Re: Greek Banks

I may have missed this earlier but for couples with joint bank accounts the weekly limit is twice the €420 currently available as cash.

The maximum daily amount for a debit card is €600 and again this is doubled if both parties have a their own debit card.

This could help if cash is a problem.

Re: Currency Fair accounts

Hi I also had a problem with the funds arriving here in two days. Booked a contract with CF. on Wednesday 3rd and the money left my UK bank account on the same day, the contract was confirmed by CF. that the funds had been sent also from the UK on that same day. It was held up by the Bank of Greece ...

Re: UK Pension/ Income Tax in Greece

No way would I ever consider having my UK pension paid into my Greek bank account. Keep an account in the UK, off shore if you have to and then you transfer what amounts you like when the exchange rate is best for you. Come to that I would not even put any money in a Greek bank unless you could get ...

Re: MOT time again!

YoMo you were robbed as I had my car tested in December with the same good service and it cost me €15. It appears they were doing a special to encourage more Greeks to get their cars legalized. This also included the emission test.

Hope they do the same again next year.

ITV Iplayer Bit Rate.

Hi. We are trying to reduce the download bit rate on the ITV Iplayer. BBC Iplayer is simple as you can click on the lower bandwidth button to reduce the amount you use but have not been able to find an equivalent button for the ITV. Does any of you computer buffs know if it is possible and how to im...

Returned recently from the wild east and impressed with the museum at Voroi and the monastery Moni Toplou. Do not agree with the Dimitra accommodation in Sitia as it was crying out for refurbishment. It was old and very dated. Also had a few problems with hotels as a lot were full and it was busy. D...

The Honorable Woman.

Owing to visitors we missed the final episode of this BBC 2 series. Would any kind person be in possession of the conclusion to this fascinating story so we can put our minds at rest? Can collect in the Apokoronas area if you have. BBC Iplayer only holds for 7 days once the series has finished. Many...

Agree with moggieman that it is a bad move to transfer more that your day to day requirements to any Greek bank. This applies to both £ and € currencies.

Was given this information 10 years ago and it applies even more today.

The figure you arrived at is inline with my own. The grand total is good although I find that the separate figures do differ considerably from yours as some of the situations I have are not the same.

Keep up the good work.

Al Jazeera Sport 2.

Hi. Does anybody know what has happened to the above sport channel? Used to watch sport 2 which was free to air as it had a lot of tennis showing from ATP. The TV schedule on the website now says it is Bein Sport. The TV channel has gone from the Nilesat satellite and I wonder it has reappeared on a...

Hi,

We used Rombolakis from Xania. Gregory is his name and he speaks good English. He repaired the appliance but as it was not suitable for the heat we get here we had to replace it eventually.
Phone 6948 682146 or the shop number is 28210 46478

Hope this helps.
