Flying During Covid… Spain.

As we all know flying got much more difficult during the COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions. Our nearest airport, Alicante, reports that flights are down by 63% but AENA.ES reports that their Spanish airports passengers are down 72.4% over this crisis period. That’s substantial for an area that relies on flights for business, tourism and foreign investment in property.

Clearly people are being forced not to travel by air right now or have to jump through many hoops if allowed. So what are those hoops?

Alicante Airport

Well the picture changes almost daily across Europe so we can only give general information.

The risk to health and COVID-19 transmission is very high as we write. So the respective governments have little choice to restrict human movement, even though it is harming their economies and frustrating for the people needing to travel.

Thankfully air travel is still one of the safest forms of transports. Modern airlines have protocols and systems to minimise risk, including controlling the air used and generated inside a plane.

Even better, airports and airlines have stepped up to the mark & adapted to minimize the possibility of contagion, But you STILL HAVE TO DO YOUR BIT!

Here are some general guidlines to make your flight safer for you and your fellow passengers. But we STRESS you need to check with the airport, airline and government websites for UP-TO-DATE guidance.

  1. What should I keep in mind before flying?

First, you must make sure that you meet the requirements of health control and entry documentation to the country you are travelling to. Many airlines have restricted hand luggage in the cabin, so check this possibility with your airline company.

Many countries including the UK and Spain are now requiring NEGATIVE COVID TEST in advance of flying with a certificate of proof, usually within a 3-day period before your flight. These you will need to pay for yourself so allow time to book them in.

Check if you have to quarantine on arrival. E.G. The UK is asking travellers into the UK to quarantine in hotels at their own cost (as of Feb 2021). Some people are being turned away from airports or not allowed to fly if the do not have the right documents or tests that they conform.

Check in online, take your boarding pass on your mobile to avoid physical contact.
Go to the airport in plenty of time, since there may be social distance protocols that increase waiting times.
Keep in mind that your companions may not be able to access the airport facilities, except if you need assistance due to reduced mobility, or if the person flying is an unaccompanied minor.
Do not go to the airport if you have symptoms of a cough, fever or breathing difficulties.

So if you have to fly, ensure you know well in advance the requirements for paperwork, tests and hygiene well before you fly.

Also make sure your travel insurance is up-to-date and covers you for as you’d expect.

  1. Has anything changed at the airports?

Yes. Once inside, follow the indications of the airport staff, screens, signs and public address system, since there may be inoperative terminals.
The trays to deposit belongings are disinfected regularly, but try only to touch the essential surfaces and objects.
Continue to maintain the safe distance in the check-in queues, security control, during the baggage claim, restaurants and in front of the ATMs .

  1. During boarding and disembarking

Passenger access lines during boarding have also been reorganized to ensure social distance and you will find more signs, so you have no doubts about where to go.
Use the designated lanes or catwalks for buses or to enter / exit your plane.

  1. Hygiene and safety on board.

The planes are disinfected after each flight, during which it is mandatory to wear the mask – for you and for the crew – and change it every few hours. Upon entering, you will be given a disinfectant wipe and a bag to deposit your personal waste.

Before take off, pay attention to the staff safety demonstration for specific instructions during your flight under the current circumstances.
Most likely, the catering service will present you their menu online through a QR code or with a disposable single-use menu.
And keep in mind that if you buy an extra item on board, you probably can’t pay for it in cash.

Also, remember to use the mask during the entire time you are at the airport as well as during your flight, and to use the hydroalcoholic gel regularly.

#STAYSAFE !!

15 Years in the Hondón Valley @hondonagent

So here we are 15 years on and still loving it!

Pop the Cava! It feels good to be the longest serving and professionally trained international agents in the Hondón area.

So, yes, we tip-toed into the Spanish property market on 1st Feb 2006, 15 years ago when we set up a Google Business account and a couple of web domains. It was a slow burner as we worked out the real estate dynamics in Hondón, which was mainly a new-build foreign buyers market then. But we knew those same people would need to sell a few years on and importantly, that new people would love to come to the Hondón Valley / La Montanosa Urb.

Since 2006, Hondón Villas has gone from strength-to-strength and gained an enviable service reputation in the Hondón Valley. We pride ourselves on giving realistic and honest advice. Clients tell us they love how we care about them and hand-hold them from start to beyond their completed sale.

