Re: Peak, Off-peak times

Thanks for your replies. I had read somewhere that when calling 902 numbers - which I believe can be expensive - that there were different rates applicable during peak and off-peak times but the article didn't say what these timebands are. I think at home in the UK peak would be 8:00 am to 8:00pm bu...

Re: Automatic switch?

If you search for "master/slave extension lead" on Ebay/Amazon I think you should find something that does what you want.

Re: Bankers draft ( cheque bancario ) Commission

My experience with bankers drafts was when I was buying our apartment. I was told by my UK Bank that a bankers draft was as "good as cash". When I presented it in Spain they would not accept it under any circumstances even though it was in Euros. The reason being that it took several days to clear. ...

I'm sure BeachComber will be along in a minute but in the meantime could she be referring to the "anagrama" that he referred to in his notes "Etiquetas (self-adhesive labels) will not be required as the bar code is generated by the program, however, the 'anagrama' is not reproduced.

What's a correador? Can't find any translation for the term and Google doesn't turn up anything useful.

Re: Pensioners prescriptions

Habitually means that you live in Spain more than you do in any other place. It's that simple. If you have a place in Spain and a place in the UK and spend the majority of your time in the UK then that is your habitual residence. If you spend most of the time in the UK then you are not entitled to ...

The British Embassy website has a page about registering on the Padron http://ukinspain.fco.gov.uk/en/help-for ... ain/padron It says "It is obligatory by Spanish law to register on the padrón at the Town Hall where you habitually reside," So it depends on the definition of "habitually".
