Thanks Carolina. All very turbulent, but it looks like the situation in Peireas at least is now calming down.

Farmers: Carolina?

There seem to be some dramatic developments today in the dispute between the Cretan farmers and the government - more tear gas and injuries at Peireas, back in Crete local government offices closed, public buildings occupied, a new blockade on the ethniki - but I for one am struggling to understand ...

So things turned ugly this morning in Piraeus port where riot police were waiting when the ferries docked. situation. Crass, or what? The maladroitness of Greek politicians never ceases to amaze me. The heavy-handed, riot-police reaction at Piraeus is surely an example of how not to govern? Imagine...

When I used to come here on holiday (admittedly in high season with more facilities available) I never even bothered to pre-book a car. My memory is that the airport car-hire offices were open as long as there were flights – i.e. all night – and I used to just shop around, making sure that I could b...

My second thank-you of the day to The Friendly Site and a big kiss for Kilkis. I followed your instructions to the letter re the refund, and have just had an email from easyjet saying they've refunded me the money. They didn't even ask for boarding pass originals. It worked a treat, so cheers, Warwick

Blockade

I need urgently to get to Chania from the Heraklion direction on Tuesday, and am concerned that the farmers’ blockade may be still going on, and make the journey difficult if not impossible. I have been following the Greek news reports, I know what is the political situation, but what I could do wit...

No, you don't need a sponsor. You just fill in an application form, which will be available at the counter, and it is issued automatically (you probably need your passport for verification). You might however want to have a local friend help you through the form-filling which is very simple, but in ...

Thanks guys, you’re brilliant. Love Clio PS You well-travelled lot probably know this already, but if you want to contact easyjet with a query, and you manage to fight your way through a thicket of defensive FAQs and actually email them, your question will be dealt with (inadequately) by somebody re...

Airport Queries

I'm just about to go to the UK for the first time in nearly a decade and I feel like a country cousin where today's flights are concerned. I shall be flying Chania to Athens, then Easyjet to Luton. I seem to remember various threads in the past about reclaiming twice-paid airport tax at the airport,...
