Re: Diving from Sevilla to Algeciras the best way

It is possible to drive anywhere in Spain without using toll roads. Obviously it takes longer buy can be more scenic.

Re: Accident with hired car

Normal practice to sort it when you return the car. We had a bike hit a rental car years ago and knock the wing mirror off, left flapping by the cables so I had to exchange it but rental company said i should have kept it. Must be a Spain thing. If its drivable and usable dont worry about it.

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

Bizarrely you can still book a flight on the 28th on the Ryanair website. I suppose they take your money and return it if the strike goes ahead.

Re: Rosé wine.

Spain now produces loads of Rose wines and they are all pretty dry. They vary enormously in taste as they use many different grape varieties. As a result the vary from a very light pink to a light red. One well know brand is almost a brown pink. What that means is than one person will recommend the...

Re: how to buy a used bike in Spain

Thats quite a journey. I would buy something descent for a journey like that. It is easily doable but if you want to enjoy it dont buy a decathlon 69 euro bike.

Both deals sound cheap. Perhaps Spain is at last getting competitive on its internet prices.
