Re: Residency

I had to show that I had a minimum of €4000 in a Greek bank account, have private health care and was charged an outrageous €1. You were ripped off, we paid €1 for the two of us. Maybe because they saw that was my daily interest, was the reason for the whopping charge, but no worries, I shall retur...

Re: Residency

“ The cheap (02 plate £700) Mini I bought has performed superbly and I’m thinking may be worth importing?” Your trip all looking good. Once the boring Ancona ferry trek out of the way it’s Greece and Crete all the way. Keep the car for up to 6 months, no longer, sell scrap or whatever but buy a Gree...

Re: Residency

I did it a few years back and it took 72 hours from door to door. It was quite tiring and I only had a few stops to kip in the car. If I done it again I would plan to stop in Italy for a mini holiday, oh and I would book a cabin on the ferry rather than lay on the floor, I was on a budget. I woke at...

Re: UK car to Crete Import cost?

If the car is only worth £1500 max, is it really worth driving all the way back and then fly back out again. What if the owner only gets £1000, the cost of the trip back and a flight would surely not be worth it. What if it’s not sold immediately? nothing is gained in my opinion.

Re: UK car to Crete Import cost?

My latest idea is to try and find a Greek registered car for sale in the UK... This might work... Or buy a Greek registered car in Crete. Car.gr or Supercars in Chania https://supercars-chania.car.gr/cars/ which I highly recommend. They speak perfect English and are genuinely nice people. You could...

Totally agree, for many reasons I first pointed out. You live here, you have a Greek registered car, not to obey any law, but for simplicity. If anyone returned to the UK permanently, I’m sure they wouldn’t take their Greek car with them to use in the UK, be darn right silly.

Re: UK car to Crete Import cost?

Possibly a lot more than your car is worth, maybe things have changed but someone I knew had it done at cost of €2,500. I personally would sell the car in the uk and buy a car in Crete, the paperwork to buy here is easy, you would be better off in a smaller car (especially in Chania) and of course t...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

If you exercise your right to fly on a plane then you have the responsibility to not engage in activities that put at risk other passengers. If you ignore all the guidelines introduced to limit the spread of the virus then you knowingly put other passengers at risk. You have not fulfilled your resp...

Re: Alarming rise in cases on Crete.

Why is it that government decisions are made behind the playground toilets? And as for paying the poor, how is it that someone who states they are a sports person, can run up a bar bill in one evening, that could look after a family for a whole year? Anyway back on topic, cases seem to be steadying ...

Re: WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR CRETE POST CONVID-19

This virus will change the future society and health for sure, just as the 1918 pandemic did, and it’s not all a bad thing really. Crete is a good place to be and the Cretans know this, the young have a lot of pride in their blood and I’m sure that they’ll do what is right. There is no point dwellin...
