Re: Nothing has changed on here then

What a nasty piece of work you are Saddler. What a spouter of negativity. Go away - disappear and do your pathetic critiques somewhere else. We don't want you.

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

I fear my trip to Crete on October 14 is now very much in doubt. We (the UK) are still very much regarded as 'plague island'. Cyprus has released the lists of countries to be allowed to fly there and the UK isn't in the first two swathes - not mentioned at all.

Re: Britons urged to travel to Greece this summer

I have also booked flights for our usual two week break in Crete at the end of October. I put the chances of that actually happening about 70-30 against.

Re: Car rental - Excess Damage Waiver

I think I am right in saying that Athenscars , available from Heraklion and Chania, have no excess at all - everything is covered including tyres and underneath. I have used them for years - always reliable.

Re: Water filter taps

I know the water quality differs from area to area but when in Palekastro, near Sitia, I enjoy drinking the tap water - it seems to taste cleaner and fresher than water in the UK and even better than bottled mineral water.

Appalling weather

Videos appearing on my Facebook feed show utterly dreadful weather in the Chania region with cars being swept down swollen rivers; damage to roads and bridges and huge waves in Chania harbour. I hope everyone is ok. Is it as bad at the Sitia end ?

Re: Info for getting married in Crete

Sorry - quick postscript: Of course, we then had to acquire the marriage certificate (s). In our case, they were sent to us in England. We then had to arrange for them to be translated into English for use in England, if needed.
