2010 flight prices
« on: July 13, 2009, 10:44:18 PM »
I now see that the flights to Plakias for 2010 are coming on line.

We have just booked for the  for the last 2 weeks in September 2010 at a cost of 506 pounds for 2,  from Leeds Bradford with Jet 2.

And we still have this years holiday in Plakias in September to come!!

But what are the sites thoughts on the probable 2010 and onwards costs of independant travel?

At the moment, it stacks up with us as:

Flights for 2 = 506
car for 2 weeks = 275
Accommodation for 14 nights with  =  430

Which is c 1200 pounds.

I know that it can be done for less but we have tried both ways, and I know which we prefer.

But I do not see the costs (particularly of flights) coming down much in the near future.

What we were  pleased to see, when we visited Plakias in early May, was that the prices in  supermarkets, accommodation, restaurants/tavernas and bars had been held very much at 2008 prices.
This compensated in a large amount for the dismal exchange rate.

Now back to the computer to see what we can find for Early May 2010.
It may well be Monarch, to Chania, which will be a change!!

 Catch the bus from Chania over the mountains to Paleochora on the SW coast. Just google the name and loads of info for you to have a look at. Went there in 2007 and hoping to go back in the near future. Proper greek village.
