Why now is a good time to visit Greece

Greece ● 25 September 2017
 

Greece was always a perfect place to visit on a reasonable budget. Great accommodation deals in Greece, low-budget packages, small, unexplored and cheap islands and affordable Greek ferry tickets  make Greece the place to be for the budget traveller. Now, Greece is something more than just a budget destination. It is a country, which the last years combines high-quality touristic services with unbelievable prices and hospitality you have never met before.



Greece continues to be a budget destination due to the economic crisis. The country has now stability, and it is absolutely safe, but the travel agents and the hotels in Greece offer amazing deals even in popular islands, like Mykonos, Crete, Zakynthos and Corfu. Plus, nowadays, there are also many hostels in Greece due to the thousands of young people, who come to Greece. The good news is that you can find super Greek hostel deals, and spend low-budget but high-quality holidays. Furthermore, thanks to the increase of tourism, new, unspoiled destinations have become popular, and you can find places and islands for every taste, where you can relax and spend off-the-beaten-path vacations.

Island-hopping is also another experience, which has been developed the last years in Greece and is the new trend in our country. Island-hopping is an experience that you can only have in the Greek islands thanks to their location and the special conditions of the Aegean and the Ionian Sea. Greece is blessed with thousands of islands of every kind. Developed or unspoiled, with green and mild or with wild and dry landscape, with traditional towns or with unexplored small villages, the Greek islands are unique all over the world, and one thing is for sure. There is no chance that you can't find your dream island because there are islands for every taste in a very close distance to each other. Pick your favourite group of islands, such as Cyclades, Sporades, Dodecanese, Saronic Islands or Ionian Islands, and have the ultimate experience of Greek summer with the Hostelbay Island Pass, which makes island-hopping very affordable giving you the opportunity to visit up to 7 islands and pay only for one!

Mykonos

However, if you read this article now in autumn, you may wonder how to wait until the next summer. Of course, it is never too early to book your summer vacations and have something to wait in the cold winter, but maybe you should consider an alternative option. Greece is an excellent choice to travel off-season. The weather is still warm and sunny, people are relaxed and hospitable, and the sea is calm. Moreover, the rich history and culture of Greece makes it impossible to get bored even if you don't want to swim. Can you imagine anything better than exploring ancient open-air sites without the danger of a heat- or sunstroke?
