Building the Best Holiday in Greece

Holidaymakers, start booking your getaway: Greece’s economy may be in trouble, but that doesn’t mean that tourism is going to come to a complete halt. If anything the time is now to start traveling to the country. If you’ve never made holiday to Greece before, you’re truly in for a treat. Plenty of beaches, great sun, great people, and the food is out of this world. Some of the best wines in the world are found in the Greek Isles, and that alone is well worth taking the time to plan a trip.

Of course, if you’re looking for good deals it goes without saying that you need to do a little bit of research. Sensationalist headlines in the press means that everyone will be trying to get you to go to Greece for a holiday through t heir channels, which may or may not be the best deal. Here are a few things that you need to know in order to score the best deals, as well as have the best experience once you land.

holiday to Greece

First and foremost, make sure that you budget how much money you need to spend upfront. As the bailout situation for Greece looks dire, you have to also realize that infrastructure may take a bigger hit than you realize. For example, you probably think nothing about getting your money from a bank. But if you’re going to Greece, you’re going to have to think about taking the money you need with you. You cannot count on the exchange service to take care of you, and you will not be able to get money out of an ATM.

The solution? Carry cash with you into the country. Many in the hospitality industry are asking for cash up front anyway, so you might as well bring it with you. If you’re worried about reaching some kind of limit for traveling money as you enter or exit Greece, don’t worry. While there is no set limit on how much you can take in or out of the country, you still need to declare everything that you’re taking with you. So it makes perfect sense that you’d want to take what you can. [Read more…]
