What you need to know before flying to Greece in a nutshell

The Greek world

Cheap flights to Greece make this ancient country an affordable place for travelling on a budget. From sandy beaches and blue seas and a dramatic landscape to historical sites and legendary Greek cuisine, it’s very much a worthwhile destination.

Natural wonders

Greece’s main draw is its natural beauty with mountainous islands, sandy beaches and blue skies. Meteora is a perfect example of a majestic and unique geographical landscape with its stunning rock pillars and monasteries built at the top, providing picturesque views. The Island of Santorini, known for its beautiful sunsets and white sugar-cube houses is also a natural wonder shaped by ancient volcanic eruption. Even the lesser-known island of Koufonisia is not one to miss with its white sandy beaches and shallow, clear blue water.

The ancient world

Known as the ‘cradle of Western Civilisation’, Greece has plenty to offer when it comes to history. With 18 UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Acropolis and the Agora of Athens, and museums such as the Acropolis Museum in Athens, there is no shortage of attractions. The Temple of Apollo at Delphi on Mount Parnassus in Pythia is known as the centre of the ancient Greek world. There are ancient stadiums, theatres and temples all across the country to keep the historically-minded visitor fascinated.

Greek dishes

Of course, no holiday in Greece is complete without trying its local cuisine and ingredients. You can savour local flavours from authentic feta cheese and olive oil to bread baked with olives, fresh fish and dishes like moussaka and kolokithokeftedes – courgette fritters.

When to go

Greece overall enjoys a Mediterranean climate of hot dry summers and mild wet winters, although its diverse landscape and geography gives each region its own climate. On average, winters can see temperatures drop as low as four degrees Celsius while summer temperatures rise up to 30 degrees Celsius. The north-western and central mountainous regions experience snowfall while the islands can be from six to eight degrees Celsius cooler than the mainland.

The best time to visit Greece on a budget is during the off-peak seasons in spring and autumn, when the weather is most pleasant and airfare prices are low. Spring is most suitable for hiking and sightseeing while autumn is a good time to go dolphin watching. Keep in mind that prices rise during Greece’s most popular holidays, Easter and St George’s Day in April, and the feast of the Assumption in the middle of August.

The summer season is Greece’s hottest and most popular time to visit. During this time, airfare rates and hotels costs are higher, though most attractions, shops and transportation operate throughout long hours through most of the day. Winter experiences fewer crowds, and therefore cheaper prices, which makes it the perfect time to visit popular ruins and sites. Winter is also great for skiing in the mountains.

Airports and airlines

Greece has millions of visitors arriving into the country every year, most notably at its two busiest international airports, Athens International Airport and Heraklion International Airport in Crete. These airports also service domestic flights to other popular Greek destinations such as Santorini and Mykonos.

The best time to book Greece flights is 60 to 90 days in advance, or to find last-minute deals for low prices. With Netflights, you can find cheap flights by entering your departure city, destination airport and dates into the search bar and calendar. View prices by ‘Best airline price’ or ‘Flexible dates’ and tailor the choices to your preference by time, number of stopovers and airlines.

Netflights lets you book from a variety of well-reputed airlines such as Aegean Airlines, Air France, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Lufthansa, SN Brussels, Swiss Airlines and Turkish Airlines. London’s Heathrow and Gatwick Airports operate both direct and indirect flights to Greece from the UK while other airports such as Manchester Airport and Glasgow International Airport operate direct flights only during the summer months.
