These bulbs must not be planted in soil before arriving in Crete.
Plants from your EU garden cannot be brought to another EU country and in fact you should even be careful when giving or receiving plants from a friendly neighbour!
Your safest bet would be to buy them in Crete to start with or even see if the grower's label has a web or email address and order them direct from them for delivery in Crete. Great way of getting good catalogs!
You can also email the UK Dept HERE IS THE EMAIL LINK and they are usually very willing to advise you of the best options.

The latest info, dated Dec 2007, HM Revenue & Customs Notice, states
"Within the EU, you can bring in any plant products -as long as they are grown in an EU country, are free from pests and diseases and are for your own consumption".
(For your own consumption means own use- not neccessarily to eat).
The above is for bringing plants into the UK.

You cannot just bring your own plants with you unless you can prove they are pest/disease free!

I can understand why you like tulips, being Dutch, but did you know there grow wild tulips in Crete? They are named " Tulipa doerfleri"
Maybe you find the next link of interest. It also prescribes some beautiful trips in the surrounding of Plakias.
