You know that ‘best time to visit Greece’ myth? Unless you’ve lived in the country or spent time as a local would, you might have fallen for it.

Greek summer, yes, it’s awesome. Nobody can deny this. But if you’re thinking August marks the end, think again and keep reading for inspiration and visual evidence.

Meanwhile, whatever month you choose for your trip, there is still time to benefit from Delphi Bank’s annual Foreign Exchange Campaign.

Some perks of visiting Greece off high season

  • Slimmer crowds

Not everyone enjoys the packed with crowds sokakia (narrow streets) of the Greek island summer experience

Soaring temperatures bring soaring crowds and August is typically the peak month for bookings in accommodation and everything else.

  • Access to more destinations

Feeling adventurous? Give an autumn/spring trip to Greece a go.

It could be a good excuse to try something new at a quiet time of the year.

Moving past the cliché of ‘best’ time to visit Greece makes it easier to discover off-beaten track destinations. Here, the not-so-hidden gem of the lake of Kastoria in Northwestern Greece, listed as a “Natural Monument of outstanding beauty” by the Greek Ministry of Culture. Photo: Pixabay
  • More chances for authentic hospitality

When a tourist haven reaches capacity, it doesn’t only feel crammed for you as a visitor. It is also quite busy for the local who works there.

Inevitably, things get more automatic when it comes to service and hospitality experiences.

Late spring is considered a good time to visit Meteora, for crowds are less hectic then. Plus, nature is at its best. The hanging monasteries are nothing sort of majestic and UNESCO knows it, having designated a handful of them as World Heritage Sites. Photo: Pixabay.

Back home after a European summer experience?

No time is better for that long-awaited trip overseas than when the opportunity arises.

If you’ve had yours already and returned with some extra foreign currency in your pocket, you can turn it back to Australian dollars fee-free until 2 September.

As part of the Foreign Exchange Campaign running till that date, Delphi Bank offers buy-back any of your unused Euro, UK Pound or US Dollars at competitive rates with zero bank fees.

Value for money

If you’re flexible with your dates, consider a visit beyond the typical ‘Greek summer’ months of June, July, August.

Chances are you will find:

–     Cheaper rates in accommodation
–     Discounted prices/Offers
