Greek and foreign travelers who choose to spend their Christmas holidays in Greece are beginning to face problems finding an unoccupied hotel room in any of the popular winter destinations. Hotel occupancy in destinations like Arachova, Kalavrita, Kaimaktsalan has already reached 90% with hotel owners stating that in the next few days it will reach 100%.
The capital controls and alluring package deals by hotel owners have kept Greek holiday vacationers within Greece and brought foreign tourists to Greece, according to estimations the weekends of Christmas and New Year’s will be overbooked.
Optimistic about winter tourism this Christmas is Xenofon Petropolous who is in charge of the communication office of the Association of Greek Tourist Enterprises (AGTE). He stressed that the combination of service and price offered by Greek hotel owners is a huge boost to Greek tourism.
