Impact of the Greece crisis on travel from Directline Holidays

Quote from Managing Director Maria Whiteman:

“Currently the FCO have no travel restrictions in place and none of our partners have reported any concerns but we always advise holiday makers take due care when travelling out to regions where unrest has been reported.

It is of course possible that holiday-makers could be put off by demonstrations or holiday security but given that the islands remain mainly unaffected and historically travel hasn’t dipped on the back of unrest we aren’t anticipating a decline.

At the moment all programmes and schedules from tour operators remain the same for 2013 and capacity hasn’t been cut which is an early indicator that the destination in the near term remains unaffected.

The derestriction of the currency and debt problem is likely to make holiday providers prices more competitive so it could be a good time for holiday-makers looking to pick up a bargain. Prices today on the DLH website show four star holidays to Greece from as little as £176.”
