Great to see the forum up and running, we need as much information as possible at the present time. So many people have booked holidays for Alykes/Alykanas or will want to as soon as things begin to get back to normal.

Thereís a very informative and accurate thread running on Tripadvisor at the moment. It includes updates on plans set out as regardís to future travel to Greece by the Greek government. Hereís a link to the latest page (11) which makes for interesting reading:-  https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g189398-i192-k13278343-o100-Greece_and_Covid_19_situation-Greece.html

The Greek police are taking the restrictions very seriously 150 Euro fine if you get caught and it's getting doubled to 300 Euro over Greek Easter

Sincerely hope so Sonia, we were due out tomorrow for the Greek Easter. I donít think weíll be going for our usual June trip but fingers and everything else crossed for our late August holiday.

Hope you are able to celebrate Greek Easter at home Tony ( imagine a table laid with painted red eggs, Greek treats and maybe roasted lamb on Easter Sunday) and maybe be able to go next year . In 2021 it is 02nd May.

I was due to go to Crete yesterday and was really looking forward to experiencing a Greek Easter.

We're due to go to Alykanas 23rd May so that is definitely off and although I could move it, I still think June and even July may be a bit too soon so I'll hopefully get a refund from Easyjet. Have 29th August booked and feeling hopeful.

We were due to celebrate the Greek Easter too in Alykanas but our yesterdayís flights were obviously Cancelled. Got flights booked for June but Iím not even hopeful about them. At this point Iím a little more optimistic for our late August flights but theyíre in the hands of God in these very worrying times for all of us, take care.

Hope you're right Sonia because we're due to go four days later!
