Our top 10 tips to save money when travelling in Greece

Greece ● 18 October 2017
 

Travelling in Greece and on the Greek islands is a dream trip for many people. Stunning beaches, delicious cuisine, long and rich history, hospitable people, whitewashed villages. Can you imagine a better scenery for your vacations? However, you may think that this journey is out of your budget, but this is not true. Greece is a cheap country, ideal for budget vacations. With these travel tips, you can visit Greece on a budget and plan affordable holidays in Greece that will be just unforgettable.

1. Find a luxury hostel

The new trend among budget travellers is called luxury hostels. They are designer hostels with amazing facilities and create a top experience for you. You can find luxury hostels in Greece and enjoy luxury cheap holidays at unbelievable prices.

2. Don't visit Greece during summer

Well, this travel tip may sound awkward, but the thing is that Greece is a top summer destination, and that has as a result high prices. If you visit Greece off-season, you will have the opportunity to find super accommodation deals in Greece that will make your trip really cheap. Plus, the weather is still sunny and warm, and you can easily swim and sunbathe on the astonishing Greek beaches.


3. Find inclusive passes for museums and transportation

The key to save money is not to pay separated tickets. Thus, you should find inclusive passes to museums and transportation tickets. For instance, in Athens, there is an all-inclusive ticket for all the archaeological sites, while you can also find the Greek Island Pass to have the ultimate experience of Greek Island Hopping and visit more islands by paying only one ticket.

4. Walk and use local transport

In Greece, the historical centre of the cities is not very big, and the points of interest are located in a close distance to each other. Thus, you can easily walk, but local transport is also very cheap.

5. Use mobile internet

Avoid high roaming charges by using the Wi-Fi you will find in literally every café, bar and restaurant in Greece. It is totally free!


6. Stay away from the city centre

Almost in every place on earth, prices in hotels, bars and restaurants are higher in the city centre than in other districts. Because in Greece the distances are not very long, you can stay in a Greek hotel outside the city centre and walk or take a bus if you want to explore the best sites.

7. Cook in your hostels

Most hostels in Greece offer a kitchen where you can prepare your meal. This tip will save you a lot of money and help you meet new people.

8. Eat souvlaki

Souvlaki is the ultimate street food of Greece. Delicious, nutritious and very cheap. It is meat with vegetables, such as onions and tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce wrapped in pita, and it costs less than 2€!

9. Eat and drink in the park

Take souvlaki and eat it in the park. In Greece, public drinking is allowed, so you can drink a beer and enjoy the sunny weather.

10. Take a snack from a bakery

Bakeries in Greece offer delicious snacks, such as pies and sandwiches, at very reasonable prices. For example, for a spinach pie, you have to pay only 1€!
