I did my car driving test in Spain (Barcelona) in 2010, and my motorcycle test there in 2012. In 2010, I was taught to always use the outside lane of the roundabout no matter which exit I was using, which is the situation as you describe. In 2012, I was taught to use the outside lane when going less than half a circle, and the inside lane when going more ...

The problem is that, for decades, driving schools taught us drivers this: Whenever two vehicles are inside a roundabout, the right of way ALWAYS belongs to the vehicle in the outer lane. Because of that, most people use the outer lane to turn, because by doing that they (supposedly) keep the right of way and any other cars in the inner lanes have to ...

Buses between cities are easy and generally cheap to do, and there are many buses adapting basically any timeshift you want... however, excepting a few major cities, public transport for moving within the cities (specially if you go to the suburbs or surrounding towns) is generally an issue: taxi cabs are typically very expensive on those cities (it's ...

As a Spanish, living in Spain and long time driver, I'd say the correct way is the one you describe you do in Britain (and it's the one I do when traffic permits)... ... with one caveat: don't know how it is in other places, but at least in Spain, on any collision, if one driver is switching lanes while the other is not, then the switcher driver is taken as ...

While I was practicing to take my driving test, the teacher told me that the Highway Code had changed recently (I'm talking about a 2-3 years...I think) and now the inner lane of the roundabout was to be ignored. Before that the use of the inner lanes were as you mentioned, use outer lanes if you are near to your exit or use inner lane if you are going to ...

I found this article from the National Department of Traffic saying that most of the drivers don't drive correctly through roundabouts. I quote: 75% of the drivers ignore the use of each one of the lanes. 68% of drivers drive in an inadequate lane, affecting traffic fluidity, mainly using the outer lane when they want to exit to the left or perform a U-...

I can't say this is official, but sounds like a good explanation. The following explanation is taken from the Spanish equivalent of the Highway Code. “When there is more than one lane on a roundabout, you will normally travel around the roundabout in the right hand lane – the outside of the roundabout” So what exactly is the inside lane ...

I have checked with Cicar, one of the cheapest and reliable companies in Canary Island, and they told me that you can take the car to other island as long as you return it in the same island where you rented it. You don't have to pay extra money for this but you have to ask them for an authorization. This is what they answered to me about you question. ...

In 2016, a bad online review with a lot of visibility is a big deal. Find a few high traffic websites (tripadvisor, google, facebook) and leave them not an angry rant, but a bad and polite review. Companies are very sensitive about their online reputation and image (and if they're not they won't survive very long) and are much quicker to react than in ...

Spain has a very extensive intercity bus system, in fact they have one of the larger bus systems in Europe. You'll likely find it easy to travel without a car. That said, it depends where you go. There are very different levels of service across regions and specific cities. If you're close to a beach or a city you'll likely find plenty of bus connections, ...

most beaches are closed Beaches are of public access. They are not "closed", you can go as you want. The difference will be that there will be no services like lifeguards, beach bars and restaurants and the like. But most probably, it will be not very cold but cold enough that you will not enjoy taking off your clothes to sunbathe or take a bath. the ...
