Treatment cost estimate?

Haven't posted here for a while, but thought I'd ask the question even though I expect there to be no definitive answer... Six weeks ago, my wife fell and suffered a dual-fracture her fibula just above the ankle. Her subsequent care has been performed privately by Cretan Medicare in Hersonissos whic...

Re: Greek Criminal Record Check

Asked at the police station, they say I need to apply to the Penal Records Department of the Ministry of Justice in Athens; but as a non-Greek citizen I can make the application for this via KEP who will process it on my behalf.

Sorted.

Greek Criminal Record Check

Having applied for a job at Heraklion Airport and reached the final round of selections for a well-known holiday firm, I now need to supply both a UK disclosure check and a Greek criminal record check. The former is no problem, I can apply for it online and have it sent to me; but where do I get the...

Re: Mosquitos

Haven't really been bothered in Analipsi in recent weeks by any plague of bugs... the odd mosquito and black wasp. Haven't seen any cockroaches, and the ant population really seems to have taken a hit as I've hardly seen one this past 2-3 weeks. I have however come across a couple of centipedes whic...

Re: Flights December - January

What's the travel time, start to finish in each direction? For me? Yes, thanks. Wouldn't do for me. Despite being healthy and fairly fit for my age I'd flake out and need min. 24 hrs recovery, especially on the outbound journey. Assuming my calculations are right, allowing for the 2hrs time differe...

Re: Flights December - January

What's the travel time, start to finish in each direction? For me? Outward, we leave Heraklion 19/12/18 via Olympus/Aegean @ 0835, arriving in Athens @ 0925. We have a few hours' wait in Athens until Easyjet take us to Edinburgh @ 1405, arriving in Edinburgh @ 1630. Inward, we leave Edinburgh 2/1/1...

Re: Flights December - January

I managed to get flights for me and the wife from Heraklion to Edinburgh via Athens 19 Dec - 2 Jan with Olympus/Easyjet/Volotea for pennies over £400 total.

Thought that wasn't bad at all.

Re: Removal Van - UK to Crete

If you use Facebook, search for Sklav Smart. They are based in Wales I think, but they cover the whole of the UK and can transport to anywhere in Greece. I haven't used them personally, but a friend has and had no issues. I might use them though to get a couple of bits over from our house in the UK ...

Re: Piraeus Bank ATM Withdrawal Charge

Happened with my Caxton card as well in the Piraeus ATM in Analipsi, and the Euro Bank ATM in Hersonissos. Having spoken with Caxton about it, it is a charge on the bank's side and not Caxton. Piraeus is the only bank ATM in Analipsi (they have two), the rest are Euronet ATMs which I know charge alr...

Re: Hersonissos lawyer & accountant

I surmised (probably wrongly) that it was some sort of power of attorney form or accountants' declaration as the guy asked us who had filled the form in. I thought as we had help to do it from a third party (Marina's office) that there may need to be some official record to go along with the AFM app...

Re: Hersonissos lawyer & accountant

Went this morning to see Marina, but was dealt with by one of her associates. We filled in form M1 and was instructed to take them to the tax office in Hersonissos town hall which we did. The guy there took a look at our forms and rather than give a AFM instead issued us with a form M7 to take back ...

Hearing aids

Just before we left the UK, my wife was told she needed hearing aids. We unfortunately weren't able to get her some at the time, but we'll be able to do so once we're back over in the UK for a few days in September. But, is there anywhere in Heraklion/Agios Nikolaos where she might be able to go and...

Re: UK TV,LIVE & CATCHUP

The only downside to Savvy is they don't support android boxes, so you'll need a MAG box to use their service.

Re: Hersonissos lawyer & accountant

Thanks Paul, I don't know Malia that well... is that the big church at the top of the strip opposite the Galaxy Bar? Where the taxi station is?

I know there's a big supermarket around the back of there.. is it anywhere near that?

Re: Hersonissos lawyer & accountant

Much appreciated, don't suppose there is an address for her office?
