From Amicoche we want to transmit this information related to COVID-19 (coronavirus), for which travel is discouraged except in cases of extreme need:
Royal Decree 463/2020, of March 14, declaring the state of alarm due to the health crisis caused by COVID-19 establishes limitations on the movement of people and discourages travel, unless it is strictly necessary and for any of these reasons:
1.- Acquisition of food, pharmaceuticals and basic products.
2.- Assistance to health centers and services.
3.- Travel to the workplace to carry out their labor, professional or business provision.
4.- Return to the place of habitual residence.
5.- Assistance and care for the elderly, minors, dependents, people with disabilities or especially vulnerable people.
6.- Displacement to financial and insurance entities.
7.- Due to force majeure or need.
If you have questions regarding displacement during the alarm state, we recommend reading the frequently asked questions about COVID-19 on the DGT website. We also recommend that you consult with the competent authorities before making any trip, in order to ensure that your trip is within justified cases, sinceyou might be fined if the trip is considered unnecessary.
In any case, in any duly justified movement, the recommendations and obligations issued by the health authorities that you can consult on the website of the Ministry of Health on the coronavirus must be respected.
Finally, remember what Art.3.4 of the Order TMA / 254/2020 of March 18 says about the maximum number of occupants in a vehicle:
The private public transport of people in vehicles of up to nine seats, including the driver, in which more than one person must travel in the vehicle, will respect that there is a maximum of one person for each row of seats, maintaining the greatest possible distance between occupants always within the framework of the displacement cases authorized in article 7 of Royal Decree 463/2020.
In other words, in a normal car, there will be a maximum of two occupants; the driver in front and a passenger behind the passenger seat. And all this, we repeat, when both people are within duly justified assumptions to travel.
Lastly, remember to be attentive to the information channels of official organisms, since due to the exceptional situation that we are experiencing, these regulations may be modified.
From Amicoche we hope that soon you can return to normality and you can carpool normally. Meanwhile, we invite you to follow us on social networks and download our app. Remember that at Amicoche we do not charge any commission to the driver or passenger.
