        Can anyone tell me where I can buy a reasonable priced all weather car cover from. (In either the Rethymno or Chania area).

        Thanks

            Never seen them here, either being used or sold, unless you want to strap down a tarpaulin. We bought one on Amazon.

                I bought a cheap nylon car cover from Lidl 2 yrs ago, faided with the sun became brittle as well, waste of money.

                Any car accessory shop will sell the proper all weather covers.

                Lots of them here in Chania.

                    Olive Oyl, I have seen lots in use here to protect the cars from the UV rays which can seriously damage the car paintwork in direct sun.

                    GT in answer to your question I have previously seen them in Carrefour and a couple of other places but there are none around at the moment for whatever reason, and I have searched.  Therefore I have ordered one on Amazon. £27 with delivery to Crete.  Not sure what the quality will be but gets good reviews and will see.  Tried to buy here and support local economy but it was not available.

                        Obviously we have nothing but old bangers round these parts!

                            Thank you Sequinn for your comment. I have also seen lots of cars covered over here and just wonder where they buy them from as i never seem to see them for sale. I will pursue my purchase via Amazon as this seems the best option and at a good price. Thanks again

                            ha ha Olive Oyl, Guess they must be old bangers around your area because they didnt cover their cars to protect against the sun :)

                                A good polish twice a year can do wonders to protect from the suns rays.

                                My 11 yr old red car is still bright red not a faded orange.
