I am booked to travel to a destination included in the Green List, can I still go?

Government advice is currently to avoid non essential travel, however you may still travel if wish to do so. We will be contacting all customers regardless of the destination they are travelling to and will discuss what options you have.

I am booked to travel to a destination that is not included in the Green List?

We will contact you and discuss your options as you would be travelling against government advice. Travel Insurance may not cover you, so it is essential that you check your travel insurance policy.

I’m still worried, can I cancel my booking?

Greece Holidays

They say that nowhere in Greece can boast beaches like those of Halkidiki. The regions has the perfect combination of that distinctive Greek light, unspoiled landscapes, colours and fragrances. With a glorious natural setting, shaped like Poseidon’s trident, three beautiful peninsulas, Kassandra, Sithonia and Athos Halkidiki is a treat for visitors. Lush green forests that reach right down to the beach; golden sunlight reflected in the turquoise waters; a traditional style with a rich gastronomic and cultural heritage. Endless coves, unique architectural sites, perfectly preserved Christian monument and a host of unexplored treasures all add their own rich touch to the unique canvas that is Halkidiki. Among this intoxicating blend of blue and green, you will find traditional seafront taverns, little hidden treasures and marinas along the coast as well as some unique archaeological sites. These include Ancient Olynthus,Stágeira, the birthplace of Aristotle and, of course, Mount Athos, a unique Christian monument, untouched by the passing of time and a living monument to Byzantine culture, standing in the midst of untouched nature. Halkidiki is also home to many earthly paradises for those who love mountains. Paths for mountain biking and walking cut their way through the forests of pine, oak, fir and chestnut trees. This is a place where all your senses will come to life, whether on the endless expanses of sand of the fashionable, cosmopolitan beaches, or in the intimacy of the many secluded bays and coves. The scent of the pine trees and the salt brine of the sea combine to relax the body and spirit, leaving you at peace to enjoy the grandeur of the regions famed sunrises and sunsets.
