How to Book
  1. Email or speak to us about what you want - seek our advice. Choose where you would like to be - determine the length of your rental contract, and the start and finish dates.
  2. Make a provisional reservation with us, which we'll hold for one week.
  3. Shop around for the best flight price and availability. We can advise you on the latest situation including the best days of the week to travel, from and to which airport to travel, and who to contact.
  4. Double-check with us and then book the flight. Don't forget Insurance.
  5. We will quickly confirm all the accommodation details by email and ask you for your home address. We will mail you our simple contract, which we ask you to sign and return to us and then pay a deposit directly to the company bank account in the United Kingdom.
  6. The car-hire decision is yours. You can book direct with Crete by clicking this link, or with an international car-hire company in your home country. Either way, they can arrange to have your car for you at your arrival airport.
  7. We issue you with an invoice two months before you arrive, and we ask you to pay the balance prior to one month before you arrive.
  8. As soon as we receive final payment, we will send you a map showing you how to get to the accommodation.
  9. We will call to see you, to check all is well, within 24 hours of your arrival. After that, unless we are invited, we will leave you in peace and privacy.
  About Crete Direct

We are not a tour operator or travel agent. We offer Holiday accommodation or Long Term rental accommodation. As well as conventional holiday vacationers, many of our clients stay for long periods as sabbaticals or to work undisturbed on a project such as a book or a course of study.

 Some clients want to get the feel of living here before committing themselves to purchasing land or a house. We strongly recommend that potential investors should consider living here for a while, in order to understand the country and its culture. All of our houses are available for long rental periods at considerably lower prices.
From time to time, we have other houses and apartments available, so please ask if you want something extra or different to that shown on the site now.

Much of the European travel industry remains as it was set up forty years ago when one "couldn't trust the locals". Today, as part of an international community using modern communications technology, we have all expanded our boundaries of familiarity. Many of us buy our air flights and book our car-hire direct, and so it must make sense to also book accommodation directly from Crete Direct.
