Description

Greece is famous for its gorgeous beaches, fascinating history and Mediterranean cuisine which make it a hugely attractive destination for all types of holidaymakers, with English spoken by most in the main towns and tourist destinations.

May to September is the ideal time to visit and enjoy the warm Mediterranean climate with temperatures around 27oC and 12 hours of sunshine a day, perfect weather for sight-seeing, sunbathing or any number of both land and water sports and activities, from diving, wind surfing and other water sports, to mountain biking, tennis or walking. The mainland mountainous areas often see snow in the winter months.
There are around 6,000 islands and islets, all with stunning stretches of coastline. Each island has its own character. Crete, the birthplace of Zeus and the largest of the islands or Rhodes, a beautiful medieval town are perfect for a bit of history.  
Corfu, Preveza and Kefalonia are home to lush greenery and turquoise waters, or Santorini, voted the number one destination in Greece. Kos is a combination of beaches, lush vegetation and historical sites such as the tree of Hippocrates or the medieval castle. Skiathos, the film setting for Mamma Mia is a popular destination due to its beauty and charm. 
The Greek cuisine is popular, restaurants are called ‘tavernas’ and often offer a meze menu is a collection of small dishes similar to Spanish tapas, seafood is common and drinks too - Greece is one of the oldest civilisations to make wine and ouzo is an anis flavoured liquor. Different islands and regions have their own speciality dishes. Nightlife to suit every taste can be found in the main towns of the most popular islands, from bars playing live traditional music, to clubs open all night long.

Flights

The Charter Flight Centre normally acts as retail agents for ATOL holders. The ATOL number will be shown on your confirmation and this means you are financially protected under the ATOL scheme. We also sell flights under our own ATOL or as a ticket provider for recognised airlines.

There may be a discrepancy between the initial price and the final price this is because of the way we gather pricing data from suppliers, a full costing will always be given before confirmation. There is a handling fee of 2.5% if you pay by credit card; there is no extra fee if you pay by debit card.

Flight Timings

Timings and dates shown are correct to the best of our knowledge. However, due to the volume of flights in our database there can occasionally be some data errors. All timings will be confirmed at time of booking.

Please note that for flights departing in the early hours of the morning the date given is sometimes the check-in date. In this case the flight will actually depart the day after the date displayed. Full timings will be confirmed if you go through to book online, or by calling our reservations team on 020 8714 0010.

Price Match

We work very hard to make our prices competitive and judging by our feedback we get it right most of the time. If you do find a price on a competitor’s website that is cheaper than ours then please give us a call on 020 8714 0010 and we will do our best to beat it, no guarantees but sometimes a bit of human intervention is a good thing.

We welcome groups of any size; call our experienced sales staff on 020 8714 0010 who will be happy to talk to you about your group booking. Booking a group can sometimes be hard work; we always recommend you 'phone us as we can help remove the hassle.
