Is it safe to travel in Greece during the economic crisis?

Greece ● 18 October 2017
 

Greece has become popular lately. Thousands of tourists come in Greece to admire its significant ancient sites, taste its delicious cuisine that combines elements from West and East, swim in its turquoise waters, sunbathe under its warm sun on stunning beaches with soft golden sand, walk around the romantic pebbled streets of its wonderful villages and discover the aura of the Greek islands. Greece is a dream trip for many people, but others still wonder if Greece is a safe destination.

The truth is that Greece has become internationally known not only for its beauties but also for its economic crisis since 2009. Now, after 8 years, everybody knows Greece, and that is maybe an explanation of the continuing increase of tourism in the country. From 10 million tourists in 2009, the number of travellers in Greece in 2017 was 30 millions. Is that a coincidence?

The answer is no, this increase is not a coincidence. Greece is a safe country even during its hard economic crisis. All travellers that have come here know this fact, and that's why they visit our country again and again. Economic crisis has nothing to do with your safety. Yes, sometimes in the large cities, take place demonstrations against austerity measures. But this will not affect you. These demonstrations are peaceful, and plus, after so many years, have fallen off.

In fact, travelling in Greece these days is not only safe but also very smart. Greece has all the facilities you should expect from a European touristic country, and the good news is that they are being offered at amazing prices. Greece was always a cheaper travel destination than France, Spain or Italy for instance. But due to the economic crisis, prices are nowadays lower than ever. Even in the most popular Greek islands, such as Mykonos, Rhodes and Crete, you can find super accommodation deals in Greece in modern Greek hotels for less than 50€ per night in a double room. Available are also ferry tickets deals, such as Greek island passes that give you the opportunity to discover the fascinating experience of Greek Island Hopping without having to pay separated tickets to travel between the islands.

Greek people welcome the travellers in their country because they appreciate this source of income. The prices are cheap not only in Greek hotels and ferry tickets. Food, public transport and entertainment have also very reasonable prices, giving you the opportunity for affordable vacations.

Greece is a safe European country with great experience in touristic sector. Economic crisis made it only cheaper and more hospitable. What are you waiting for?
