Hi Billy,

Have a word with Manolis at the new Taverna opposite the Cosy Bar in Plakias, he has done a couple of live music night in the last month or so.

Regards

Frank.

Plakias / Whiskey Business
« Last post by Billy on February 25, 2017, 05:24:08 PM »
Well it's all sorted. We are meeting up to play in Plakias between 31 May and 6 June. Gigs and venues to organised by the advanced retired party :) But we have one confirmed date on 31 May supporting a the Horny Boys rock band at On The Rocks. They are a great entertaining band. As for us we will be far more ropey as it's the first day together since last year. In our defence we do it for free though. However it will be a fabulous fun night.

More dates to follow. I'm also looking to do one or two more laid back solo gigs to let the old men rest. So if anyone knows anywhere?

Cheers
Billy

Holiday Companies / Re: All change on Olympic Holidays Manchester flight times.

And it's happening again! Flight originally 6.15am from Manchester, now moved to 8.15am, still with Enter Air. It's not a major change and at least means we won't have a ridiculously early departure from Plakias for the mystery bus tour back to the airport.

Came across a picture of Eleftherios, taken back in 2009. So sad he has passed away, happy memories

Holiday Companies / Re: Olympic Loyalty Bonus (or not)

I recently booked a holiday to Plakias with Olympic and asked about the loyalty scheme they used to have. I was told that they hope to introduce another scheme shortly. I thought the news might interest people here, if it does come about.

I'm booked for August from Manchester, with transfers.  As far as I can tell from Manchester it is only the ASLFrance and EnterAir flights that have transfers - and I assumed that's because they are Olympic's own charters. I think I would go independently if there were no coach - and don't really mind the magical mystery tour - due to additional cost of taxi (and cost and wrecked nerves of hiring a car).  So I really hope that there is a transfer when summer rolls around.

I was booking online but I had to phone up because the site crashed when I went to the final stage.  The price the nice man gave me was about 200 more than the price I had online. I took a quick screen shot in case I had to argue; fortunately his online search brought up the same price as I had; it was already top of our budget and I wouldn't have paid any more, even for Plakias.  It's happened before. Very odd.

Have booked for Plakias September 2017 with Olympic and transfers are included.  I made the booking last October with Olympic direct over the telephone.  I depart from Gatwick with Enterair, the Polish airline who I have always found to be very efficient.

Hmmmm........went booking yesterday ! Donna at Thomas Cook in town went through the offer for Plakias in September and, on their system, it included transfers. I explained the 'problem' with transfers as, when I had checked on line there was still a big red cross against their inclusion. On Thomas Cook's system there was the additional option of 'upgrading' to a personal taxi transfer at 120 each way.....which is what seems to have been offered to many people in this thread.
Anyway our rep, the lovely Donna, rang them, explained the concern and confirmed that transfers were included and that it has nothing to do with which airport or airline. So, I managed to book with transfers included and an additional 200+ of budgeted money transferred to the 'cocktail account'.
Just to say....be careful with this especially if you are booking online yourself. It may be better to work with a Travel Agent as they can question things for you. In the circumstances its going to be a very early arrival so a few hours kip on the coach wont be a problem.
Looking forward to Sept now !
