Re: Dentists in Chania/Apokoronas

Stylianos Kartakis in Alikianos to the south west of Chania has a good reputation but I don't know if he does implants. You could phone and ask. He speaks perfect English. I would mention that in your original post the two phrases: "various periods ranging from two to four weeks" and &quo...

Re: Ryan Air Flights

...I've never been on a flight that took longer than 30 minutes... Who were you flying with, SpaceX? All Aegean flights from Heraklion to Athens are scheduled at 50 minutes. Ryanair always claim that they have the best punctuality record. I cannot imagine that they would schedule the flights for lo...

Re: Driving

A slightly out of date article in Drive Europe suggests that Priority from the Right is widespread in Europe: Priority from the Right applies in France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Hungary, Croatia, etc, etc. The only countries we are – fairly – confident it definitely doe...

Re: Parcelforce to Crete

All mail to Crete via ELTA now arrives in Heraklion first for further distribution. There used to be direct shipment from Athens to Chania but that stopped some time ago. Typically going via Heraklion adds 1 day compared to when it used to go directly to Chania. I think that is because it goes from ...

Re: Parcelforce to Crete

I've had exactly the opposite experience. It has taken several days, usually well over a week, for SCS to get the package across Europe to Athens, with very few updates on their tracking site, and then two days to get from Athens to me, unless it arrives in Athens just before a weekend.

Re: Parcelforce to Crete

If the label has your Greek mobile number on it the ACS office that services your area should contact you to arrange delivery or pick up.

Re: Parcelforce to Crete

It depends how they are sent. If they are sent "Tracked" then Parcelforce usually hands them over to SCS, a European courier service, and from SCS to ACS in Greece, a local Greek courier service. If you put the Parcelforce tracking number into the SCS web site it should give you an SCS tra...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

A few of comments: 1 You could have done everything at KEP without going to the licensing office. Once you reach 80 you have to go to the licensing office. 2 You may find it takes more than one month. I've known it take 8 weeks. I believe there is one person in Athens who issues all licences for Gre...

Re: Driving

Thanks for the details. I am guessing that that is the fee for a Norwegian licence? I think the exact fee will vary depending in which country the licence is issued and exactly who you apply to for the IDP. In the UK for example the Post Office quote for applying in a branch: 1 Your full UK driving ...

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

There are often derogations for individual countries in EU Directives and that can make them confusing. Often the Commission gets almost complete agreement on a Directive but some member states disagree on a specific issue. To get round the impasse the Directive will typically give an overall requir...

Re: Driving

As I see it there are two possibilities: 1 As part of the Brexit deal the UK could agree to keep the EU format for UK driving licences and the UK/EU could agree to continue mutual recognition. I see two possible snags with this solution. I can't see hard line Brexiteers being happy with the logo in ...

Re: Driving

Yes, it is a pretty general requirement. For example if you look at the Europcar site in the UK it states: If you are renting outside of the country your licence was issued in, if you driving licence is not written in the English language and /or the characters cannot be read in the renting country,...

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

I got the following reply to my email to Ask Police, my emphasis in red: Thank you for your email. The requirement to keep your address on your driving licence current only applies when you change your address within that country but nonetheless, when you go to another EU country your EU driving lic...

Re: Dermatologist

Yellow pages for Rethymno only lists 3. The rest are mainly in Heraklion. You could try phoning them. If you have to come to Chania you could try Spyros Gramvousakis. I found him quite good and other friends have used him. Perfect English.
