There is no doubt that it is a difficult time for the country’s politicians and a worrying time for some residents as Greece attempts to avoid bankruptcy and exclusion for the Eurozone, but this is not a reason to cancel your holiday plans.

A luxury yacht charter in the Mediterranean will allow you to leave the worries of everyday life behind and the Greek financial crisis will seem like a world away, even when you are swimming off its shores.

There is no reason for tourists not to travel to the country. In fact, a loss of income will only add to the worries of many Greeks who rely on tourism to survive. The only thing you may need to consider is making sure that, in the current climate, you have some cash to hand.

The Foreign Office is advising all travellers to ensure they have enough euro notes to cover emergencies and delays, rather than relying solely on cash machines and their credit cards.

This is a precautionary measure to make sure that you do not face any problems should you encounter a cash machine that has run out of money as some Greek people seek to access their funds.

Hopefully, this will have allayed any concerns you may have about taking a trip to Greece but if you have any questions or need further advice simply get in touch with the experts at Yacht Getaways today.
