Greece at a Glance

Can I travel to Greece this year?

Greece is open to American travelers. Travelers over five years old that have not been vaccinated must present a negative PCR test for entry. Visitors with proof of Covid-19 vaccination at least 14 days before arrival to Greece do not need to present a negative test. While Greece is currently in lockdown, it is expected that restrictions will lift by mid-May, and your Zicasso travel specialist can update you with further details.

Entry requirements are subject to change, and your Zicasso travel specialist can provide updated information at the time of your inquiry.

How far in advance should I plan a Greece vacation?

For 2021, getting your plans started is essential for the success of your vacation. With increased demand and the impacts of postponed trips from 2020 and 2021, booking soon will give you the best options for your accommodations and activities.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, our general advice was to book 6-8 months in advance. For popular islands like Santorini, with historically high demand and limited availability, planning up to 12 months in advance was our recommendation.

As we emerge from the pandemic and global travel resumes, our Greece travel specialists are ready to help you plan your trip for 2021, 2022, and 2023. Make your plans now, and book when you are ready.

How do I plan my trip to Greece?

You can still book your next trip through Zicasso for travel in 2021, 2022 or 2023. Visiting a new country raises plenty of questions, and travel after Covid-19 may be different.

“Will I need a rental vehicle in the area I plan on visiting or is the public transportation sufficient?” “How much do daily expenses actually cost?” “Are ferries on time?” “Are there safety procedures in place at my accommodations?” Your travel specialist can answer these questions and more. A travel expert can also handle any emergency that may arise during your vacation — everything from a missed flight connection to a hotel that closes unexpectedly.

When is the best time to visit Greece?

The best time to visit Greece is between May and July and September to October. August is often the busiest and hottest month of the year in Greece.

You will have the best time visiting the Greek islands between June and September due to the warm summer temperatures and vibrant lifestyles that take place during these months. Outside of the summer months, hotels and restaurants on the islands often close down for the shoulder and winter seasons.

What to Consider When Traveling Through Greece

Travel considerations during your Greece vacation include safety, ease of logistics, and accessibility. The following information offers our recommendations on what to consider:

Is Greece Safe for Travel?

Greece is very safe. During your Greece tour, you will find the people and the country welcoming and eager to share their culture. As anywhere, pickpocketing can be a concern, especially in larger tourist destinations like Athens. Healthwise, there are no concerns regarding the general safety of eating and drinking throughout Greece.

Which airports should I be looking at?

For most travelers, the most convenient airport is Athens. The second most accessible airport to fly in or out of in Greece is Crete’s Heraklion Airport (HER). The top active airports in Greece are:

  • Athens (ATH)
  • Heraklion (HER)
  • Thessaloniki (SKG)

Does Zicasso assist with travel insurance?
