Allergy/Pollen Count

I've never knowingly had an allergy but this year, for approximately the last month, I am having a reaction to something and I really can't spot a pattern. Today my reaction is the worst it has ever been and it's driving me nuts! Does anyone know where you can find reliable information about the pol...

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? My partner was due to fly to the UK on 11-April with Ryanair. She received an email about 7-10 days prior to the departure date info...

Re: seeking lawyer (consultation over e-mail/skype/distance)

Yes, that's her. I'm not sure which Kostas you are referring to but I believe there is a lawyer by that name in the office next door to Rita.

Re: Self certification permit?

I don't own/rent a mobile and my printer went kali nicker before Christmas so I'm hand writing my certificate. I'm rather happy to have to re-practice my Greek writing skills :) (By that I mean there is always SOMETHING positive that can happen even in ghastly situations.). Have you been asked by t...

Self certification permit?

Has anyone been completing a hand written self certification permit (as opposed to the text message or printed form) and had it challenged by the police? I did hear of some incidents at the very start of the lockdown where the police were telling people that hand written permits were not allowed but...

Re: Ryanair

I've got a flight on 11-April from Chania to Manchester but have yet to hear from Ryanair that it has been cancelled.

Have you applied for a refund Shamus? Was it easy enough to do?

Re: Top Up Heating Oil?

About 2 weeks ago it was EUR 1.06 at my local petrol station. Then it dropped to EUR 0.99 about a week ago and yesterday I noticed it was down to EUR 0.89.

Has anyone seen it cheaper than that?

Re: Ryanair April/May

Has anyone been notified by Ryanair that their flight has been cancelled and if so are full refunds possible or are they forcing people to reschedule their flights?

Re: Hot tubs and Kayaks

You could try Piscine Ideales in Kalyves for inflatable hot tubs.

I've seen inflatable paddle boards in Intersport in Chania, perhaps they also do inflatable kayaks.

Re: Highway Roadworks near Aptera

On the way at 9:15 the traffic wasn't bad in either direction however when returning at 11:30 the east bound traffic was backed up to the Souda turn off and the west bound traffic was considerably worse, backed up to about half way between Kalami and Kalyve...
