Goldcar car hire - 4 replies

Jimmy 15 Posted by Jimmy 15 in Driving, hiring, buying and owning a car in Chiclana de la Frontera on Mon Jun 20, 2022 12:50pm

Hi Alex,

We recently hired a car from Goldcar based in Jerez  airport. Having paid for the hire of a Fiat 500 for 7 days online including extra for insurance we thought it was just a case of picking up key and away to go.

No such luck. At the Goldcar desk  we were told we had to pay 84 euros as a deposit for a full tank of fuel.  All we had to do was sign a document in Spanish to this effect. 

On returning to UK we find out this document has nothing to do with fuel but is in fact additional insurance at a cost of 220 euros with no return.

I would like to know if other people have been duped in the same way.

This experience has put me off travelling to Spain ever again.



Our credit card company have informed us that they will investigate only once we have translated the contract ( signed at the airport)  into English.

Applying for NLV, should i hire an attorney? - 3 replies

Alexnova Posted by Alexnova in General Vejer de la Frontera discussion on Thu Jun 2, 2022 10:33pm

Hi all, its a little later than i had originally planned, but we are now planning to make our move early in 2023 (hopefully January). I am now looking at the process of applying for a non-lucrative visa (NLV). We are a US couple and i have looked at the requirements and forms needed on the web site of the Spanish Consulate in New York. It actually looks pretty simple and that we meet the requirements. Part of me says, just fill out the forms ourselves. Another part of me says hire an expert because things that looks simple often  are not.  Any advice?

Buying a cheap (!) second hand car locally - 3 replies

DC Posted by DC in Driving, hiring, buying and owning a car in Medina-Sidonia on Fri May 27, 2022 11:45am

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?
