Greece Destination Guide

Getting to, from and around Greece

Direct flights to Greece from the UK vary from 3 and a half to 4 hours, depending on your destination. Charter, scheduled and low-cost airlines offer direct flights so it's worth shopping around. With flights from a number of regional airports in the UK like Belfast, Glasgow and Cardiff, it's also easy to book a Jet2 holiday to Greece from a number of regional airports using just Jet2 flights.

You can also explore the Greek Islands by boat, either by ferry, driving yourself around or why not enjoy a cruise that takes you into the ports and offers various excursions for passengers. If you prefer being a bit more active than just lying on the stunning beaches, island hopping around some of the most popular Greek islands can be incredibly fun.

Once on land, getting around the mainland or islands is easiest done by car, allowing you to explore at your own pace. It's worth booking your car hire in advance and picking it up from the airport, although if you only want a car for a day or two, your hotel can also help you book a local on.

If it's a beach holiday you are after, or you just fancy spending most of your time by the pool and around your hotel, airport coach transfers can be organised in advance to take you between the island's airport and your hotel. This may be included within your flight inclusive package if you're booking with someone like TUI or Jet2holidays so check to see what's included.

Public Transport

Some areas like Athens may have strong transport links, however, once you get out to the islands, these aren't as frequent or accessible. Check your specific island to see what's the best way to get around.


While the do cost more, if you've not hired a car, taking a taxi is inevitably the next easiest in terms of freedom. If you're a group of friends looking to head from your hotel to Faliraki for a night, for example, sharing the cost between a few of you can make this much more affordable.

Holiday Types

If you love sunshine, Greece is for you, and it's such a versatile country that it's great for all types of holidaymakers.

All Inclusive

All inclusive holidays to Greece are a fantastic way to ensure you don't spend any more of your budget than you need to, especially for families. With top resorts offering a range of entertainment and facilities, as well as buffet restaurants catering to families and kids, you've got plenty to choose from.

Half Board

Having that little bit of flexibility can make all the difference on holiday, allowing you to take advantage of the buffet meals and still giving you the option to head out and explore the restaurants.

Bed & Breakfast

Plenty of Greece's hotels offer a B&B board basis.

Self Catering

There is plenty of cheap accommodation ranging from Airbnb apartments to self catering villas. Going self catering in Greece gives you the opportunity to try all the fantastic tavernas.

Last Minute

With so much choice, last minute holidays to Greece are a great way to save money and get away to enjoy the sunshine. Flights from across the UK with Ryanair, Jet2 and easyJet make it so easy to grab a late deal to the stunning Greek Islands.

Greek Villa Holidays

One of the most fabulous ways to experience life in Greece is on a Greek villa holiday. There really is nothing quite like enjoying your own place and space, dipping your toes into your own private pool, and hiring a car to discover the islands in your own way.

When To Go

The typical holiday season for Greece runs from April through to October, when you'll find most hotels open for business. The summer months of July and August are busiest, particularly with families on school holidays. This is also the hottest time of year when temperatures reach 30C and there's around 12 hours of sunshine a day.

While the winter months are cooler, they are still warmer than the UK and most of the Greek Islands enjoy an average of 5 hours of sunshine a day, however expect many hotels, bars and restaurants to be closed between November and March.

Often the most ideal time is June or September when the weather is lovely and warm, the sun shines most days and the bars, restaurants and attractions are open.

Things to do in Greece

From traditional villages surrounded by olive groves to ancient ruins and iconic landmarks, there is so much to Greece than just the gorgeous beach resorts and crystal clear waters. For a sunny destination, there really is something for everyone and each area of Greece has it's own little quirks.

For a short city break or if you're in need of some culture, Athens makes for a fantastic cheap weekend break, offering sunshine, history and plenty of activities. If it's a relaxing beach holiday, then there's plenty to choose from. From the steep hills and stunning views on Santorini, to the gorgeous beaches of Zante, be sure to pick your beach holiday destination wisely. If on the other hand you are here to party, Mykonos has become the self-proclaimed party island in Greece, with a vibrant atmosphere, ideal for a clubbing beach holiday with your mates.

Water Parks

Many of the big holiday islands have an exciting water park to enjoy. Watercity Waterpark in Crete, Aqualand Corfu and Tsilivi Waterpark in Zakynthos are some of best rated and well worth checking out. Bear in mind that most water parks will close for the winter season, so make sure you plan ahead.

Where to stay in Greece

From budget 2-star apartments to luxury 5-star hotels, the range of accommodation in Greece is more than enough. It's worth taking into consideration why you are visiting Greece before you pick the island you want to stay at and book a holiday or hotel. For an added level of luxury, many hotels in Greece have swim up rooms, like the Ikos Dassia and the Akron Seascape Resort.

Athens is great for a city break, while Mykonos is more of a party island, or if you're after something much more chilled and quiet, the island of Santorini is probably the ideal holiday location for you.


The Greek island of Kefalonia has been a family holiday favourite for decades with lots of smaller hotels, which mean you don't get lost amongst the crowds. Hotels like the Kefalonia Bay Palace and Hotel San Giorgio are great places to start.


Rhodes is another firm favourite place to stay in Greece. While places like Zante Town and Faliraki are well known for their nightlife and parties, quieter areas like Lindos, Plimmiri and even Kolymbia provide excellent hotels with a few bars and restaurants around.
