This topic has been going back and forth forever.

Please include price and contact info.

take a van for ~350nis

And who should one call for this van?

I'm looking for someone with place for 6 adults & 3 children.

Also, looking for a secured ride to Chevron for for 8 adults & 3 children.

The only number in the wiki doesn't have such a vehicle.

Can someone please explain the process of eating in a restaurant on the 2nd day of yomtov?

Preset menu or just order from regular one?
Do all restaurants (Yerushalayim near waldorf) offer this?

Are there any that offer the meals in a quiet (more YomTov) setting?

Ok, as you insist. I think Santorini is overpriced, overcrowded, and overrated.
Hotels are expensive and have very small rooms. There is one goal on the locals minds, suck every penny out of this invader who is crowding my space. The iconic shots on Instagram (which are ridiculously packed by sunset with savages fighting for that picture to show everyone their life is perfectly idylic) aren't as picture picture as they may come off. The island isn't very clean and can occasionally smell.
There are just as nice sunsets, people, experiences, hotels, beaches....on other islands that aren't as overpreached as this one.
As I said, this isn't very helpful to you and it's likely not what you wanted to hear.

That being said I'm sure you will have the time of your life and will enjoy it immensely. There are ways to get off the beaten path and I'm sure the crowd issue is less now in the beginning of the season then during peak.


Looking for 1 or 2 apartments near the Waldorf for May 16-23. Main interest is walking to Kosel so Rechavia is an extra 10+ minutes.

Not everything is open and it's still too cool for an Island vacation. So I would skip Crete.

I have never been to Thessaloniki. I have heard that there are a number of Jewish sites there.

Athens has plenty for 1-2 days. Plus that's were the main airport is. Read through the thread and you'll find enough things to do.

I used a Jewish tour guide, if that's your thing.

This is from Delta's web site:

All post purchase paid upgrades are nonrefundable and must be used as ticketed. No changes are permitted.  Failure to use the seat upgrades as ticketed will result in forfeiting the upgrade purchased.

My question is, do all airlines have the same policy. If not, which ones?

No. The airport is quite far from the city.

If I get the travel credit and then get a refund from the carrier, does Chase take the credit back? How about if it's a month or two later?

I tried this with Delta and got the travel credit. But when I canceled my ticket, I noticed the fine print that says you lose the seat upgrade payment.

Are there any airlines that refund the seat upgrades when you cancel a refundable ticket?
