Re: Travel Covid requirements

Just had a message to say that a couple we know who were due to sail from Santander yesterday are now stuck there after he tested positive.
Both have had 2 doses of vaccine and she tested negative. :crazy:

Re: No tourists until after summer

We are in a similar situation to zanuck. We are travelling by ferry from Santander next month and looking around places to get tests done. I found this https://travelcovidtestcenter.com/ You can book a test online at Seville or Malaga airports. The trouble is that they require a flight number when f...

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

The details of the vaccinations appear on the Click Salud site within 24 hours and can be downloaded if you have a digital certificate. Sid Just wondering how people like us, ie only having private health care, no sip number or cards will be able to obtain proof? We had our 1st jabs after asking to...

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

Just a quick question to those of you who have had a jab. Did you have to present your health card? The reason I ask is that as we only have private health cover we registered at our health just for the vaccs but were not given any temp sip cards. We both received a phone call this morning with appo...

Re: New restrictions extended??

It was obvious the figures were going to shoot up after Easter. You only had to see the packed together queues on tv outside the churches, thousands of people clamouring to get a look at the plaster dolls. They may as well have let them hold the parades. There was even the smarmy, smiling Juanra Mor...

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

It's easy enough to work out. How much a month x How many years?
I'll guarantee the final amount will be more than €15,500. The dealer will always push for the finance option as he will receive a nice bung in commission from the finance company.

Re: Vaccinations if not on Health System

Yes private insurance cards, we are not entitled to free public health cover.
Not sure whether she just needed proof that we would not be requiring any other medical treatment, or they are hoping to claim back the cost of the vaccinations?

Re: CAR ITV - Whats going on??

My ITV ran out on 3rd Feb, I booked the earliest appointment available back in December which was 18th March. All sorted yesterday and I was surprised to note that the expiry date is now March 2023, giving me an extra month. One thing to note is that they only take payment by card, cash is no longer...

Re: Satellite/Android Hybrid Receiver

I can say for certain that you are not picking up English freesat chans from Astra at 19.2 east, they are not on there. You say you have done a re-scan and are receiving some foreign chans? Post a list of a few of them with their frequency and I will tell you which satellite you are receiving them f...

Re: Retirement age Spain

I read an article yesterday that said the retirement age in Spain was due to be raised to 67 from 2027. But because of the current crisis this was likely be brought forward to next year. The article also pointed out that for every 5 euros collected in taxes in Spain, 2 euros went on pensions! Sorry ...
