A reader got in touch last night about a service called Flybus.

Looking at their website they specialise in transport to and from a number of Spanish airports including Almería.

The reader, Craig, asked whether I had heard of the service. He also asked could I provide some feedback about it.

I did not know it existed. So I said I would ask anyone who reads this site whether they have used the service here or at any other Spanish airport.

If you have any feedback about Flybus you can comment on this story on the Facebook page associated with the site. Alternatively, if you do not use Facebook, please provide your feedback using the contact form on the site. I will then post your feedback on here.


I have been asked to post this information:

"Family requires 3 bedroom property, either apartment or house, in Almerimar. Reliable tenants that have rented here for 4 years with no problems. They have to move out from their current property because the owners need to sell."


As usual if you are interested in this please get in touch with me via the contact form on the site or via the Facebook page. I will then pass your information on to the estate agents that have asked me to post this.

There is a request for info recently posted on the AlmerimarToday Facebook page. It is about people wanting to play tennis or paddle tennis in the area.

The thread is here.

Here is a quote:

"Hello All,

I am wondering if anyone has access to a tennis court in Almerimar that they would be happy to share with me. I would love to play tennis this winter but am finding all the courts are locked.
Any ideas happily received.
Thank you."

Note that I think that you can see the Facebook page without being a member of Facebook. However if you want to comment you have to be a member of Facebook.

If there are any local non-members of Facebook interested in playing please let me know via the contact form on the site. I will pass on your details to the people who are interested in playing.

Just had a question from a reader called Steve...

Anyone driving to Alicante soon with space in the van/ car? There is a 45kg, 11year old female dog in Almerimar who's owner died a few weeks ago. She ( the dog) has a space in a sanctuary in Alicante, and they have her organised to go forward to the UK to the owners family.
Unfortunately it's proving very difficult to get her to Alicante as all the transport companies we have contacted have no spaces.
We have someone who is happy to pay towards the transport to enable this old lady get to the UK.
Could you help her?"

One of our readers is having problems accessing their Spanish bank account online. Apparently the Banco Popular site now redirects to the Santander site. Following the merger of the two banks.

The person cannot access the Santander site using his credentials for the old Banco Popular site. He is wondering whether other are having the same problem. If yes, please can you get in touch. Particularly if you have managed to resolve this issue.

PS A secondary problem is that the Santander site is not available in English.

UPDATE: Here is a link to the English login page.

"Hi, I think you will remember that we had our bikes nicked recently!

This makes the Turbo Trainer and front wheel mount redundant - and they are brand new and never been out of their delivery box.

The total cost was £60 (say €70).

I don’t expect much for them, but if someone would donate say €30 to a local charity then I would be delighted to off load them."
