Hi All, hope everyone is ok?
Myself and my husband have a villa booked for Playa Blanca for the last 2 weeks in August this year. We booked it last March before Covid hit us all, so i'm praying it goes ahead. We have both had our first dose of the vaccine and second dose due in June, so should a 'vaccine passport' be required, we will have it.
As I have everything crossed that it will go ahead, I am starting to plan little bits of our trip as this will be our first time ever renting a villa. We have booked our car hire with Autoreisen, a Citreon C3 which should be plenty big enough for the 2 of us and our luggage.
I read a tip on here that people suggested that one of us get the luggage and the other go and collect the car as the queues are usually big. I liked this tip and wondered if there were any more people could suggest for people renting villas? Such as, are there any things we should bring with us? If we rent a lodge/cottage in the UK I usually take a cooler bag and some tupperware for picnics, is it worth taking such things in my case? Is there anything we need to buy when we arrive?
My husband loves a BBQ and the villa has a 'Canarian' BBQ, will the villa usually provide firelighters etc or should we get these from the supermarket when we arrive?
Do people usually do a big shop when they arrive or go shopping every other day or so for items they need?
Any advice and tips you could suggest would be great as we build up an idea of what to expect should our holiday go ahead (Crosses everything) x
