      To let you know in Heraklion airport (Crete) there were no water filling facilities. And we were told not to use water from the taps as it wasn’t fit for drinking. I am not keen on Crete tap water anyway (it has an almost salty minerally taste – I can’t get used to it, it seems to make you feel more thirsty after drinking it – you can buy bottled Crete water and it is the same – I think some hotels filter it or something to dispense to guests as it doesn’t seem as minerally from bars/food places as directly out of the tap) . Anyway bottled water was 0.5 euro for a 500ml bottle from the food places – so at least not a rip off (I think it was more expensive in duty free). Although I would have preferred if we could have got just one big bottle (say 1.5L) and decanted it to save plastic waste.

      Thank you again for a really useful site.

        There are still no water fountains at Heraklion, the water from the taps is still advised as not drinkable bby the staff and the restaurants will not fill a bottle for you.
        Bottled water has gone up significantly €5.90 for a 1 litre bottle of evian.

        Very poor for 2023!

          Everest at gate A1 sells 0.75l of Avra bottled water for €0.90. International brands are indeed way more expensive.

            It’s also 3.40 euros for a 330ml bottle! Until recently it used to be 50 cents. It’s an extremely busy and hot airport.

            In the extra Schengen part of departures. It’s possible that somewhere in departures 500ml bottles were available for a reasonable price, but I didn’t find any.
