How to plan an affordable trip to Greece?Tips and tricks

When it comes to visiting Greece, people only think about Santorini, blue and white architecture and luxury! A trip to Greece sounds super expensive and out-of-budget, however, if you know how to go about it, you’ll end up saving some great buck without compromising on comfort.

Here are some trips and tricks on making your trip to Greece pocket-friendly and worthy of all your currency notes!

Book your flights in advance

Rule number one for any travel, plan your trip ahead of time and book your flights in advance (preferably refundable given the pandemic situation. This always helps and saves some huge bucks.

Rent a moped to explore the island

One of the best and affordable ways to explore the pretty Greek islands is on a moped. There are several rental firms offering a moped (light motorcycles) which are easy to drive and low on pockets!

Look for free walking tours around the city

Yes, you read that right! A number of travel operators offer free walking tours in Athens city centre where you can discover some epic monuments and ancient historical landmarks of Greece, including Acropolis and Temple of Olympian Zeus. These tours are amazing and take tourists to places where no vehicle can reach.

Prefer visiting non-touristy islands

Greece is synonymous with blue and white architecture and colourful party islands such as Mykonos and Santorini. But the country is home to some hidden gems which are less-explored and swoon-worthy! Choose to visit Corfu and Milos which are magical and away from maddening crowds

Choose off-season time

If you are a flexible traveller who wishes to explore the country without splurging, the best time to visit Greece would be off season. During this time, a number of budget airlines operate from various Asian countries. Greece remains crowded during summers from June to August and accommodation price, food and ferry tickets, everything remains quite high. So consider the remaining months when these prices are affordable.

Choose a homestay

You can save a lot by choosing a homestay accommodation in Greece. It is also one of the best ways to explore and understand the local culture, traditions and history. Also, homestays with food are super affordable!

Book overnight ferries in advance

Greece is home to some incredibly beautiful islands in the world. If you wish to save money, make sure you book overnight ferries in advance for the islands you wish to visit. Though the duration is double, you’ll save almost half the cost. Also the night ocean views are absolutely dreamy!
