Re: Road Tax 2021

Always used to work for me too with Alpha Bank, Bagshot; I've been using that method for many years now. I think it is only some time during this year that they started to be able to accept the code, at least as a paste, with spaces. Something in their system simply removes the spaces. So far I've ...

Re: Buyers mandate form ?

I once signed something like that, in English, with a Polish letting agency in Chania. However, it was only done when we accepted that it would be 'sole agency'. That was also 3% commission. After a hiatus we cancelled the agreement and eventually sold through another local agent - the property then...

Re: Flights to and from Crete

Is Germany participating in the Missile launches currently occurring on the Akrotiri? Could be bringing in German troops perhaps? Bob. :?:

Re: Road Tax 2021

Ever the Luddite, I use Alpha Bank but when on-line usually 'Revert to Previous Version' only because it is an option and I don't want to plough through the 'intuitive processes' which never seem to match MY intuition!. I did that this time and paying the Vehicle Circulation tax was no problem. I we...

Re: Marital Status

As is continually being stressed in the UK, regarding immigrants who should abide by UK rules, the same goes for Greece. You come to live here, you abide by their rules. If they ask for something you can't provide because it is not available (like the marriage thing), negotiate! The Greeks will alwa...

Re: Online delivery address

I sometimes run into this problem, and like Kilkis, I just invent things that will work - largely because I know that the couriers know where I am and are usually happy to leave stuff at the local minimarket, or else ring me to make a rendezvous. On one occasion though I ordered some water filters f...

Re: New Lockdown

Does anyone know if the post office is still open, operating normal service? Which one? Kalyves is closed today. Bob Kalyves open. Post still being delivered from Vrysses, and still one or two Aegean flights daily to/from London/Athens so imagine the mail is still flowing, albeit perhaps erraticall...

Re: Healthcare after the end of 2020

It looks like the UK must have reached some sort of agreement on healthcare for some people after the end of 2020. People who get healthcare through EOPYY on the basis of an S1 form or as students need to apply for a new EHIC that will cover them for travel after the end of 2020. See this web page ...

Re: New Lockdown

The other option (if you have a Greek sim) is to send an sms to 13033 each time you want to go out. The format is: Number of reason (as listed in the forms quoted above), space, surname, space, first name, space, address. You will get an instant reply - permission. Saves faffing about with papers. ...

Re: Clarify PLF Rule?

SMS sent this morning, but no response. Tried a second time, still no response. Is 13033 working? Worked OK for me. Had to go to the healthcentre in Vamos so just sent 1 Scott, Robert Kokkino Horio and got an immediate response Bob. PS and that was with my new smart phone. Lesson No. 102 and counti...

Re: Closed section of National Road

Might be able to get away with it on the journey to Heraklion on the grounds of helping a friend, but coming back could be tricky. Don't know how buses might be affected (Chania to Iraklio) but it might be worth enquiring in what little time is left. Bob. :?:
