Trip to Crete no agency included Putovanje na Krit bez agencije

Selection of summer in the last two years has been Crete.
I do not have any special reasons why we chose to go there, except friends who insisted. The first time we got a voucher for the hotel as a wedding gift, and the next time we found a beautiful mansion for the six of us so that was a done deal.
Here I will describe our trip to Crete and the way we organizate it by ourself, as well as some suggestions for Rent a car in the area of Chania and Heraklion.

Izbor za letovanje u poslednje dve godine je bio Krit.
Nemam baš neke preterane razloge zbog čega smo odabrali baš tamo da letujemo, sem što je društvo insistiralo. Prvi put smo dobili vaučer za hotel, kao svadbeni poklon, a drugi put smo našli prelepu vilu za nas šestoro i to je bio povod da odemo baš tamo.
Ovde ću opisati naš put do Krita i samu organizaciju puta , kao i neke predloge za Rent a car, u oblasti Hanje i Herakliona.

The first time, last year, tickets were purchased in April, through the website Aegan.
Ticket price was around € 350 for two including all taxes and bags of 23kg per person. This flight was with a stopover in Athens, with 3 hours delay between the flights.
Time we had we used to go by city bus to the center of Athens.
And for the immediate return back.
Next time we will first have to check the distance.

Prvi put, prošle godine, karte smo nabavili u aprilu, preko sajta Aegan.
Cena karata je bilo oko 350€ za dvoje sa svim taksama i torbama od po 23kg. Taj let je bio sa presedanjem u Atini, a razmak između letova tri sata.
Vreme smo iskoristili da gradskim autobusom odemo do centra Atine.
I da se odmah vratimo nazad.
Sledeći put ćemo prvo da proverimo udaljenost.

From Athens to Chania we flew the whole half hour. Airports in Crete are very small and the crowds are huge, so it would be good to take a little more time before the flight so that you manage to do everything you need to.
Accommodation at Silver beach near Rethymno.
Hotel is on the coast, has its own beach, and this is holiday favorite for tourists from Germany and Italy, mostly pensioners, so excellent for peace and quiet holiday.
In return we also had a layover in Athens, or the distance between the flights was only an hour, so we jumped from one aircraft to another.

Od Atine do Hanje smo leteli celih pola sata. Aerodromi na Kritu su baš mali, i gužve su ogromne, pa bi bilo dobro da odvojite malo više vremena pre leta, kako bi sve stigli da obavite.
Smeštaj u hotelu Silver beach u blizini Retimna.
Hotel  je na samoj obali, ima svoju plažu, i  ovo je mesto gde letuju Nemci i Italijani, uglavnom penzioneri, tako da za odmaranje u miru i tišini, toplo preporučujem.
U povratku smo takođe imali presedanje u Atini, ali je razmak između letova bio samo sat vremena, tako da smo iz jednog aviona ušli u drugi.

The second time, this year, we took the tickets in May at a price of only € 280 also with luggage. The flight was direct to Heraklion. There we immediately rent a car at the airport, and were also pleasantly surprised by the price of 19 € a day for golf 5, which was more than enough.
Site through which we were looking for a car can be found here.
For cash payment you can pass more favorable.

Drugi put, ove godine, smo karte uzeli u maju i to po ceni od svega 280€ takođe sa prtljagom. Let je bio direktno do Herakliona. Tamo smo odmah na aerodromu uzeli auto, takođe smo bili prijatno iznenađeni cenom od 19€ dnevno za golf 5, što je bilo i više nego povoljno.
Sajt preko kojeg smo tražili auto možete naći ovde.
Za gotovinsko plaćanje možete proći i povoljnije.

The villa, which was really perfect in every sense, is not far from Heraklion, 5-10 minutes. The only drawback is that you can not walk anywhere.

Vila, koja je bila zaista savršena u svakom smislu, nalazi se nedaleko od Herakliona, 5-10 minuta kolima. Jedina mana je to što peške ne možete nigde.

Since we rented the entire house we had two kitchens, on the upper and lower floor, bathroom in every room, huge living room, and a beautiful garden with swimming pool, in addition to that we made a couple of times baked fish on the grill and enjoyed the wine we bought from local manufacturers. The price was more than ridiculous, 900 for ten days for the six of us. For this money in Crete can be found just a small studio.We, on the other hand, had a comfort and a swimming pool just for us, whenever it comes to mind. To avoid every day to cook and prepare breakfast, we paid half board at the hotel not far from us and it was a hit. We had organized some food every other day, and we can therefore organize where to go and what part of the island can we visit.

Pošto smo uzeli celu kuću, na raspolaganju smo imali dve kuhinje, na gornjem i donjem spratu, kupatilo u svakoj sobi, ogroman dnevni boravak, i prelepo dvorište sa bazenom, pored kojeg smo par puta pekli ribu na roštilju i uživali u vinu koje smo kupili od lokalnog proizvođača. Cena je bila i više nego smešna, 900€ za deset dana za nas šestoro. Za taj novac na Kritu može da se nađe neki manji studio, a ovde smo imali komfor i bazen samo za nas, kad god nam padne na pamet. Da ne bi baš svako veče kuvale i spremale doručak čim otvorimo oči, uplatili smo četiri polu pansiona u hotelu nedaleko od nas I to je bio pun pogodak. Imali smo organizovanu klopu svaki drugi dan, pa smo se prema tome i kombinovali, gde bi išli i koji deo ostrva bi obišli.

Kao što primećujete sam Krit nisam opisala. Ukoliko želite više o plažama, rado ću napisati dodatak, samo ostavite komentar.
