Greek island hopping becoming popular during the winter

Greek island hopping becoming popular during the winter

British holidaymakers travelling on cheap flights to Greece are island hopping throughout the year and not just between April and October.

This is according to the Greek National Tourist Office, whose spokesman said that the best time to visit the Mediterranean nation in terms of flight connections is between the beginning of spring and the end of summer.

He explained that efforts are being made to prolong the season into the winter, during which Greece remains relatively mild, which the organisation believes will allow "people to enjoy the Greek islands throughout the year".

"Greek island hopping has always been popular," the spokesman commented.

"In Greece there are more than 3,000 islands and islets, inviting tourists from all over the world to enjoy Greece’s sunshine, mild climate, breathtaking sceneries, a variety of unique experiences and delicious food."

According to data from Skyscanner, Greece is the seventh most searched-for destination in terms of flights by UK travellers.
