Greece to reopen for tourists in June

Greece to reopen for tourists in June

The Greek tourist season will kick off next month, with international charter flights to popular locations resuming in July, according to the Greek Prime Minister. Click here to read the full story.

"The tourism period begins on 15 June, when seasonal hotels can reopen," Kyriakos Mitsotakis said this week.

The coronavirus pandemic threatens to ruin Greece's tourism industry, which is vital to the country's economy.

The Greek announcement came as EU tourism ministers agreed to do "whatever it takes for the quick and full recovery of European tourism".

As restrictions aimed at minimising the spread of the virus are gradually eased across Europe, Mr Mitsotakis said that Greece had shown by its handling of the crisis that it was a "passport of safety, credibility and health".

To encourage tourism, Greece is also making travel cheaper by temporarily reducing value added tax (VAT) on all transport - flights, bus journeys and rail travel - to 13% from 24%.

The popular Mediterranean destination will also offer sample coronavirus tests to incoming tourists, although it is not clear if these will be made available to all.

Green Motion Greece have a network of over 60 operational car rental locations across the Greek mainland and islands, including Athens, Thessaloniki, Samos, Mykonos, Kefalonia, Paxos, Crete, Rhodes, and Corfu.
