Re: Entry into Spain from UK

We have relatives with UK passports going to stay at our place for two weeks' holiday. They said they need proof of address. We are not renting the apartment - they are staying as guests.

Re: Entry into Spain from UK

Just a quick update on the timings at the airport, I departed Malaga last Thursday on a 13.00 flight.

Re: Car hire - big changes coming

This year I drove over in May and will drive back in October. Taxed, mot tested and insured so totally legal. The cost of the journey both ways will be around £1200 but thats much cheaper than hiring as our 5 weeks summer holiday alone would be around £800.

Re: Car hire - big changes coming

Let's see what they do on 1st Aug. Since I hadn't taken out their insurance, he was quite emphatic that I am responsible for the entire cost of the vehicle... That wouldn’t be legal. If they try that people will cancel their card before reporting an issue to hire company and worry about it afterwar...

A very humble man. Legend. I am a Federer fan but he is finished so let's hope Nadal can win Wim...
