Cheap Holidays Available In Greece From Just £11 A Night As Hotels Slash Prices
If you're dreaming of a week in the sun, sitting by a pool sipping on a piña colada or lounging on a beach all day, look no further than Greece.
Since the country reopened its borders on 1st July, there are some serious bargains to be had. In fact, many hotels and apartments have slashed prices in a bid to entice holidaymakers back to the islands.
For example, head over to Booking.com and you'll find hundreds of deals - such as a week in Rhodes at the beginning of August for £11 per person per night or a hotel in Crete for £13.50 per person per night.
Some of the more expensive and luxe islands, such as Mykonos and Santorini, have also slashed their rates too.
For example, you can stay at hotels in Mykonos for as little as £38 per night, or Santorini for £25 per night - which is a total bargain considering the peak dates.
And flights to Greece - notoriously more expensive than some other European countries - are pretty cheap too.
For the same week, you can fly from London to Rhodes for £63 return, or to Corfu for £64. Meanwhile, return flights from London to Crete are as low as £79 and to Zante from £81.
Last month, Greece's Prime Minister announced that transportation tax - which includes flights to the country - would be slashed almost in half, from 24 per cent to 13 per cent.

So basically, a week on one of the dreamy Greek islands won't upset your bank balance too much at all.
However, if you are planning on visiting Greece, it's important to be aware of some of the measures and restrictions in place.
It's reported that visitors from the UK may be tested on arrival, and if positive test results begin to rise, Brits could be banned from entering.
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office advise: "If you travel to Greece, you will need to complete a Passenger Locator Form at least 48 hours before travel. Failure to do so in advance may result in your carrier not allowing you to travel, a 500 Euro fine on arrival or the Greek authorities not allowing you to enter the country.
"You may be required to take a test for coronavirus (COVID-19) and undergo a period of self-isolation."
