Re: Flight time and taxi help!

...Aegean from Gatwick at 11.30am has a 50 min Athens connection (not every day though). If you book through flights with Aegean they will get you to your final destination at no extra cost even in the event of a delay & missed connection... Is that still true with a 50 minute connection time, ...

Re: Block on renewal of IKA books due to BREXIT

This is just a rumour at the moment but heard today that IKA are refusing to renew health care books for UK expats because of the BREXIT situation. Can't quite get my head around that unless they are saying that they know there will be a 'no-deal situation' by 29th March . Anyone heard anything? Bo...

Re: Flight time and taxi help!

2) Does anyone know of a good flight connection from Stanstead/Heathrow/Luton to Athens, which doesn't entail a 5 hour wait to then go to Chania? I can't seem to see one! Aegean from Heathrow at 12.15 pm has a 3hr 40 min connection time in Athens. Aegean from Gatwick at 11.30am has a 50 min Athens ...

Ring fence our rights now - British in Europe

British in Europe have just issued a joint statement with The3Million to Heads of States, EU Commission & EU Council:
"Show us some respect, ring fence our rights now – and give us solid proof that we are a priority."

Re: Kent Report

Come on Carolina no need to be so touchy! Of course the Kent Report is not off topic. Anything that adversely affects the Channel ports will have a knock-on effect on Crete Greece ie people driving to and from Crete, deliveries of goods to Crete, repatriation of corpses etc. I read posts all over t...

Re: Property Register declaration

In case anybody is panicking, I checked with my accountant and this is an area specific requirement not nationwide. For example it is not a requirement in the Chania area at the moment, although it will be at some time in the future. As I posted earlier, registration with the national land registry...

Re: Currency Index

Anyone who has used Transferwise - how long does it normally take for a transfer to arrive in a Greek bank account (National Bank in my case), from the time it has been sent from Transferwise?

Thanks.

Re: Greek Driving Licence

If you do a bit of Googling in Greek there is a lot of info/news about this new test for over 74 year olds renewing Greek driving licences, and it appears to have been brought in as law already this summer, but there is a backlog with tests so the government have given a 3/4 month extension for thos...

Re: The Will of the People

Flying intra-Schengen (e.g. Greece to Belgium) is where the problems may arise for UK passport holders as the rest of the plane won't even go through immigration controls. But according to the pundits, the Brits should. How are they going to work that one I wonder (see my earlier post). Bob. Once y...
