        I can pay my electricity bill online with my bank but can I pay my water bill also?
        I have tried but with no luck
        I bank with Alpha.
        Also is there an english version of the water bill ? I know ther is an english explanation of the electricity bill.
        Thanks

            To be blunt – no on both counts – but things are becoming more modernized so maybe soon the water office will be dragged screaming into the 21st century and use an online payment system too.

                Water payments are made directly to your local council. They are not centralised. In addition, if the payment system was modernised, somebody at each council office could lose his/her job. Since nepotism still "rools OK", that will be resisted.

                But I suspect it will happen soon.

                    Thanks
                    I thought this was the case.
                    Not a major problem, I quite enjoy the stroll to Gerani to pay the bill, good excuse to pop in to one of the tavernas for a quick Mythos.

                        I’ve been paying the water bill at Alpha Bank for a good few years by direct debit

                            I think paying it by direct debit is different from paying your bill online – or am I wrong? I thought Creteboy meant that he wanted to set the Water Board up as a payee on his personal banking and pay using internet transfer. Maybe this is possible after all, so apologies if it is.

                                PS – Kefalas, if Syriza stick by their word, they intend to "modernize" everything by using IT – watch this space!
