At Simply Crete Holidays, we have always advised our clients to ensure that flights from the U.K are reserved via a reputable ATOL or ABTA approved agent. We also strongly recommend that you take out holiday insurance cover and ensure that you carry a European Health Insurance Card in case of emergency.

Both Heraklion (HER) and Chania (CHQ) are served from U.K airports. If you need any assistance in finding flights, please let us know which airport you would prefer to fly from and we will be pleased to investigate available flights for you and send you details. We are aware that for many people this may be the first time you have reserved a non-package holiday and will be happy to advise on the best options.

Many of our guests also come from other parts of the world and other European countries. Again, we will be pleased to assist in finding suitable flights if you need assistance.

Scehduled and Winter Flights to Crete

Although not so common for visitors from the U.K, many of our guests from other countries around the world choose to fly with scheduled airlines, particularly during the winter months. Short flights from regional airports to Heathrow or hops to Crete from Athens can be co-ordinated using online booking systems to minimise changeover times. If using the same operator throughout, your luggage will be transferred for you and you simply need to walk to the gate to board the next plane.
