 COVID-19 VIRUS HOTLINE: Information hotline for those who suspect they may have the coronavirus. Anyone experiencing symptoms should stay at home and dial 900 400 061 or 955 545 060 – and only call 112 in an emergency.


What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra! Tell your favourite establishments to post on DigameXtra to get next-day publicity!


Bands & Acts: Please submit your gig promos. Your music is your business, you need to get as much exposure as possible, don’t rely on venues to promote you! Most FB posts by venues only have a few likes, if any at all, so obviously are not reaching many people. DigameXtra sends out over 4290  4335 email issues everyday to subscribers, and the website gets another 800 visits per day. That is way better exposure than you are getting in any FB posts!!! Entertainers get to post their shows for free as long as they are subscribed to this newsletter. What are you waiting for?

Wanted: Long Term Rental For DigameXtra’s Editor-  I want to find a new home by December 20th, and to move in by January 20th.
-Torrox to Rincon de la Victoria, on the coast, not inland villages.
-Looking for a 1 bedroom flat or small casita. No studios please. No-pet policy is ok.
-Must have reliable wifi pre-installed (min. 30Mb/s).
-Must have a supermarket within walking distance.
-Unfurnished is OK, but must have a basic kitchen and a washer. I don’t mind if it’s a bit rough or needs some paint or minor repairs- DigameXtra Sponsor SPW Construction has generously offered to donate those services as needed. 
-I can pay up to €300/month, plus power, water & wifi bills.
-I prefer to pay all rent and bills in a single cash payment to the owner/manager once a month.
-My intention is for a 2 to 3 year occupancy. Longer if it suits me well.
ANTI-SQUAT- The Dutch solution for vacant properties.
-If you have an empty property you are concerned may get squatted, even if it is larger than I am looking for, why not rent it to me and know your property is secure? Even if it is worth more, and I only pay €300/mo rent, it’s some income, and the sense of security knowing someone is there looking after things will make up the difference! You can’t put a price on peace of mind!

The price of electricity rises again to more than 160 euros per megawatt hour: {Translation, summary}
-The average daily price of electricity on the wholesale market will rise by 27.51% this Monday, standing at 167.67 euros per megawatt hour. Thus, the upward trend returns after two days of declines.
-In any case, the price of electricity continues, after eleven consecutive days, below 200 euros, after exceeding this threshold for 15 consecutive days in October, according to OMIE data.
-Regardless of this, electricity prices are still at very high levels compared to the rest of the historical series. Specifically, just a year ago it was quoted at 34.64 euros/MWh, so the increase in price over the last year is 383.98%, i.e. almost five times more expensive.
-However, the price this Monday, 8 November will be almost twice as expensive as just a week ago, when the price of electricity stood at 91.2 euros/MWh.
-According to OMIE data, the highest price this Monday will be between 20.00 and 21.00 hours, when it will reach 203.71 euros/MWh, while the lowest will be between 04.00 and 05.00 hours, at 139.36 euros/MWh.
-The average price at the end of October stood at 200.06 euros/MWh, 44 euros above the average for September (156.14 euros/MWh), making it the most expensive month in history so far.

Brits Travelling to EU Could Face Long Border Queues From Next Year Due to Upcoming Biometric Checks: United Kingdom nationals travelling to Europe have been recently warned that sometime next year, they will start facing long queues at the borders due to the biometric checks that the European Union intends to impose soon.
The European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) and the Entry-Exit System (EES) are set to become effective in mid-2022. The first is a document that third country citizens under the EU visa-free regime, including here UK nationals, will have to obtain before travelling to the Schengen Area.
The second, on the other hand, is an automated IT system for registering travellers from third countries, both short-stay visa holders and visa-exempt travellers, each time they cross an EU external border.
UK transport bosses fear that Brits will face longer waiting times, in particular, when using the ferry ports and the Channel Tunnel. Dover Harbour Board Tim Reardon said that not only the waiting lines would be longer, but travellers would also have to step out of the vehicles in order to complete the controls.
