IKA and over 65's

We are moving to Crete in March........Finally! (roll of drums now!) My partner is Dutch, but will be registered Ukrainian, so I would imagine there is no possibility of getting a European Health Insurance card like I have. I know treatment is similar to the NHS in the UK, where I think I'm right in...

Greengibble removals

Has anyone used Greengibble recently for removals either to of from Crete? I tried getting them on Facebook and emails, but they never ever send me a response. Seems like a really shady company! I do not trust anyone who cannot reply to a question or an email! Are they now just a shop for English fo...

Re: Top up mobile phones from bank account?

Thanks to you all. Mixos, I don't have an account specifically with any supplier (although my two present sim cards are Vodafone and bloody expensive) there in Crete yet, but I will do in September. Incidentally, does that mean even if I don't use it, I have to top up every three months with €5? Tha...

Top up mobile phones from bank account?

Can any of you top up your mobile phone from your bank account? It's the done thing here, but last year when we were there, I bought around €10 for each of our phones. Needless to say, we didn't use a lot of it, but when we returned here, around 4 months later we got a message saying top up your pho...

Re: Car hire from Chania airport

I hired a car at Chania from Monza. OK, they're the cheapest around, but extremely good. Nice reliable car and they responded very quickly when I told them of the windscreen wiper on the passenger side was useless. He travelled the 45 minutes from Chania airport to fix the problem. Now that's what I...

Re: Re-registering cars from anothe country in Crete

THanks for that bbc. Finally, I get an answer from someone who has done it.
I will make all the enquiries when I get back to the Netherlands and try from there.
Meanwhile, I am enjoying again the Cretan hospitality for another few more weeks yet.

Re: Ears syringed

Thanks Warwivk. My son was visiting here. He had a diving accident some years ago which necessitates a syringing every 6 months. We went to the medical centre in Kalyves where they did it immediately. (For €30 of course! )

Re: Cost of prescription medicines

Richard, I don't know if you have an EHIC card - whether the cost is covered by the NHS using this card, maybe it's one avenue you can explore.
Do you have one?

Re: Ink cartridges re-filler

Hmm, I think you're missing the point! The reason sites have a "Search Bar" is for people to type in their requirements and a "Search" comes up with the product, part number, or alternative. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't know what black hole my "Search" goes ...
