Re: Central heating in winter?

And I always thought it was quite a "cool" forum.

Re: Alternative Electricity Supplier

I'm not sure where the 25 % discount over ΔΕΗ comes from? Looking at the ΚΕΝ web site the fixed charges are virtually identical to ΔΕΗ, the price per kWh during the night is identical to ΔΕΗ, for those who have the cheap night service, and the cost per kWh for daytime use, or 24 hours if you don't h...

Re: POST-BREXIT continuing healthcare

Sorry Bob, but I don't think it will be up to the Greek government. Greece will still be part of the EU(?) so Greece will have to do whatever the EU decides to do if there is no deal. An interesting analysis by Sky News today. London is the world centre for trading in gold. The London Bullion Market...

Re: Samaria Gorge closed tomorrow, Friday 29/9

As an aside to the gorge issue, anybody who is relatively new to Crete should be aware that they need to be extra careful on the roads over the next few days. The population of Crete, plus about the same number again of tourists, have spent the summer months carefully laying down a coating of rubber...

Re: Central heating in winter?

I am not out to chastise anybody, Martin, including you. Steve and anybody else is entitled to state their location, or not, in any form they please. I was simply responding to your statement: ...I don't see where she stated her location in this question (and I'm not going to search)... and pointing...

Re: Samaria Gorge closed tomorrow, Friday 29/9

The forecast I use, Weather Underground, is predicting as much rain on Saturday as on Friday and a significant amount on Sunday and Monday so if anybody is trying to make plans for a Samaria trip it might be wisest to assume it will be closed all weekend and then be pleasantly surprised if it isn't....

Re: Garden centre recommendation

The one with the best quality plants but limited variety is Φυτώρια Βαλάκης at 35°28' 22.39"N 23°54' 59.26"E Another one, with more variety but possibly not as good quality and more expensive, is just off the national highway at the Mournies junction at 35°29' 22.77"N 24°1' 1.28"...

Re: IKA and over 65's

I am sorry if mentioning the IKA health book confused things. As Clio pointed out the EHIC and the IKA health book are NOT equivalent. The point I was trying to make was that if you require treatment while in Greece and IF that treatment IS VALID under the terms of the EHIC, then what you might or m...

Re: Facebook problems

You can unfollow someone on Facebook. If you do that you won't get notifications from them but they won't know. Alternatively you can block someone , which is harsher. There is an article on Expert Reviews here . The article is from 2015 so the processes may have changed a little as Facebook updates...

Re: IKA and over 65's

I was describing "how" it worked, i.e. the practicalities, Clio, not what you are entitled to. Alan seemed to have that wrong in his original post, i.e. "...I think I'm right in saying I pay for the doctor's time and prescriptions". Filippos' post, and the previous thread he refe...

Re: IKA and over 65's

I've never used an EHIC in Greece, so I am not sure exactly how it works, but I think it effectively works as though you had an IKA health book. If I am correct then that works as follows: 1 If you go to an IKA doctor or to a public hospital you don't pay anything for the time. 2 If you go to a priv...

Re: Buying an apartment in Nea Hora

Probably not. The government is currently facing this problem and finding it very difficult to resolve, e.g see this ekathimerini article . In most areas of Greece there are so few properties changing hands that it makes it difficult to calculate the ratio of objective value to market value. The cur...

Re: Pensions

If you take the whole pension pot in one go in the UK then the first 25 % is tax free but the other 75 % counts as income in that year and is taxed as such. If you had a salary in that year the 75 % of the pension pot is added to it which could lead to paying very high marginal tax rates on that 75 ...
