5 tips to make your holiday package on your own

Greek islands ● 24 March 2018
 

Have you decided to spend your summer vacation in Greece? Congratulations for this top choice! Greece is a country, which offers you everything: rich history, delicious cuisine, gorgeous beaches, crystal sea and romantic villages. Especially the Greek islands are amazing!

The thing is that you don't have to buy a holiday package from a travel agency in Greece. Greece is a European country, absolutely safe, where you can easily travel on your own and create your customised schedule. Smart travellers can find the greatest deals in Greece in order to choose with flexibility what is best for them. Plus, in this way, you can visit also off-the-beaten-path destinations away from mass tourism.

Read here about the travel tips that help you to create on your own your perfect holiday package.

  


Book early

Booking early is the key to find super ferry and accommodation deals in Greece. Travelling in the low or the middle season (May, June, September and October) is a good choice to travel on a budget, but if you have heard about the famous Greek summer and you want to live this experience, booking your hotel in March or April will help you to find what is suitable for you at an unbeatable price.


Don't buy separated ferry tickets

If you want to visit more Greek islands to understand why island hopping in Greece is so popular, don't make the mistake to buy separated ferry tickets. The secret is to find a Greek Island Hopping ferry pass that includes several routes by ferry to many islands. Thus, you pay the price of only one ticket, you have the freedom to travel anytime you want and you avoid the chance of overbooking.


Travel at weekdays

Travelling at the weekdays is a smart way to find better accommodation deals even in July and August. Especially on the islands, which are located near large cities, such as the Saronic islands, Kythnos and Serifos near Athens or Thasos near Thessaloniki, the prices are higher on the weekends. But for you, during your holidays, there is no difference between weekdays and weekends.


Book your tickets online

When you organise your vacation on your own, you have to plan many details. This is good because you can create your dreamy holidays according to your preferences, but you may feel that you have to take care of so many things. If you book the ferry tickets online, there is no problem if you lose or forget your ticket. You just re-download it on your smartphone immediately.


Make your research

In my opinion, there is nothing more fascinating than being in search for your next destination. Reading articles, speaking with the locals in forums and looking at beautiful pictures is a lovely procedure you miss when you buy ready package holiday.
