Re: Direct flights from the UK to Greece from 15th July confirmed.

Jackdaw I find your reply REPULSIVE ! Iknow that you don't live in Crete, but have a holiday home here! IF you did live here, you would maybe, be sympathetic, to the elderley population, who live in the mountian regions of Crete,which is where I live & this was quote from the owner of my local m...

I usually visit my parents in the UK, March/April time & had intended to renew on the same day service, whilst there. However Covid put paid to that & then the lockdown here.

Re: Passport renewal

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

Unfortunately it didn't work too well Mike! Normally July & August it's still full of groups of 18-30ish partying Brits, getting drunk, fighting etc. The only thing that has changed, is that they can no longer go there on an organised 18-30 holiday. I visit a friend of mine who has a small hotel...

A lot will have their EHIC cards with them, for medical cover. I think it would be a good idea, if the UK government, stated that they would not cover th...

Re: Any rebates available?

Jackdaw, Reading your post made my blood boil! Yes, there are some schemes for deferring bills etc, for those people LIVING in Greece, who can't pay their bills, because they're not working. The Greek government has been giving some money to prople unable to work, but it's not a lot. Nothing like th...
