Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The eyesore that stood for many years on the crossroads of Avd. Mediteraneo and Avd. Europa is at long last being demolished. The derelict buildings had been boarded up for at least the last10 years and the Town Hall has been insistent that they are demolished as they were both a danger and unsightly. At one point they said if the landlord did not start then the authorities would take over and bill him for the costs.

Car hire "petrol policy"

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

You've booked the "cheap" flight for your well deserved break to Benidorm now for the hire car...... don't get caught out with the online quoted price! This is very rarely the final amount you pay, which you will discover upon collection at the airport. My main gripe is the petrol sting. You collect the car, with a tank full of petrol but the companies vary on how you return it back.

Building in the Old Town- Benidorm

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The Old Town is located between the Levante and Poniente beaches and a far cry from the "British Square" and what people associate when they hear the word "Benidorm". Its not all "2 for 1 Happy Hour" and "All Day Breakfast" - although if that's what you want there is plenty to be had.The Old Town is like a step back in time - full of narrow cobbled streets adorned with white-washed houses and an abundance of tapas bars, boutiques and restaurants.

Now that the sun is shining everyone feels better - whether you are on holiday or are lucky enough to live here the sun puts everyone in "holiday mode"... unfortunately it appears to have the same effect on our brains! You become more relaxed and carefree and this is when you are more likely to fall prey to becoming a victim of theft.

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

With it coming up to the peak holiday season in Benidorm, you need to be aware of potential scams that you as holiday makers may be subjected to. Residents are all to aware of these and also fall victim but I thought it best to forewarned ! When hiring cars it is only too obvious that you are on holiday. It was once proposed that car hire companies remove their stickers from cars identifying them as so, but this has obviously not happened.

Buying medicine in Spain

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Inactive

Most people need to go to a chemist at some point during their stay in Spain.  Spanish chemists differ to those in the UK, they are qualified similar to your local GP and  this saves time by not having to go and find a doctor if it is a minor ailment. However, if you do need to see a doctor make sure that you have your EHIC - the blue health card with you when you go to the Centro de Salud (Health Centre) which you will find in every town.

If you fancy a change from Benidorm's busy Levante or Poniente beaches why not try Albir beach ... just a stones throw away - even the No 10 bus goes there from Benidorm. Albir beach is wedged between Benidorm and Altea and the beach is ap. 600 metres long... from here you can see as far as Calpe - the "Penon de Ifach" or Rock of Calpe - a reference to the Rock of Gibralter can be clearly seen.

Who watched the last series of ITV's "Benidorm" where two of the characters were arrested by the local police for "frolicing" on the beach ? Well I certainly laughed at the far fetched scene as I imagined most other viewers did ... Benidorm is certainly not Dubai!!!! How wrong can you be ...... then  following a post on twitter I decided to investigate the matter.

Easyjet's new pricing structure.

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Easyjet have launched to much fanfare a "new" concept to ticketing ..... the "Flexi Fare" !!!!! Now I remember some 20 years ago that British Airways use to have fully flexible fares so Im not too sure which smart ass thought it was a new idea. Back in those days you even use to get a FREE Daily Mail newspaper, sandwich, drinks - including alcoholic ones and you didn't have to pay extra for baggage!

Located in the Old Town
