what to take on vacation to Crete?

Holiday house VILLA LIMANI recommends to take these items on your vacation to Crete:

How much money to take on vacation to Crete for a week ?

  • Take care because in many restaurants and bars you cannot pay with card. There are sufficient cash machines but withdrawal cost 3€ each time and sometimes they are empty or limited cash withdrawal available. For one week I would advice to bring between 500 and 1000€ cash excluding the cost of a rental car.

  • Drivers license(in case you rent a vehicle)
  • Keys and remote control of your home
