Visit Greece for Less

  1. Eat cheap – Of course I am a fan of eating and trying a lot of different local foods, however turn to gyros and other street foods for the majority of your day, saving one special / larger meal of the day. This not only helps you save money, but as well allows you to try a variety of local cuisines for less.
  2. Take the Train / Rent a quad – Pretty straight forward, it is cheaper than a car rental or taxi. This is one of my favorite tips it you are on an island. It is cheap to rent a quad for the day and allows you to zip around the islands multiple tips throughout the day(s).
  3. Get off the beaten path – Greece is a cheap country and even cheaper when you get out of the touristy Greek islands or popular destinations. Head off the beaten path and you will usually see prices drop by 30% or more.
  4. Ferries – Greece’s inter-island ferries can get quite expensive if you are visiting a lot of them. Either taking an overnight ferry or a very early morning ferry can help you save pretty significantly. In addition, if time permits, book your ferry tickets early to save even further.  
  5. Visit in the off-season – August is the most expensive month, so if you can arrange for a visit before June, its a given that you will save deeply on all costs; from hotels, flights, tours, ferries, etc. We went in February and quite honestly, I loved it. It wasn’t too crowded, the weather was nice (compared to February in NYC), prices were less….overall, a bargain.

Since I am working already, I think I can achieve that dream anytime soon. Thanks for the tips, by the way! Santorini will be my first stuff.
