Hi Pete
Yes got the Nationwide card , and also the FairFX for Ryanair,Good old Martin Lewis.
Nigel why not open a new section Money Saving !!!
Also on the Nationwide card ,used it the other day to book car hire and fee for using card  was 3.00 by chance swapped over to Barclays connect card,   no charge ,shows you you have to be on the ball.

Used Goldcar during or last visit, flew into El Prat, picked up by Goldcar and taken to offices, prompt service, English speaking. When we returned no fuss drop in the keys,wait for transport to T2 no problems we thought it good value for money. We will try them when we fly into Reus.

We used pepe cars at ElPrat again picked up at airport  in Feb this year, no problems,wife had read a few bad reviews ,charging for cleaning etc.. but as long as you spend a few Euros giving it a wash and vac to get the finca track dust of " yes have read the no unsurfaced road clause" as good as new, they were the cheapest and  got a good new desel C4 for a week for 70.00 inc extra cover will use again.
only thing would to mention is set your GPS so you can get back  to drop of office saves getting lost in the back streets round the airport. Grin

Have always booked through Carjet.co.uk or doyouspain.com and have had good experiences with both over the years.Lately I've booked direct with goldcar and have found that if you book direct you have a better chance of getting the car you booked or a free upgrade, almost always when booking through an agent I've gotten an older,smaller model especially in low season.Anyone else notice this or am I just imagining it ?

Hi Pete
Here is the address for Pepe cars drop off and pick up office taken from my GPS Avinguda De les Garrigues it is very close to Elprat Airport but damm difficult to find without GPS , car is empty when you pick up but petrol station is very close to office, no getting stung with paying them for fuel .we were picked up at the Airport with a minibus with no problem, apparently they are well know to the Spanish, would have no hessitation using them again.
all the best Phil

Hi Pete. Wink regarding Nationwide flexi acount. i have been using mine here, for almost 4 years to draw money out FOC. However since Nov 2010 they have introduced a charge, and i now have to pay 6 pounds each time I withdraw 300 euros. If they are not charging you, I will hot foot it to my English branch of nationwide when I go over next week, and ask for a refund. At the moment i am using my Natiowide credit card to make purchases where i can, and paying t off straight away on line.They are not making a charge for using this in Europe until July. Anyone know of another bank that still allows free withdrawls in Europe.  Smiley Smiley

Yeh, the Nationwide charges are a nuisance but they're still cheaper than other Visa cards I have and much cheaper than the 'Charge in GBP' which keeps being offered at ATMs or card machines in shops.
If anyone knows better then please let us know!!

Some visitors just booked Toyota Aygo from Hertz for 210 a week and were given a BMW 3 series 2,0 deisel instead! Bargain.
