Greece remains a popular holiday destination despite the economic crisis. At least, among British travelers. According to a recent survey, 66% of the respondents consider Greece as a safe destination. And half of British travelers over 60 said that they would be happy to travel to Greece and thus “independently to support local businesses.” 21% of the 60+ said that they would travel to Greece specifically to help the country’s economy.
However, almost 71% cent of Millennials said they preferred to travel with a trusted holiday provider because of security concerns.
They also suggested that the best way to support Greece would be to lower prices on flights and hotels.
The survey shows also that young travels are more socially conscious than their older peers.
What is especially interestingly is that “more than 50% of survey respondents feel that if Greece exits the EU, it would have a positive impact on holiday prices, meaning lower prices and fewer crowds.”
PS I will certainly keep in mind that a Grexit would boost our tourism industry and I have to admit I have no idea whether Varoufakis took this factor into consideration while he was working out his famous Plan X.
