Re: A Heads Up About Car/Bike Insurance

Further to this issue, I have been trying to find out what you need to do if you want to take a vehicle off the road and put it back on later. As far as I can tell, you need: 1. The vehicle circulation document (green registration card) 2. The number plates 3. Photocopy of a tax return/statement 4. ...

Re: A Heads Up About Car/Bike Insurance

Seems like it is another example of the vicious circle of mis-trust between state and populus here.

Your average Manolis or Yiannis will cough up the €250 with a few choice swear words and resolve to cheat the money back somehow during the tax year. Nobody wins and the futile battle continues.

Re: A Heads Up About Car/Bike Insurance

Wow...You can do that?

I had no idea that you could temporarily hand the plates in. Where do I do that in Chania, please?

A Heads Up About Car/Bike Insurance

This is just a "heads up" for anyone who has a vehicle that is off the road and is not insured.... I have an old motorcycle that, for the past 2 years or so has not been working. It is one of those things I never quite get round to fixing. Anyway, I kept up the annual road tax on it as I w...

Cess Pit Emptying

Apologies if you are munching on a sandwich while reading this but... Our cess pit needs a proper clean out. We can pump away the water but it needs to have the slurry pumped out. The problem we have is access to our house is somewhat limited...Only vehicles up to a large pick-up size can get up bet...

Any restrictions for very small boats?

Hi all I have had a boat before and know that <= 30hp for normal craft and <=15hp for ribs do not require a license (although the vessel needs to be registered) So, does anyone know where this registration requirement ends? I have been given a 2.3m tender which will provide much fun with a 5hp outbo...

Boris Bikes in Chania

Hi

Last time I was in Chania, I noticed that there is now a "Boris Bike" style automated bicycle rental service. I think one of the pick up points is near the east side of the main market.

Does anyone know the procedure for hiring these beasts?
