cons and sharp practice keep coming!
It seems that every year we have to warn visitors to watch out
for sharp practices when they book their car-hire and 2016 is
no exception. This year, when you spot apparently bargain basement
headline prices (as low as 3 for a week's rental) don't
forget there will be a sting in the tail - when you pick the
car up you will be told that the full insurance which the online
broker said was included in the price is far from full or included
and you will be faced with a hard sell of insurance at the car
rental company's desk (up to 150 for a week) and you may
get fleeced on a number of other scores as well - 1000
deposits which won't be refunded for months, if at all, if you
don't take the rental company's insurance offer and other clever
ideas like a refuelling charge of 30 or 40, an admin
fee for the rental and, of course, a very expensive tank of
petrol or diesel - often 50% higher for a tankful than petrol
stations charge and, generally, no refund for unused fuel or
even if there is one, the refund is subject to yet another admin
fee so there is unlikely to be anything left to refund. So an
apparent superbargain is, in reality, a weekly rental costing
several hundred euros. There seems to be no way to avoid these
scams if you want to rent a car, but, a useful tip - an annual
car-hire excess policy is available from several UK insurers
for around £40 and of course there are alternatives to
car rental, especially public transport - a perfectly feasible
option from Almeria and even Alicante airports and there are
now more airport shuttles at around 15 per person each
way (Almeria) and 30 (Alicante).

the Kite Flyer hits the beach
Yorkshireman Ray and his wife Sheila have
journeyed all round Europe and well beyond to fly their kites
at kite festivals and just for fun. On the beach at Vera
Playa i they were able to kill two birds with one stone by combining
their love of naturism with their passion for flying kites.
At home in Yorkshire, Ray and Sheila have more than 200 kites,
many of them constructed by Ray. Not needing much luggage space
for clothes for a holiday at Vera Playa, they were able to bring
a few of their kites on holiday with them to fly on the naturist
beach at Vera Playa.
best naturist destination
If it's a naturist holiday you're looking for then there's
nowhere better than Vera Playa with its long, long sandy beach
and open, relaxed atmosphere. There's a wide variety of holiday
options ranging from self-catering holiday apartments varying
between basic and luxury standard to a 4 star hotel within the
naturist zone - or you can stay elsewhere in the area and come
to use the naturist beach as and when it suits you. when you
have visited Vera Playa for the first time you are quite likely
to want to do so time and time again - or even to move lock,
stock and barrel to live here - there's plenty of property purchase
options available and there has never been a better time to
buy property in and around Vera Playa.

leave or not to leave? That is the question. We are, of course,
talking about the BREXIT Referendum.
Commentators seem to be united in saying that nervousness about
the outcome of the UK Referendum is putting the brakes on expats
and especially Brits committing to property purchases at the
The principal concern seems to be worries that free access to
the Spanish healthcare system could disappear or become expensive
if the UK was to leave the EU - an understandable concern of
older people intending to live full time in Spain.
Once the Referendum is out of the way the generally improving
property scene should resume if the UK votes to stay in.
Meanwhile there are undoubtedly bargains to be had so if you
are a Contrarian (said to be the most successful stance for
any investor) the next couple of months could be your chance.
The Spanish property market has already passed its nadir and
prices have been on the up and are very likely to continue in
that direction after the BREXIT uncertainty has passed.
