Re: dinero

PP, that's not something I have ever needed to do with the Clarity card so I've no experience to call on, but I think it would be unlikely. As with some other card providers, the T & Cs specifically state that you cannot load the card up into credit, that any funds received in that way will be r...

Re: dinero

Main one is Halifax Clarity Mastercard, which I believe is still available from the Halifax. Also use one of the Barclaycard Platinum Visas (using Visa Europe exchange rates) with the "no extra charges" part of the T & Cs locked in until 2023, but that card is no longer on offer to new...

Re: dinero

Paddy P you could not be more wrong. The rate I got on the purchase was 1.0968 and NO spread, NO additional fees. I have been using this method for the last 3 years + and have never paid anything extra over the daily exchange rate. The absence of any charges above the daily exchange rate is clearly ...

Re: Owner not paying yearly community fee

Our community has been in exactly this situation and it became clear that irrespective of the HPL, it is virtually impossible to prevent an owner or their tenant from using the pool (or any other community facility) if they wish to use it, other than by committing some criminal offence ourselves. Pa...

Re: La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

Just make up any old number and put it in the box. No way for Spain to check, and if they did find it were nonsense, just tell them that was the number given to you by your tenant.

Re: Strange email event

Thanks Enrique - we wondered if it was something like that. It is a Gmail account. However - why would Google allow someone to have the same email address? For instance, if we had mickeymouse@gmail.com - surely they wouldn't let someone else have mickey.mouse@gmail.com? That would mean that we would...

Strange email event

Yesterday evening we found 2 emails in our inbox from Trainline, one confirming a return rail ticket booking Winchester / Waterloo (going today and returning tomorrow) and giving the last four credit card digits of the payment; the other was the actual e-ticket. We had not made the booking and do no...

Re: BEING MADE RESPONSIBLE FOR PLANTER

Patricia, when you say "planters", do you mean a fixed part of the fabric of the building, or separate moveable containers like plant pots ?

If there is a site located near to you, the Amazon Lockers are a really convenient and safe way to collect your stuff. We have used them many times and not had any problems.

Malaga Airport Parking

Has anyone used the Aena Parking website to book and pre pay a few days in the covered parking adjacent to the airport building - not the Long Term/mini bus one ? If so, is there a reserved section so you are guaranteed a spot no matter how busy it may be ?


Thanks,

Re: Tile Cleaning

No ! I did that twice years ago, but never again. If you put a sealer on, it usually has to be removed at some later stage before you can apply a further coat of new seal, and removing the old layer was an absolute pain in the butt. Since then, I just put up with the Vim routine every now and then w...

Re: Tile Cleaning

Same "flooring" pattern as you Costa Kid. Did our kitchen yesterday, bathrooms to be done next week.

Thick kneeling pad, scrubbing brush, good old fashioned Vim powder and lots of elbow grease.

A very big Thank You to all of you! Thanks to the info about Smarty App - I can again download from BBC radio.

I use "smarty dns" but can no longer ( from about 3 or 4 weeks ago ) download radio programmes to my Samsung tablet. "Smarty dns" works fine with the TV apps. I've been in contact with "Smarty dns" but they can't solve the problem. Does anyone have any ideas ? I have th...
