My mate is trying to book in there with Thomson, but cannot find any date or any airport when he can book. Surely they are still going to be open. Anyone heard anything??

My wife is just off to Thomas Cook to get some more euros. We got some at 1.2600 a while back, but today it is 1.2759 on click and collect. Best for ages.

Information and help please / 'Free' sun beds impending debacle?

The astynomia have been and visited the tavernas giving free sunbeds and doled out huge 'fines' of thousands of euros and instructions to remove them as far as can be ascertained. Uh oh trouble in paradise.

The weather stats on the webcam page has disappeared a while ago, will they come back any time soon?

Why is the temperature permanently stuck on 16- that cannot be correct as I have seen high 20s and even a 30 in the papers? I think the other stats are incorrect too.

Hope Lesley can find out if all is OK here as their website has gone missing, and I am getting no response from Irene's boy friend Vaggelis by email.

Has anyone had experience of buying and using a Greek sim card in their unlocked phone to get round the dreadful roaming charges of our UK providers?

San Stefanos news and views / Sun Beds
« on: June 22, 2011, 12:41:29 PM »
Now I see the sun beds are back, what is the price this year? Last year they were €7.50 for two beds and a brolly, or €5 for two beds. Bet they have shot up after the auction??

San Stefanos news and views / So what is Thomsons up to in 2011?
« on: July 31, 2010, 01:05:11 PM »
Knowing that I had booked for the Tsaros in May 2011, last night my mate was browsing the Thomson holidays and he came across something very odd indeed. I have got the 'usual' 20kg baggage allowance for the Tsaros, but when we got to look at the Kaloudis (Arillas) for September we found that Thomsons were only giving 15 kg baggage, but you could have another 5 kg for an extra £10 per person. We also found that the Mathraki was the same. Yet if you look at one of the sensatori places you get 23kg baggage and 7 kg for hand. What a ridiculous state of affairs that different people on the SAME plane will be getting different baggage allowances. Thomsons should try and come up with an explanation for something I find stupid!!

UPDATE....found this deep within Thomsons site....

Please note, customers booking Skytours, Just and Freestyle holidays, as well as customers booking their holiday within 60 days of departure, may have a reduced baggage allowance of 15kg. Please check this on the Travel Options page at the time of booking. An additional 5kg per person can be purchased at the time of booking for an extra charge of £10 (this must be booked for the whole party travelling).

Upshot is if anyone is booking Skytours then make absolutely certain that you know what allowance you have otherwise you will pay out bigtime in the airport!!
