      Best Way to Get from Bitola to Meteora

      Greece Aug 18, 2015 at 9:32 AM

      I will be in Bitola in October with two work colleagues. We will be all over Republic of Macedonia on our visit but I know these two guys will absolutely love Meteora and I would like to try to get there for two days / one night when we're in the area.
      From Bitola, what would you suggest as the best way to do this?
      I was thinking of taking a taxi from Bitola to the border, then a Greek taxi to Florina. From there, though ...

      I see a network of three buses as an option (risky, though, with timetables could add a lot of time and if you miss one you're stuck).
      Can I rent a car in Florina (which would be helpful once at Meteora)?
      Could I lengthen the taxi route once inside Greece to a town where I could rent a car?

      Since we have only two days, we'd have to avoid a long detour to, say, Thessaloniki, in order to make this happen. It would be a real treat for my companions, though, so if we can pull it off I'd like to give it a try.

      Thanks for your help.

      Hotels west side of Chania

      Greece Yesterday

      We'll want a hotel around Chania, probably on the west side, where we can return easily from our day drives. Not beach hotels with children and dogs, but with a place to eat in the near area. Not in the city itself because of traffic. We need of course only one room, so a place that has one - two rooms above a taverna is fine, but I won't find something like that in advance.

      On our trips with buses we had other considerations. Of course we can find hotels on the way every place we go, but then we have to change rooms every day. Our trip plan will be according to wind and weather.

      Could you suggest an area where we can start to search?

      Arrange myself or use an agent?

      Greece Aug 30, 2015 at 8:18 AM

      We're just buying tickets to Greece (Aegean) for about two and a half weeks, from September 10th. Planning to visit Milos and Santorini, and then Crete which is our usual destination in Greece.

      We always arrange our trips ourselves, and never used a travel agent. I've been reading Matt Barrett's websites since I've got internet, maybe 1997, and never used his advice of arranging the trip through a travel agent. This time we have several islands with different transportation connections, is it a good idea of using an agent, maybe this time with the elections in the middle, and I don't know which strikes?

      We've been in Greece in the past at election times, and several strikes.

      In September, we're flying into Athens from Vienna on a very short turn-around to Mykonos. Does anyone know if there are separate terminals for international travel and local destinations, and how long it should take to get to the terminal for departure to Mykonos? I think we only have 45 minutes leeway (that's how the airline booked it). Do you think that's enough time, providing our flight is on time getting into Athens?

      Hello,

      Does anyone know if there is a ferry on October 4 (Tuesday) from Samos to Mykonos. I kept on checking Greekferries.gr website, but it looks like they only have it till the last Tuesday in September. I am so worried because Oct.4 is less than 4 weeks away and I am now suspicious that maybe there is no ferry.
      I don't know whether to continue to wait not knowing if the schedule is published later or there is just no ferry, in which case, I should change my itinerary.

      If anyone of you know what the situation is is, please help me out with the info.

      Can I use credit cards in restaurants in Kokkari?

      Prefecture of Samos Aug 16, 2009 at 8:55 AM

      I'm trying to decide which prepaid debit card to take out for our forthcoming trip to Kokkari. My choice depends on whether I can use Mastercard in restaurants or will need to draw cash from an ATM, on a frequent basis, to pay our bills. The FairFX card has a better exchange rate but charges for ATM withdrawal while the CaxtonFX card doesn't have such a good exchange rate (yesterday it was €5.75 less per £500 than the FairFX one) but doesn't charge €1.50 per ATM withdrawal.
