Surely dave £650 for 2 weeks at the anastasia in Aug isn't the normal price though.

Hi there
don't know where you fly from but looked on jet2 site and return flight for august 2011 is £ 170 + taxes.
I booked early for June 2011 and paid £100 each including taxes etc. worth looking on theses low cost sites.
Flew home with easy jet this year but never again it was like a bun fight getting on in Heraklion - shame because the flight, staff and standard of aircraft was great. Good luck.

Hi All

We like to travel independently but don't think we will be doing this next summer. I agree the flight prices are atrocious. The likes of Thomson and Thomas Cook obviously want you to book their accommodation as well.

I feel sorry for the apartment/hotel owners who are trying to go it alone when it's going to be too expensive to book flights.

By the way Jet2 flights have been good when we have used them and you are allocated a seat number when you check in online.

Cheers, Jean

For future reference, for those of you who can fly out of Gatwick, Easyjet usually announce their summer schedule for the next year in October. This is the cheapest time to book flights to either Herkalion or Chania. I booked my flights to Crete this year last October and most of them were less than £100 return - that includes flights in the height of the season too.