Foremost, we think our success is based on this commitment to the client. Maureen, a founder of Hondon Villas, has earned corporate awards, gifts and testimonials by the bucket load. She is outwardly friendly, always helpful and above all professional. Service is in her DNA. She actually still loves her real estate job after 30+ years!

Having opened the 1st office in Hondón de las Frailes, and latterly a 2nd in Nieves, we now employ multi-lingual staff to service the international buyers (Dutch, French, Spanish and German). And we are now on our 4th office. Very few agents here even have an open door! (instead are working from a car or bedroom).

Overall, it’s been both a bumpy ride and an exciting adventure, considering our move to Spain was to escape the trappings of an intensive workload in the UK. But we are and can be proud to have run a successful business in a foreign land, win awards and improve year-on-year. We truly believe we have the passion and integrity to be good at this. Above all, the satisfaction of helping people realise their dreams of living in Spain is second to none. It can be a “pinch-yourself” moment.

Keeping it in the family:
As we move into 2021, Kathryn, Maureen’s daughter now works within the property business to take it further and manages the day to day running of the office. Kathryn has and will of course, carry on the good name and service standards you have come to expect.

Above all, the satisfaction of helping people realise their dreams of living in Spain is second to none. It can be a “pinch-yourself” moment.

: Maureen, Founder of Hondon Villas

Now … even with the challenges of Covid and Brexit upon us as we write… we want this business to continue, improve and assist more people and to see what we saw 15 years ago… a better lifestyle… kissed by that glorious 300+ days of sunshine per year. Amazing!

Moving into 2021. Hondon Villas

Thank you to all that support us, help us, recommend us and want to see Hondon thrive. We will continue to work hard for you.

Contact Us: Of course if you want our expertise and local knowledge you can pop into our plaza office, call, email, whatsapp, etc… contact details on our website.

Roscon de Reyes – 3 Kings Parade in Spain

Roscon de Reyes is a traditional sweet cake to celebrate the Spanish Christmas & the 3 Kings parade on 5th Jan, Epiphany.*

At this time of the year all across Spain families like to share a “Roscones de Reyes”, a delicious sweet pastry ring, which is shaped as a crown to welcome the Epiphany of the Three Kings on 5 January. This is one of the oldest traditions in Spain, and can be traced back to the 12th century, if not before.

This is usually the most magical night of the Spanish Christmas calendar, especially for the children. The three Wise Men or Kings visit houses and leave presents for everyone or parade local streets & town centres. They can be spectacular with the Kings giving away sweets and presents to joyful , excited children. Loud music is blaring, the costumes are glitzy and theatrical and people dance. In Madrid, the capital, they televise the parade to the country which usually includes some very special guests and celebrations. It’s a HUGE parade and worth a look. Of course all towns and villages, like the Hondon Valley make the effort too.

*Alas. COVID-19 wil curtail mass gatherings and celebrations in 2020 but we are sure the Spanish will embrace and do what they can.

These Roscones are usually decorated with pretty colourful candied fruit and are often stuffed with a cream or chocolate filling and it is lightly fragranced with “aqua de azahar”, made with the blossom of orange. Look out for the little figurine of Jesus or some similar gift, as it brings luck (if it doesn’t bring the dentist).

The Covid crisis is having a big effect on the bakers of these Roscones, with sales down by one third this year, reflecting the fact that big family gatherings are being avoided at this time. if you can support your local bakers, rather than the supermarkets #lovelocal.

Remember that the 6 January is a public holiday to celebrate Los Reyes and children finally get to open their presents on the evening before.

Have you tried a Roscon? Where is the best place to buy one?

Thank you! A friendly and trusting environment…

Gaziza recommends Hondon Villas Estate Agent (via Facebook).

We spent 6 months searching for property on the Costa Blanca before finding the Hondon Valley. We met Maureen at Hondon Villas Estate Agents and, compared to many other estate agents we had met on our travels, we were immediately impressed by her friendly personality, local knowledge and how perceptive she was of our needs. She guided us through multiple viewings, providing valuable support with patience and understanding and going the extra mile to research and ensure the accuracy of information she provided, including informal consultations with local lawyers.

It was a pleasure to do business with Hondon Villas estate agents in such a friendly and trusting environment and we would recommend them to anyone looking to buy property in the Hondon Valley.

Thank you Gaziza for your glowing review. We truly appreciate this gesture. This year in particularly it means so much and helps us remember why we do this (at times, stressful but rewarding job). We wish you happiness in your next chapter :-)
