Olympic Holidays has posted answers to frequently asked questions on its Website, in an effort to reassure agents and travellers that Greece is a good holiday choice this summer.

The operator does not expect Greece to leave the Euro – at least not this summer – but says it is prepared for whatever happens. 

The company's commercial director, Photis Lambrianides, said:  “The politicians’ failure to form a government has created further uncertainty, particularly about whether or not Greece will stay in the Euro.
“All arrangements with our main partners are in readiness, should this situation develop.  For instance, our hotel and other ground contracts would be converted to drachmas.
“Right now, Greece represents the best-ever value, with hoteliers bending over backwards to keep the tourism industry going, and the holiday pound worth up to 25% more in resort.
“Even if Greece leaves the Euro, it will not happen overnight and there would be a transition period during which both currencies would be in circulation.  Throughout the Greek islands, local hoteliers, bar-owners and everyone in the tourism industry would continue to do what they do so well: welcome holidaymakers with open arms.”

The Greek FAQS are in the Travel Update section of the operator’s Website, and answers questions including: Should I wait until things quieten down?, What happens if the currency changes from Euro to Drachma? and Is local transport affected?
