Accommodation and Flights

****Update 28/01/05: Almost all of Kosmar's accommodation in Georgioupolis is now booked up. It is essential to book NOW to be sure of a place****

There are two options when booking your holiday in Crete:
bulletA package deal from a travel operator, including accommodation and flights
bulletBook flights directly with the airline and book accommodation locally

We have opted for a package deal through the tour operator Kosmar (www.kosmar.co.uk or get a brochure from your travel agent). They offer flights from all major airports and can provide studio/apartment accommodation in Georgioupolis and Kalives. As a guide, two people sharing a studio and flying from Birmingham airport will pay approx 240 each including flights and accommodation (taxes and supplements may apply). This price is for one week, although Kosmar are offering 2 weeks for the price of 1 on many apartments in the region. Other tour operators offering package deals are Manos (www.manos.co.uk) and Simply Travel (www.simplytravel.co.uk).

                                      

If you want more flexibility and choice of accommodation, it is possible to book your flights direct with the airline (www.excelairways.com) for around 175 per person (plus taxes). However, flights are only available from Manchester and Gatwick.

****Update 28/01/05: If booking your flight direct with Excel Airways, type in the word CELEBRATE as a promotional code to get 20 off your flight****

****Update 14/05/05: The above code has now expired, but typing DIVERS or CALIS as a code will give you 15 discount, and you'll also get 5 off for booking online****

With regard to accommodation, the following sites rent apartments and villas at reasonable rates:

In order to best enjoy your time in Crete we recommend hiring a car. However there are buses and taxis available for travel between the major towns.
