imagesFor over 5 years, returns on savings and investments have been stuck around 1 to 3% AER. This is great news for mortgage holders but terrible for savers and investors whose lifestyles have been dramatically affected by low returns. This situation looks unlikely to change significantly for at least another 5 years, maybe longer.

Now the UK has chosen to leave the EU, we are being faced with more uncertainty and possible hardship, especially if we are vulnerable to exchange rate fluctuations. The result is that many Expats in Spain, who rely on their pensions, savings and investments are not only living on a reduced income but often actually “dipping in” to their savings instead of enjoying the returns on those savings they always expected.


Show your Love by donating Food this Valentine's

specFebruary is the month of love, but rather than just treating that special someone, optical chain Specsavers Opticas are asking people to show their love for the most disadvantaged in their community by making a small food donation this month. They are collecting non-perishable food for the Spanish Federation of Food Banks in all 8 of their stores on the Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca and Mallorca throughout the month and hope residents will get behind the campaign.

The Spanish Federation of Food Banks is a non- profit organisation which is fighting against hunger and waste and brings together 56 food banks throughout Spain. Each day they give out 419,000 kilos of food to the very needy members of society and have seen a massive increase in demand in recent years. In order to meet that need, they require donations from individuals, organisations and companies and Specsavers Opticas has taken up the challenge to make a difference this February.

From the 1 st to the 28 th of February, anyone can drop off their food at their local store during opening hours. At the end of the month it will be donated to Alicante Food Bank, for them to distribute in the community via partnerships with local charitable organisations. The Alicante Food Bank would particularly appreciate donations of oil, sugar, drinking chocolate and milk, although any donation is of course welcome.

There are Specsavers Opticas stores in Javea, Calpe, Benidorm, Torrevieja and Guardamar on the Costa Blanca. To find your nearest Specsavers Opticas store visit

Passport Euro
Advice for British nationals travelling and living in Europe, following the result of the EU Referendum
This from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office:
'The British people voted on 23 June 2016 to leave the European Union (EU). The government will negotiate new arrangements with the EU including on issues affecting British nationals living and travelling abroad.
The negotiations to leave the EU may take up to 2 years or more. The government has made clear that we want the legal rights of British nationals living in European countries, as well as EU nationals in the UK, to be properly protected.
In the interim there will be no immediate changes. During the period of the negotiations, the UK remains a full member, entitled to all the benefits and obligations of membership of the EU.'
