Re: When are small fires allowed again?

I believe that legal fires are permitted between November 1st and April 30th. However, due to the very dry winters, the time was shortened to the day after Easter Monday this year in Apokoronas. Not sure if it was the whole of Chania region?

Re: Buying a car

There are ways around it as some holiday makers buy cars even though they only visit a couple of times a year and for short periods. I think there is a document you take to the KEP office along with your passport. Supercars in Chania could advise on this and maybe his accountant. To have a temporary...

Re: Medical Insurance

As I have to pay income tax on my pension in the UK and we also have a house in the UK I am not going to pay for Health Insurance in Greece, especially as the hospital and police have been happy to accept the EHIC card so far. Of course, if the goal posts hadn't been moved for the state pension, I c...

Re: Medical Insurance

I've just applied for my permanent resident card at Vrysses Police Station and the EHIC card was accepted as proof of healthcare as it is for temporary resident cards. I had a major operation on my EHIC card a couple of years ago and I know a couple of people who have had heart operations on their c...

Re: Flights

But after a general election, and you don't like the party who has got in do you then say I want another vote. Yes, you get another chance to vote for your party in a general election a few years later - did I not make that clear above? This is why it's even more important to have another vote for ...

Re: Flights

[quote="evansmr1"]I am sick of reading, in this forum, that the majority of contributors seem to think that those of US who voted for exit from the corrupt EU club did not know what we were voting for. I believe that those of you (who seem to be a majority in Crete) did not understand the ...

Thanks for that, Tim. That's the best laugh I have had in a long time. I can't stop giggling.

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

We bought Tooway from Bentley Walker a few years ago. Really can't fault anything about the support or the system.

Re: Draining the pool over winter or keep it going?

A pool is a delight! Wouldn't be without it. I love swimming in the sea and it's only 7 mins drive but to get to the sea you have to pack your bag, lock up, get the car out, find somewhere to park etc etc.... Having a pool means you can just strip off when your hot and jump in, maybe several times a...

Re: Driving

Try phoning the help line first. We hire from Sixt but don't fit some of the criteria. Got to speak to a very helpful Scottish man in Scotland who said we were OK. He gave his name just incase we got a different response from the airport hire desk when we arrived. He assured us a debit card was fine...
