Re: iPlayer radio downloads

A very big Thank You to all of you! Thanks to the info about Smarty App - I can again download from BBC radio. Although I did have the App, I have found that after use I need to Sign Out of the App and then - when opening it again - it gives me the opportunity to sign in to the VPN section (London) ...

iPlayer radio downloads

I use "smarty dns" but can no longer ( from about 3 or 4 weeks ago ) download radio programmes to my Samsung tablet. "Smarty dns" works fine with the TV apps. I've been in contact with "Smarty dns" but they can't solve the problem. Does anyone have any ideas ? I have th...

If English or Irish bars used them they would be out of business within a week.

Re: Residence Registration No Healthcare

PP :- After seeing Free at Last's post, I've checked our own policy carefully and asked friends who I knew to have PH cover here in Spain, with different insurers. None of them have the restrictions you describe as the norm on their policies.

Re: Residence Registration No Healthcare

Hi PP - was surprised to see your comment about maximum payouts on PHI.

Ours has limit of 10.000 euro per person for treatment outside of Spanish territory, but no limits within Spain - is that unusual ?

Sliding patio Doors

Can anyone tell me please what the correct Spanish word is (or words are !), for the roller insert mechanisms which are attached under the bottom of a sliding patio door panel ?

Re: Law re Water Quality in pools

There are a host of regulations concerning communal pools, including water quality, introduced by the Junta de A in 1999. The original can be found on the website below, though I think there have been some revisions since its origin, but how you can check for updates I am not sure. https://www.mijas...

Re: Travel Insurance

www.staysure.co.uk They will provide cover for non uk residents. We used them last December for a trip to New York, and cannot sing their praises loudly enough. My wife was tripped up ( accidently ) in Times Square and broke her nose in the fall. Staysure's response was fantastic, one phone call and...

Re: non payment of community charges.

Ukhozi, in the example you quoted I assume the bank repossessed the property, in which case they would have been liable to the Community for the current year to date fees, plus full annual fees for the prior three years. That would not clear the full six years debt but would be better than a slap in...

Re: Breaking down on the motorway

When you phone them, they send you an SMS to which you reply authorising them to locate you. They do that and pass the info to a grua - in my case I I also received two SMSs from the grua saying firstly he was on his way, and then one to say he would be with us in 3 minutes.

Re: Primera air?

The Primera flight to Malaga yesterday "taxied" into the stationary Ryanair flight awaiting take off for Dublin !!

Maybe, Wicksey, they were not pleased with your comparison of their fleet to Ryanair's - so it's all your fault then.

Re: Ryanair Flights & Entering Passport Information

Wollie, I think you're wrong about boarding passes bearing the passenger's passport number. I'm looking now at 4 passes, 2 Ryanair and 2 EasyJet, recently printed for next week for my wife and I, and none of them have our passport numbers on - even though each airline obviously have those numbers or...

Re: ITV for import No Sticker

The regs must have changed in recent years then PP. I had my last car tested 2 years ago, in the month before it was actually due to be tested, and I was given a window sticker just as normal.

I use the "Amazon Locker" delivery method, as there's a set of lockers at a petrol station just a few km away from us. It works perfectly for us, delivery is fast, and the system is secure. If they have a locker within reasonable distance from you (locations are on the website) I would rec...
