Used car prices in Crete versus Greek mainland

We have been looking at used 4x4 prices and there seems to be a significant price difference between those for sale on Crete versus those on the Greek mainland.

Has anyone bought on the Greek mainland and then driven and ferried back to Crete ?

Re: A website listing British expat property and used cars for sale?

A massive thanks for all the feedback and based on the comments to date I still think it's an idea that "has legs". I accept that sticking with the property market makes more sense than attempting to include a handful of vehicles. A car section could always be added later as we developed m...

Re: A website listing British expat property and used cars for sale?

I just want to stress that this idea has NOTHING to do with trusting one nationality more or less than another nationality. The idea was born simply out of the number of hours my wife and I have spent on the internet searching properties for sale and rent. Because Crete has such a large British exp...

Re: A website listing British expat property and used cars for sale?

Thank you Warwick. To focus on the property aspect, the website would act as an additional platform to create more exposure for vendors and purchasers alike. So the website would be used in addition to an appointed estate agent's activity. However, and this is the huge difference, it would be market...

A website listing British expat property and used cars for sale?

After contacting Carolina to get permission to post it would be great to get some feedback from fellow members on the following idea. My wife and I are relocating to Crete early 2017 so we have obviously trawled the internet re properties. There’s lots of information and estate agents on the web an...

Car leasing in Crete for 12 months

My wife and I are looking for a 12 month rental with a view to living permanently on Crete. After the first 12 months we will look at renting or buying. So rather than buying a car which we would have to sell if we decided to return to the UK or live somewhere else is car leasing an option in Crete?...

So if you are currently living in west Crete we are keen to know why you chose that region and if you have any recommendations re locations to live. We wa...
