Re: Transfer to UK NCB

Thanks for info. I am with Linea Direct here and telephoned Direct Line in UK and they said that they would not accept spanish NCB , I then tried Aviva and they will accept it so asked for quote and for roughly the same cover and excess the premium was about the same as I am paying here.

Re: BT Internet

Thanks for all the comments much appreciated, I think I will be sticking, I can not get fibre where I live and all Movistar offers are based on that so I will have to wait for another one to come around....Better the devil, as they say !!!

To get travel cover with Aviva you must have been resident in UK for at least six months , be registered with UK GP and be liable to pay tax in UK ,, the quote I received was very competative but if you are a UK resident there are so many options, all the banks offer a very good policy, dont take a ...

Re: speeding ticket

If you have someone tailgating you simply turn on your sidelights, which look like brakelights, and accelerate away, they will soon get fed up with that and drop back.

Re: The Crisis..Some Positive Points.

I notice that now shop assistants and staff always greet you with a smile and are very polite, check outs only have a few people waiting , I guess they now realise that it is important to keep the customer happy, after all we do pay their wages.
