Low Budget Island Hopping in Greece

Greek Islands ● 02 January 2018
 

Low budget vacations is the dream of every traveller. Who doesn't want to save money during the holidays in order to afford another trip next year? Greek Island Hopping is ideal for budget travellers and can be affordable. With these travel tips, you can enjoy budget vacation in Greece, discover the wonderful Greek islands and save money for next summer and other gorgeous islands.

Budget holidays

Ferry tickets

If you want not to pay a fortune in ferry tickets, book them early or travel by boat, which is cheaper than ferry. However, boats are also slower than ferries, and there is the possibility that ferry tickets are expensive even if you book them three months before departure. In that case, it is wise to buy Greek Island Pass, a ferry ticket, which is perfect for flexible travellers. You pay the price of only one ticket and one route, but you can make several routes to many Greek islands whenever you want. Is there any greater flexibility and affordable choice?

Accommodation

In most touristic islands of Greece, such as Mykonos, Santorini, Zakynthos, Crete, Rhodes and Corfu, you can find quality hostels that guarantee you a secure, clean, budget and convenient accommodation. In summer, you will be the whole day on the beach, so if you want to save money, it is a pity to stay at a luxury hotel. Just pick the right hostel in the location you want, and spend money in other activities, such as drinks, water sports, shopping and even more islands!

Food

Souvlaki is an excellent option for food during your Greek Island Hopping. Every island of Greece has several traditional taverns that prepare souvlaki, this delicious sandwich with meat, pommes frites, vegetables and tzatziki. It costs less than 2€, is delicious and nutritious. Plus, only a few days are not enough to get bored of souvlaki. Alternatively, seafood is also cheap on the Greek islands, especially on untouched islands, where local people are still fishermen.

Drinks

We know that during your Greek Island Hopping, you want to have fun, drink, meet new people and flirt. However, you think about your budget and how many drinks per day you can afford. Well, the good news is that you can find cheap drinks in Greece, but you should definitely stay away from cocktails. Cocktails is the new must in Greece, and in popular islands, you can literally find dozens of cocktail bars. However, these beverages can cost even 12 or 13€! Wine, beers and topical Greek alcoholic beverages, such as ouzo and raki, cost less and are as strong or even stronger than the cocktails. Public drinking is allowed in Greece, so you can easily buy drinks from the mini market and have fun on the beach.
