Go to your local town hall. Take NIE card and passport with you. They will give you the certificate you need. It’s only valid for 6 months which is a right pain in the arse as you then have to renew it.
Many thanks

Re: Buying a second hand car

Depends what you mean by cheap. The rental companies will sell-off cars that are 3 or 4 years old, depending on the mileage, but they do expect value from them and cars are expensive on the island. If you just want an old banger, facebook has a couple of groups on the island that sell items and cars...

Re: Dyson replacement batteries

Have you tried ebay / amazon.es? when I tried to buy on-line I once or twice were told to use the es version. It's Amazon.es that won't allow lithium batteries to be delivered. They can go by road, but not air freight, but few retailers use road transport for single items. Looks like I'll have to p...

Dyson replacement batteries

Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement Dyson battery. They are widely available on Amazon/Ebay but the sellers are prohibited from transporting/posting them to Menorca.

Re: Money transfers

Thanks Kieran Do you know if the Spanish banks charge anything when you make the transfer of funds to e.g. Transferwise? Bill Like everything else, all banks will vary. I'd wait a day or two to see if someone pops up on here with direct experience of transfers out - my own experience is with transf...
