Re: Proof of Covid Vaccination status if travelling from UK.

For Joan (and of course anyone else interested) Our friend returned from Greece at the weekend. She says there were no checks on indoor diners though as I said before, she was on a small island and also one where residents' vaccination rates are by no means 100%. Neither should make a difference but...

Re: Proof of Covid Vaccination status if travelling from UK.

Joan - a friend is travelling to Greece from the UK any day now, returning in a couple of weeks time. If I remember, I'll ask her on her return about her experience of indoor eating, though she's going to a very small island where I suspect rules may not be enforced in the way they might in a city. ...

Re: Proof of Covid Vaccination status if travelling from UK.

A negative and not very helpful reply from me. We travelled to and from Greece in September and had no problems at all with entry or exit. It appears that the UK government has devolved responsibility for checking travel documents to the airlines, and on departure from the UK our airline (easyJet) s...

Re: Greece excluded from UK’s travel ‘green list,’ report says

As this report is from the Sun 'newspaper', I don't put too much credence by the content. It may well be correct (though I'm hoping not, having a flight booked to Chania in early June) but there are conflicting views elsewhere in the media, print and online, suggesting that some of the islands inclu...

Re: Planning to Come to Crete what should I do?

This Brit is hoping to come. Flights have been booked since last year - if they're cancelled we'll just have to (try to) grin and bear it. Nothing we can do to alter the situation. Last year we managed to get out in October and felt welcome in each of our stopping places (we walk from point to point...

Re: Ferry timetable

Thanks for posting this.

Looking at the Englsih version I was briefly surprised by the advertised journey from Sfakia to Bathroom before remembering my Greek classes of yore :D

Let's hope some/many/all of us have the chance of visiting Crete later this year.

Re: When are you coming to Crete (again) in 2021?

This year we had a flight booked for June and after two cancellations managed to get to Crete in October (have been home for 36 hours). In 2021 we hope to be back in June.

Re: A few observations

Thanks, Mike - interesting to read. We arrive Chania this coming Saturday evening - a trip twice postponed from early June - and will be heading to first to Sfakia then westward. Looking forward to seeing the countryside at a very different time of year from normal; not so much looking forward to da...

Re: October weather

Thank you, that's really helpful. We'll be travelling from the UK in long trousers and fleece jackets with rain jackets in our rucksacks - whatever the weather in Crete, I'm sure we'll need these clothes on the journey to the airport! - but from what you say we may be able to pack them away for the ...
