January 2015: After a slow start for bookings for holidays in Greece in 2015, travel agents now report a surge in sales. Good exchange rates for the UK against the euro, some exceptional 'early-bird' booking deals and UK consumers shrugging off years of austerity are being cited as reasons for a revival in the market.
Holidays in the Greek islands last year look set to hit record levels with more than 20 million visitors reported so far and figures still to come in for the last quarter. If Greece can avoid political unrest and weather its economic troubles this year it could attract even more Greek holiday visitors.
The 2015 holiday season is picking up thanks to some very good deals on offer from some of the biggest tour operators as seen below.
