Re: PICKING UP PEOPLE AT MALAGA AIRPORT

Why not just park in the other short term car park, the one almost opposite the old T2. The entrance is next to the rental car return entrance. Picking up my daughter yesterday it cost me 1.5e or thereabouts and no hassle. In the past it has cost as little as 60c. About time to police came and towe...

Re: La Cala del Moral Beach front restaurants/bars

The Lamb Tagine in Algeria is lovely. On a summers night its a lovely spot and it also gets the sun in the winter. La Cala property is really undervalued considering how close to Malaga it is. The seafront walk to Rincon is a real gem.

Re: PICKING UP PEOPLE AT MALAGA AIRPORT

if you overstay your 15 minutes you just put your card in on exit. Dont think it takes cash though. There is obviously longer stay car parks. I always park down the road and tell my guests to call me once they are up stairs and then i drive into short stay. It can be busy but I have never over staye...

Re: Old driving licence

I still have my old licence and am also proud of it. I never renewed to photo because they only last so many years then you have to renew at a cost. My old one is valid until I am 75 I think. Twice I have been stopped by the Gaudia in the last 3 years and it was ok both times. I think 3000 Euros sou...

Re: Noche de San Juan

Gerry, La Cala Del Moral is very family orientated. Walk through the tunnels or park at supersol in La Cala and walk across to the beach.

Re: Avoiding the centre of Madrid

Take the M50 and you won’t hit any traffic. I think the signs heading north are Toledo but you don’t go into Toledo.

When I have showered at mother in laws in Manchester it feels like you still have soap on you as the water is so soft. Down south its so hard you need a new kettle every 2 years.

Re: ITV Sticker

One of our old Spanish neighbours has an old Renault 5 and it must have 15 stickers down the side of the window. If its illegal you would think the mot station would remove them or ask the owner too.

Re: Lost Car Keys -

Plenty of mobile key cutters in the UK that visit garages in the same position as you. Do you ever come back to the Uk? May be worth waiting to save a few quid.

Re: Breaking down on the motorway

I know that junction very well and it is quite an unusual junction. I am surprised you didn’t know where you were if your from the area. Most motorway exits are much of a muchness but that one is unusual in its layout.
