Servicaixa send an email confirmation.

The subject starts with.
ServiCaixa - Confirmación compra entradas para General Diurna

The email is very clear and you will know if you have received it.


Maybe you gave the wrong email address by doing a typo.
Look in your spam folder.
Search all your mail for the word ServiCaixa.

If you are not successful try phoning them and they will be able to sort it out.
902 888 001 / 934 923 750 from Spain or +34 934 923 750 from outside Spain.

There is more info about buying tickets here

Secure websites start with https
(note the S)
It is unlikely that servicaixa would ask for credit card details not using https
A padlock should appear.

If the date on your computer is wrong it may make the security certificate look out of date.

What to do in Granada / Advance tickets for the Alhambra

I have gone through the online procedure for Alhambra entry, I think I have tickets, a servicaixa page says so! Am I going to get a confirmation e-mail? The Servicaixa ticket info page asks for credit card number but does not seem to be secure so I am loath to check unless absolutely necessary.
Getting to Granada / Cheap car hire - 12 euros a day
« Last post by Steven Wellington on May 26, 2011, 12:46:18 PM »
My van just broke down and needs a major repair of the gear box.

I was looking through the normal car hire companies such as herz, national, atesa etc and the
price of a 5 day car hire was around 175.

I did a search on this site

and they came up with the price of 59 euros for 5 days at aurigacrown

Info here

The pick up point is at the Palacio de Congresos

59 euros for 5 days is a crazy price.

I have rented a Ford Torneo and there doesn't seem to be a catch.

I don't know how they can do it so cheap.


A problem.
I wanted to extend the rental period by 4 days more.
It is necessary to go back to the office to make the extension.
(a journey of 2 hours ;-( )

Getting around in Granada / Re: 4 euro taxi rip off

I suppose you got off the airport bus and then went to Plaza Nueva.

It's only about 250 metres so as long as you haven't got loads of luggage it is better to walk.

You weren't  ripped off because the minimum fare is 3.71€

Here are the normal prices. (correct in May 2011)

NORMAL TARIFF - TARIFA 1 - 07:00 - 22:00 (Sunday to Thursday) and 07:00 - 21:00 (Friday)
The initial price is 1.40€.
The price for each additional kilometre is 0.76€
The minimum price is 3.71€
Waiting time is 0.32€/minute

Getting around in Granada / 4 euro taxi rip off
« Last post by Buzz on May 19, 2011, 02:58:27 AM »
I was charged nearly 4 euros for a journey between the Cathedral and Plaza Nueva.
I didn't realise that it was so near.

The journey took only 1 minute and the fare was almost 4 euros.

Was I ripped off?
La Herradura / Re: Water sports
« Last post by Steven Wellington on May 13, 2011, 01:49:38 PM »
There is a place on the beach called windsurf La Herradura.

They have lots of stuff such as kayaks, windsurfers, catamarans, small yachts  etc.

For 5 Euros per hour you can rent a kayak and take it for a spin round the bay.

When I was there a group of girls were having windsurfing lessons  on a pivot thing on the beach then later we saw them in the sea having their first attempts at windsurfing.

There is a price list in front of the hut and the boss appears to be a Norwegian man who speaks English.

It looks like a good place to take your son.

We have rented a place in la Herradura in June.

I am trying to find out about activities and things to do on the beach mainly for my son.

Does anyone know the best places?
