Travel Tips for Traveling Safely in Greece

Looking to travel to Greece in 2022? Here are some tips to help make your trip as safe as possible! With its beautiful beaches and rich culture, Greece is a popular destination for travelers. However, you should be aware of the potential dangers before you go. By following these simple tips, you can enjoy your vacation without worry.

Use Public Transportation

One of the very first tips on this list, if you are planning on traveling safely in Greece in 2022, would be to make use of public transportation if you are going to be traveling a relatively long distance within the city. This is even more important if you plan on island hopping and there are many ferries departing from Agia Marina that can take you where you need to go.

One thing to bear in mind when it comes to making use of taxis within Greece is to always insist on change; taxi drivers might claim they don’t have change so they can pocket your big notes. Another thing to ensure is that the taxi driver turns on the meter and doesn’t just give you an arbitrary amount at the end of the trip.

Don’t Walk Around with Your Phone Out

The next tip on this list is pretty obvious and should go without saying, and that is to avoid walking around the various cities with your phone out. While this might seem pretty obvious, you are going to need your phone for many things, such as the map, or even to translate what someone is saying to you, or when ordering food.

However, walking around with your phone out will make you an easy target for petty criminals. Having said that, to also be safe when traveling around Greece, you should ensure that your phone is charged, and it might also be a good idea to have a power bank, as well as a physical map. The last thing that you want is to get lost without your phone to show you where to go.

Make Photocopies of Important Documents

Another very important tip when traveling in Greece in 2022, as well as anywhere in the world, would be to make photocopies of all the important documents that you would need to verify your identity. This isn’t something that you might have thought about, but in the unlikely event that something happens, such as your wallet or handbag being stolen, or misplaced, you don’t want to be stranded without your passport.

Having said that, after you have taken photocopies of all your important documents, you should take the copies with you and leave the actual documents in your hotel room. This might sound like overkill, but it has helped many travelers avoid potentially distressing situations.

Use Official Tour Guides

Of all the tips on this list, one of the most important tips if you want to travel safely in Greece, as well as any country in the world, would be to use official tour guides. Unfortunately, the harsh reality of the situation is that being a tourist makes you a vulnerable target for anyone looking to make a quick buck.

Many unsavory characters might pretend to be tour guides and offer to give you a tour of the area except cash up front and then run off. By making use of official tour guides, not only will you be getting valuable information and having a good time, but you will also avoid being ripped off.

Don’t Travel in Peak Season

Finally, the last tip on this list for traveling safely in Greece is less about safety and more about having a good time. One of the best ways that you can enjoy your experience whilst in Greece would be to not travel during the peak season, which would be during the summer, that is, July and August.

During this time, Greece, particularly Athens, is packed with tourists and, as a result, accommodation prices are increased. Not only will it be more expensive, but it will also be an unpleasant experience since all of the popular tourist destinations will be surrounded by throngs of people. The quieter months just so happened to also be the cheapest months to visit Greece, which would be September, October, and November.
