"Dear Guests ,

this year there are direct flights to Volos from Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Munich, and Vienna. There are also flights to Skiathos from Luton, Gatwick and Stansted, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, and Nottingham.
After spending time in Greece this summer, I’ve constantly been slammed by questions from travelers with one eye on their vacations and another on Greece’s financial crisis.
Is it safe to travel to Greece right now?
