Title: Smart Holidays
Post by: ostraco on November 07, 2002, 01:01:50 PM
I've just had a chance to look at the Smart Holidays brochure. The 2003 version is not yet available, but they are taking bookings from the 2002 version.

This is a really different company - they offer many more choices to the customer. Apart from some accommodation in town (including the obligatory Alianthios Hotels), they have several options in the wider Plakias area, including villas etc.

Anyone used them in the past, or  have any further comments?

 We used Smart Holidays in 2000 and in 2001, and were absolutely delighted with all aspects of their service.  They have a wide range of accommodation, all of it carefully selected apparently.  We stayed in Plakias, Kamilari and Chorafakia near Chania.  Both times we chose to book a taxi transfer from Heraklion to Plakias, and found the drivers reliable, friendly and it came at a fair price.  We also used them to hire cars.  They really mean what they say about catering for the independent traveller.  Erna and Sylvia are friendly and will give very good advice if asked, which comes from what seems an enormous amount of experience with Crete and Cretan life.  I can't recommend them highly enough!

You can't beat first hand experience - so thanks for sharing Rebecca.
