If you are looking for the best place to take a summer holiday this year then look no further than Greece! Greece Holidays are always popular amongst holiday makers from the UK because you are almost always guaranteed to have great weather, good food and meet very friendly locals. It’s only a few hours away from the UK as well, so you know that you won’t have to be sitting on a place for a day or transiting through some random airport to make it to your final destination. Due to it’s close proximity to the UK, it is an ideal location for families that want a stress free holiday.
It’s easy to choose Greece as your holiday destination, once you do you need to be prepared. I don’t think there is every too much preparation for a holiday, so here are my essential Greece holiday tips. If you have been there yourself then don’t forget to add your tips below this article in the comment section:
Book all your travel in advance
If you are planning to take day trips or are going to be visiting a part of Greece that is far from the airport you arrive in then you need to book all of this travel in advance. This travel can either be in trains, planes or ferries. If you have gone through an agent to book your holiday then they should be able to help you book everything with ease. I know we hear a lot about the Greek economy slowing down but I can assure you that all domestic transport will be very busy at the weekends. You will also get a discount if you book in advance, perfect!
Pack the right gear
The clothes you bring are important, so make sure that you don’t pack a load of unnecessary clothing. If you are planning on a beach holiday then you don’t need to pack your whole wardrobe, a lot of light clothing is essential. Remember that even though you are on holiday you can’t walk around looking like you have just got out of bed, so if you want to visit some of the higher class establishments make sure that you have a decent pair of shoes and something nice to throw on.
Get ready for the heat
I know that the it is difficult to judge the weather, but if you are not going to be in Greece around September time then expect it to get very hot indeed. If you go there for the summertime it is going to get hot! SO make sure that you have sunglasses, a hat and some decent sun lotion. We all love the sun but we need to remember how much damage it can do to us if we are not careful.
