Re: Vaccine war with EU

I am I'm seriously starting to think about the risk balance between getting it and not. The problem is what does the future hold for those who dont have it for whatever reason I certainly hope your decision won't be based on opinions by certain people on this website. Nope. Just the figures and bal...

Re: Vaccine war with EU

None of this seems to be going away despite the constant propaganda from the adverse effect deniers: You see again, bad use of the English language which in your head helps to support your flimsy arguments. Give me evidence that today, at this moment in time, anybody denies that there can be advers...

Re: Vaccine war with EU

You do seem to know an inordinate amount of people :wink: Yes, strange that isn't it? I put it down to being one of the quirks of living in a large cosmopolitan area like Bilbao and having a business which deals with the public. Many of my first students who started with me while in their teens are...

Re: Vaccine war with EU

Since all this started over a year ago I do not know of a single person who really had covid and certainly no-one who died from it. So what!? That doesn't mean anything. and sounds like you are denying the virus exists again. I know plenty including some who have it at the moment. I also know quite...

Re: Travel Covid requirements

A bit of a dumbo to miss his C1 exam because of that! (I presume your talking funcionario c1). He might have to wait some time for the next one. Yes, life is carrying on as normal for most spaniards. They just adapt and play the game, something Brits are not very good at. A good example was Easter....

Re: Vaccine war with EU

Y If each EU country had handled the vaccine ordering none of this farce will have happened. Sid I don't see how that would have prevented the delays caused by either production problems (from just about all the manufacturers) or concerns about serious albeit rare side effects, though. I agree, The...

Re: Travel Covid requirements

In Spain movement has never been limited to essential workers except during the first lockdown .. It is probably recommended to work remotely but it isn't necessary. One of my students plays in one of the national handball league and had to travel to Barcelona to play over Easter. He also was suppos...

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

Obviously, it's not 0 per cent in the way we think of it normally. They charge interest but the buyer has to do the sums but only taking into account the discount offered for finance. It might well be that it ends up being 2 per cent instead of 9 per cent but both my cases it was slightly under the ...

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

Including me as I have bought various new cars in my time in Spain and for the first two it was better not to take out finance. However, the situation was different when I bought a car just over 4 years ago and the one I bought last summer.

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

I'm sorry you are wrong in this case. I have negotiated other discounts but it is impossible to get the quite high discount for paying on finance by paying cash. Since our last debate, I have bought another car and played hard ball but the high discount and free five year servicing were totally depe...

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

With finance, they deliberately hide the real price you're paying for the vehicle and more or less just tell you the monthly payments. Also, they'll have added on a whole load of extras (both car and finance) that you didn't ask for and don't want. We even prefer to get a loan from bank rather than...

Re: Does greater bandwidth give coverage further from router?

You can change the keyboard to British but you need to remember what each key does. I tend to use UK ones more at home but Spanish at work and to be quite honest there isn’t much difference The @ is the most awkward. My main work PC using Windows 7 and to be quite honest I can’t even remember if it ...

Re: Masks on the beach

Getting back to the OP, it seems that the government has back tracked on the mask while sun bathing rule and the situation will be the same as last year which wasn’t t such a great imposition. It’s a big difference having to keep the mask on while you are moving around to actually lying on the beach...

Re: Travel Covid requirements

Even in the same Province or Region, It depends where you live. It might be the case that certain municipals will have to impose restrictions but they allow life to carry on. You just hang out close to where you live. Not like the UK where everything closed. No pubs no shops no schools..... but in b...

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

Try to get some more discount. Tell them you are also looking at another car and they might drop it another 200-400 Euros. then when they give you it, tell them you are on a budget and try for another 200 Euros. They have always dropped a little from the original offer because I think they have a li...
