Re: Car hire

Most of the rentcos that Zest broker are similar. You can check details for each by clicking on the conditions link on their website. Things to look for are the fuel policy (ie do they charge for a...

Re: PRIINET OPTIONS due to Covid 19

I can't get tapes for my betamax anymore so I'm thinking of upgrading to VHS 🤣

I took another router, exactly the same model as the priinet router, to do as you suggest - substitute mine so I had...

Re: PRIINET OPTIONS due to Covid 19

I was talking specifically about the priinet broadband option, which is a point-to-point WiMax broadband. In order to have separate routers you would need some kind of splitter on the downlink from...

Re: PRIINET OPTIONS due to Covid 19

Personally I wouldn't share with anyone. Once you have invited someone inside your firewall then it doesn't take a lot of knowledge to hack into your devices. As we take PCs and tablets with lots of...

Re: PRIINET OPTIONS due to Covid 19

In practical terms it's not a good idea to share with your neighbours. For example, the strength of you wifi may not be sufficient - we tried to access our wifi when directly next door and the signal...

Re: PRIINET OPTIONS due to Covid 19

We have exactly the same - although we do have a written contract and regular invoices/receipts for our DD payments.

Re: Gibraltar 2

Thanks for the links Fred. V. Interesting articles.
How is Gib coping with Covid - I noticed that the commentators were wearing masks etc.
Also, has anything changed since we left the EU? I know...

Re: What made you smile today? Part III

I'm not sure I would be happy with that as you have no idea if the results have even been seen by a specialist and not just by the booking clerk (sorry to rain on your parade) . Personally I would...

Re: Corona virus

It's not the virus it's the FCO rules which currently state that non essential travel to Spain is forbidden. Hidden in the small print of many (but it seems not all) insurance policies is a list of...

Re: Corona virus

There's nothing very fair about this virus! But the evidence is that the vulnerable and elderly are far far more likely to have a bad outcome. But, keeping everybody locked up to protect the...

Re: Corona virus

I did, in fact, check with my insurer and was told in no uncertain terms that this was the case.

Re: Corona virus

It's actually about the fact that you cant smoke with a mask on - so smokers are not wearing masks.

Re: Corona virus

You make some very good points Jon.
1. Can I just add to your list of insurances - vehicle insurance. We are booked on a ferry to Santander on 1st September. The ferry will still go so we could...

Re: Gossip on the Golf HOTEL ??

Actually that's a very good idea. Not for me I fear but if you could get some interest from the youngsters who seem to get a bit bored then you could be onto a winner.
Not sure who you would need to...

Re: Gossip on the Golf HOTEL ??

Hidrocarburos originally bought the lot and started to try and asset-strip. Island Canela Golf bought the golf campo and the club. Rumour at the time was that they had an option on the hotel, which...

Re: Corona virus

This could be a good thing as long as the number of deaths doesn't increase with it. Since the realisation that care homes and accommodation for the elderly are the most likely places where the...

Re: Corona virus

Politically governments have to be seen to be doing something but a universal lockdown is a blunt instrument and has lots of unwelcome side effects. Stopping all human interactions to stop the virus...

Re: Restaurants

No news and unlikely to be good news. H19H is not in a commercially zoned area of Costa Esuri. Once there was a formal denunciation then the town hall cannot turn a blind eye. It can't open except...
