Re: Grass eaten by caterpillars

Dont go to leroy merlin and ask for it.. It needs to be a small town ferreteria / garden type shop. My local one allowed me to buy 15L of the stuff that you shouldnt be able to buy without a licence. I offered the company CIF number etc but he wasnt interested, he just wanted 'cash, no reciept' ... ...

Re: Hire car had a puncture

As far as I know, it is supposed to be the same tyres on an axle, but its not upto the garage to tell you what you can and cant do, they only need to advise you that a. its not as safe, b. its not recomended, and c. it wont pass ITV next time - then if you tell them to go ahead, thats upto you and y...

Re: Power Tool Battery

If its a LIDL one, why not grab a second battery - they sell them seperatly, in several sizes, use one while the other is charging ?

Re: BEST WAY TO SEND PARCEL TO THE UK

Re: Hire car had a puncture

As I said before, the slightest discrepancy in the specification of the tyres will be an instant fail but the degree of nit-picking will be down to the individual tester. ignoring the tyres - I took a customers car, a Mercedes ML, first model, that was fitted with side bars and a tyre rack on the b...

Re: places to hire a reasonable mountain bike (not high end) in Malaga city

Download wallapop, buy one for 20 euro a few streets away.

Abandon it with a sign "llevarme, soy gratis!" When you are done with it, or sell it on wallapop again.

Uber drivers get lynched inside the airport. And an illegal cheaper taxi isnt really a good option either.

Re: taxi rates airport

Airport transfers charge you for waiting and the pick up charge will be too high for such a short journey. Taxi from airport taxi stand is the best bet or take the train to town centre and get a bus from there. Agreed, train then local taxi. Would be cheaper. If you have luggage / old people / kids...

Re: Bedbugs in rented flat - who pays?

I totally agreey jhonie99 ... if its a legal rental. We pay cash, without a contract, and anything that needs to be fixed we moan at the landlady and she normally pays for it.

not everyone has everything "correct". dont forget theres a mountain of black money still in spain.
