Holiday Companies / Re: Olympic 2019
« Last post by Mike G on October 15, 2018, 02:27:31 PM »
We have had the same problem with Olympic, no transfers flying from LBA, so we are going independent next year its so easy and works out cheaper should have done it before but better late than never.
If you travel as a single it is miles more expensive to book independently, although admittedly there are some advantages with the independent route.

For 2018 I booked 6 months in advance for June with Olympic and paid about 375 with transfers included. Booking independently I would have paid more than this for the accommodation alone.

If I go in 2019 I will have to book the taxi transfer myself which I would be prepared to do to get back to Plakias.

The economics of Olympic vs. independent were debated in length on this forum a few years ago.

Yesterday rain and misserable weather. Today sun and summer temps. Lovely beach weather. Great calm sea.
It seems like there are more People than in august. Yesterday in Agia Galini and Matala it was very busy, also more than in august.

Hi.
Have you not tried booking it yourselves?
We  have not used a holiday company for the last 15 years. Cheaper and you get what you want.
Even book our own Plakias based taxi.
Give it a go.

All packed and ready to leave tomorrow morning. Last time 10 days for this year.
Weather is looking good so hopefully some beach and sea. I will try to keep you all updated.

I forgot to mention that we had to pay an extra 1.5Euros per day in tax for each room. Only for places rated 3 stars and above, apparently. We were given the safe for free, though (would have cost 31.5Euros otherwise). Interestingly, we couldn't pay it with the room bill but had to pay it seperately, in cash.

Huge waves today but sun now shining.  Warm and very humid.

Been here for 11days go home next Tuesday.  As has been reported some dodgy weather and there is more to come currently the sky is very grey and the wind is still strong.  The thunder storm the other night was violent with associated heavy rain.  Today we have a Red Alert for thunderstorms, so will wait and see.  Seems like the cyclone has got us.  Much of the islands have been effected also, with tales of ferry and flight cancellations.  With any luck our flight home could be effected and we have to stop here, what a shame.  Notwithstanding the weather, we have and will continue to enjoy Plakias.
