Houses are not cheap, I agree, but they are not in the UK either....

So if the above is not a bargain compared to Uk then obviously I know nothing
Hadn't considered any of the above. Not bothered about fags or booze. Diesel is only cheap for as much as you can get in the tank. Andorra used to be cheap for luxury goods, electrical, cameras etc, not any more.

I got a good deal on an MTB at Motocard plus my wife was happy with what she saved buying an ipad and iphone.Here is the bike in Andorra at our favourite wild spot.And we bought Bombay Saphire plus Grey Goose.The campsite at Xixerella is ok but not cheap and not acsi although you do get discount the longer you stay.

Bit of a trek for service repairs. I thought of buying a (good) bike in Spain, but as guys pointed out in a mtb forum it's not worth it to sacrifice the service back-up.

Lifetime worldwide warranty on the frame and anything else will be wear and tear,besides that I do visit Andorra frequently.And the Apple products also have worldwide warranty.

I thought of buying a (good) bike, quote

The bike I bought is a very good bike ( GT Xizang Pro Titanium ) Motocard is an excellent shop specialising in motorbike and mountain bike products and clothing.

Andorra is very good for mountain and motor bike stuff. We have Commencal bikes...being good Andorrans
Apple products are cheaper ( not significantly but still a good buy) and they get the new products far earlier than in France , no clue why.
Recently bought a digital SLR and could not find a better deal anywhere in Europe. And a designer watch was £1000 + cheaper than in LHR duty free. It may not be as " cheap " as it used to be but still has very good prices and a huge choice. Every day goods are still excellent bargains...detergents etc are a tenth of the UK price.

Next time I see a MH up a mountain, I shall know who it is

Personal Aire
We called in yesterday and filled up with Diesel @ 0.88 euro per litre , Smirnoff Vodka @ 6.95 euro per litre seen the Vodka as low as 3.60 euro per litre for non branded. Cigarettes Lambert & Butler were 33.00 euros for 200 and Golden Virginia was 59.95 euros for 10 x 50g pouches. Damn site cheaper than we pay back home.
