The Greek Tourism Industry is expected to suffer a blow this year with less visitors expected this season as compared to last year. The luxury side of the market is however doing quite well thus far this season and is expected to surpass last years numbers. One of the reasons is the fact that better pricing is being offered by Hotel Owners on all major Greek Islands. According to a post in the Travel News Website, Greek Luxury Villa Rentals remain strong this season. The average price of a Luxury Retreats booking in Greece has decreased by 37 percent as compared to last year.
Dr. Andreas Andreadis, the president of the Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises (SETE), said, ‘We want to encourage international tourism and assure potential tourists that there has never been a better time to come to our country. We are trying to change the way our country and its economy is run, however, this is not going to affect the quality of a holiday.’
With Hoteliers and Villa owners being more aggressive with the pricing it will only be a matter of time before business resumes to normal levels on the Greek Islands, so take advantage of the Greek Island deals now.
