Greece is one of the best travel destinations for Germans, and not without reason: the country enchants travelers with its beautiful bays, the second longest coast in Europe and numerous sights. Many holidaymakers are expected to visit Greece again this year. Holidays in Greece will thrive in the summer, according to Christine Heinen, a spokeswoman for the German Travel Association (DRV).

Book an all-inclusive holiday in Greece – pay attention to it

Crete, Rhodes, Mykonos, Kos, Corfu, Zakynthos or the Greek mainland: in 2022, major German tour operators will offer guided tours of all popular travel destinations in Greece. Due to the Corona pandemic and the war in Ukraine, DRV advises travelers to choose the usually more expensive Flex tariff when booking.

In the event of an infection or an escalating war situation, you can cancel or rebook the flight at short notice and do not have to bear the costs – depending on the provider without giving reasons, free of charge or at an additional cost.

The war in Ukraine is currently causing crude oil prices to rise. This can also have an impact on airline ticket prices, because kerosene, jet fuel, is also made from crude oil. However, it is not currently possible to predict exactly how airline ticket prices will develop.

Whether prices will rise now, later, or not at all, says DRV spokeswoman Kirsten Heinen. The effect on airline prices is therefore very individual. According to the expert, package tours have proven price stability in the past. This varies with individual flight seats.
