Could be something to do with the fact it's suddenly become much damper.

Re: How to become a greek resident

Vamos police station closed at least 12 months ago. As far as I know you need to go to the nearest one, which for you is probably Vrises, depending on precisely where you live .

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

Yes ,but do they own any satellites .. as Warwick says they are buying or renting bandwidth from the owners of the satellites ? This from Wikipedia: "BBB purchases broadband capacity from a variety of satellite companies, sells or rents to the end user the necessary hardware to access the inte...

Re: How to become a greek resident

So do we literally go into our nearest Police Station and ask for a residence certificate? Not quite. First, visit your nearest police station and find out exactly what documents they want you to produce, how many Passport type photos, which papers need to be photocopied in what numbers and fill ou...

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

Bigblu was formerly known Satellite Solutions Worldwide and have been growing quickly, partly through organic growth but mainly by acquiring smaller satellite internet providers and integrating them into the growing bigblu. They're the largest UK / EU provider and have a growing foothold in Scandina...

Re: How to become a greek resident

Apropos the comments by filippos and Warwick, yes I suppose it might depend on an individual seller or dealership ..... we bought ours from a main dealership... Both the cars I referred to were new and bought from a main dealership. The one I fell out with was Peugeot as was the one who finally pro...

Re: How to become a greek resident

...the point I make is that you could buy a car now without the need to have a residence card... not necessarily; it could depend on the dealer. When we bought our first car here the dealer insisted we must have a residence permit so we started the process. (We had time as we had an extended delive...

Re: Flight Delay Compensation

I've never understood why compensation for a relatively short delay is even as much as the cost of the delayed flight. It should work on the same principle as insurance; reimbursement of losses and necessary additional expenses. On a short haul flight delayed for a couple of hours you still reach yo...

Re: Airbnb

Well, apart from meeting eot requirements and/or setting up a properly constituted business with appropriate licence(s) you need to comply with airb&b requirements, which aren't too demanding and I don't thing they place any restriction on length of stay. The scheme started ostensibly on the pre...

Re: New House Purchase

Thankfully our solicitor is the SIL of our good Greek friend, his other friend is an engineer and did the survey and we have our tax numbers etc all sorted I think! If you rent out legally you need a lot more than that. Just getting a licence before doing anything else can be a nightmare. Maybe I'm...

Re: New House Purchase

I'd suggest you contact the EOT office in Heraklion for info about the available schemes and a good accountant. We have friends who had a very successful holiday villa once they had spent about 2-3 years satisfying the EOT requirements that seemed to change on a monthly basis. 100% occupancy from th...

Re: Flights December - January

In previous winters we’ve stopped in Athens for a night one way and timed flights so connection time isn’t too long or short the other way. The Sofitel at the airport is a good place to while away time out of the airport building. I understand your reasoning re-school time travel and I'd probably a...
