I wonder if someone could please help us! We are looking to travel to Plakias on 26th July - 2nd August and will be flying to Heraklion Airport. Olympic does not seem to offer transfers to Plakias when flying from Birmingham so we are trying to find the best (and least expensive way) to travel to Plakias from Heraklion.
I have read there are buses you can take from the airport with 1 change, however I'm concerned that these will not be available at the times we need them and do not wish to be stranded! These are the flight times we are currently looking at:
Birmingham to Heraklion Airport
Tue, 26 Jul 2016 at 13:55
Heraklion Airport to Birmingham
Tue, 2 Aug 2016 at 20:45
I've looked on the bus timetable web link I've seen in other posts:
However this does not seem to show a good variation of times that go between Plakias and Heraklion, hopefully I have just read the bus timetable completely wrong and someone can tell us it will be possible to get the bus at the times we require!! :)
Any help would be much appreciated, we really would like to visit this area of Crete but worry that without the transport links we will have to stay closer to the airports as we cannot really afford an expensive taxi journey.
Thank you very much,
