Why travel to Greece?

A country with a long and revered history and turbulent present, Greece has been a popular tourist destination for many years. Whether you’re looking to explore the ancient monuments of the Pantheon and Mount Olympus, or heading there on a Club 18-30 holiday, Greece can cater to your desires.

Despite the stereotype, plate smashing isn’t as widespread in Greece as you’d think, but you’ll still see it happening occasionally at weddings and other celebrations.

Why do I need Greece travel insurance?

  • Medical costs - Just in case you’re one of the 500 unlucky Brits who end up in hospital each year in Greece (according to Foreign & Commonwealth Office)
  • Travel delay - You could be covered if your outbound/inbound journey is delayed e.g. due to strikes and industrial action
  • Baggage cover - With Greece travel insurance your souvenir plates could be covered if they're smashed by an overly enthusiastic tourist

Get covered for:

    • Health insurance - The cost of emergency medical treatment could be covered
    • Activity holidays - Standard travel insurance might not cover things like scuba diving or rock climbing, so you may need additional cover
    • Cancellations - Just in case you're unable to go on your holiday or you have to cut your trip short because you're unwell

Greece: Checklist

- Strikes and demonstrations are common and can often be called at short notice, affecting public transport and links. To stay safe and avoid hassle, British nationals are advised to avoid demonstrations and stay up to date with local news.

- Hiring a vehicle – If you’re thinking of hiring a car, quad bike or moped, it’s strongly recommended you have valid insurance cover and appropriate safety equipment. Under Greek law, it’s required to wear a crash helmet on a moped, motorcycle and scooter. If you're in an accident, failure to wear a crash helmet could invalidate your travel insurance. To find out permitted speed limits and driving guidelines in Greece, take a look at our guide to driving in Greece.

- European Health Insurance Card – British nationals are entitled to necessary medical treatment (at a reduced cost or sometimes even for free) when travelling to European economic areas. It’s important to note that EHIC is not a replacement for Greek travel insurance, but it's simply extra protection in the event you get ill or injured while away. Don't forget to apply for EHIC for free.  

Greece: Did you know?

- In Greece, nodding your head means no.

- If you see Greeks clenching their hand and moving their arms sideways, don’t be scared, they're just waving. It is an insult to show the palm of the hand with fingers extended, so Greeks wave with their palms closed.

- Greece is the ‘home’ of western culture. Our ideas of democracy, justice and many of our philosophies come from Ancient Greece.

Sights to see in Greece include the Acropolis, Plakias, Kos and Corfu. Not to mention cities such as Athens, Hania and Iraklio.
