    Question SPAIN - Luggage and dive insurance question

    Hi all,

    We're booking a trip to Spain for the end of June, mostly as a city break to Barcelona, but we're extending it to get a few days diving in at l'Estartit as well. I'm aware diving insurance is required for Spain but would appreciate thoughts on the best way to go about it. I'm planning on taking out Divemaster dive med insurance seperately to my regular travel policy and guessing this should cover the Spanish requirement?

    Also, we're flying with Ryanair into Girona. Does anyone have any recent experience of putting regs and a torch (li-ion removable battery, plus a spare - the capacity is 11 w/hr for each battery, which is clearly labelled on the batteries) into your "under seat" bag, both in terms of Ryanair rules, and airport security at Girona and the UK?

    Thanks

    Jas

    Don't forget you do need a current medical for diving in Spain, most places have a local "arrangement" which may well be cheaper than the UK find out in advance.
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.
