Re: Ryanair Flights & Entering Passport Information

I thought if you were flying UK to Spain or to the UK and the French were on strike it would only make your flight time longer. The last time we were effected about 10 years ago the flight left Spain and went out over Portugal and bypassed French air space. Things may have changes obviously. I remem...

Car Scrapage scheme

Is the car scrapage scheme still running in Spain? What discount do you get for taking in a car with ITV and running but 25 years old.

Re: Pitch up a tent

Some friends from the UK went on a tour of Spain 3 years on the trot on there Harley Ds and did exactly what you are thinking of. Never had a problem with anyone official. I would say be careful with a stove or fire as this can be dangerous. The cafes and bars are cheap enough so you shouldn’t need ...

Re: Car modification and legalities of it.

Yesterday I had the dubious joy of moving a Spanish friends car from one part of the campo to another. There were a handful of obvious ITV fails amongst a huge list of dubious items. The best was the dash with loose parts holding switches. In fact two main switches were hanging out loose. He said f...

Re: Car modification and legalities of it.

If you fit a tow bar without having it added to the COC it will not pass an itv. Don’t even think of modify a car to your spec.

Re: Buying a property as part of a syndicate

Buy a 2nd home in the uk for rent and the money you earn from that spend on holidaying in Spain. I have never regretted buying in Spain but it has not been a good investment money wise. It has been fantastic for us and our children when they were younger.

Re: Roof-rack & Ladders Question.

The problem with the Guardia is if they say it is wrong you struggle to argue your point. Sometimes I think they make the rules as they go along. I remember a while back a conversation on here about driving with flip flops and also in tunnels with sunglasses on. No actual law against it but it can b...

Re: Customs form in English

You will have to prove it was sent for repair otherwise customs automatically charge duty. Normally there is a customs declaration from the shipper so it can clear customs without an issue. Go to your local post office with your paperwork and they should be able to help you.
