Re: Latest EHIC & Reciprocal Healthcare

And the (new?) S1 info says

'An S1 certificate helps you and your dependents access free healthcare in the country where you live in the EU/EEA/Switzerland. If you have an S1 certificate, it may not be valid in the event of no deal, depending on decisions by and arrangements with your host state '

Re: Latest EHIC & Reciprocal Healthcare

I think you need to add the next paragraphs to that text Voni - 'This means the UK government will continue to pay for healthcare costs for current or former UK residents who are living or working in or visiting the EU. The government wants to work with EU partners to reach such agreements. But if c...

Re: Sinalonga boats

The island opens April 1st so you will be able to get there. A couple of the tavernas on the seafront in Plaka have smaller boats and operate in April.

Another Scam - OTE (not)

Calls from 0046 ... numbers (country code Sweden) claiming to be from OTEnet and that you have a router/computer virus. They only speak English . I was pestered by them with 20 or more calls in 24 hours. I answered the first call and realised they were scammers (male with an Indian accent). Put the ...

Hmm .. not surprised! They (your surveyor who is gathering the info) may wish to check direct with EOT Heraklion office instead - all the paperwork is dealt with in EOT Heraklion offices. Chania office just sends it through to them.

Re: The Will of the People

Isn't May's Deal a hard brexit, with a 2 year implementation period (withdrawal agreement) ?

A 'soft' brexit would be a Norway style deal, remaining in the single market & customs union.

Re: 13 week ESL for property less than 100m2 ???

The stipulated size was changed to 80sqm in 2014 for the 13 week rental ESL - law number Ν.4276/2014.

Who told you the 100sqm? Has it changed back to 100sqm? You should check this first.

Re: cremation in Greece

Just to add on this thread, I was in the unfortunate position around 18 months ago of having to repatriate an elderly tourist who died here on holiday, with no travel insurance. The total cost was 4000 euros, a sum little more than the cremation in Bulgaria cost. Included all the paperwork, translat...

Re: State-only immunizations

It's probably the EOPYY building that you need. In Heraklion https://www.eopyy.gov.gr/site/0886A70F- ... 63566B5076

You could also try hospital outpatients at PAGNI hospital, Heraklion.

Re: Aegean bumping to Standby!

In my world this is a good example og an insult; "are you saying an airline would 100 % overbook if the demand was there in the hope that 50 % of people would not turn up?" ........ Norwegian Air do not overbook! None of the charterflights coming from Norway to Crete overbook in my experi...

Re: Aegean bumping to Standby!

Agree with mouche, to complete the online check in does not mean that you cannot reclaim the 12 euro AADF. ALL airlines overbook, it is normal industy practice as there are usually at least one or two no-shows on just about every flight. I read somewhere recently that there are calls to regulate thi...
