Covid-19 update

We would like to inform you abou the situation and the new rules after Lockdown on Crete (15/03/2022 Update):


  1. How you can arrive to Greece?

From 15 March 2022 onwards, travellers visiting Greece are no longer required to fill out the Passenger Locator Form (PLF).

However, a simplified PLF remains in operation, the completion of which is OPTIONAL, for the sole purpose of enabling the traveller / family to issue an EU Certificate of negative or positive COVID-19 test result.  

Travellers, who decide to fill out the simplified form, will receive the PLF with their unique Quick Response (QR) code via email (the QR code will be provided in a link in the email).


For any question or advice please do not hesitate to contact us!

Hello to everybody from Crete (03/05/2020)!

In these extremely challenging times, I would like to share our heartfelt support and solidarity with you and your families. Also I would like to share with your all the information we have and how we live on Crete with the corona crisis & how is the situation now!

Me and my family live in Hersonissos & Ierapetra. We try to be calm and we stay home! We go for a walk by the sea and that is the most beautiful and calm thing we can do in quarantine! I will leave below for you some foto’s! 😊




As governments around the world are implementing measures to contain this public health crisis, we have been taking strict precautions to protect everybody. On this time of the year we were supposed to be open!  We feel really sad that we can not welcome you on Crete. But we hope that it will be again soon possible.

The public life of Crete has been significantly restricted, according to state regulations to slow down the spread of coronavirus, as is the case throughout Greece: At the moment, most shops, schools, universities and publicly accessible establishments remain closed, and the population is only allowed to leave home if there are good reasons. Hotels will also remain closed . All state hospitals, private clinics and the university hospital in Heraklion are on heightened alert. The movement of goods is not limited, and food supplies are provided without any problems.

We have not any new active case of Corona Virus on Crete for at least 20 days. There was not spread of the virus in the Cretan community. We had cases only with people they were travelling in other places & most of them outside of Greece.  

4 of May the government will start slowly to open some shops, schools etc. Hope that the airlines will be able to fly soon and the hotels will open their doors also soon! 😊

It is difficult to watch Crete at this time of the year.

As you know on this time of the year everything would be open and tourists would be around the island and explore the beauties of Crete. Now everything is closed and everybody wish for the best!

As always, we would like to communicate openly and honestly with our clients: at the moment we do not know exactly how this unprecedented situation will affect your summer holiday. We are monitoring the situation closely and keeping close contact with the relevant authorities. We hope that the pandemic will be contained as soon as possible, that the measures ordered will be loosened and that things will return to normal as soon as possible.

However, what we definitely know is that the safety and health of our clients and employees is our highest priority. For this reason, we fully respect and support the measures ordered by the government, even though they mean massive financial pressure for us, as a tourism company. We consider these measures to be the only way for all of us, as healthy as possible, to emerge from this unprecedented crisis in a coordinated manner.

--For all bookings from 18/05/2020:

-All of our clients whose planned holidays from 18.05.2020 now have the opportunity to postpone their booking to another date until 31.12.2020

-if it is not possible to postpone your holiday, you have the possibility to cancel your booking  free of charge. There are no cancellation fees for your booking! You can cancel your booking without fees up to 2 days upon  your arrival.

--Hygiene & prevention measures to welcome you with safety when this will be possible again!

Crete Holidays & AutoTours follow predefined and established procedures to prevent infections and have increased their hygiene measures. To ensure the best possible level of precaution and prevention, we monitor the situation closely and maintain close contact with the relevant authorities.

Stay home & Stay healthy and we hope to see you this year as every year on Crete!

We miss you all and hope to see you soon!
