I am retired and spend from 1st Nov/31st Jan & 1st May to 30th July in Mar de Cristal.

To keep my self active and not bored i am hoping that i could pick up some driving work, whether Airport or long journeys across Europe or UK.

Be very careful - you would need insurance for carrying paying passengers, and the only legal people to do airport runs and the like are licensed taxi drivers. Without full legal cover you risk being stopped and the vehicle impounded with any passengers and you having to find their own way home.

Thanks,  good advice.   I will speak to my existing insurers and see what they say.

Not only that 

Is you have to be registered to work in Spain 🇪🇸

Very difficult now after Brexit 

You still can but lots of hoops to jump through first 

checking with your car insurance doesn’t 

Qualifie you to work

Just a thought: if you are just wanting to find something useful to do, not trying to earn a bit of money, why not approach the charities in the area? They may be grateful for volunteers with transport and would no doubt know about the necessary legal stuff. Try HelpMarMenor or similar.

You will also find that registration numbers are recorded via the cameras at airports and regular visiting cars will be stopped and driver interviewed by Guarda Civil for not only the correct insurance but also licence.    They have a specialist team that is monitoring this illegal activity.
