      about 2/3 to 3/4 depending variables such as on how long the misses spends on the phone, if the air con / heating is on.

      Its also really useful to use a prepaid card which allows you to transfer money from a UK bank acount in an emergency from the UK in a matter of minutes and still get an excellent exchange rate with minimal charges. For this I use the FairFX card - you can order one online for Euros here: https://www.fairfx.com/ref/d5nzv

      In the end I phoned up the bank and they said that it was free for me to take out Euros. So that's good to get cash out quickly, the thing with using your card abroad is sometimes it does not work for anti-fraud measures. But I thought it best to transfer money into a new Spanish account. My friend who lives here told me about a UK Company he uses to transfer money across. So I've started using them now.

      Well the question is what you really want; Spain's weather its great but although the economy is big it is having quite a lot of issues !!

      We've recently written an article about retiring to Spain. It would be great to hear some real-life stories and opinions from those who have actually moved or retired to Spain! Please feel free to comment on our blog.
