Re: Buying a car

KEP certainly wanted both parties (seller and buyer) to be there in person the two times I used them. As it wasn't a problem I never asked if this could be circumvented. It's probably possible. You could ask KEP directly or a lawyer?

KEP will help you do the paperwork and will tell you exactly what you need.

Re: Heating oil price

Which subsidy? Heating oil is taxed, not subsidized.

Re: Large Military ship off Kolymbari

The large one (there were other ships parked in the bay) was a helicopter carrier. Don't know about the specifics though.

Re: Insurance for a British reg van in Crete?

Some 20 years ago I insured our UK reg car with a Greek company in Chania - Alpha I think it was. Had the insurance for about 1 year before legally importing the car and getting Greek plates (yes , we lived here all the time) and the insurance company just changed the reg no! Not sure you can do th...

Sales 2018

A quick question, maybe for Caroline who seems to know these things: when do the sales start in January?

Re: Residence permits.

The potential advantage of swapping the first type of certificate for the second type, if you are eligible, is that the agreement between the UK and the EU on citizens rights makes a provision for exchanging the second type for whatever document is required after Brexit free of charge and with mini...

Re: Best place to advertise used laptop

It would make sense if you said where you are. But in case you are in Chania there is this: https://www.facebook.com/groups/423558357696857

Re: Ryanair Cancellations

And now received a voucher for Euro 80. What a joke! Must be redeemed before 20th March. First flight out of Chania starts on the 25th of March.

Re: Ryanair Cancellations

Just got two Ryanair flights cancelled. One Chania to Athens in late October and the other one Athens to Chania in late November. It also seems that Ryanair has dropped most of their winter time-table between Athens and Chania. So had to move on to twice as expensive Aegean. I am pretty pissed off w...

Re: Greek Honey

"Better" is very subjective. As for the price differences, you have market forces at play: Cretan thyme honey wholesales for a lot more than any other Cretan honey because there is more demand for it. That will affect retail prices.

Re: Places to visit

Assuming that you are talking about WWII in 4 hours you can just about go to the Allied War Cemetery in Souda, the German cemetery above Maleme (where you can see the airport), pass though the square at Galatas. On your way (from or back to Elounda) make a detour to visit Imbros and have a quick loo...
