Peak season:

The climate in Greece is predominantly Mediterranean; producing hot, dry summers and cold, wet winters. However the country’s regions have unique geographies and micro-climates, which is why when booking flights to Greece, it may be useful to check the weather within the relevant region.

An exception is the Halkidiki peninsula and the Samothraki and Thassos islands where the most popular months to book flight tickets are July and August.

Off season:

Greece’s off season period is between late September and late April and particularly from December to March, which are the country’s coldest months when temperatures can fall below 0°C. During this period, although it is possible to find cheap flights to Greece, reduced ferry services to the islands may be a challenge. Something that not many people know however, is that Greece is also a skier’s paradise.

When is the best time to book a flight to Greece?

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Greece?

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

After you book flights to Greece, you could consider ways to get from the airport to your destination. Certain hotels provide for pre-arranged airport transfers. Other standard options include metre taxis and buses. Finding transport to the islands is somewhat trickier than finding the cheapest flight tickets. The handiest tip is to buy ferry tickets in the port of departure on the day of travel in order to avoid complications. Catamarans and hydrofoils however can be booked in advance. An alternative is to charter a boat or yacht (with or without a skipper).
