Re: Withdrawal Agreement & our Rights - What's covered?

You are right ros. I checked again this week. Government pensions have to be taxed at source ie the UK. There is other UK income that also has to be taxed in the UK.

Re: General information required

Apokoronas Council has a phone number for collection of large articles to avoid dumping by bins....although it still happens!! Your Council might have the same? Have they got a website you could check?

Re: Greek Driving Licence

As it looks like I won't have to return to the UK thanks to the WA, I'm just contemplating getting a Greek driving licence. If I do it now, will I have to renew in a few months time when I'm 65? If so, I might as well leave it. Any ideas??

Re: White goods

We ordered and had delivered a new large freezer from Kotsovolas last summer on the understanding, checked and double checked that the old one would be taken. Men in blue van arrived, not the proper Kotsovolas men and van , and delivered the new fridge freezer. It was like a scene from Laurel and Ha...

Re: Satellite Internet

We've been with Bentley Walker for about 7 years. We were lucky enough to get an unlimited package. It's expensive but as we watch quite a lot of TV especially in the winter then the UK up address is invaluable. The download speed is always around 17-20 Mbs so apart from streaming live TV we can al...

Re: SWIMMING POOL AND OTHER INFORMATIONS

You will need planning permission for everything except your bathroom. We used Piscine Ideales in Kalives for our pool 10 years ago and were pleased with them but there are also a couple of companies in Chania who do pools now.

Re: Greek EHIC card for a resident Brit?

We have satellite internet. The download and upload are really good but the ping is around 700. I don't know if it's a coincidence but when Microsoft took over Skype I found it useless for video calls from my MacBook. I use WhatsApp now for video calls. It always works well. Completely gave up with ...

Re: Which air conditioning

Thankyou Warwick. I have now found a few but always like to get personal recommendations especially for fitting. We have a thick stone wall to go through which could be a problem.,
