- (29/06/2015) Holidaymakers planning or already enjoying a trip to Greece this summer will naturally be worried with the latest news about the situation prevailing in Greece. We would like to inform you that nothing changes for you for the worse.
First of all, anyone visiting or about to visit Greece will not be affected by the measures to limit bank withdrawals newly imposed by the Greek government, as the capital control measures announced do not apply to those wishing to make transactions and withdrawals with a credit card issued in their home country. Travelers' credit cards are normally accepted by stores and ATMs. No money restrictions apply on foreign citizens. As a precautionary measure, we recommend that you carry with you more than one means of payment (cash, debit cards, credit cards). In addition, an extra amount of cash would seem useful due to minor to medium queues that might occur at ATM machines.
In addition, public transportation in Athens is free for both citizens and visitors until the 6th of July including the use of metro railway, public buses, Athens-Piraeus Electric Railways and trolleybuses. Free transportation does not apply to the transfer from or to the Athens Airport and to the use of the Athens Suburban Railway. It does not also address the transportation in Thessaloniki and other rural cities, where transport is performed by private entities.
No strikes lie ahead while the ones scheduled the previous days are being cancelled now. Greek tourism authorities informed us that the islands and Greek mainland have fuel sufficiency and no shortages in any supplies are observed. The situation has no implications on the operation of our Agency and our collaborators. Hotels, restaurants, museums and public means of transportation operate normally.
The Greek people are still as warm and hospitable as ever.
We continuously monitor the situation and travel advices worldwide, in order to keep travelers informed and our guests' vacations secure.
