Re: E-paravolo - how to pay?

I honestly don't know what could be easier than walking up to a counter, handing the person behind the counter a piece of paper and some cash and getting the paper, duly receipted, handed back. It's like buying a tube of Smarties in a mini-market. That's what I remember. But I doubted my memory of ...

Re: E-paravolo - how to pay?

Can't you pay an e-paravolo at a post-office? I seem to remember doing so not that long ago.

google maps have blurred out most of Souda

Seems strange. My Google maps shows Souda normally apart from military installations

Re: Is driving with flip flops legal?

As far as I know you are not allowed to drive in flip flops in France because they could get in the way of your pedals. Barefoot is legal.

Re: Maximum passenger numbers in a private car

Further question on that subject: say you are 4 in a car and only supposed to carry 3 in total. Fine is Euro 150 but does each of the passengers pay the fine (Euro 600) or only the driver for allowing one passenger too many? I must stop and ask a cop this question I guess, preferably when not drivin...

Re: Traffic lights Megala Horafia

Who could possibly have guessed that closing half the main highway in August would cause big delays?

They might have been using a faulty algorithm when attempting to predict the results?

Re: Maximum passenger numbers in a private car

Thanks! Pretty weird to have different rules for hire cars and normal cars. It makes no sense.

Maximum passenger numbers in a private car

What are the current rules about the maximum numbers in a private car? A while back it was no more than 3 persons (if not from the same family). Has it changed?

Re: Mandatory use of masks from tomorrow, Saturday 18th July

I have been looking for a link to how many deaths in Crete from CV-19

As far as I know there was only one death in Crete. A visiting German university lecturer in Heraklion. See https://greekcitytimes.com/2020/03/27/i ... -of-crete/

Re: WD-40

Diesel will do it too and is cheaper if you need to clean a larger area. And if you have oil central heating you probably have some nearby.

Re: What to expect arriving at Chania airport

This means that if a particular batch of tests take longer than 24 hours for some reason, and certainly many have in the UK But maybe not in Greece. So far they seem to have managed the Covid-19 crisis far better than the UK so they might have their act together on the testing of arrival passengers...

Re: What to expect arriving at Chania airport

If you are tested you are then supposed to stay at your declared destination address and not go out until you get the result of the test.

I thought that you would only be contacted if you tested positive
