How much are flights to Greece?
From cities around Australia, you won't have to fork out more than $2,000 for flights to Athens. If this is not your final destination and you plan to fly to islands around Greece, be sure to consider the cost of extra flights. Low-carrier European airlines do offer domestic flights, so although these fares won't break the bank, it's worth considering how much all of your flights will add up to. To bring down the flight fares, keep an eye out for flights with a longer duration time as they tend to be a few hundred dollars cheaper.
When is the cheapest time to fly to Greece?
The cheapest time to jet off to Greece is in January and February. Travelling to Athens at the start of the year is ideal for avoiding crowds, visiting historical sites and museums and having the best opportunity to book tours and activities. January and February sit within low season, which means you won't be competing with as many travellers for flights, accommodations and activities. The weather may not be as nice as what it appears in images when you do a quick Google search of Greece, as grey skies and rain will be frequent, but if you're heading to Greece for a cultural experience, then saving some extra dollars will be worth it.
How far in advance should I book my flights to Greece?
If you're travelling from Sydney or Melbourne, you'll find booking seven weeks in advance gives you the greatest opportunity to nab a great price. Travellers departing from Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane are more likely to secure a good deal when booking three to five weeks in advance.
