    As we approched Gibrallta, a man with a VERY official looking document waved us over to the side of the road and told us we needed to pay a certain amount to enter the Gibralta area. Luckily and nice man yelled at him and chased him away. He was just a con man that wanted to get money from the unsuspecting tourists.
    There is definatetly no charge to enter Gibralta, but a very long line of traffic to retun babck into Spain. The Spanish officials make it as unpleasant as possible for the British to move back and fourth across the border.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you visit Gibraltar, there is usually a local 'entrepeneur' who tries to collect an admission fee to the rock. We ignored him, got yelled at, but kept the cash in OUR pockets. We've never been able to determine how legitimate this person's activities are. The Spanish exit-authorities are VERY rude, the British customs inspectors (on entrance) very courteous. Coming back from Gibraltar, be prepared to have your trunk searched by the Spanish authorities... it's nothing personal, they do it to virtually everyone.

    The biggest problem Gibraltar has is the border problem...which has been going on for years.be prepared to wait,unless you park your car in la linea which is the other side of the border,but be warned we regulary had our car broken into for only a few pesatas!!You do NOT need a visa to enter Gib. even if the touters at the border insist you do..other than that the rock is a safe haven to visit.
