THE go-slow and restrictive checks by Spanish Customs officials have been greatly reduced over the last year.
The stop and start horror stories of three summers ago have all but dissipated and getting in and out is much easier these days.
The frontier has been upgraded, new lanes have been added and, generally, with the exception of rush hour – going in between 8am to 10am and coming out after 4pm – you can get across the border in around 10 minutes.
If you are still concerned, you can also keep an eye on the exit into Spain by checking the online webfeed: www.frontierqueue.gi/ and you can also check what the estimated queuing times are at @gibraltarborder or #gibfrontier.
