FAQs

Greece is considered one of the safest destination countries in the world. Travelers are, of course, advised to use the normal precautions that they would in any other European country.

Your children can really have the time of their lives here. Smiley faces and hospitality, family warmth and peace, security, untouched nature, and magnificent food give a unique combination, making Greece the number one family destination worldwide. Either way, mums and dads, be prepared to relax and have a good time in a country where everyone, young and old is a kid!

Greece is a European Union member; euros have been the official currency of Greece since 2001. Having some euros in your pocket when you arrive can give you peace of mind for the start of your trip. Banks will have the best exchange rates but your best bet in getting local currency is to use your debit card via ATMs located everywhere throughout Greece.

Although the official language is Greek, a large majority of people in the tourist industry speak English. English is also part of the standard school curriculum, therefore, most Greek’s will have a good command of the English language as well as a few other languages as well (ex. French, German, Italian, etc).

Greek is a particularly difficult language to pick up, so no one will be upset if you do not speak any Greek. Greeks are friendly people who are always eager to help and love it when they hear a stranger speaking their language. So, when planning your trip to Greece, try to learn a few common Greek words like ‘please’ (parakalo), ‘thank you’ (efharisto) and ‘hello’ (yasou) and you will get a favorable response as you try to communicate with the locals.

Street signs in the cities are typically bilingual, but if you’re heading further afield, it’s worth learning the Greek alphabet as well, to help you navigate.

Greece is a Member-State of the European Union, and has signed the Schengen Agreement. While traveling within the E.U., you only need your Identity card. However, a passport is necessary for a number of other transactions, such as currency exchange, purchases, etc.

Visas are not required by European citizens from countries that are part of the Schengen Area. Greece as a member of the Schengen Agreement, has abolished controls on common internal lands, at air and sea borders and allows Member-State citizens to travel around without a visa for a short stay period of up to three (3) months. However, keep in mind that airlines and other carriers require a valid passport and/or identity card.

Citizens coming from countries that have not yet joined the Schengen Area may require a visa to enter Greece. The E.U. visitors from these countries can acquire further information from the Hellenic Embassies or Consulates in their countries, or from their travel agencies. Before visiting Greece, please consult the detailed information on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website and find out whether you require a Visa. Note: During your stay in Greece, if you require a Visa, you are advised to have suitable insurance coverage for emergency medical or other needs.
