Am trying to find a way of getting to San Javier airport and back (same day), fairly easily. Does anyone know of a good way to do this? Am looking at bus services and it is not looking promising. How much do taxi´s cost? Is there anyone who could help for a fee?
I'm looking to install Sat Nav in my car but I'm not sure which company to go with. I have looked at Tom Tom, Garmin or even Nokia - they all claim to have detailed maps but from my UK experience some companies are more up to date with new roads than others. Can anyone recommend one or tell me of their experiences.
I have heard once you become resident you should register your uk driving licence with Trafico. Is this true? Can anyone provide more info and if so how the procedure goes.

I will be buying a second hand car soon but how much is the road tax and how is it graded - is it by engine size or pollution levels? If I but privately what other costs will I have to pay apart from road tax and car insurance - who pays for re-registering the car and how much does it cost?
Can you tell me if it is easy to drive a British car in Spain. Is the insurance high and are there many problems with it. People have told me that toll barriers and car park barriers cause problems as the driver is on the wrong side for payment. I don't want to sell my car but is it worth bringing over
At the moment our car British car is on UK insurance and we now want to register it here in Spain. It has 8 months left on the MOT. The question is can we register it with the English MOT or do we have to go through the a Spanish equivalent before we can register?
I've just read an article about a new police vehicle (Multacar) that has been introduced in Murcia City and they have issued 584 traffic fines in seven days. Seems the vehicle has cameras mounted on it that for example catch people double parking or using bus lanes and they issue fines of up to 150 Euros and they don't need to actually stop you or leave a ticket on the car - be careful out there.
A word of warning. I have just ready that the law enforcement in the Murcia region and continuing their intensive campaign until 15th of this month. This year they are concentrating on the hours between 2pm and 6pm. So no more afternoon tipples if you are driving, its a serious offence, fines from €300 plus points off your licence and possible prison sentences.
Does anyone know of any classic bike clubs in the area? We need the information to help register the bike as an historic vehicle. Contact details are needed. Any info especially from someone who has gone through the process of re-registering their bike would be appreciated. JAC
The Murcia regional government are giving subsidies for people buying eco friendly motorcycles. They are powered by a mixture of electricity and petrol. You can get upto 15% off the price. How you apply is a different matter, I suppose the dealers would or should know about it. You have until the end of September to request the subsidy.
