I am in the process of gradually retiring as a Prof in the UK and spending more time M-S. Is there any chance of getting a cheap 2nd hand Spanish registered cars to keep at the house, as hire car and taxi prices are getting so expensive? Does anyone have an old "banger" that they would like to get rid of? Or would anyone like to see if it is feasible to form a car club where we take it in turns to pick up from airports?

Running a car is getting more and more expensive. Renting a car, if you are retiring is tricky as there is an age limit.

 A second hand car is tricky, you can get a brilliant buy or a real dud. Perhaps you know about enough about cars to repair them.

Then although in the end taxis are expensive. They work out cheaper if you live in a town and can walk everywhere. if you are going to live in the countryside that is another issue. You don't mention where you are going to live but Seville, Jerez and Gibraltar are brilliant airports with good connections to Costa de la Luz by bus.

Good luck!

Yes ... please tell me more about it.

I just need a small reliable runner.
