Holiday Companies / EasyJet Autumn flights

For anyone interested these are now available.  I saved a bit by getting up early but would say the prices are reasonable rather than cheap.

Holiday Companies / Thomas Cook Airlines

I had booked for 10 days next May into June but Thomas Cook have decided to cancel Friday flights from/to Glasgow.  At first glance their email notification suggested only a flight time/seat reservation change and I nearly missed the fact they had changed my return flight by 3 days!!

When I phoned up they offered either chance to cancel or come back 4 days later than planned ‘at no extra charge’.  Fortunately I had already sussed that their prices had dropped since I booked so I decided to cancel and rebook saving £175 in the process.

So alls we’ll that ends well and the saving will pay for my extra 4 nights accommodation in Plakias!

I share this just to put you on alert to read carefully any emails you might receive from Thomas Cook but also to point out that they are offering some very good prices at the moment - cheaper than EasyJet, Jet2 etc. 

Holiday Companies / Jet2 flight competition

Just to say this worth a try if you are prepared to persevere.  I won free flight for next summer (exc school hols).

Only problem I had just booked with Thomas Cook the week before!  What a dilemma do I come to Plakias twice or try something different?  Maybe Cephalonia as there are flights from Edinburgh?  Anyone been and can recommend a resort?

Plakias / Physiotherapy

Just a recommendation for Antonia Daskalaki, physiotherapist in Plakias.  My wife was suffering from sciatica on holiday recently but Antonia was able to recommend exercises that helped with her pain and mobility.  So if you are having problems worth a try. Her surgery is back in the olive groves but you can get directions/info from Moto Auto Plakias on the front.

After several days of extreme heat and humidity the weather broke yesterday and the tourism festival was cancelled.  Has rained just about all day today though bright skies over and beyond Gavdos.  Hoping for better tomorrow but not convinced!

Plakias / cheap flights

For anyone interested and still to book a flight to Crete, have knocked 20% off all their seat prices.  I've used them several times and found them very reliable.

Sorry Alex G you should have waited - there again so should I!
