They still have the EOT system as well. They are moving to catch up with all the others now (for tax) who have gone outside the EOT system by renting on Airbnb.

Re: How do I get to Chania at Xmas?

Unless the fares are significantly different I'd try to book both legs with the same airline and make sure hold baggage is checked through Athens to avoid collecting baggage and re-checking it. I think that limits you to Aegean/Olympic and Ryanair Note that Ryanair do not offer full connecting flig...

Re: Earth tremor Sitia, 27.08.17

A pretty common reaction but against advice in Japan. Most people are killed and injured by objects falling off buildings as they exit. All the Japanese engineers I was working with ran to the door but stayed just inside. They claimed that the door frame was the strongest part of the building and s...

Re: Future (and current) British expats in Crete

Decisions being made on emotion and guesswork. There's no indication one way or the other whether settling in Europe will be made more difficult. Britons lived in continental Europe before the EU was even dreamed of. Some people are pessimists, some panic and others consider decisions when there's ...

Re: iPlayer

Not sure what 'link you have always used'? This is the main link http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer

I have had an 'error loading subtitles' for a few weeks now on BBCiplayer and it will not load any subtitles at all. Anyone else had this problem and fixed it?
