Re: Still on the Road Topic....

I was extremely happy that they opened the new stretch of road from Agia Varvara to Moires on Saturday. I drove down to Matala on Sunday & it cuts 20 minutes off the journey time!!!

Re: need a 40ft artic France - Crete

Contact Nomad International. They certainly do removals from UK to Italy & Greece. I don't know if they could collect from France, but worth giving them a call or email. Many people on Crete have used them & they come highly recommended. I've used them myself on numerous occassions, but not ...

Another Mystery Flight!

While dropping a friend off at Heraklion Airport at 05.30 this morning, I saw on the departures board an Aegean flight Hanover/Frankfurt scheduled to leave around 7am, I can't remember the exact time. Three coaches arrived, one was certainly a Cretan Holidays Coach, dropping off German passengers fo...

Re: PROPERTY REGISTRATION

grannyM,

Where in the Heraklion area is your property? I live within Heraklion Dimos, but in a rural village. They have not yet issued the dates for Heraklion & my area to do this yet. I had this confirmed today by a lawyer.

Re: Currency Transfers, possible problems.

Kilkis,

I used the 2 tools you provided links to, with the Swift Code & IBAN numbers I have been using for years & they are all correct!

Currency Transfers, possible problems.

I'm not sure if this was a one off problem, or may have deeper, eg Brexit implications. For over 12 years I have used the same currency brokers to transfer my pounds to euros & forward them to my Greek bank account here. I have never had any problems previously, with my money arriving within 1-3...
