Many thought the economic challenges that Greece faced in the past year would have deterred travellers. This has not been the case for Contiki, which experienced a 10% increase (from 2014) in holiday bookings for Greece.
Lonergan Research reveals that Greece is very high on holiday wish lists, with one in three Australians aged 18-35 looking to travel to Greece in the next three to four years.
Due to the high demand for Greece in 2016, Contiki has introduced three new itineraries. There’s a 10-day Mediterranean Escape, a 21-day Mediterranean Escape plus Greek Island Hopping and a 14-day Mediterranean Escape plus Greek Island Cruising trip.
For further exploration into the treasures of the Eastern Med, Contiki also offers a 9-day Eastern Mediterranean Cruising package, beginning and ending in Athens with stops in Mykonos, Santorini, Milos, Syos, Samos and Kos as well as Kusadasi and Cesme in Turkey.
