Madrid Airport car hire

Hello, as flights to Madrid are much cheaper than those to Malaga, we are thinking of flying into Madrid next summer then driving down to the coast. Can anyone recommend a car hire company at the airport please? Or any to avoid. We would need a second driver on the policy and would be looking at aro...

To instal aluminium guttering or not?

Advice please. We are considering installing guttering. What are people's views on guttering? Is it hard to maintain? We won't be able to reach some of it. We only come out for holidays.
We need to let the installer know tomorrow.
I assume he'll need permission from the town hall?
Many thanks.

Car hire - Granada Airport

Hello
I hope everyone has had a pleasant Christmas and all the best for the new year.
Due to the inclement weather, my thoughts have turned to trips to the sun! We are thinking about trying easyJet's Manchester to Granada route and would appreciate recommendations for car hire please.
Many thanks.

Van hire from Malaga Airport

Hello, is anyone able to recommend self-drive van hire from Malaga Airport or close by please? Looking to move some furniture so a Transit or Doblo/Berlingo style would be good.

Summer ferry crossings from UK to northern Spain

As we have enjoyed our road trip from the UK to southern Spain this year, we thought we'd explore the Portsmouth/Plymouth to northern Spain ferry options for next summer. We have one very bad sailor and three fairly bad ones in our party, but we are hoping to dose up on travel sickness pills if nece...

Bank repossession - different prices on websites

Hello Has anyone experienced this or can anyone offer advice please? I know that often houses are on different websites at different prices. We viewed a bank repossession recently and weren't able to make an offer that day. When we did make an offer within a few days, the price had gone up by 19,000...

Estate agents

Hello
I have posted this in Moving to Andalucia too - please delete if you think it should just be in this one.


Does anyone have any experience of using more than one estate agent to sell your Spanish property? Any hints and tips gratefully received.
Many thanks.
