Going it alone
« on: August 29, 2005, 01:21:16 PM »
For our third visit to Plakias we have decided to travel independently for the first time. This is mainly because Olympic have absolutely no late availability for the week we want to go 27th Sept - 4th Oct.

However, I have booked a flight only with Olympic and plan to take a taxi from Heraklion. Have also booked via email at Kostas Chrysoula for a week.

Just wondered if there was anyone on here also travelling independently on the 0900 flight out of Gatwick on the 27th September? There are 2 of us perhaps looking to share the cost of a taxi across the island. If anyone is interested in such an arrangement then let me know.

That is the date we also set off independantly. Unfortunately our flight arrives at about 3AM on the morning of the 28th. We are hiring a car. We might have offered you transport but it is a small car and we rather overpack (2 big cases + hand luggage) and I don't think there will  be room for 4 people + luggage. However we might meet up in the evenings in Livicon if you happen to call in. Saga louts - usually lurking towards the rear of the room.

Have a good holiday

Last time we were there the transfer took close on 3 hours with the driver going at some ridiculously slow speeds (it was his first transfer apparently).

Depending on how we feel when we get there we might try to some arrangement with the Olympic rep but failing that an air conditioned taxi will do just fine.
