Re: Any rebates available?

I have always avoided my fellow Brits, tourists and Ex-Pats alike. I prefer the company of local people, even though I struggle to understand their conversation. The comments on here have done nothing to make me change my mind. So it's 'Goodbye' then. Bob. Yep. Fetch my coat. I'll see myself out.

Re: Bank security codes

Piraeus Bank use OTP to the mobile no. registered to your account (I used my UK mobile no.). I struggled with this extra level of verification and had to add 0044 after which it worked perfectly.

Re: Any rebates available?

As I said in my previous answer to this post, having dug myself a deep hole I'd decided the best option was to stop digging, but now, following another tirade on another post I'm provoked into replying. Some years ago I read (on here I imagine) that DEA offered a reduction in bills for those who pay...

Wow. Wrist well and truly slapped. Retreats with tail between legs. Was going to list all we do to support the local economy, but decided to stop digging.

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

The economic response is easy. You let the virus spread and simply leave people to die. Hospitals will not be overwhelmed if you simply don't admit anybody who develops advanced symptoms. Hospitals can then just carry on treating all the other complaints they normally treat. From an economic point ...

Any rebates available?

Like many others we're sitting at home frustrated, unable to visit our Greek house, where the overheads are ticking over. I think I read that DEA were offering a rebate for low consumption customers but our direct debits remain the same. Cosmote still want their 30 euro a month. ENFIA will be due so...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

Wow, people worrying about travelling on July 1 !!!! I'm worrying about whether we will be able to travel to Crete from the UK on October 13. When we planned our visits to Crete back in Nov 19 Covid 19 was unknown. We have already lost our Easter visit, accepting vouchers from Ryanair and Easyjet f...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

It's going to be 'squeaky bum' time for those of us booked on Ryanair Bristol to Chania on 1st July. Still have fingers crossed.

Re: Theft of wood! Hidden CCTV cameras in our olive trees?

Does anyone remember a report, during the winter, of 90 olives being cut down during one night? Somewhere near Kissamos?

Re: Greece Flight Ban Extended to 15 May 2020

Trying in vain to get a refund from Ryan Air for a flight Chania to Bristol on 10th May. No refund available since the flight has not been cancelled. How can that be?

Re: FULL Lockdown Monday 6a.m. in Greece

Regarding the threat posed by driving to a remote spot to take exercise, the reasoning being pushed here (borders of Dartmoor, proximity to beaches) is that your journey is unnecessary. If you were involved in an accident or broke down you would divert resources away from more pressing needs. I was ...

Re: 14 Day Quarantine - Arrivals Greece

We have tickets to Heraklion on 15th April. Our house is in Koukounara, above Kissamos. We had intended to use public transport from airport to home. Assuming that the flight goes, how would this quarantine be imposed? Interrogation at the airport? Who would be checking to see that we remained in ou...
