Holiday Companies / Re: Chania Airport

We flew with Ryan Air into Chania this year - much, much better than Heraklion. We were off the plane, had our cases and into hire car in less than 40 mins! Coming back was even better - new check in desks take your luggage straight from you, not like Heraklion having to check in, then lug up cases back to xray. Flights arrived and left bang on time.

Only problem when driving is that direction signs are practically non existent, especially on return journey, but journey to and from Plakias is much more scenic and enjoyable.

Chania every time for us from now!

Plakias / Greek Financial Crisis

Hi anyone in Plakias at the moment - can you advise situation regarding money:
Are any of the cash machines working?
Are the shops accepting payment by credit/debit cards or is it strictly cash only?
We are arriving on Friday night and need to plan our finances!

Many thanks

Really enjoy my daily "fix" of the webcam & weather - roll on next Friday when we arrive back in Plakias!  Yamass

In line with various other posts on here - I recommend "The Island" by Victoria Heslop; it is a wonderful story about Spinalonga and the effect of leprosy on the life of a young girl growing up on Crete. Very emotional, but also uplifting and hard to believe it is true.

A great read!
