The European country has been the most-searched-for destination on Travelzoo’s UK site since 2018, pipping Spain, Italy and even the Caribbean to the post. "Greece is known for the breath-taking landscapes, crystal Greek beaches and beach taverns," explains James Clarke, the General Manager of Travelzoo UK. "Visitors are able to experience its serenity, enjoy the popular Mediterranean diet, soak in the rich history and enjoy its warm hospitality. Greece’s easy access and regular sunshine makes it a top pick for any tourist."
Travelzoo ran more than 90 different deals in Greece last year, and have so far offered almost 50 for 2019, including this incredible all-inclusive week in Corfu for less than £500.
The most popular places within Greece, Travelzoo told us, are Rhodes, Corfu, Crete and mainland Halkidiki, and they regularly have amazing deals across these gorgeous holiday destinations.
Take me away: Can’t wait for the right deal to come around again? Get Riviera Travel’s Greece brochure here for holiday inspiration to this fabulous destination.
Of course, you don’t just have to visit one of them. One of the best ways to see Greece is on an island-hopping cruise, like this one with Newmarket Holidays. The gorgeous MS Hera wends her way between Kefalonia, Lefkada and Ithica on this serene sailing, offering the opportunity to swim in crystal-clear waters and sunbathe on deck on those hot Greek afternoons.
Whatever your preference – whether you want to sail between the islands or explore ancient cities – Greece has proven it’s the ultimate holiday destination for us Brits.
