Best cheap deals to the Greek Islands from £228pp – as hopes grow for travel corridor from UK

GREECE was one of the most popular foreign holiday destinations for Brits last year, thanks to the way that it managed Covid – and this year isn't looking any different.

While it won't be until April 12 that Brits discover if they'll be going on holiday abroad this summer, Greece is looking like a good prospect for a break, as ministers hold talks with the getaway hotspot.

The Prime Minister announced this week that trips abroad will definitely be no earlier than May 17.

However, Greece has previously been in talks with UK ministers about welcoming tourists who have been vaccinated to the country this summer – without them having to have negative coronavirus tests.

If you want to plan ahead, some of the best deals to the Greek islands are:

  • Seven-nights at TUI BLUE Atlantica Belvedere Resort, Kos half-board in June from £640pp
  • Seven-nights at Ideal apartments, Crete self-catering in June from £323pp
  • Seven-night Jet2 Holidays self-catering breaks in June from £299pp
  • Seven-nights Jet2 Holidays all-inclusive breaks in June from £499pp
  • Seven-nights at Corifo Village, Corfu self-catering from £228pp
  • Seven-nights at Olive Garden, Rhodes all-inclusive from £429pp
  • Seven-nights at Karavados Beach Hotel, Kefalonia self-catering in June from £388pp
  • Seven-nights at Emerald Studios, Thassos self-catering in June from £399pp
  • Seven-nights at Villa Christina apartments self-catering in June from £479pp
  • Seven-nights at Macedonia Hotel, Zante in June from £264pp
  • Seven-nights at Mary Bill Apartments, Santorini in June from £382pp

There are discounts to a number of popular destinations in the Greek Islands including Santorini, Rhodes and Corfu.

The cheapest deal is for seven-nights at Corifo Village in Corfu on a self-catering basis from £228pp.

Greece joins Spain in offering hope for UK tourists returning by the summer with fewer travel restrictions if they have had the jab.

However, both Spain and Portugal are currently seeing Covid rates surging which may delay travel to the countries, and not a lot of the continent has been vaccinated yet.

Trips to the Greek islands have been banned since January 4 when England went into a third national lockdown due to surging coronavirus infections.

During the lockdown, non-essential travel was banned meaning no holidays in the UK or abroad.

Despite Brits' love of the Greek islands, Spain leads the charge when it comes to the most popular destinations – with Tenerife and Alicante on the Costa Blanca in the top three, as well as Turkey.
