Re: Anazon Prime deliveries

If you are going to quote me then print the full quote '''Having said all that anything that is available on Amazon Prime is usually free delivery if your order is over 29 EUR. So unless you need to have multiple low value items delivered quickly and regularly then Prime is pretty pointless "' ...

Re: Anazon Prime deliveries

Many of the posts above are confusing matters re amazon delivery charge If you order on Amazon and the seller is from Amazon Marketplace (I.e. a third party who just markets on Amazon) then they are free to set whatever charge they want and often deliver for free. Hence products with low value may h...

Re: Anazon Prime deliveries

Other alternative for those living in the campo is to put your delivery address as a place in the nearest town that knows you and has decent opening hours and is open all day as the couriers can turn up anytime between 8am and 8pm

Re: Used Car Price Guide

AUTOSCOUT24.ES When you look for a car there is what is suggests is the fair value for the car and shows whether a given car for sale is under or over valued. Although this value takes no account of the condition of the car or any extras it may have. On a side note insurance on two of my cars was up...

Re: Digital Covid Travel Certificate

The dumb thing is the staff in the restaurants can be unvaccinated but not the customers because the vaccine has not been rolled out to the youngest people yet in some countries In many regions of Spain it is being offered to the 18-30 age group, which is also the group with the most infections. In...

Re: Anazon Prime deliveries

As others have said Amazon Prime can be delivered by Amazon themselves or by a third party courier. The delivery depends on the courier and your area. Example in Madrid DHL is great, at my house in Andalucia it depends on who the driver is and the day of the week. DPD/SEUR are great in both location...

Do you have any source data for this assertion? Can you clarify where and when you are referring to?

Re: Travel Covid requirements

Just wondering if there is precious little point in the vaccines then what is responsible for the fall in deaths in all the countries with a successful vaccine programme? Also why is there still ,large amounts of deaths in unvaccinated countries with similar age profiles? Is it just a coincidence?

Re: Digital Covid Travel Certificate

Seems a repeat of last year, lock down then loosen up and cases surge. Demonstrates that lockdowns don’t work. Let’s blame the Brits though. If the objective is to save lives then lockdowns (and restrictions) do work,...it is the opening up (and loosening up) that causes the problems. That is when ...

Re: Free Motorbike Parkiing Malaga Airport

I drive Madrid to the coast and return maybe 20 times per year in a normal year. Time your run and Madrid traffic is no issue. On the way there just avoid hitting Madrid between 1pm and 6pm on a Friday after 5pm on a Thursday and the rest is fine. Entering Madrid you are against the traffic so rare ...
