Re: New restrictions extended??

The health guidance says 1 - 14 days, but typically 4 - 5 days.

Re: Pool cleaning

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

Make sure you push for the hidden discounts such as free 4 year servicing and extended warranty which often apply to finance deals. You might even get free insurance! They are desperate to sell new cars at the moment. Unlike in the UK the dealers get low margins and have little room to offer discoun...

Re: New restrictions extended??

There has been huge confusion over this as two different organisations are setting the rules. Over Easter central government applied the rules about meetings in private houses which were limited to people living there. This over rode the local rules which allowed up to 4 people to meet inside. The o...

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

Because it is. They basically give a real discount if you take the finance option. The dealers are controlled by the manufacturers finance companies and that is the way they do it in Spain. I have bought two new cars in the past 7 years and the finance deals were much better than paying in full. Why...

That was the point I made. It is the 2021 Renta campaign which covers the Renta 2020 declaration. I think they deliberately make it confusing.

Re: Renta 2020

No, the current campaign is Renta 2021. This covers the 2020 Renta declaration. The confusion is that someone changed the thread title on some of the posts. Both are technically correct. Regarding using a digital certificate, it’s just as easy to create a reference number which does not need either ...

Re: Samsung tv issue

Call the Samsung authorised service agent to look at it. It is usually a backlight problem. A friend had a similar problem out of warranty and Samsung reimbursed the price of a new TV.

I love Mentón. When we spent 5 years sailing around the Med 20 years ago, we stopped there. Loved it. A mixture of France and Italy..

Off topic so I will shut up.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

You're right Katy - I fell into the same trap, just answering an off topic post!

I am not going to move them all - it takes too long. So from now on lets stick to requirements to travel to and from the UK to Spain.
We have so many Covid threads its difficult to keep track.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

I think the under 65 group you referred to still had to be key workers. It's a small group as most people in that group have retired so no longer qualify. When I had my jab this week it was Pfizer whereas a couple of weeks before, my wife had Moderna. I was surprised how many no shows there were whe...

Its been 12 weeks in Andalucia from the start. I doubt that, apart from Mark, many members have had the AZ jab.

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

Can we please stick to the subject which is Covid Vaccinations SPAIN.

It is getting confusing, particularly about the interval between vaccines as the situation in the UK is wildly different to that in Spain.

In Spain it is 4 weeks for Moderna and 3 weeks for Pfizer.

Re: Does greater bandwidth give coverage further from router?

A normal straight through cable. The software for the TP-Link makes it very easy to reconfigure it from an extender to an access point.

Re: Pool cleaning

Only time will tell, but judging by the number of large pool equipment suppliers who get Maytronic to manufacture bespoke versions, I would imagine that they are pretty reliable.

Pool cleaning

It’s that time of year again when the pool is full of leaves and dust, even if you have a cover on it (somehow the rubbish still finds its way in). We have always had major problems in the winter as the pool is 60m2 and an irregular kidney shape which pretty much rules out a sensibly priced winter c...

Non EU nationals are bound by the Schengen rules which are much more difficult to ignore, although how difficult it will be for Brits remains to be seen.

Not correct. Nobody can stay more than 90 days without registering. It's just that it has never been enforced.

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

So which vaccine was that?

The Pfizer and Moderna are 4 weeks for the second jab.

Sid

EDIT. Pfizer is 3 weeks apart
