Greece is one of the main travel destinations for Germans, and not without reason: the country enchants travelers with its beautiful bays, the second longest coastline in Europe and many sights. And this year too many vacationers are expected in Greece. Holidays in Greece will increase in the summer, according to Kerstin Heinen, a spokesperson for the German Travel Association (DRV).

Book a vacation package in Greece – you need to pay attention to this

Crete, Rhodes, Mykonos, Kos, Corfu, Zakynthos or mainland Greece: in 2022 the main German tour operators will offer tour packages to all the most popular travel destinations in Greece. Due to the crown pandemic and the war in Ukraine, the DRV advises travelers to opt for the usually slightly more expensive Flex fare when booking.

In the event of an escalation of the infection or a war situation, you can cancel or rebook your trip at short notice and you do not have to bear the costs, depending on the provider without giving reasons, for free or at an additional cost.

Holidays in Greece: the flight is so expensive

The war in Ukraine is currently causing crude oil prices to skyrocket. This can also have an impact on airline ticket prices, since kerosene, the jet fuel, is also produced from crude oil. However, it is currently not possible to predict exactly how air fares will develop.

It cannot yet be specifically said whether prices will rise now, later or not at all, says DRV spokesperson Kerstin Heinen. The influence on airline prices is too individual for that. According to the expert, in the past the tour packages have proved to be stable in price. This is different with single flight seats.
