bit queasy about some fish and meats. Don't like anything out of the sea with a head on it, snails, little birds etc. Wouldn't go for the cheek meat either although probably have without knowing it. Authentic italian to me is fresh pasta, pr...

Re: car hire excess insurance

You just give them your credit card details. You dont need to have insurance from anybody if they have those details, because they can just charge your card for any damage. If you have 3rd party insurance you can then claim back. If they wont hire you a car if you dont take their insurance ask for t...

Re: 2 New Italian Restaurants

So it's not an Italian but a FF outlet that sells pizza and pasta. Oh for some veal cheek, or Ischia style rabbit, Umbrian cured meats, Fritelle y Merluzzo, Mozzarella Cheesecake etc. Shame Italian is synonymous with P&P in many places. There's very little Italian about serving Pasta as a main c...
